One specific player that kept me sane was Napheesa Collier. One of my best friends and also THE best basketball player I have ever played with, she showed me what it took to be a great athlete. Not only is she one of the best women’s basketball players in the country playing at UCONN, but she is also one of the humblest people I have ever met. I believe that she is another person that helped me find my passions for the game. Playing with her for 3 years was one of the best experiences for me because I was challenged by her hard work ethic every day in practice and got to guard her every single day.
It was game day today. My teammates and I had a game against our rivalry high school Alta and we were pumped because we have beaten them every year since 2014. This year felt like we would keep that streak up and in motion. They had 6 really tall players while we only had 2. It made us all nervous for a while until we seemed to get over it.
Michael Jordan a former professional basketball player also considered one of the best to ever play the game has changed the league in many ways. Jordan born in Brooklyn, New York 1963, achieved many great goals during his college ,and high school career. Jordan changed the face of the NBA forever becoming a iconic “poster child” for the NBA because of his significant play style. The great contributions he made to the sport helped catapulted the game into a new level of popularity globalizing the sport even more. Jordan also influenced some of todays great players in the NBA now.
Basketball is one of the most popular sports in the world and one of the most widely viewed. The sport of basketball is known as a fun past time for any person young or old. I love to watch and play the game, basketball is a very entertaining sport and can be played by anyone. Basketball has many negative and positive things about it based on my opinion. Basketball is a great way of exercise and a great way to have fun with friends.
Many critics and fans around the world call it the NBA greatest show on earth. No other league around the world brings what the NBA’s game has brought every season. The greatest plays, games, dunks, players and passion for the basketball are reasons why the fans keep watching. The NBA’s style of playing the game has changed dramatically through the years. From the 1980’s to 2002, even though many aspects of the playing style have gone in to new era, NBA’s style of playing basketball kept its heart the same.
I have been cheering for five years now. I can not remember the times when I was not a cheerleader, it is hard to imagine myself doing anything other than cheer or simply not cheering at all. I fell in love with the sport and within time, my passion towards it grew even more. Cheerleading consumed my life, it was my only focus. I was fortunate enough to grow up with coaches that pushed me to reach limits I did not even know I had, as well as teammates whom I shared the same passion towards the sport with.
I still love the game of basketball, but not enough to pour ten to fifteen hours a week into it, like I do with lacrosse. I absolutely adore the opportunity I get to play a sport I love every day. Our team this year has a great chance of pushing for a state title, and I could not have more hope, nervousness, and excitement built up inside of me. Every time I think about the chance I get to enter the field with Brentwood across my chest, I feel ecstatic. I feel blessed with such an incredible opportunity that I never want to take for granted.
Unfortunately, we lost but it was a great experience. We may not have accomplished all of our team goals, like winning the league, but the season was still great. My favorite memory was senior night because I was able to go out one last time and play in front of the home crowd. I remember coach telling me to go out there and do what I do best. That night I played one of my best games all season scoring three
Because of this hard work, I lettered varsity my freshman year at Crown Point, and I was placed on the varsity Munster volleyball team. I have been on the most successful club team around. We have gotten third place at our national tournament two years in a row, and also won our national tournament one year. People say “you do not know what you have had, until you have lost it.” The meaning of this quote has become appallingly clear, as it has become my reality. Up until now, I have always taken volleyball for granted.
Homecoming is something that all ages can take part in, although high school students definitely enjoy it the most. The whole week is the highlight of the year, full of traditions and activities that keep all the students busy. One specific tradition that has gone on for as long as the history of homecoming is the football players handing out their jerseys to their girlfriends, homecoming dates, or just good friends. Many girls, especially upperclassmen girls, look forward to wearing jerseys. This year, there will be no wearing of the jerseys to look forward to due to a new idea that has sprung up against high schoolers wishes.
He was also a member of the U.S. Olympic team and won gold medals in 2008 and 2012( Smith 1 ). On January 1, 2012 he became engaged to get married to Samantha Brison. And in 2012 he led the Miami heat to victory. An unusual combination of skill and power gave Lebron James the basketball career and olympic career of a lifetime. “Lebron James will be a force on the court for a long time, he has the skills to be one of the best players in the history of the game”( Hill 101
I never realized that years into the future I would fill their shoes, and carry the responsibility of being the person little girls looked up to. I didn’t know back then I would come the tremendously frightening and honoring understanding of how much I could influence a young person’s life. In our town there is a youth football program we have come to know as “Cadiz Biddy Football.” They start in August and play four teams two times each, then go into playoffs to see who gets to compete in the “Superbowl”. Along with the football program is a cheerleading program. Girls third through sixth grade sign up every year to cheer for the four quarters of every football game, along with doing a routine to entertain fans at halftime.
The world tells us that a leader is strong, commands a crowd, and enacts visionary plans. While these characteristics are important, my experiences have shown me that a true leader is one who continually sacrifices—whether time, energy, or comfort—to create the magic for others. I continually strive to meet others’ needs, whether that means scheduling a second meeting to accommodate everyone, comforting a club member after they receive bad news, or making sure all of the kids are included when playing with my Little. Through this, it has been my goal to become both a better person and leader, while also inspiring others to do the
To me an organization such as the National Honor Society (NHS) is a way for me to strive to do my very best. Not only would it help me try to keep up with my grades, it will also make me more involved with my community through service and leadership. To me NHS is a way to shine through leadership and character in and out of school. It’s also an opportunity to learn how to cooperate with others and their communities. If I am selected to this group, I would contribute to the continued growth and success of the National Honor Society by setting high standards in my grades and achievements.
