The first time on a football field and i was very hyped about it cause i got to play and the coach put me as starter because i was the biggest one on the field. The very first play we got sacked but are left lineman didn't stop the ball they got pushed over and we got sacked. The ball was on the 25 yard line and we were trying to get to the fifteen yard line to get the first down and we were short 10 yards but we could still get cause if we work hard you play hard. Then we said hike the ball was handed of to the running we tried to stop them but they still got the touchdown. They tried to make us go to right side on a counter play but we read there play and we stopped them from getting the first.
Linemen, on a football team, are great examples of this because the quarterback, running backs, and wide receivers get all the credit for great plays and touchdowns, while linemen have to block the three-hundred-pound man in front of them every time, or the play will get blown up. Team players don’t do things for themselves, they do it for the benefit of the team. In a team player’s mind, the betterment of the team must come first. No matter who scores a touchdown, goal, basket, or run, a team player has to let go of all individualism and do the right thing for the whole team. In soccer, if a teammate gets open down field and you have an opponent in front of you, a team player would pass it to their open teammate, while an individualist would attempt and juke out the opponent or try and show off and possibly lose the ball.
A scene that accurately represents my theme is when the football team was at football camp before the season had started and the coaches felt that the team was not working together and practicing well enough so Coach Boone, the head coach, decides that until they start practicing better, they will be practicing three times every day until he feels that the team is working to the level they need to be. So one day after the third practice of the day team captain
Football holds its fans together as a huge and tight community. Fans wear same gears to the game, go to after parties and even make friends during the games. Yes, there is a reason why people claim that college is the best part of his or hers life! On the other hand, the fact that the NFL game is on Sunday makes some working people prefer to watch it on TV instead of going. The teams have fans from it own region most of the time.
An inspiring person in my life was a man named Donte Cunningham he also was my former football coach as a kid. The reason I say was because about three years ago he passed away from cancer.I met Donte Cunningham through a youth sports football team named the East Cleveland Chiefs. Throughout my years playing coach Cunningham taught me a lot of valuable lessons. I remember he used to always tell me on the way to football games “Jamal don’t waste your talent no matter what you do in life do not waste your talent”. I really didn’t understand what that meant until I got older and noticed how many people are actually talented but disregarded it for something less important.Me and my coach had a very close relationship I started playing for his football
“The true competitors, though, are the ones who always play to win” (“Tom Brady BrainyQuote”). This quote was said by Tom Brady in discussing the importance of being a hardworking and dedicated athlete. Tom Brady grew up watching football, imitating such players like Joe Montana and Steve Young. After high school, he was drafted in the 1995 MLB Draft.

MY MEMOIR ROUGH DRAFT It was a cold morning on Saturday October,2,2013 and this football game was in Manchester, Michigan. This game was really important, because our football team was playing a team that we almost beat last time which i wanted to win. but that game made us be 0-4. And we were playing a undefeated team, the buccaneers and I was looking for a win because in school People would say that “we suck” or “you never was going to win”, it would all come back to my mind on this day but in my head i told myself “that this would be a close game but we would win.So while our team was warming up i told our team ‘that we will win we to stay confintent in the late in the game and play to win’. In that brief second everyone felted and looked like they wanted to win as much as i did and then so we ran out to our spots to start on offence.
When the desegregation began the sports teams had to merge into one and this presented a big obstacle for the towns’ most loved sport which is football. Despite the adversity the football team came together but had some major issues but to get to a successful story they had to overcome a lot of adversity such as the segregation of their school, the matter of who’s gonna be head coach, and getting the players to play as a team. This is one of favorite movies because it shows how through all the odds that were stacked against them they overcame the odds such as racism and relationship building to form a high caliber team. The major theme of this movie was racism and that was followed up with various sub themes but three that stuck out to me were racial ideology, overcoming adversity, and the building of friendships. When I first began to analyze this film, you had to think about the period in which it actually took place which was 1971 in rural southern Virginia before title IX was even passed.
The hard part was to find one that would give me a tryout. I ended up making a team called the Spanish town football club they weren’t the best but they taught me a lot about the game I spent a year there. My next task was to get on my prep school team who were ranked #7 in the whole nation at the time. I remember the night before open tryouts because all I was thinking about was me not making it. I was an only child but I had a cousin who was a year older me he taught a lot.
Matthew Matuska October 14, 2016 7th period Analytical Essay How to Play Linebacker “There are sports and then there is football,” according to Coach Lorenzen. Everyone wants to be the quarterback, but on defense the linebacker is the quarterback. Linebackers are the people of the defense that stand behind the four guys that are on the ball. A read is when you watch what the offense does, if they show run you fill your gap and make the tackle. If the offense show pass you drop back and cover a wide receiver.
