After catching a game at Cincinnati McNicholas high school yesterday afternoon, I headed to Taft high school to watch another game. This one featured two Cincinnati high schools I had never watched play before. Aiken and Gamble Montessori, at a stadium I had never been to. When all was said and done the game ended up being hard faught and very compeitive and I got to see a player, who was as good as any I have watched this season. (NOTE-I AM USING ROSTER FROM HUDL.COM AND MAXPREPS.COM) ANY MISTAKES WITH PLAYERS AND NUMBERS COME FROM THERE With 7:49 left in the fast moving opening quarter, #25 Kenneth Jones II, from Gamble picked up 11-yards as he sprinted to his right and then moved up field like a gazelle.
With ten seconds left we sprinted down the court passed it to our best player and with three seconds left he got fouled for two shots. Everyone lined up, the people on the bench all the superstitious stuff we could think of. He got the ball. Took one dribble. Donk.
I had so much fun. I use to play football at recess, but now we do not have recess.in the fourth grade I had a chance for sports and I did basketball and football and track. I really did not like the couches so I dropped out of it so I just stared to do track and football. In football I did not do so well in tryouts I got a wide receiver and running back and I really wanted to be a QB. In track I did really good I got everything I wanted I had discus and shot put and I also did a 400 meter and got close to 3 but someone tied and I got 5th.
"From accounts of how it went down, the Warriors spent almost the entire fourth quarter fouling to get the ball back and force-feeding Chamberlain the ball," writes CBS Sports Royce Young. "New York coach Eddie Donovan said, 'The game
Wilt played outstanding in high school, which led to over 200 universities recruiting him. He chose the University of Kansas and in his first varsity game he scored 52 points. Wilt led the Jayhawks to the NCAA finals, but lost in double overtime to North Carolina. He averaged a little bit over 30 points a game and was selected twice to All-American teams during his college career. Just like in high school, Wilt played fantastic in college and he knew that it was time to go pro.
I high fived my teammates and the other team. Afterwards we took team photos, talked, and hugged for the last time as a team. It was sad but we were all pretty happy with ourselves for winning though. Couple months later, I 'm standing up before a bleacher full of parents smiling at their graduating 8th graders. I stood awkwardly as the teacher said my name and awards.
When someone crosses someone over then drains a shot. The best of all is when ETHS wins and we talk about how they used man to man defense to stifle New Trier’s three point attack. I love watching momentum shifts as a team goes on an eight to zero run randomly in the middle of the third quarter. I love listening to the play-by-play guy Chris paint the games picture with his words the way Shakespeare did with his plays. I love the way Ms. Brown tells the fans how the screen set by Nojel freed up a shot for Chris who wasn’t involved in the screen.
Four days and change after my mediocre tryout I was awarded the same phone call and sympathetic embrace from my parents. I woke to a loud buzzing noise late at night, a month before my birthday. Michael Spiro’s name had found its way to the lock screen of my phone. He texted me asking if I would be interested in trying out for soccer in the upcoming August season. I had not played soccer since 4th grade and never had played the goalie position so this proposal came as a major shock to me.
We were playing with only a few mistakes that night, and we worked together as a team, as a result we won our first game. I didn’t get any points that night.. every time I went up to serve, I could feel my father’s eyes boring into me! If I messed up, I could feel tears swelling up into my eyes, I just wanted to make him proud of me. My passes were not as good as what I usually
The next weekend we played Lee, our rivals. During the game everyone shared the ball, making us all happy—including the parents. We upset Lee, claiming our first victory of the season. It was monumental because the team believed in each other and beamed with confidence. We lost twice the rest of the season and won seven games.
