Kid Reporter Peyton: The NFL FLAG Experience

Aloha from the Hawaiian Islands! My name is Peyton. I am very proud and belong to the PSH Packers flag football team.

As the newest member of the team, it almost feels like I’ve been with the team forever. I love the family like aura of our Packers team. It makes the game of flag football so much FUN! Whether it's flag football, basketball, volleyball or even the martial art of Taekwondo, I am very passionate about all of the sports that I play.

I love playing flag football because I enjoy catching, throwing, and running with the football. I love it even more because I love "TEAM" sports. It’s a great avenue to gain new friends. I enjoy sharing glory and defeats together with my friends. Intangible life lesson values such as hard work, determination, perseverance, and humbleness that I’ve learned while playing. The sport of flag football has molded me to be a great player and good citizen.

As my parents have always reminded me, "Be humble. Be a leader to those that are not as good as you and learn from those who are better than you!" I’ve been playing flag football since the age of 5 and still enjoy it at the age of 12.

 There are many things about NFL FLAG football that I could say are my favorites. However, my ultimate favorite is practice and games because I get to learn, play, goof around, and have fun! Everything a kid desires. I am blessed that I am able to play different positions.

My favorite of all positions is rushing the quarterback. I love challenging him or her and causing havoc on the field. I also find it rewarding making a remarkable catch and running it in for a touchdown. On the defensive side of the field, I fight to play the safety or corner position because I love leaping for interceptions.

This past November, we represented Hawaii in a big way by winning the Regionals in Houston, Texas. It was a dream come true for myself, my teammates, and the Packers team. In freezing conditions unlike home, our team was able to perform and play like Champions and was crowned Champions in the 12U Division. It was a privilege to have met Chris Myers, former center, Houston Texans. It was another dream come true moment for me. It was delighting to see him interview players on the field. I felt real.

Excited for the NFL FLAG National Championships at Super Bowl 50? Oh yes I am! I am ecstatic and anxious to represent my Packers team and our home – HAWAII! I feel so privileged and honored to showcase the skills our Hawaii athletes possess. It is an opportunity that any 12 year old would be grateful for. I cannot wait to meet other professional athletes that I know shared the same goals and dreams like mine as a kid.

Thank you NFL PLAY 60 and NFL FLAG organizations for giving kids the opportunity to learn the sport of flag football and organizing Championship tournaments. Opportunities like this can be rare and few. A big “Mahalo – Thank You” to my Coaches – Ladd, Kalani, and Edgar and the rest of my teammates for allowing me to be a part of a great team and organization. The journey of winning 6 games and winning the Regionals in Houston Texas will be cherished forever. Let’s continue the success and bring home the National Championship Title! GO GREEN BAY PACKERS!

Kid Reporter: Thoughts on 2014 NFL draft?

  The draft this year was an overall success. Many good players that showed up big time in college got drafted and were put in pretty good positions as far as teams if you ask me. There were a couple of surprises in the rounds that some players got picked such as AJ McCarron and Aaron Murray. They went in the 2nd round which was pretty late. These were two of the best quarterbacks in college last year. This draft compares to other is both positive and negative ways. It compares to other dra

 

The draft this year was an overall success. Many good players that showed up big time in college got drafted and were put in pretty good positions as far as teams if you ask me. There were a couple of surprises in the rounds that some players got picked such as AJ McCarron and Aaron Murray. They went in the 2nd round which was pretty late. These were two of the best quarterbacks in college last year. This draft compares to other is both positive and negative ways. It compares to other drafts in a negative way because some of the better players were drafted very late and low in the draft while others drafted really good players towards the beginning. The positive thing is that the draft picks that came through this year don't seem like they'll be a bust in the NFL. Most of them seem like they'll have a successful season wherever they play. This is my take on the 2014 NFL draft.

Kid Reporters: What Was the Biggest Surprise to You?

  The biggest Week 10 surprise to me was the Rams beating the Colts 38-8. A key player in that game was Tavon Austin with 3 touchdowns, finally doing what he does best. He returned 98 yard punt and with his break away speed no one on the colts could catch him. He also caught 2 touchdown passes from Kellen Clemens. This was a shock because the Rams haven't been having the best season they could have. Only 4-6 record and they have potential to do better with the threats they have on offense.

