Basketball taught me to keep going and never allow the tough moments to define me. Second, basketball has taught me what it means to work hard, be a team player, push through, and to never give up. There were days that I did not want to practice or I felt like I had too much on my plate, but I knew that I had a commitment to my team which meant I was always there for them. These are important life lessons to learn not only as a player, but as a student. Lessons from basketball have positively impacted all areas of my life.
Pat Conroy could have quit. He had every reason to give up the game of basketball and never look back, but he did not. He acted on the contrary. He pushed himself to his limits everyday at practice and he gave every last ounce of effort he had and left everything on the court. He had so much love for the game of basketball and he did not let his dad's insults faze him.
Coach did the complete opposite of what had told me. Coach had players in the game that was messing up big time. Coach duck still wouldn’t take the players out the game for nothing. He had players in that game that was literally just giving the game away for us and he had back up players that could really get in and help the team out in a positive way. Anyways we lost our game not just lost but we [Type text] got whipped.
I love basketball, so working for the basketball team will be a great fit for me and a life time goal. Overall school comes first than basketball, I want to be a well-rounded Physical Therapist Assistant, focus other things than physical therapist. I talked to other physical therapists and they told me I should expand my knowledge
As a freshman, and a coach 's son, I came onto the football team and took a starting spot from a junior, who had started in that spot all of last season. There were quite a few players that weren 't happy with the decision, but I felt as if I 'd earned the spot. I knew that the only way i would gain their approval was to stand out. All season I listened to, "He only starts because he is the coaches son" but I tried to block it all out. The junior, who 's spot I took, took all his anger out on me in practice, taking every cheap shot possible while people weren 't paying attention.
We took a five-minute water break to try and regather our thoughts and to try and come back from this awful game against a group of social rejects. My hand had stopped bleeding by now and I was able to sign autographs for all the fans that had come out to see me play, but my hand was not well enough for me to start playing just yet. It was now around 5:30 so we continued the game so that it did not end too late. My teams goalie got the ball and passed it to David on the breakout pass, but David took only one step and Jason started charging towards him. The goalie speared David in the midsection with his stick and the other teams defenseman Scott got the ball.
Everyday people have the opportunity to determine and construct their own decisions and fulfill personal desires. People don 't control their fate, however their destiny lies within their own hands. Believing in fate means supernatural power beyond your control predetermines your life. Ambition and effort towards your goal will determine the outcome of your future. Through experience I 've conquered and obtained my long term goal of playing collegiate level basketball.
We were first for our JV conference and losing was not an option at this point. I was made to sit out to save my chances of an accidental foul. The agony of watching the scoreboard favor the other team was unbearable. As I watched the clock tick down to its last minutes, I was told to sub in. The next three words that escaped my coach’s mouth will forever be stitched in me.
I then had to force myself to rest as much as possible to try and get healthy for my first season of high school basketball. During the time of rest, I really got to learn how important friends and family can really make your life better. Both friends and family helped me strive to get better through physical therapy and getting the possible rest that I need to be able to make a full recovery from the injury. Mainly, the hardest part was me making myself not be able to play when knowing the opportunity to play with my teams was still there even though I was hurt. A main part of my life after the injury was keeping in touch with my families at all time, because they are one of the most important things in your
It’s this immersion into various sporting activities that has led me to the understanding that engaging in athletics has a very positive impact in our lives. Additionally, sports are extremely important in building one’s character through hard work, learning to work with others on a team and by learning how to cope with the joy of winning and the inevitability of losing. One thing to know about any sport is that there is no free ride. You earn recognition, all your playing time, and a starting position through hard work. I grew up playing all kinds of different
It is only due to their inefficiencies that we must resort to creating this drastic change. I mean, they ALWAYS end up making someone angry. You’d think with all their training that they would be able to do their jobs better than everyone else in the stands, but nope. You’d be wrong. With this change, the people will be in charge of regulating the game so no one will be able to complain!
We are still tied after a full game, and overtime. Now I have to sit and watch like the rest of the crowed. The first six PK were scored the intensity rising with each one . Now if this player scores the other team can win it all. The crowd goes silent the player has a look of determination on his face he runs up to the ball and he hits it.
