In fact, he's concentrating so hard that (look at his hands) in one game he gave himself a blister... on his thumb! I think he was clenching his fists to make himself go faster!
He described the action here like this:
In this picture one of my teammates and I are tryin' to get a goal. I have the ball. Hayden, like we were trained, is going to run up to the goal so I can pass it to him. But I don't remember if we scored that time or not.
Yes, usually his eyes are open! It was sunny and very windy.
Staying warm on the sidelines.
