Football is a contact sport and those who are involved are exposing themselves to the consequences that come with that sport.

All of the personal experiences and wisdom are given to Ted in order to justify how lucky he is to even be playing a collegiate sport and that he should be grateful for the skills that the game is teaching
That was easy, getting through my mom, but the only problem was telling my dad. He was furious when I had told him football was my goal to achieve. Then when I had calmed him down, he finally said “Maybe.” So that following fall, I played. I showed the coaches and all the boys that girls can play football as good as men. At practice, we got our jersey numbers and position.
As a result to Football makes me who Iam I don 't know what i could had done without football If it wasn 't for football I wouldn 't be in college right now before I played Football my grades were horrible. It 's not like I needed help or anything, it just that i needed a motivation and football bring all that motivation . Whenever I don 't feel like going to school I would look up the Adrian Peterson poster i have in my room because I know for sure Adrian peterson had work hard to get where he is right now and that was including going to school.

Football coaches also take on father role models for some of the players. Being tough helps with that because the players must respect the coaches. Lewis Lustik had trouble with school, which is shown multiple times in the movie. Coach Boone tell Lewis that he can make it to college and that he wants to see his grades, so he can guide him to success off the football field. That is one of the few times coach Boone reveals a soft side towards the players.

Although my father’s addiction might not have made the best childhood, he did show me the kind of person I did not want to be.
My high school was not the best, and the environments that I was around where not the best. Mistakes I have made have built me as a person in many ways.This is a time in my life I will never forget, but its a good thing that I knew soon it would turn into an amazing thing. My Jr year of high school i was very amazed that they would classify me as that but I went along with it.

The NFL should research more on CTE and discover ways to prevent it. One way could be providing safety gear that could protect the players from concussions, which is a major cause of CTE. The NFL should also accept that there is a connection between playing football and getting CTE. Our brains are not genetically engineered to sustain an impact on our cranium, so players who suffer a concussion in a game should not be let back into the game until proper treatment is provided. Until this happens we cannot trust the NFL on anything they

What is extremely enthusiastic is the fact that Roethlisberger who is entering his thirteenth season as the Pittsburgh’s starting quarter –back told the USA TODAY after his team’s opening practice of training in the camp last week that he wondered what it would be like if everybody was there and everyone was in the field.

Research Project: NFL Concussions The project that I decided to research was concussions in sports, focusing on the National Football League. Though the NFL is famously known for being hammered with controversy surrounding concussions, they are trying to improve the health and safety measures to prevent them from happening, and to protect players. These measures are usually tagged with a term called “Concussion protocol”. This term has been thrown around for years by announcers, coaches, players, and probably the most by NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell. The question I had was, was the concussion protocol actually being effective and reducing the amount of concussions in the NFL?
But one game changed that; he went from hardly playing to in on every offensive snap. Safety is played on defensive but his coach tried him out on running back and he scored. While playing in high school Tony received the name Touchdown Tony.