A big part is missing though. The quarterback Sam Bradford is hurt which he was role player for his team. In conclusion, this is my surprise for the week.

Kid Reporter: Were You Surprised by The Record of Nick Foles?

  Nick Foles did surprise me by tieing this record for most touchdown passes thrown in a game. This is unusual seeing a second string quarterback come in and tieing a passing record for the NFL. You would think it would be an all-star quarterback like Peyton Manning or Aaron Rodgers.   Nick Foles strengths are obviously passing and he isn't so hesitant in the pocket. He isn't a fast quarterback which makes the difference between him, and Michael Vick. That is why I don't thin

Nick Foles strengths are obviously passing and he isn't so hesitant in the pocket. He isn't a fast quarterback which makes the difference between him, and Michael Vick. That is why I don't think he deserves to start because Vick has great passing game, but he can also get out of the pocket when it starts to collapse. I do think Vick will come back and display his talents. He always been able to do that. I think Vick has been considered a good quarterback throughout his years. In conclusion, this is my in take on the Eagles and what should happen in the quarterback depth chart.

How could the Patriots utilize Tebow?

  If Tim Tebow makes the team I think he'll either play quarterback or tight end. Tim Tebow has the size to play tight end because he is 6'3 and 236 pounds. This shows he is a pretty big quarterback. The reason I say tight end is because he has the size and height, he has good speed, and the Patriots already have a legend quarterback Tom Brady.   The reason I might say quarterback is because he played QB in the NFL and in college.

The reason I might say quarterback is because he played QB in the NFL and in college. The conflict is the Patriots already have a good quarterback, so Tim Tebow won't get a lot of playing time.



In conclusion, this how I think the Patriots could utilize Tim Tebow. He is a great player and is very athletic. just can't wait to see how we'll he does in New England

What quarterback would you choose if the game was on the line?

 The quarterback I trust the most with the game on the line is Cam Newton. He is a triple threat quarterback. He can run, pass, and has great field vision. Newton is a big quarterback, so when he runs, he is hard to bring down. He is also fast for his height. Last season, he had 3,869 yards, 19 touchdowns, and 280 completions. As you see, these are outstanding stats for a quarterback, especially with how many total yards he had. I think Cam Newton is one of the best in the league right now. He i

I think Cam Newton is one of the best in the league right now. He is 6'5, so he definitely has strength and power. He is also accurate on his passes with many leading to touchdowns.

In conclusion, this is why I choose quarterback Cam Newton if the game was on the line. He is smart, quick, and athletic. Having these three skills are a deadly combination.

Which NFL conference do you think has the best teams?

I think the best division in the NFL is the NFC East. This division includes the Washington Redskins, Dallas Cowboys, Philadelphia Eagles, and New York Giants. This is a tough division. All of these teams have many key role players.    For the Cowboys, one of their key players is Dez Bryant. Last season he had 92 receptions, 12 touchdowns, and 1,382 yards.

For the Cowboys, one of their key players is Dez Bryant. Last season he had 92 receptions, 12 touchdowns, and 1,382 yards. These are amazing stats in a season for a player that got hurt towards the end of the season.

 

The next team with a key player is the Washington Redskins. They have the triple threat- Robert Griffin III. He was an amazing rookie quarter back last year. I gave him that nickname because he is a threat to throw, scramble, and he has great QB vision. His stats from last year are 7 rushing TD's, 20 passing TDs, and 258 completed passes. For a rookie, this guy really put on a show last year!

The next key player is the Giants’ Victor Cruz. He was a huge asset for the Giants’ offense. His stats from last year were 86 receptions, 1,092 yards, and 10 TDs. These are exceptional stats for a receiver.

 

Lastly, the key role player for the Eagles was Jeremy Maclin. Maclin last season had 69 receptions, 857 yards, and 7 TDs. These are good stats for a receiver who also had to share touches with DeSean Jackson.

In conclusion, this is why I think the NFC East has the best division. They have many good players on each team in this conference. I can't wait until the season starts!

