The sun was so bad that even my sunglasses wouldn’t help that much. This game was a good game and we stayed close in score throughout the game. Although, we eventually won the game.
People who know me have often called me eccentric. Although one might think this description is not a compliment, to me, “eccentric” is a word that reflects perfectly on my passion for baseball. Through baseball, I have made many friends in all gender, ages, and backgrounds. My passion for baseball has also opened up doors to new learning opportunities. I worked as a three-weeks summer intern at Sports Marketing Laboratory Inc.
I had come up against something that I wasn’t good at, and it angered me. Everyday after practice for the next week or two was no different. I couldn’t figure out why I wasn’t getting better and what the point of all this suffering was. One night after an especially hard workout I had a talk with my dad, who was an exceptional baseball player in his day. I asked him what I need to do to get better.
I was taken to the emergency room and I didn't leave until 5 o'clock the next morning. My hopes of making varsity as a sophomore were crushed that day. My symptoms were fairly severe, I had trouble walking, and reading of any kind gave me massive headaches. I was very sad that all of my hard work was amounted to nothing because of one stupid injury. Recovery was tough.
Luckily, my hard work had paid off and…. I made freshman team! As excited as I was, I knew the real hard work was yet to come. It took a little bit of time to sink in. It wasn’t until the uniforms and the team gym bags were handed out that I really began to think, hey it’s time to put in work, I’m actually going to be playing in real games soon.
When I was five, I received my first set of golf clubs for Christmas and eventually took my first lessons ever since then I have strived to be just like the professionals. I love golf because it is something I play with my father, it has always been an activity that we share and can both play. My father and I have sustained a tradition of going golfing every Christmas and New Year 's Eve, and we have done this since I was eight. We also simply attempt to play a round at least every other week. Another reason that I have aspired to become a professional golfer is because of their camaraderie.
My grandpa taught me about the sport and I just immediately got hooked onto it. Ever since I learned about the sport I would always go to the driving range to practice and to try to get good at it. My parents didn’t think it was a good idea at first because I was only a year old. I was also taught on how to act on the course and to control myself if I hit a bad shot. Golf fits my personality because it was the only sport I really was interested in and that I wanted to be part of any sport and that’s how I learned about
The pro said, “For fourth place the Zach and Jacob. For third place Matt and Josh, for 2nd place with a tie Noah Nash, and Bobby and Robert, and Finally for first the winner is Luke and Tyler.” My cousin and I were one stroke from getting first. We were not really happy about it, but we had a great time. One thing I feel like I learned is that you gotta have more preparation for a golf tournament, because it takes a lot of
I get so competitive in volleyball and softball, but I enjoy the thrill. Sports are very important to me, but I hate that losing comes with the game. All of my sports have very talented and athletic players that love to win. Last year’s volleyball team made it to the finals in WPIAL but lost to Freeport. Even though I didn’t play varsity, I still super supportive and excited we made it that far.
This is the biggest moment of my life. About 25-30 minutes were left of play. We believed that we could win, and that belief led us to winning the game. We outplayed them in the second half, and won thanks to goals from Abandi, Jasem, Fahad, and I. The most important player in our win, though, was Aseel, as he was bossing the midfield.
The Smoove twins Chris and Jrue have played outstanding Trevon and Andre were playing good as well but Robert and Tyron weren 't playing that good so we needed one more good guy to make this team great... And I was that guy. We won every game but one without me, the one game we lost was to the Honeybadgers. The team we were playing in the championship. The Honeybadgers have never lost, they won every single game and every single championship since our league started in 1972. (You do the math because I 'm
The season continued and it consisted of all half time blowout games. The team, the school, and the community were all very excited. We wanted to win a state championship. Everyone knew winning a state championship was going to be very difficult however because Stanberry was another undefeated team in another conference and on the other side of the playoff bracket. Stanberry was winning many blowout games like we were but everyone was saying how much harder the teams they were playing were.
