I considered the tournament as a precious opportunity for me to prove my efforts. Nevertheless, in order to qualify to participate in this tournament, players had to be permanent residents in ShenZhen. My permanent residency was still in the previous province from where my mother came. The coach allowed me to practice with the team because he knew I really wanted to play basketball, and I practiced with all
He had Fresno State try to sign him, San Diego State, SMU, and Wyoming those are just a couple of colleges that talked to him. Fresno State was probably the best choice he could’ve made for his career because they helped him do what he wanted to achieve which is make the NBA. The college he went to was the best choice for him. No one thought he could make the NBA except his mom and two sisters which were his inspiration. Paul George one of the best players in the NBA today will get back to good health and he will play to full ability again one day.
We were winning so big, and I thought it was a great game. When I looked around the locker room and saw everyone’s faces, I felt selfish. I had only been thinking about myself and this game being my last. I had not thought about my other teammates who also were playing their last high school basketball game. My coach told me to pass the ball to my teammates, even though I was scoring a ton of points.
As a student in highschool, I contribute to numerous teams. I participate in cheerleading for varsity football and basketball. For cheerleading we all work together and create cheers and dances that we perform at games. We also are assigned to compose cheers by ourselves to teach the whole squad. I have been a cheerleader for three years now.
Some are from the best of the best players; from the elite players to the gifted players. According to http://www.ncaa.org, 3.4% of the high school basketball athletes are selected and move on to play in college. Clearly, the athletes spend most of their time-playing and practicing to make it to an NCAA basketball team. They learn how to perfect their skills and talents. On the other hand, how many high school basketball athletes do you know that actually make it to an NCAA basketball team?
Cheerleading allows me to participate in activities that contribute to worthwhile programs within my community as well. The team participates in the Smiles program that allows downs syndrome kids to cheer with my school team on game nights. I was also able to organize a group to participate in the Susan G Komen Walk for the Cure which carried significant importance to me since my grandmother passed away from breast cancer. These have been outstanding experiences that I might not have been involved with if I was not participating in cheer. When I started cheerleading, I thought it was all about winning the trophy
I learned to hold the vision and trust the process by facing many failures on the way of pursuing my goals as a basketball player. Intro: All began when I set myself the goal to defeat fear. I wanted to strengthen my courage at the moment of dealing with a challenge. Therefore, I joined my high school’s basketball team which led to the braking and molding of my character. I saw the size of the mountain before climbing.
I’m now a captain and three year cheerleader at Brighton, 2 year United Spirit Association All-American Athlete, and planning to cheer in college. Cheer has given me so much, my best friends, a great relationship with my school and a positive high school experience. I have no idea who or where I would be today if I decided to quit that first horrible practice. Never give up, most things don’t make sense in the moment, but it was will always pay off in the long
I added small improvements to my game like three point shooting, and additional conditioning so I would not get tired late in games. By the time basketball season rolled around, I was ready for tryouts. The coach had me tryout with both the freshman and the varsity team on the first day. This made the first day the hardest day since, for the most part, all we did was run sprints. Once I got past the first day, however, the next two days were fairly easy, I was able to run sprints without losing all my energy before getting to the scrimmages.
I should be captain because I 'm very hard working and I put in a lot of dedication , I make sure that when given a task I get it done, and I have so much school spirit in me that I would love to show my coaches and my team. Another reason why I should be captain is because I 'm ready for new challenges in cheer and I feel like captain would be a very good challenge for me to achieve. Being a captain might be hard but I 'm ready to take on the responsibility. I know I will be a really good captain, and I know I got what it takes to be captain, and i’m ready to show it to the whole
