Last week was the all day Metal and Muscle Expo and our team played against the San Antonio strap team. This year, it was much easier to get a point against team 1 of San Antonio which is also an easier team to beat then team 2. The first game my coach was relying on me to do well so l got aggressive but, sometimes a little too aggressive because I got two penalties. The final score in that game was 3:3 (a tie) and we had over time too but it was only for three minutes instead of twenty minutes. The second game was challenging because we played against the harder team (team 2). They dominated our team. The score was like 1:6 and I think that's much better than last year. The last game we played against Team 1 again and this time our team won! The score was 3:2 and the cool thing is that I scored two back to back goals in that game. The main problem that was going on in all three games is that my chair is too slow. Especially when I get a break away and l can't catch up to the ball! What l want is a real power soccer power chair, like San Antonio has. You have to have a huge grant to get it, I think they are close to $9,000. Our team has only one player that has an official power soccer chair and their team has 4 or so and then they also have power chairs for adults which are faster as well. So we really don't have much of a chance against them when it comes to speed.
My name is Cameron Broyles, I'm 16 years old and I started my blog 5 years ago when I was 11. I have paraplegic cerebral palsy and cannot communicate in a traditional fashion. I am home-schooled now but I used to go to main stream public school. My love of exploring first began with going on field trips to learn about history. I play power soccer and it's become my sport of choice! I am originally from Texas but now I live in Colorado and LOVE it! I love to travel and explore but the majority of times it is much more difficult than the average person. I want this blog to not only be my mouthpiece for my friends and family but also give some ideas and maybe light a spark for other people with disabilities to get out and explore life! I was first coerced into starting a blog from my mom and dad and I have to admit that sometimes it's not my favorite thing to do but what I love most about having a blog for these past 5 years is that it's a daily reminder of all my blessings from God and how grateful and thankful I am for everything I have in my life.
