YMCA Athlete of the Month – Ritiak  By: Berkley Whelpton

The countries that invented football include America Canada and China.  One person I know that is really good at football is Ritiak.

He knows how to play foot ball. Well duh! He is a quarterback in his team.  He can tackle a zombie!!!!!!! (If the zombie was playing football) He is great at tossing to the plates. He is so great at doing touchdowns they can’t even tackle him. All of his team loves him. When he is outside they do not pick the teams over and over again they have the same team!!

Soccer Master By: Bhuvan Dubey

One person who is good at soccer is Karanvir.  Karanvir knows how to play soccer very well.  He also knows what we need to wear when we play soccer 🙂 No set teams. No helmets.

“We wear gloves when we play real soccer, like when you are a goalie” he says.  He likes to be the goalie 🙂 when we play soccer. He also likes to protect the net when the ball comes towards it.  Karanvir like to play this sport and he knows how to play it very well.
