I played line, but I occasionally got to run the ball and I never will forget the first time I scored. I participated in flag football, and we were playing at the old middle school and I took the handoff outside and as I was running down field, I turned around and almost fell, but I still scored. After the year had ended, year two came around and I didn’t really want to play, but
I did well at corner-back too where I tipped a pass and I got two tackles. So I was ready to help the RB’s score a touchdown, and I was in the huddle When all of a sudden, my QB told me that I was going to get the ball on a counter play. I got really nervous when he told me this, But when I lined up for the play I remember what Bugs told me, and I got really confident. When he gave me the ball, I ran as fast as I could and juked out one kid, then trucked over another kid, and I was running away from at least 5 players ahead of me. And I thought to myself “oh my god” because at the time, I was like 4 foot 7, and they were like 5 foot 2.
The South got the victory over the North Saturday in the 42nd annual Lions All-Star football game at Tracy High School's Wayne Schneider Stadium. But, perhaps an asterisk should be put next to its 51-38 win. To prevent a blowout, when a team has more than a nine point lead, the losing team will receive the ball after every touchdown, regardless of who scores. That rule gave the South extra possessions, which helped it fight back from a 38-21 halftime deficit. “That rule just killed all of our momentum,” said a frustrated Zerek Saldivar following the game.
The first time on a football field and i was very hyped about it cause i got to play and the coach put me as starter because i was the biggest one on the field. The very first play we got sacked but are left lineman didn't stop the ball they got pushed over and we got sacked. The ball was on the 25 yard line and we were trying to get to the fifteen yard line to get the first down and we were short 10 yards but we could still get cause if we work hard you play hard. Then we said hike the ball was handed of to the running we tried to stop them but they still got the touchdown. They tried to make us go to right side on a counter play but we read there play and we stopped them from getting the first.
After half time Big Mo (a big drum) was getting smacked and the black and gold ran out. The Tigers started out with the ball and went down the field and scored with a 4 yard Tony Temple run with just over 13 mins left in the 3rd quarter. Arkansas got the ball after that quick score and went down the field and threw an interception to WIlliam Moore for a 26 yard INT, I remember going crazy after that play with my cousin Curtis. The Razorbacks got the ball back and scored with a Darren McFadden 3 yard touchdown run and the 3rd quarter ended. After every third quarter Marching Mizzou plays the Missouri Waltz, it's a rich long tradition at Mizzou that everyone
That's very close to them getting a touchdown to close out the game 12 or 14 to nothing and we wouldn't be able to win but at that moment they pitched the ball to the outside back and he ran to the left and then I hit him… Then the ball went flying out and Keegan Shelke picked it up and ran it back for a touchdown and then the game was finally 6-6. We would now have a chance to take the lead and win this very important game. We then went for 2 point conversion to win the game and we gave the ball to Mitch Smarzinski our full back who then got stuffed at the line and our lineman helped push him in… But then we saw bright yellow flag fly and the referee said we had assisted the runner into the endzone and that's illegal apparently so then the game was over and the time ran out. The finally was KImberly 6 and the Neenah Rockets
Of course this feeling has changed with time. In my last few years of Highschool football there was very few practice that I left feeling as happy as I did when I was younger. As life went on and I made it to middle school I found that football was not just fun because you were presented with the opportunity to knock the snot out of somebody, it was fun because everyday I had the chance to hangout with my closest friends. Now i'm not saying I loved everyone on the football team but I did get along with the majority of them. We made memories that will be with me for the rest of my life.
It was easy, we had won 4-1. It was a sweep, I scored a goal, and then tyler scored 3. Our next opponent was Watertown. Everytime we play them it is like a WWE fighting match. I don’t even think people care for the ball, they want to hit someone as hard as they can.
My primary position on the junior varsity team was quarterback. Although we had many outstanding athletes, our first season was far from successful; however, my eighth and ninth grade years, we went undefeated in football. In middle school, I continued my baseball career with the school; yet, my desire to be on the diamond shifted more towards football. Sports brought a glorious feeling into my life in middle school; on the other hand, not everything turned out the way I had expected, for a tragic event changed my life forever. Something horrendous occurred to my close friend, Payton Mitchell.
The student use to call me speedy every time we have recess outside or gym class everyone wanted me on their team because I was fast and quick. When we play football, I would just get the ball and run straight without being touch, or tackle by anyone that 's when I notice I can run track and compete with the older kids. My first time running track I was a bit nervous because I was racing against older kids. It was the 200-meter dash was my face race, I would close my eyes and wait for the gunshot to go. When I heard it that 's when I was running as fast as I can then notice I had the lead the whole way, that 's when I become a track star.
