Joey didn’t even know how Conner managed to spread the story this far. “It was only a baseball game!” Joey told everyone. He felt so hopeless and unwanted. At lunch no one wanted to sit with him and people left notes on his locker saying he should go on a diet.
My teammates tackled me celebrating, leaving the ball in the back of the net and the goalie with her head between her hands. The scoreboard ticked the last few seconds away before letting out a sound of excitement that was prior a sound of disappointment. Losing in the sectional finals was devastating, but it motivated me in the off season. Coaches always say “we can learn from this loss” and I never took it seriously. Our failure set us up for more success than imagined.
This hits especially close to home for Doug because his brother, Lucas, has recently returned home missing both of his legs. Suddenly, Doug sees Coach in a whole new way; he views Coach as someone who has many gruesome experiences he struggles with. Doug wants Coach to help Lucas, who is dealing with his own burdens of war, but Coach always brushes off his requests. Finally, one day outside the library, Coach Reed says to Lucas, “‘Maybe you could come work for me’,” (Schmidt pg. 337). This influences Doug indirectly because Lucas now has a job, making him feel purposeful, and the money Lucas makes is going towards Doug’s future college education.

Michael goes through much heartbreak and doubtfulness when he goes and plays in minor league baseball. Greg, struggles with his family and school as he is starting middle school with the upperclassmen. Ben McBain is every football team 's all star player. He 's an all- around guy who can play almost any position. Ty Lewis can’t believe it when Coach recruits him for the football team.
"You can leave." Mrs. Godwin said to the now exited class. P.E. Class had just started, and the basketball team came in the gym to practice. They were making teams for lineball, when discovered they had an odd number of people. Coach Thrash asked if I could play with the red team, and I accepted his invitation.
Then lacrosse would get blamed for making the locker room being dirty even though it had clearly been baseball because the lacrosse players don’t go anywhere near the red clay that the baseball players play on. So, myself and a few others went to our principal and complained about the unfair treatment but nothing was really done about it. It was only a very minor issue in his eyes and something that could easily be worked out between the coaches without the interference of the principal. Things continued to steadily get worse until one day I saw a baseball player putting my goalie in a headlock
He encouraged biff to steal and cheat. Biff stole lumber from a construction site down the road and stole a football from his teams locker room for “extra practice”.

“ I keep picturing all these little kids playing some game in this big field of rye and all. Thousands of little kids and nobody’s around - nobody big, I mean- except me and I 'm standing on the edge of some crazy cliff. What I have to do to catch everybody if they start to go over the cliff I mean if they 're running and they don 't look where they 're going I have to come out from somewhere and catch them that 's all I do all day I just be the catcher in the rye and all…”(Salinger 173). Holden doesn’t want to grow up, and he doesn’t want anyone else to grow up.
Almost Making It Happen I expected to get a few bruises, but not a getting a concussion. Before the soccer game, my idea of a concussion was getting bumped in the head, receive headaches, and it would heal up in a week and then you would go back to the way you were. I was wrong. At times, concussions can be deadly, and if you have them more than once, it will decrease your chance of keeping your brain healthy and surviving. Concussions can also give you migraines and make you dizzy.