Free Agency

I am surprised about free agency so far. Many good players have been released because teams need salary cap room. One free agent that is going around is the Defensive End that played with the Broncos, Eric Dumervil. SportsCenter kept talking about Dumervil being a free agent and going to another team. Another free agent signing I'm surprised about is Ed Reed. The Ravens released Ed Reed and now he is on the Texans. The Texans picked up a great player that knows the game and plays the safety posi

Another free agent signing I'm surprised about is Ed Reed. The Ravens released Ed Reed and now he is on the Texans. The Texans picked up a great player that knows the game and plays the safety position well. He had 58 solo tackles and 4 interceptions last year. He also played really well in the Super Bowl.

In conclusion, I am surprised about all these signings from different players. I'm looking forward to seeing all these new players on different teams. I also hope to see a good season in the NFL.

Who Do You Think Will Win The Super Bowl?

I think the Ravens will end up winning the Super Bowl. They have amazing coaching and defense. They have a good offense but they aren't always consistent on that side of the ball. On defense they have tremendous players such as Ray Lewis, Terrell Suggs, Courtney Upshaw, and Ed Reed. Courtney Upshaw is a rookie and had a big game versus the Packers by tipping two of Aaron Rogers' passes and one ending up as an interception by Terrell Suggs off the tip.

On defense they have tremendous players such as Ray Lewis, Terrell Suggs, Courtney Upshaw, and Ed Reed. Courtney Upshaw is a rookie and had a big game versus the Packers by tipping two of Aaron Rogers' passes and one ending up as an interception by Terrell Suggs off the tip. Ray Lewis has also been amazing during the playoffs. He has been motivating the defense to do well and it seems to be working. Same with Terrell Suggs -- these two linebackers are scary to go head up with. They are both play smart and know what to do when they touch the field.

With their amazing defense I think they will stop Frank Gore and Colin Kaepernick's running game. I also think they could stop the passing game especially with Ed Reed over top helping out.

 

In conclusion, I can't wait to see a good Super Bowl. These are two good teams that have really good players. I think it will be a close game at the end, but I hope the Ravens end up winning.

What Did You Think of the Divisional Playoffs?

I thought the divisional playoffs were interesting. My favorite team won the division but lost yesterday to the 49ers. They Falcons either way had a good season. They went 14-4 this season which is a good season. They played well both games. When they played the Seahawks they stopped Russell Wilson's running game and stopped Marshawn Lynch running game.

I thought the divisional playoffs were interesting. My favorite team won the division but lost yesterday to the 49ers. They Falcons either way had a good season. They went 14-4 this season which is a good season.

They played well both games. When they played the Seahawks they stopped Russell Wilson's running game and stopped Marshawn Lynch running game. The second half the Falcons intensity went down so the Seahawks were slowly coming back and end up taking the lead. All thanks to Matt Bryant to kick a 49 yard field goal to win. Another player that helped was Julio Jones with his interception at the end.

A disappointment was the 49ers beat the Packers by 14 points. Everyone thought that the game would be closer, the Packers couldn't stop Colin Kaepernick. He had over 100 yards rushing and passing.

In conclusion, I think my team had a good season. Next year I hope to see the Falcons do the same but win and go to the Super Bowl. Even though the Falcons didn't win I plan to see a good Super Bowl this year. The Ravens and 49ers are two good teams and I can't wait until they play!

Did Your Team Make the Playoffs?

My team is the Falcons. The Falcons did make the playoffs. They went into the playoffs with a 13-3 record clinching first in their division. The Falcons came out with a new game plan this year and it worked. The Falcons had many impact players to get them this good record such as Julio Jones who had 79 receptions, 1,198 yards, and 10 touchdowns. These are good stats for a wide receiver that hasn't been in the league long. Another impact player is Tony Gonzalez who had 93 receptions, 930 yards, a

These are good stats for a wide receiver that hasn't been in the league long. Another impact player is Tony Gonzalez who had 93 receptions, 930 yards, and 8 touchdowns. This also good stats as a tight end.

