I was really hoping we would see a goal or two just to see how the fans would react and be able to join in the noise of the fans. The wish came true, in the second half the US scored two goals to win the match 2-0 for the fourth time in a row. When each goal was scored, the noise was almost painful. The amount of noise that the 22,000 people in attendance that night was fantastic. With the players celebrating and hearing the support from the fans, would have given them energy that they would struggle to find on an average night.
We were midway through a tough season as we trotted onto Maquoketa’s field. Injury and mental mistakes had dropped us to a disappointing 0-3. We were hungry for a win, and we were playing our rivals. Music blared as we put our pads on, and the feeling in my gut before the game is indescribable. Our fullback was back after suffering a knee injury in our first game, and our wide receiver was back after being sick for the past week.
Which is needed desperately especially when an obstacle is thrown into a player’s way. Perseverance is what our coaches preach to us every day because it is so important and is needed for us to be successful. Perseverance is what gets you up for 6am workouts, it gets you through the week when it’s been ruff. I have had many times in football where I had gotten a flag thrown on me and the next play I had push through the disappointment of getting one. Because I have and will be hit with many obstacles throughout life and learning to preserver will help me grow as I continue into adulthood.

We finished the season with one loss and we went into the tournament with our first game against Republic and we won pretty easy. We played against Bothwell in the final in Marquette. I was really nervous as I can remember and it was really hot in the gym. The game started and we were up by 4 at halftime. The second half started
Fast forward to the Fall of 2014, and I am in my 3rd yr in football, and I was killing it. I was starting cornerback, andwe won a championship. And I just went to Tennessee for a football tournament with kids that were a grade above me. Everything was going so well for me, but the one thing I was missing was a touchdown.
This stage is at the top and has the smallest box as there isn 't as many people in the excellence stage than there are in the foundation stage for example. To get to this stage the participants will have of had to compete since a young age and work their way up through the continuum by developing their skills and ability and competing regularly. In this stage it will be elite athletes and coaches. A sporting example of someone from this stage would be Lionel Messi, this is because he has been playing football all his life and has worked his way through each stage by developing his skills and competing regularly from county to regional to national.
So I choose the second option at first it wasn't worth it. Because I was, working so hard ever day and I still wasn't starting until one practice I did really good on scout defense for the starting offense that the head coach gave me a chance to start that week. I did really well during the game and earned my starting spot which was the turning point for me in football because I learned not everything is given to you sometimes you have to work extremely hard to get what you want. This lesson is something I don't just use for football, but
“He’s at the 40, 30, 20, 10! Oooh, I don’t think he’s getting up from that hit.” Recreational and professional football players are fun to watch, but these players have higher risks of injuries, that they are willing to put on the line. As a soon to be parent, I would hesitate to let my son play football because of the obvious warning signs shown, consequences of playing, and the devastations of the injuries. On the stands, fans are going crazy and enjoying their time watching two hundred to four hundred pound men aggressively beat each other.
I’ve been on the field plenty of times witnessing head injuries and the effects it does to them. My freshman year I witnessed a severe concussion. One of my teammates at practice was playing quarterback, running a routine play and one of our defensive guys looked to make just a regular routine tackle but our quarterback didn’t get up right away. In fact, he was out cold, there wasn’t anything about the hit that looked out of the ordinary. The coaches scrambled to get the trainer and when he got out there he went through a series of questions with him to evaluate his alertness and consciousness.
Coaches drill players to tackle head first with as much force as possible. Though this is an effective strategy, it is also incredibly dangerous. In Nate Jackson’s article “The NFL’s Head Cases” he reports, “Some say players should block and tackle with the shoulder pads instead. Doing that means choosing a side, trying to hit the opponent with the left or right shoulder. That technique will get you cut by any professional team.
I had to get my mind right that whole weekend because I knew it was going to be a big game for me. I just have to go out there and “Ball out.” People doubted me and said I couldn 't guard number 3 so I watch pros and trained myself because I knew he was a good receiver. When people doubt me I get mad and try my best to prove them wrong.
