JORY | 49ERS Fan

I am currently on my third tour to the middle east and if there are two things that i've learned while ive been away its that i miss my family and NFL kickoff is at 930 pm here in Afghanistan. Having limited access to phones and television can be a drag sometimes. But every sunday night when i get online to watch a bar move up and down the field (gamecast) it almost makes me feel like im home. Sure i may be a few seconds behind waiting for the screen to update but nothing my fiance cant solve by laughing at me right when the 49ers get scored on or typing "whoohoo" when the seahawks score. They say theres no such thing as a perfect women and it just so happens the closest that god made to perfect he accidentally made a seahawks fan but i wont hold that against him.

Sunday nights for most Americans is a very special time. Dinner and family time. Football and one last night to relax before the start of the work week. But for me it means something more. It means that from 930 pm until i fall asleep from exhaustion a small part of me gets to travel half way across the globe to be with friends and family. Whether its skyping with a family member while they have the computer turned toward the tv or just messaging all my friends and family on social media sites i feel connected. You see in far apart love stories two people staring at the same moon imagining they were with each other. I guess you could say that football is my moon in this instance.

I love football. I have always loved football from the days before i can recall. Theres a lot to be said about something that can bring about every feeling in the spectrum within the span of 60 minutes. Love, hate, excitement, fear, doubt, joy, sorrow, anger (Kyle "fumble in the NFC Championship game" Williams!!!!). But the greatest thing about football is that this time every year we all start clean with the greatest feeling of all. Hope.

America has come together to share our love of football.

Here are your stories.



As we go into week 7 of the 2014 football, season to my coaching buddies remember that your words have power. If you call a kid a meathead or get in his face about something, remember to grab them after practice and explain to them the reason for that. If you need a kid to give you something that they are not giving you show them what you need, don't just assume that they understand because you see it clear as day. 
To me the game of football is...


my name is Michael ray. I entered my pee wee football team as a group but am not sure if you guys have the entry. I got an email that confirmed that u got it and said I would receive and email once it was approved, but that was a week ago. I wanted to enter my daughter in the contest as an individual but she just turned 10, and I wasn't sure if she could be entered, so I just entered the team. she is a quarterback and she is good. she already has 10 td passes this season. she was featured on HLN News Now with Mike Galanos. She loves football. she grew up cheering for her brother, but she really wanted to play. so this year I let her. Anyways, I tried resubmitting the video I used for...

Kaden is 18 months old a big Packer fan – along with his entire family from Wisconsin to Alaska!
While Kaden may still be little, it’s so neat that he is carrying on the tradition of his Dad, who, sadly passed away unexpectedly when Kaden was 2 months old.
Upon a touchdown, his Dad would run around the house and scream and slap everyone’s hands!  Kaden is showing the same excitement, by clapping excessively and throwing his hands up in the...






In the 49th year of the 20th century, our Dad and Mom, Raymond Schwartz
and Margaret McCabe married and went on to build their own dream team of
11 in the next 14 years. With seven boys and four girls, life at our
house was often a full-contact sport, but with Dad as the Coach and Mom
as General Manager, we were each fully committed to our family team.

Why I Love Football
By Bill Brown

I love football, not just for the successful play, great run, long pass or amazing catch. I love football because playing the game has taught me, like many others, how to be physically fit, mentally sharp, and an independent player within a working team. I learned to persevere in order to overcome adversity and achieve goals. It taught me how to succeed in life.

Let me share a short story to illustrate exactly...



My name is Tysen Tresness and I am helping my brother Graham submit his entry. Since Graham started watching football, he overall seems happier. I am now able to connect to him on a fundamentally simpler level than before. People tend to judge Graham based off of his disability, but he is so much more than that. He is a loving, caring individual who is always able to look on the bright side and I truly believe that his love of football has helped him to...


Our video was produced by one of our long time players, Nelson Nunez and his work was supported by Jessica Freels photographs.  I am the founder and organizer for Ultimate Football Walnut Creek.  UFWC is not a league and there is no cost to those who play.  Sportsmanship, teamwork and fair play are the most critical components of the game and a must for anyone who competes. 
I started organizing Ultimate Football games in Walnut Creek in 2009...