In the playoffs I have hope that the Falcons can go far. If they keep playing like their playing they have potential to go far. If they don't go far the team I would root for is the 49ers. The 49ers I choose because they're my second favorite team.

In conclusion, I hope the Falcons go far in the playoffs. As I said before if they keep playing well they will be able to be a lot of teams in the playoffs. We will see the outcome of this playoff, of what they can do. My hope is to have a good season.

Falcons Remain Undefeated

The game I think was the most exciting was the Falcons versus the Cowboys. The score ended up to 19-13 Falcons. This was a one touchdown and at the end. The Falcons still remain undefeated with an 9-0 record.Roddy White had a really good game and so did Julio Jones. Roddy White has good season stats also. I feel he has done well every game.

What Are Your QB Power Rankings?

If I could do a quarterback power ranking, my #1 quarterback would be Matt Ryan. It's not because he's on my favorite team, but he has done really well this season. He has led his team to a 7-0 record right now.He has 2,018 passing yards, he is rated a 103, and threw 17 touchdowns. These are really good stats to only play seven games.

He has 2,018 passing yards, he is rated a 103, and threw 17 touchdowns. These are really good stats to only play seven games. He also has major targets such as Roddy White and Tony Gonzalez. They both been having a great season.

The person I would have in the bust would be Ryan Tannehill of Miami Dolphins. He has 1,472 yards, rated as 53 overall, and has 4 touchdowns. These aren't good stats for an NFL quarterback. The Miami Dolphins are 4-11 and that isn't a good record.

In conclusion, this is why I pick my top and my busts. If you compare both quarterback stats and record there's a big gap. I hope Matt Ryan keeps this style of play up and lead the Falcons to a good season.

What Game Are You Looking Forward To?

I'm looking forward to watching the Falcons play the Eagles. I feel this will be a good game because you have two premier teams and quarterbacks going head-to-head.

He doesn't seem to panic when the pocket starts to collapse because he can get out of it in a hurry. In the 40-yard dash he runs a 4.38 and that means he can flat out run!

In conclusion, this is the reason why I chose RGIII as the rookie that has the most potential. I hope to see RGIII do well this season and rise above all.

What Position Would You Play If You Were in the NFL?

Another reason is that I would get a lot of yards if I played wide receiver.   When you are playing wide receiver, you don't get injured as much as you would at running back because you can get banged up running dives right up the middle.

When you are playing wide receiver, you don't get injured as much as you would at running back because you can get banged up running dives right up the middle. Wide receiver is a fun position because you get to moss defensive backs.

My favorite wide receiver is Calvin Johnson because he is really good. Last season he had 96 receptions, 1,681 yards and 16 touchdowns. He is the go-to guy for the Lions and is a role model to me.

 

In conclusion, wide receiver is the position I would play if I were in the NFL. Calvin Johnson is also a good role model for receivers. If I were you and you need a role model, Calvin Johnson is the one.

Falcons Preseason

The Atlanta Falcons have had a pretty good preseason so far. Their preseason record is 1-2 and they have one more game against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

2012 Falcons Players

I am glad the Falcons resigned Tony Gonzalez. First of all, he is amazing and has set many records. He was huge asset to the team last year for first down completions and touchdowns.

A free agent that I'm glad the Falcons signed is Asante Samuel. He is one of the best cornerbacks in the league. He is a shut down corner, which means a lot of times you throw to his side it's broken up. I feel that he will be a big time playmaker for the team.

In conclusion, these are the players that I'm glad the Falcons signed. I'm glad they signed other players but I think that these players will be big time players towards the team. I'm ready to watch how the Falcon's do this year!

What makes Peyton so good?

Now that Denver took my Colts quarterback, I want to let the Colorado fans know what they got. Peyton Manning is a master at this position because of how he thinks things out. Each play has so many scenarios that "could" happen and Peyton knows each one of them.   So, before he takes the snap it's like he plays through each of those scenarios in his head which makes Peyton prepared for anything.

Now that Denver took my Colts quarterback, I want to let the Colorado fans know what they got. Peyton Manning is a master at this position because of how he thinks things out. Each play has so many scenarios that "could" happen and Peyton knows each one of them.

