A cloud of frost escaped
from the mike backer's mouth:
"seventy-five base cover two."
Walking up to the line of scrimmage
I wiped the sweat from my face
with mud covered hands.
Buttoning my chin strap,
I watched the tight end
line up on the right.
I was on the weak side,
in a tight five, on the outside
eye of the offensive tackle.
I fired off the ball late,
prepared for a blow from the tackle.
He just bumped me and released.
My eyes never left the quarterback
when he began to roll out,
I flattened out,
trying to cut him off,
forcing him back inside.
I almost caught up with the quarterback
and reached out for him.
A train ran over me.
a one-hundred-and-forty-pound split end.
He stood over me. He was crowing.
I rolled off my back,
and with a throbbing head,
saw the cornerback
lean over, extend his arm,
pull me to my feet.
Here’s what’s next.
