Every one has that one passion that they either didn’t care for at first or clung right to and either way didn’t let go. Mine is football. The Experience I want to share is my football experience. Now I have much love for football but in both playing and watching. I began playing football when I was 8 years old on the Iberia Youth football league. My first football team name was the browns.