 

So, before he takes the snap it's like he plays through each of those scenarios in his head which makes Peyton prepared for anything. If you watch his face and eyes while preparing for the snap you can see him analyzing everyone's possible move during the situation at hand.

 

Then, watch some of the other quarterbacks; some just take the snap and go with the flow.....kind of like a pro-golfer, some practice hitting the ball from every inch of the course and some just practice from where their ball lands....BUT you never know where the ball is going to land!


On another note, I can't wait to see what Andrew Luck brings to the Colts.....training camp will be awesome this year!


Stay cool fans while getting your Play 60 on!

They have a pretty good defensive line and a strong secondary  of linebackers but could definitely improve.

 

On the offensive side the Falcons need to work on the offensive line. Half of the time Matt Ryan is under pressure in the pocket because the O-line can't block. A quarterback isn't supposed to feel rushed if the offensive line is blocking.They also need to adjust their passing game a little. It's fairly good but sometimes Matt Ryan doesn't have anybody to pass it to because the receivers can't get open. They just need to get a little more aggressive.

 

This is what I think the Falcons should work on over the off-season. If they get these things down their game would really improve.

San Francisco Scores at Draft

The team that did well in the Draft is the San Francisco 49ers. They got one of the top scouts in the Draft, LaMichael James from the Oregon Ducks. He was one of the fastest running backs in college. He has quick feet and break away speed. If you let him get a couple of feet in front of you most likely you won't catch him. The 49ers already have lethal weapons and they are adding another one to the team. LaMichael James might have to rely on his speed to get past defenders. They also drafted Tre

The 49ers already have lethal weapons and they are adding another one to the team. LaMichael James might have to rely on his speed to get past defenders. They also drafted Trenton Robinson, a free safety that is really good. He is going to be a huge influence on their defensive success.

In conclusion, I think the 49ers did well in the Draft because their Draft picks will have new talent on both sides of the ball.

Play 60 in the Summer

The weather has been terrific the past couple of weeks and my favorite season, Summer is coming around. The sport that I am looking forward to is baseball. I state this because baseball is a sport played during warm weather and it also is the sport I'm playing right now. In baseball I play shortstop and play for a travel team called the Georgia Grays.

The weather has been terrific the past couple of weeks and my favorite season, Summer is coming around. The sport that I am looking forward to is baseball. I state this because baseball is a sport played during warm weather and it also is the sport I'm playing right now. In baseball I play shortstop and play for a travel team called the Georgia Grays. Friday April13th I am traveling to Greensboro, North Carolina for a baseball tournament.

Baseball is a fun sport to play and watch. Many people say it is boring to watch because there is no action like football. Baseball might not have as much action as football, but baseball is a thinking man's sport. That means baseball is game of logic thinking. For example, you have to know when to hit a pop-fly to drive the run home and you also have to know when to bunt.

 

In conclusion, baseball is a very fun sport in my opinion. Baseball is a sport that keeps you active and fit and if you need a thinking game baseball is the sport.

How Do You Feel About The Free Agency Period?

I feel alright but not the best in the free agency period. Many people are moving to different teams. The 49ers are getting two good wide receivers Randy Moss and Mario Manningham that played for the Giants. Randy Moss was retired and then he changed his mind about coming back to the league. He is getting kind of old and he could get easily injured. Peyton Manning went to the Denver Broncos. Peyton had neck surgery and many fans thought he wasn't coming back; neither did I. He got very emotional

He is getting kind of old and he could get easily injured.

Peyton Manning went to the Denver Broncos. Peyton had neck surgery and many fans thought he wasn't coming back; neither did I. He got very emotional when the Colts wanted to trade because he had been their quarterback for 13 years and was their first overall pick.

The Broncos traded Tim Tebow to the Jets. Tim Tebow said on ESPN that he was proud to be a Jet and play for Rex Ryan because Rex Ryan actually knows the game of football and is a good coach.

In conclusion, I think fans of the NFL are surprised about the free agent trades. No one expected Peyton Manning nor Randy Moss to come back in the league. The main topic was Peyton Manning to the Broncos because nobody thought he would play again because of his neck surgery.
