Whenever I try to score the goal it ends up in the hands of the goalkeeper because I don’t kick it with a lot of power so if I want to be able to score goals for my team and help them win I should increase the amount of power that I use when I kick the ball to the goal. Balance Balance is being able to preserve your centre of mass over a support base. Balance is an important component in football and players who improve their balance can achieve excellence in football and without it somebody who wants to be a footballer would be at a disadvantage.

Linemen, on a football team, are great examples of this because the quarterback, running backs, and wide receivers get all the credit for great plays and touchdowns, while linemen have to block the three-hundred-pound man in front of them every time, or the play will get blown up. Team players don’t do things for themselves, they do it for the benefit of the team. In a team player’s mind, the betterment of the team must come first. No matter who scores a touchdown, goal, basket, or run, a team player has to let go of all individualism and do the right thing for the whole team. In soccer, if a teammate gets open down field and you have an opponent in front of you, a team player would pass it to their open teammate, while an individualist would attempt and juke out the opponent or try and show off and possibly lose the ball.

Just like Martin Luther King Jr. says: “a law that is out of harmony with the moral law is an unjust law.” (506). Marcus Dupree was a talented young running back and for the coaches to treat him inadequately just like any other of his teammates, because they were scared he might become egotistical because of his gift. While Martin Luther King Jr. says: “One who breaks an unjust law must do so openly, lovingly, and with a willingness to accept the penalty.” (507). In the sense of this connection between the documentary and the piece that Martin Luther King Jr. wrote, Barry Switzer had accepted the penalty of losing Marcus Dupree after a year. Switzer states that he regrets treating Marcus poorly because he could have been one of the best football players there has ever been.
Topic: Why schools should spend more money on equipment to protect athletes from concussions and other injuries. In today’s society sports rule the lives of kids of all ages. Football, being one of the most popular, is on the decline because of the recent studies of NFL players having CTE (Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy) causing early death and brain/memory problems. WIth these studies parents are starting to pull their children from playing football at a young age to try and reduce the risk of head injuries in general.

Contingency Leadership The main idea of the contingency approach in leadership is that leadership effectiveness depends on the interaction of two factors: the leader’s task and the relationship he/she enjoys with his subordinates rather than a pre-existing model one can use to organize his/her organization. Hence, it is interesting to first explore Ferguson’s approach using Fiedler’s Contingency Leadership Model. Judging by the above model, Ferguson’s leadership situation fell under situation 3.

To add on, I was also known for being an astute kicker on the team; I was skillful enough with my kicks. As my coach says, I am “right on the money”. I soon realized that the team was torn by dissension because I was there. I felt irresolute and hesitant about my decision of joining the football team. I didn’t want to be the one that desecrated and dishonored the team chemistry of the football team.
