Football (Soccer) Tournament Shots!

I am enjoying the time spent with these High-School age players.  I am the coach of the Remian Raiders.

It was kind of muddy to be playing but the tournament had to go on. 
Good save!

This looks tired but still smiling even though my team won 6-0!

And last but not least, Riley, the 4 year-old.  The MCC director here in Dhaka says that when I was in College he thinks I was a lot like Riley!

A special time.  Most of the celebration will have to wait till I recover from Dengue Fever.
