I only ever played this game with my close neighbors, being that it involved running around in the community. It was a very big part of my friend group because, it is what brought us together every weekend. - Adolescents: When playing competitive games, such as soccer, I was taught how to play this game through my dad when I was younger. The most enjoyable part of the game was the feeling of scoring a goal. I shared this activity with my friends, dad, and sister.
Going from youth sports to school sports was an enormous change. The players were bigger, faster, and stronger. Also, practice was much more difficult with stricter coaches and tougher drills. My first year of junior varsity football was terrifying. There was a select group of players who were significantly bigger than the rest of the team.
For many years has football has been considered the utmost dangerous sport in high school, but recently many new studies have been made to prove the exact opposite. High school football gives money to the school and improves the school. In high school sports when a team wins the championship the school gets money that can be used towards hiring new teachers, providing scholarships for students, buying new books, and overall improving the school itself. When a high school football team wins the championship the team's school gets $400,000 that can be spent on the school in many different forms.
Camaraderie: Unlike many other sports, football requires dozens of players who have committed to training and working towards the same goal. The bond or brotherhood that football develops while working toward this goal is unlike that of any other sport. 2. Work Ethics: Football requires timing, precision and execution to be successful on the field. Those things are only developed during practices which can be a burden and grind during the heat and dog days of summer conditioning.
If you are on a competition team, practices may start speeding up around October through February and weekend practices may be added. Whether you are working on cheers for a game or practicing a routine repeatedly for an upcoming competition, practices are a great way to have fun, work hard, and bond with your
Courage is doing what you know is the right thing even when it is hard to do. Courage is the one thing that I had to have my whole life playing sports. Being smaller and shorter than everyone else on and off the field, it always made me half to work harder than everyone and to have a different mentality than most people did. With courage and hard work I was able to survive on the field. Starting at five years old I was always the little guy playing football, baseball, and basketball, all sports of which size does matter, now there are a plethora of really superb athletes that are small but if you look at the percentage of them compared to the ones that are twice their size it’s a huge difference.
When children play the sport, it changes their viewpoint to a different set of mind. According to Youth Activities a sport article states, “ Life is about competition- whether it is playing a football not, but the sport will toughen them up and let them know to compete for what they want to achieve”(Youth Activities). In life, not everything is easy. Life is nothing but competition and people are always competing with each other.
Why Student Athletes Quit It is a well known fact that for an athlete to reach and compete in the elite level, a certain degree or mastery and proficiency must first be attained. Research suggests that guided training from an early age greatly influences what an athlete’s level of achievement will ultimately become. Hours of training alongside cognitive and physical development gives a good start for children when they have selected a sporting endeavor. Also, it has been shown that athletes who input more time into their sport perform better than their peers.
N.C. A&T for example, possesses that one in every twenty year player who just wows his teammates, opponents and the world. Black college football possesses some of the best athletes in the country but these athletes often come with baggage. Baggage meaning, there’s a lot that comes with this specific player whether it’s his performance in the classroom or who he is as a person. Big time college football programs must deal with this problem as well but its higher chance of coming across a HBCU football coach’s desk than an SEC coach’s desk.
High and his name is Logan Northup from Sigourney. I have inspired my brothers to play every year and my Dad coaches them too but they have never been undefeated. Logan taught me tricks and techniques because he played soccer in college. He got me started playing soccer for William Penn College youth leagues after I got too old to play for Sigourney anymore.
When football season finally arrived, I found myself on the varsity team. I thought it was going to be a repeat of my past two seasons of me just being another benched player. But I actually started for more than half the season as defensive linemen. Even on games where I didn’t start, I was getting a lot of playing time. That really pushed me to be even better for my senior season.
Sammy Baugh was the greatest QB but even though he was great other players were just like him in other areas. College Football was also excelling at this time. “U of A finished second in the whole country in 1933, with a 79-11-15”(Lawrence 3). All NFL football players had to come from somewhere and a lot of them came from the U of A college. College football was being excelled at this time but the NFL still needed players to play.
Twenty years ago, children across the country played multiple sports to stay in shape, make friends, but mostly, to stay active. If you were an athlete back then, you would go out daily and practice the "sport of the season" will your friends, such as: baseball in the spring; soccer in the fall; and basketball in the winter. Fast forward to now, where most athletes are still following this practice, however, more and more athletes are focusing on just one sport at a younger age. I believe that this "one sport specialization" is wrong because it can harm an athlete's physical, mental, and social well being.
