It was six o 'clock at the Friendswood junior high mustang field I was playing strong safety and I had to cover the extra receiver they brought out by the snap I was already beating my man and the next thing I know the ball was sailing my way straight to me. I am 13 years old and I am on the Friendswood junior high C-football team I am a second string slot receiver and starting strong safety and I 'm also a second string strong side linebacker it was our last game of the season,so we really wanted to go out on the win or a record for the season was one way in five losses and one tie,we hadn 't had a great season so we especially wanted to go out on a win. We got the ball first on kick off and we made a touchdown on the first few drives.On
In my opinion, I think that competitive sports in school have a lifetime of benefits. In this article Kevin Kniffin states that, “Research shows that people who play high school sports get better jobs, with better pay.” In my essay I will be explaining how people who play sports get better jobs and better pay, and how hiring managers expect more out of a former high school student who played sports. In my opposing side I will be explaining how in the worlds smartest countries, school is about learning. However, this minor argument still leads me to the side of Kevin Kniffin.
The 1950s were a wonderful time to be a kid in San Francisco. I was raised by my parents during an age of affluence, also known as the “baby boomer” generation. From dawn to dusk, I enjoyed the good life to the hilt in a new neighborhood called the Sunset District. The best part where we lived was Kezar Stadium, the home of the 49ers, located just about two miles away. And when the 49ers played at home on Sundays, the noise from the crowd was like music to a budding 49ers fan.
West High School’s softball team has opened a new chapter in my life. If I could go back to my freshman year I would have played for West. All the rumors people have heard about Coach Saladino are not true, he is honestly such an inspiring person. Playing softball for West has given me friendships I will never forget, the ability to play with the most robust players, and the new skills I have learned from such an amazing coach. Playing for West High School’s softball team was one of the best decision I have ever made.
It’s Friday night and the St. Rita football team is playing Mount Carmel in our homecoming game. Everyone is cheering and having a great time. The St. Rita football team is winning and everyone is exited. As I look around and see how much attention the football team is getting, and how when people think of St. Rita they think of our sports teams. How we have a great sports program. I have seen our football team get brand new, state of the art turf twice in the four years that I attended St. Rita. I have seen the basketball locker room, which, if you put it side by side with an NBA locker room you would probably not know the difference. Every time you go to the lunch room you would see all the trophies that the sports teams have won.
Playing baseball is something that would show up on a college application but its importance in my life can’t be overstated. Baseball has taught me many life lessons as well as opened doors that wouldn’t exist without it. The people that I have met, the coaches who have taught me the game, have all had a profound impact on the player and the person that I am today. Baseball has changed my life completely. It has created a strong work ethic because if you aren’t concerned with getting better then someone will pass you by.
As an athlete myself the athletics are a major part of why I would like to go to Archbishop Mitty High School. The wide range of sports means that if I grow tired of one sport I can move to another. With a lot of sports that do not need much experience since they are non-cut, I feel that I have many opportunities to shine in sports that I would otherwise never have attempted. Knowing that Archbishop Mitty High School has won so many awards in the athletic department, tells me that they are doing something right. At the open house, I had the chance to speck with athletes and coaches and that gave me a feeling that the athletics are another part of Mitty 's wonderful community.
The year passed and our senior pitcher graduated bumping me into the starting position. This is where we knew we would start a legacy. Yet again we were the powerhouse of the western slope. Our success was spreading quickly and more and more players and coaches wanted to join! My junior year was our strongest
Our Scott City high school baseball team hasn 't been good my whole high school career. We have lost more games in the last four years than any team I know of. My freshman year we only won one baseball game, sophomore year only won one game, junior year we won three games and this year we have won 3 games out of five that 's better than I thought we would do.
Middle school students are competing in competitive sports which both have a positive and negative side. Some players say that sports can help people lose weight and keep active. But on the other half states that it can be dangerous and can cause future physical damage. Generally competitive sports can be fun but it can come with consequences of regret of young children 's lives. My reasons of competitive sports being bad are that it can take up the participants time and it can pressure or overwhelm them in a sense of them being stressed. Second reason is that the injuries can be vital and can cause future damages to your physical state and maybe mental state if overwhelmed too much for working on the sport. My third and final reason of competitive
The VHSL(The Virginia High School League) is highly disliked by many school districts and people. In this article,people are not on board with the one man policy, one vote which helps schools with having a say in school changes. They believe that the system is not structured to help the schools make decision that could affect them as well. The schools want to pass a law that gives them more of a voice when it comes to the school rules and regulations. If the bill does get passed, it would change the voting structure for all schools in the future.
I can assure you that if it were not for basketball, I currently would not be at Marist as a sophomore. It helped me gain the endless friends that I have, and the long friendships that I continue to make. Also, since freshman year, it has allowed me to travel all across New Jersey and New York City. This year with Coach Brooks has by far been the most excruciating year. However, he has been an individual that I look up to.
This ultimately paid off when we were heading deep into the playoffs. My team suddenly faced the problem of some older players going out due to cramps; however, the 13 year old players were able to step up and fill in those positions. Since I gave them an insight to how to play the game intelligently, they fit right in. After winning the tournament I realized how I was a leader both on and off the field. The 13 year olds came up to me and thanked me for helping them out and making them feel better after they were down.
