I also have a deep love for football as many of the kids in this story did. The kids in this story talked about how when they were young they would go to the games on Friday nights, and dream about what the future for them would be like. They could not wait to play for the Permian school district, and be the town heroes. This aspect of the story for me was so relatable. I too would go to Scott City Beaver games when I was young, and dream about what my future would hold as a football player.
One particular moment was when I scored my first ever touchdown for a league team. Then from then on out I grew to love the sport of football. When I was around nine years old my dad enrolled me into the Duck Creek Pop Warner Football league where for the first time, I would play for an actual organized team. I was so excited to begin to play actual football from my years of playing around with my friends throwing the ball around or watching the games with my dad. Growing up with my brother we would play football together on an awkward one against one game where I wasn’t allowed to tackle him because he was younger than me and my parents didn’t want him to be hurt.
Ever since I was a toddler, I loved sports. Baseball, basketball, it did not matter; I just liked to run. When I was around 4 or 5, I was in the living room watching the Steelers play the Cardinals and saw Santonio Holmes grab a game winning touchdown to win the Superbowl. I was so excited that I jumped up in the air and I told my dad, “Daddy when I grow up I want to play football and I want to score a lot of touchdowns just like 10 does.” Fast forward to the Fall of 2014, and I am in my 3rd yr in football, and I was killing it. I was starting cornerback, andwe won a championship.
(acient) I have wanted to become a coach for a very long time specifically a football coach. My entire life has revolved around football watching it, talking about it, and even playing it. There a lot of colleges that offer this career choice for example 6. Arkansas State University or the University of Arkansas. I think that it’s a great career choice if you want to make a difference in some one’s life and if you want to have fame and be popular in your community.
This Is Me Before receiving this assignment I had never really thought about myself having a cultural identity much less what that identity would be. I fall into so many of the dominant subgroups I never needed to worry about being a minority. However, looking at all the factors that compose a person's cultural identity I realize that there are some categories I fall into that make me unique from those around me. I am know as a “cradle catholic”. This means I was raised in the Catholic Church from infancy.
Football was a lot more glamorous. So, shortly after the first weeks of school, came the first day of freshman football tryouts. Each day, we all walked up the hill to a practice field dressed in jeans and a sweatshirt and ran through a series of wind sprints and passing and catching drills. Every once in a
Football to me is just a chance to hit someone down. Football is a way to meet new people. I was a receiver and I loved catching the ball and running for the touchdown. Touchdowns were the best thing that I could do when I played football. I never scored a touchdown for my team but it was amazing blocking for my quarterback and running back.
Then finally it was time for our first game. I can 't remember who it was against but we started the game and it was a good game. tho we were winning of course. I was having a really good game with quite a few tackles and a catch but then in the third quarter when we were playing man defense, I was on my guy but when I looked back I saw the quarterback pass the ball and a big ole boy caught it. I cut back and made a diagonal path
I played well my 8th grade year and wanted to impress the varsity coach. So I attended every camp, workout, and winter practice to hopefully even get his attention. Even if I didn’t perform well I made sure I would always hustle and have a great attitude towards the game. The first day of practice I went and warmed up with the JV squad. In the middle of stretching the varsity coach shouted at me, “Green!
‘Who am I?’, ‘What do I want to do in my life’ are questions asked to me many times throughout my life- by my parents, my teachers and my friends. Every time they ask this kind of questions, I always give them, the exact same response or something along the lines of- ‘I don’t know’. One thing I realized after losing 2 of my best friends is that I am someone that needs companionships and It was the 5th grade where I fell in love with football. Before the 5th Grade I played football, for club teams, however, I did not ‘love’ it. That was until I met my two closest friends or my only friends for that year and the year after that.
I am a person who loves football, it has been my love and passion ever since I was a child. It has been my go to place when things got rough as I was older, to where I can just play a game or practice to take my mind off of things. I am a young adult, who has lost his mother as a child, and whose father was never in his life. I have a large family and I love each and every one of them, even if there are some who tend to
He also has football camps for everyone to go too. He goes to schools and gives motivational speeches to young kids.
