Kobe and I went along to watch them play in the grand final, and I have to say I was so nervous for them! It was like Aaron was still there coaching them. I kept imagining how anxious he would've been if he were there with them.
It was an awful day and was pouring down for a lot of the game.
now see why he loved it so much and loved the kids so much.
One of the boys ran over to me at the end and put his arm around my shoulders and said they did it for Kingy, and I said that he would've been pumped and so proud of them. Another boy came and gave Kobe his hat to keep and another one asked me if I'd like to stay for the presentation of the cup.
It was nice to see them all get their medals. Their coach this year - Mr Dean, made a speech about how Aaron was supposed to have been coaching them and how they played in remembrance of him. I felt very teary, but so proud and happy that they are still remembering him.
Today there was a photo and article in The Examiner about them winning, and it was so nice to see them holding Aaron's photo. Well done boys! I know without a doubt Kingy would've been so proud of you all.
