¨All i ever wanted to do was hit people, is that so bad? Does that make me a bad guy?¨ (Lynch 1). Arlo disagrees that it makes him a bad person, but he agrees that Lloyd needs to change the way he plays football.

He made a lot of mistakes based on arrogance. I don’t admire him at all for his courage nor his noble ideas. Really, I think he was just plain crazy,” shows that Shaun believes Chris had no common sense in his doing for leaving society for the wild. I agree with Callarman’s position of thinking “ he had no common sense” and that he was “bright and Ignorant” because Chris thinks he did not have much to offer in his society, ditched all his possessions to take a trip into the Alaskan Wilderness and did not have much common sense or survival skills. Chris McCandless was very courageous for ditching all his possessions to take a trip in the wilderness.
The Permian Panthers were custom to winning, but this starts to disappear when their lead tailback suffers from a life changing injury. Everyone lost hope in the team, but Coach Gaines believed that he can uplift the teens and bring them to victory. The coach has a way with the football players during the half time.

Darrel, or Darry has always wanted to become something amazing in life, but sadly when his parents died in a fatal car crash, he was left to raise his two younger brothers, Sodapop, and Ponyboy. More specifically, Darrel chooses his gang over his potential future to care for his friends but sadly, “. . . Darry has never really gotten over not going to college” (Hinton 109). Basically, anybody would choose to finish a career over a more strenuous life of arduous occupations. Of course, Darry would have chosen college over two jobs, but because of his compassion towards the gang, he would choose them over anything.
I think he just wanted to pursue life in a different way. Chris was not seeing life the way anyone else was, so he decided to brush off into the wild and be free on his own. Though he did not survive, he was still a very bright, arrogant human being. Shaun Callarman states, “He had no common sense, and he had no business going into Alaska with his Romantic silliness.” Chris knew going into the wild that he did not have much survival skills, but that did not stop him from doing what he wanted to do because he did not care about society and was just completely over everything which was why he made the move to the wilderness.
In the end, Neil took his own life because he was so hurt and tired of the pressure he was under from his parents.

Biff’s idea of his father suddenly changed when Biff discovered his dad cheating on his mom. His entire outlook of life changed, and suddenly he no longer cared about his future in football or college. Willy raised Biff to think that being popular would get him further than having good grades: “Bernard can get the best marks in school y’understand but in the business world, y’understand, you are going to be five times ahead of him. That’s why I thank almighty God you’re both built like Adonises. Because the man who makes an appearance in the business world, the man who created personal interest, is that man that gets ahead.”

But that has not stopped him from pursuing greatness and on the verge of leading his Seattle Seahawks to a third straight Super Bowl appearance. If Wilson listened to draft analysts and scouts, he would not be in this position in his life.

Although Reagan was skilled in having corporate America succeed, the average American citizen did not gain the same prosperity. In Friday Night Lights, the small town of Odessa is a truly American town based in Texas that was widely traditional in values, and conservative in politics. Through Schaller’s perspective, the town is quite paradoxical because although they support and vote for conservative
