Levido added the extras for the Bears to lead 10-2 after 27 minutes. North Sydney were well on top making strong metres up the middle, which allowed the backs plenty of room on the edges. A nicely weighted cross kick from Levido was marked by Burgess in the corner for the Englishman’s second of the day. Wyong came back and attacked the Bears try line but again they came up empty handed. The Bears got themselves out of trouble and Burgess made his old team mates pay, charging through the line to dash 60 metres for his hat trick.
Are High School Sports Dying? It’s the Friday night lights, the thrill of running out of the tunnel, the loud warm up music, the crowd yelling to support you, that every high school athlete looks forward to. Winning the rival game, going head to head against friends from other schools, creating memories that will last a lifetime, those crazy bus rides and the long ones home after a tough lost. You play because you love the game but others play for the social aspect. Lately, it hasn't been about the players so much anymore it's been about your last name, who your parents are and how much money your parents are willing to donate to the program in order for you to get that starting position or more playing time.
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. The game was tight until they got down on the 20 yard line and they got stopped by us. Right when they got down it started raining and we had to play in that but the ball was slippery for the quarterback and he keep on stumbling with the ball and he kept on fumbling but we tried to still get the ball back and they still got it back. They threw the ball right over us and there wide receiver caught the ball Still and we tried to play defense and we got beat every time. The way we got beat on the long passes was because they had
Little did I know at the time it would be me to make it. They ran the ball to my side of the field, and I made a tackle that resulted in a fumble that led to us scoring. The crowd in the stadium were ecstatic, I had people calling my name from the stands. I was happy at the time, but knew it was to be short lived, because the game wasn’t over. Their was still enough time on the clock for them to tie the game back up.
We executed our gameplan, and we won. Then, against Highland Park, we were going to stop David Sachs and Luke Norcia and make the rest of their team beat us. They did not. Then, with all the confidence in the world going into our first conference home game, we played Niles North, and they took it to us. Unlike New Trier, Niles North was fast and wanted to run up and down, so we wanted to slow it down because they could not guard us in our half court offense.
One way that football tries to prevent it is by adding rules and regulations to the sport that make it harder for a player to get a concussion. One rule they added is if a player loses their helmet in the middle of a play. The play is immediately whistled dead. Another rule that they added is no head to head contact. Head to head contact is one of the easiest ways to get a concussion.
Guide our feet to move sooth and swift, and when a teammate is down give them a lift. As we look down the field for a run or pass, remember as your team we should always show class. We will play strong, and hard. If a penalty is given, let us accept our mistakes and know we are forgiven. Let our parents be proud of our actions and play.
Kids playing in the green backyard as a father cooks steaks on the barbecue, people enjoying a day at the beach, and friends drinking ice cold glass bottles of Coca-Cola at a soda bar. These are the images we think of when we are asked to describe the type of lifestyle that many immigrants thought America would provide them with when they arrived in the United States. Coca-Cola’s glass cup has long been an icon of the United States, representing the promise of an untroubled and blissful lifestyle for the growing middle class, a promise which had encouraged many to come to the United States in search of a better life. In the 1950s, the glass Coca-Cola cup had become the well-known icon of the carefree lifestyles of Americans themselves, representing how joyous and relaxed life in the United States was. The 1950s was a time of no worries, where almost everyone could achieve a comfortable lifestyle and have the ability to afford caring for a family, and Coca-Cola sought to use this idea to
Now you are part of the team. Then the fame and the glory come flying at you. Most of the time this fame gets to you and your head and you slowly start to go tumbling downhill. This is a common theme among young and upcoming high school lacrosse stars. According to Lax Power, nearly 70% of the high school lacrosse stars end up outraging their coaches mid way through their career, while the other 30% race away from the sport all together.
One time when I was in 6th grade; playing with my soccer team in traverse city for the cherry cup festival. My team was in the championship game.We were all ready to win the game that day. I was so scared and pumped at the same time because I was ready to win but scared we might lose. In the middle of that game our goalie got hurt. The game paused and my coach looked at me and he said “ Keagan go get gloves and a goalie shirt on”.
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. Now I play soccer for the Oskaloosa team and I have played for them every year in the spring and fall.
