The journey to varsity tryouts started when I was in 8th grade. There was a camp, right after school, where the best basketball players in my class who were going to Canton, were invited to try and make the summer league team. When I got to the gym before I could even put my shoes on, the head coach of the varsity team came up to me and said, “Noah I want you to come to the center court and practice with the varsity players today”. I couldn’t believe it. I quickly laced my shoes and ran onto the JV court and started practicing my shooting.

It was fall of my eighth-grade year, and I couldn't wait for basketball tryouts. I had been practicing all summer trying to prepare for my first basketball tryout. Then I heard the school bell ring meaning tryouts was in ten minutes. Nervously, I walked into the gym and saw a lot of kids trying out who have played their whole lives; then the coach blew the whistle and we all started warming up. At the end of tryouts, I thought I played great and I was excited to come back for the second day of tryouts the next day.

Usually in the summertime or whenever it stays warm and not too dark, I head over to the parks and watch some playground basketball games. I see all types of ballers, young, old, half court and full court players and oh yeah, I see basketball trainers working out players that are trying to improve their game for the upcoming season. This past summer it was kinda dead and it wasn't even that hot. I have heard the phrase " Ball is Life" but that isn't the case. Ball is definitely not life especially this past summer.
A thirteen-year-old girl’s worries typically consist of having to decide on what movie to see or keeping up with the latest trend, certainly not worrying about the health of her little brother. I had never imagined that my life could change while watching a simple game of youth football. Watching my brother’s football games on Saturday were pretty routine. In this particular game, Randy, playing as running back, took more hard hits than usual. Then, an opponent twice his size body slammed him into the ground.
It was recess time at Lake Harbor Middle School, and a group of boys were playing basketball. Two of the boys went for the same ball, and they ended up colliding, falling to the ground. On his way down, one of the boys hit his head on the concrete. This caused him to ask a continuous loop of questions for two hours after the initial impact. Now, almost two years later, the boy still does not remember the day he got his first concussion.
Before receiving this assignment I was living the dream. I was playing college basketball and living with two of my best friends and teammates. The night before we were first informed about the M.I.R.R.O.R. assignment I injured my knee for the third time, and my life completely turned upside down. I have been forced to move back in with my parents in Ankeny and have needed help with almost every daily task of my life.
According to Madisen Martinez “Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) tournaments require an extended period in which the student-athletes must miss school.” They skip class for the game to win tournament that they work so hard to get to. College Students Athletes is a full time job, they go to weight training to classes and then to the film room to the practice and finally to the game. (Martinez) The whole time they are getting ready for basketball and not much of school work. Some of the basketball things they do is mandatory and they have to go to it. If they have mandatory stuff in basketball then why do put in the class times so they skip classes, shouldn't they make where they do not skip classes.The college athletes use most of their time at basketball
According to Walsh 1 “in most cases traumatic injuries require surgery and physical therapy.” Surgery in football can be a big deal, but it’s not a big deal for those children that think about the benefits of football. Football has benefits that will stay in children’s heads for as long as they live. Surgery does not have any good benefits children can use for their lifetime, besides helping their body heal. There is a lot of benefits in football, so there’s really no reason why parents should hold back their children from playing
