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.
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. While playing football in high school the legendary coach of the Alabama Crimson Tide, Bear Bryant came and stayed at Tony’s house until he agreed to go to Alabama for his college year. Tony did end up accepting
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.
My mouth dropped and turn to my dad and asked where are we going? The security guy said “they didn’t tell u my dad and I both said at the same time tell us what? You also get to go in the locker room to meet all the players. I could not help myself ,I started jumping up in down with excitement .Walking through the door I heard my name chanted , the closer I got .It was them, all I could remember thinking was how huge they were. This was nothing like watching the game on TV, it was real, face to face with my favorite team players.
I tried out for the football team and i made it and i got on the A team. The problem was that everyone thought that i would be on the B team so I started to feel bad. Everyone was thinking that I would do really bad at our first game. I was nervous but I was also ready to play. It was the day before the first football game.
The news crew thatinterviewed her asked her if she regrets not talking the offer she said, “That one isstill a no” they followed up with a different question, “what would you have donedifferently?” she replied, “say no to my mother” what else?

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!
Dee 's was not raise like this she learned this new behavior from when she was at college. When Dee insist to push her new attitude toward not getting the quilts and other heirlooms, this angered Mama because she knows that this is all a fake image Dee is filling her head with (Walker). Therefore, her family’s reaction to Dee’s new self was so important because now she is going to persist to continue her new way(Oswalt). Even with her family not accepting Wangero, Dee really was wanted her family to accept
For a whole semester, he would meet me every weekday and he would oversee my workout, often providing guidance and motivation. Before our senior season, Coach Shambaugh met with the seniors and he told us about his plan for us and what he would do with us. One of the many changes that Coach Shambaugh made was hiring Coach Garett for the linemen. Coach Garett was exactly what the line needed he pushed us to expect more from ourselves and work harder. Now I am done playing football, I will never put on my pads again.
‘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.
The season continued and it consisted of all half time blowout games. The team, the school, and the community were all very excited. We wanted to win a state championship. Everyone knew winning a state championship was going to be very difficult however because Stanberry was another undefeated team in another conference and on the other side of the playoff bracket. Stanberry was winning many blowout games like we were but everyone was saying how much harder the teams they were playing were.
The Day of the Big Game Have you ever been so nervous for something but also super excited at the same time? This happened to me on the day of my first tackle football game against our team 's biggest rivals (Linganore), in front of my family and friends on a perfect day for football. That is a day I will never forget. For the last few years I’ve had a love for football, but was only allowed to play flag football (no tackle football). I disliked flag football and was so happy when I finally was allowed to sign up for Urbana Hawks tackle football this Fall.
