Can we make this sport safe without ruining the thrill? Solving this problem involves not only educating the public, but also eliminating head-first tackles and providing better equipment. Undoubtedly, football is a difficult, treacherous sport but currently no measures are being taken to improve players’ safety. Small things could make a big difference in the NFL. People are getting hurt before our very eyes, and we don’t do a thing about it, we should be appalled our lack of action and let it motivate us to make improvements and needed
At the end of practice, I would always go home with a bright red face and sweat pouring down my body, creating a wet ring on my shirt collar. However, we all wanted to make ourselves satisfied as well as our coach to make the most out of our practices and so we wouldn’t get more difficult workouts the next time because of lack of participation. The first time that I won a race in a track meet made me feel like I accomplished something. I really liked that feeling of being successful on my own despite the criticism I had received about being successful. I felt like I could conquer anything and would never listen to what others would tell me.
The third base coach was furious he was in the umpire’s face saying that he just wanted the game to end so he call the kid out. The play itself wasn’t the really cool part, it was that our team had pulled together and beat the team that had knocked us out of the tournament before in extra innings on a lucky hit. None of us knew it yet, but this was going to be a great year. We were almost like
We stayed aggressive the whole game bumping cutters making sure they got no easy buckets, and we ended up winning 52-15. We ended up playing in the championship game on Sunday. We played the Rising Stars. They were all just as talented as us so it all came down to whoever plays the hardest. We had a different starting lineup this game.
First, Coach Boone handled racism because he knew that it would hold them back. Coach Boone set it straight at the first team meeting when he said the team will get along like they are brothers, or else they will not be a part of this team. This shows that he knows that racism will hold them back because he wanted everyone to know how it would be before it even started. In other words, he addressed the issue before the issue even started. Coach Boone saw his team being held back by racism at training camp, so he had everyone learn what the interests of the other players were, and have them
Gavin was back the next day at practice and my spirit was dead. I’m thinking I’m not gonna ever get playing time so why bother caring so much and putting in all this energy when I could be helping the sophomore team that I actually play on. So over the course of the next week I didn’t really care as much about knowing everything for varsity and I still worked hard at practice but I could’ve given more. During, this ‘outburst’ the varsity games were closer than what they should be and the starters weren’t scoring as well or playing as
I was exhausted and discouraged, but I wouldn’t let that stop me from succeeding. My team helped keep this mantra alive throughout the season. Each day, after relentless corrections were screamed at us for several hours from the end zone, we would tell each other the things we did well and laugh about our mistakes. By the first competition, I was catching each toss in our show, but it was the failures leading up to that perfect moment that transformed me during that season. What I thought would be a summer of failures taught me the most valuable lesson of all- the only flags you truly drop are those that you do not even try to
But coaching at the college level comes with a lot more!! A coach’s biggest job is to teach kids to play team sports. As a Head coach you never ever want to lose the trust and faith of your players. If the players don’t believe you will lead them to victory then they won’t want to play for you. Another huge responsibility as a head coach is teaching your players to do
I knew it was now or never. Trusting that with God all things I possible I took the leap of faith closing my eyes and hoping for the best. I felt my feet smack the ground, as I landed the front flip. I rose up and stood straight with my fellow student raising my arm as if I had won a great battle, the crowd went insane roaring as I ripped out my outer shirt and threw it to the crowd. It was better than I had envisioned it.
Additionally, the poem, “If”, writes, “If you can make one heap of all you winnings/ And risk it on one turn of pitch-and-toss,/ And lose, and start again at your beginnings/ And never breathe a word about your loss” (Kipling). When Atticus was asked to defend Tom, he knew that it was a risk, but he still defended him, even though he knew people would not support him. When Tom was guilty, he had lost a lot, but he never complained that it was not a fair trial. Therefore, Atticus demonstrated courage in To Kill A
I leaped as high as I could and unfortunately missed the tip the game was already heading south but the game had just started so we had no worries. The first quarter had several lead changes we both had bad shooting quarters shooting below the 30% but that wasn’t what mattered we were all worried about looking good as a team and winning the game not individual stats. About ¾ of the way through the first quarter our coach called a timeout and called us to the sideline and said “Guys you are a great group of kids and have made my coaching experience beyond expectable and you are a bright group of kids so after this season I’ll be retiring and making sure I go out with bang so win this game for me!” and that’s when the game took a drastic change, we began to play with our heart not just our
