Our coach is a strong believer that in order to be successful as a team, it is important to support each other like a family. This familial atmosphere and support that I received from my fellow teammates was the reason I went to compete at OFSAA my first year of wrestling. Not only did I earn a spot at OFSAA that year, I also competed at the Cadet/Juvenile Provincial Championships. Although, I did not place at this tournament, it was an excellent learning experience that I will never forget. In grade 10, I earned the Marauder award for wrestling, which was a true honour, simply because most of the time the Marauder award and the MVP award are usually given to a grade 12 on the team.

As season came to an end, student-athletes were being recognized for their hard work and talents. As awards being distributed to my teammates and the night was coming to an end, for the next award, my coach was describing one of his players, in which, based on his words, had worked harder and improved himself more than everyone else. Then he shouted, “I’m honored to give this award to Ali Najafi.” I won most prestigious award of the night, Most Valuable Player of the year for the Junior Varsity team. The award itself meant nothing for me, but I was just glad my coaches saw all of my sacrifices and hard works. Looking back to two choices that I had earlier, I felt strong and courageous that I didn’t give up and I was being able to succeed in both sports and
Since Jackie had such a good reputation for being a good guy, his injustice was seen and he was not charged for standing up for his beliefs. Robinson’s determination on and off the field also sparked the creation of his foundation which impacts thousands of young lives every year. Jackie did not waste his opportunity in the major leagues and that example has been passed onto the kids in his foundation who have a 98% graduation rate. By not fighting back with anyone that heckled him, including the man he was supposed to give his bus seat up for, Jackie showed his truly great determination to be

He almost died last spring and I realized how much he continues to influence people, especially me. He taught me to have dreams and set goals. “If people don’t laugh at your dreams, they aren’t big enough, son.” But he also emphasized planning! “No one plans to fail, but if you fail to plan you will fail.” Since I was about 13 I had a desire to become a teacher and coach, but didn’t develop a plan until high school. I remember some of my friends laughing at me when I said
Despite how “The Voice” comes across to some of the faculty, Owen is simply trying to make a difference at the school and give the students a voice: “The Voice was our voice; he championed our causes; he made us proud of ourselves in the atmosphere that belittled and intimidated us,” (290). I believe he cares deeply about his friends and is loyal to them. Even though Owen is smart enough to skip a grade, he volunteers to repeat a grade in order to stay with John: “WHAT ARE FRIENDS FOR? I’LL NEVER LEAVE YOU,” (267). Owen is extremely demanding.
He has gotten me to become a very influential respectful youngman, and got me to do things I don't think I could ever really do in life. And when things get harder or easier for me in life the things that he taught me I will always remember and never forget them this gave me a huge understanding of the people that just wanna become better, and those who dont wanna get better and achieve nothing. This goes from my intro from In These Girls, Hope is a Muscle. This shows how the captain of the team was pushing the team, and my personal mentor would be my coach on the way he pushed my team to finally win a state championship from the last state title being over 30 years ago

What do you think was your biggest contribution as a team member while you played at Batavia High School? While participating in athletics at Batavia I believe my greatest contributions to the team were my work ethic and positivity. I may not have always been been the best athlete, but my teammates could always count on me to work as hard as I possibly could. No matter how hard a practice or game was, I always tried to inspire and motivate my teammates by working hard myself and encouraging them to keep pushing themselves. In what way do you think participation in sports at BHS has benefitted you?
The captains always made sure that the team was following routine and doing the correct warm-up and stretching before coach Dornan was there. As a whole, the coach believes that “the boys should be recognized” for what they have achieved and how they were. According to Dornan, there was nothing but respect for him, the school and for each other coming from the highlander boys. AS a reward for the players, the coach is trying to start a draw for a free drivers ed course in order to raise money for team clothing. He anticipates that ticket prices with be 1 for $5 or 3 for
Joe and his teammates, who he became very close and good friends with, had to work together precisely in pursuit of winning the gold medal. His teammates also struggled with life in the past, outside of the Olympics. Some of his teammates included working class men who were in poverty, just as Joe. I believe Joe and the others who were on his team won because of the dedication they put forth and how they all related to each other in similar ways. The fearful beginnings they all had motivated them to do their very best in the end.
Franklin 's enthusiastic attitude is a great attribute she has that sets her apart from and makes her better than other athletes. Coaches are willing to continue training Franklin, and help her because of her positive approach through everything she does. For example, her coach "who began coaching Franklin with the Colorado Stars when she was 7" (John Meyer, Denver post article) has stuck with her for over a decade. He has done this because coaches love athletes who listen to them! He realizes that he will see results from the time and commitment he has put in with Missy.
