Freshmen year was a rude awakening of what I was getting myself into. Coach Smolder was the toughest coach I have ever had. Our first day of practice we had to run 66, 40 yard sprints and I did all that just to start kickoff return on a 7-3 playoff football team, but I was the only freshmen to start. Sophomore year came around and it was a great learning experience because I started offensive line and played over ¾ of the game at defensive end which was weird because I’ve always played middle linebacker. I suppose everyone was in a sophomore slump because that year we were mediocre, going 5-5, but I was the only sophomore to play and I even picked up a fumble and ran it in for a 43 yard touchdown, it was our best game if the year.

Considering the time that has lapsed sine the trio managed to stay in the game for entire 60 minutes as back in December 21, in 2014 leaving everyone speculating what this type of offence is capable of yielding. Todd Haley, offensive coordinator, said that the most prudent approach is to remain focused on the task at hand and try and reap the most out the players.
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.

The year after that I suffered my first concussion. I missed a month of school and missed all of my wrestling season.

I scoffed, "He's not proud. He's disappointed." Getting ready for the most important game of my eleven year soccer career, I began recollecting on how my love of soccer began. Dad's worship of soccer was very apparent. Every Saturday morning of the soccer season, or the futbol season as he preferred to call it, my father would eagerly run down the stairs wearing his beloved bright red jersey to watch Arsenal play.
