Clube Futebol Benfica is not just about football. Or rather, European football, traditional, traditional, whatever you want to call it. Such as Record Challenge ParkPromising to attract children and adults on May 28, the royal game in Portugal is not limited to. But then what did I do with Fufu? Play football … American! Yeah Al that sounds pretty crap to me, Looks like Tom Brady aint for me either.
In fact, it is a football that really works for everyone. And it was easily felt from the moment we stepped into the training of the Lesbos Devils, who were at no time awkward with our reporting team, even if it was the last session to develop a decisive game according to the team’s wishes. Why not By Bernardo Solepa, who is also a quarterback.
And why is it for everyone? Because there are all kinds of people in this game that people outside of the United States are loving the most. Tall, short, thin, thick, fast, slow, more talented, less talented. “The most important thing is dedication and determination,” says Bernardo.
“Just look at our team and you can see that we have all kinds of people. There is room for everyone. But let’s choose our position to exercise,” the coach and quarterback pointed out. At the meter and 69kg, I joined a wide group of receivers to try to get some routes and pass.
“Come on! Run 5 yards and it’s over,” he shouted. Luckily for me, I like football and I already understand the conversation. Also, he could always copy other receivers. Some passed out of hand, but I ended with positive comments, one with a left-handed ‘catch’ and the other with a trick.
It’s hard to block
Playing wide receiver is not just about receiving the ball. You also need to know how to block in dramas where we do not have or it is running. It was also time to practice with one of the devil’s ‘companions’, but fortunately he was good and did not want to break me in half.
At one point, as good as the team showed, it was time to put myself aside and see who really knows how to play. With physical skill and even thinking of memorizing the names of tricks, he was presenting a show. But what was my performance? I don’t really know what to think.
“There is a way, but you get more out of training. I don’t mind setting up free security to create some obstacles,” says Bernardo. what is the meaning of this? I was not bad, but I am defending against attack!
