Storytelling Sunday (Picture): The Armband

There are many things Henry is on the soccer field:  fast; hard working; coachable. Definitely talented. But there's one thing he has never been - a leader. It just has not been in his nature to stand up and fill that role.  
Until this year. 
Congratulations son.
