One of the players took the game so hard that he did not want to come together with the team. Coach Newton said to everyone,” Keep your heads up every one of us are winners in his book.” As I play football today the quote my coach gave me to keep in my head helps me with a lot. When I turned 17 I got the quote tattooed on my chest so if I am doing something and I try to give up it makes me grind harder. I never give up on something I love or like to do. I want to make history in my school and in collage and etc.
Within class, we have been discussing the topic of allowing your son to play the physical sport football. Would you allow your son to play football with having the insight of all the risks they would be taking? I would not allow my son to play football because of how physical it is. High school football has the highest rate of concussions at 47.1% over all the other sports played by high schoolers. Within the article, “Would you let your son play football” on ESPN.com states, “The issue of player safety and concussions would have a very real, very fresh face.” This is significant because once a football player dies they are examined, which the majority of football players have serious injuries in their brains.
I met Coach Minnich the first day of football practice freshman year. He was a cool coach would play around with you and try to find out things about you. First, he was mad at me because I was playing Quarterback and couldn’t play defense. He knew that I wanted to play defense, but Coach am wouldn’t let me. So one day I talked to Coach Minnich, and he said, “You are a good athlete, but can’t show it if you play quarterback.” I said, “ I know that, and I want to be on the field”.
After receiving death threats from parents of other players, he and his brother dropped from the team in order to get rid of the problem altogether, never again playing sports. With grades and a resume like his, getting into prestigious colleges and medical schools was not really much to worry about. On top of that, he didn’t seem to have a great interest in sports anyways, therefore allowing to him to focus on his studies, something that was very important to him. Unlike Dr. 2 Carson, there are some middle school, high school and even college athletes who have an immense amount of interest in both academics and sports- also known as student athletes. While having an outstanding academic transcript can go a long way, it is proven that kind of transcript as well as an athletic resume can go even farther.
To be honest, it can suck and I felt like quitting after my sophomore year, but I reminded myself how much it meant to me. I thought about how much my life revolved around football, and how much my parents wanted to watch me play. I can tell you now, that I feel completely stupid for even thinking about quitting. RIght now I would not trade High School football for anything in the world. There is just something about being with my team, which has become more like a family to me.We

Win-Win “It’s never been about football, but about becoming the best and fullest person I could be.” NFL star, Michael Oher, says, “And to think I went from the kid with a GPA in the basement to going to college on a football scholarship.” When Michael Oher’s athletic abilities gave him an opportunity, he realized he would have to apply himself both in the classroom and on the field; likewise, many dedicated college student athletes view sports as a key to access higher education. Collegiate level sports are a selling point for students seeking a college degree. Although some might argue college sports as a negative, these sports should be both supported and appreciated due to the wealth and student population they provide for the school.
