Football is a great sport to teach young boys to work for what they want which is winning the game and eventually taking the championship. When my child plays football, he will gain character and that he can use that to benefit him on life skills. Although some would argue that their child cannot play football because it's too dangerous and is a great cause of concussions or any type of injuries, parents also need to understand the viewpoint of their children. Understanding they want to do and extracurricular activities they want to be a part of. I still strongly agree that I would let my child play football because it's a stress reliever, gain the life experience, and it builds character.
When I was playing baseball I wasn’t happy; it was complete torture. When I was in cross country practice I loved life. I knew it was what I wanted to do, not baseball. “I just don’t know how to leave baseball; my dad loves that I play his favorite sport.” I spoke to my mom and she suggested I enjoy my high school career doing something I enjoy. My decision is clear but I just don’t know how to tell my dad; sometimes we are concerned about other people’s feelings, that we don’t do what we truly love.
Imagine a person putting in so much work and dedication towards something that they care little to nothing about. Well, that was a reality for me. After my freshman year season of football, I began to not have a passion for the game I had played since second grade. The lack of passion for the game of football led me to start playing volleyball, and that decision had so many positive effects on me. The most prevalent of those effects are how I met so many wonderful people through the game, how I completed my dream of becoming a Division one athlete, and how I got to help out so many people through volleyball.
I also have a deep love for football as many of the kids in this story did. The kids in this story talked about how when they were young they would go to the games on Friday nights, and dream about what the future for them would be like. They could not wait to play for the Permian school district, and be the town heroes. This aspect of the story for me was so relatable. I too would go to Scott City Beaver games when I was young, and dream about what my future would hold as a football player.
We are thankful for our coach’s guidance and class. Help us be good sports, and show pride for our team. We show we are grateful for helping us follow our dreams. Amen.” As we recite the Lord’s Soccer prayer every time we walk on, and off the field. Soccer is not just a sport, it’s a passion.
I hammered it with all my might and watched with growing excitement as it slowly rolled into the back of the net. My teammates erupted in cheers as a huge grin spread across my face. Reflecting back at that first goal I ever scored as a little six-year old AYSO player on the Bumblebees team, I recognized this moment as the true beginning of my soccer journey. Over the last seven years, I have experienced a multitude of highs and lows, but I can point to one particular event that affected me in such a way that altered
There’s people passionate about this sport, and I’m one of them. I began playing soccer when I was eight, which isn’t a very long time, but throughout the six years I’ve been playing, soccer has changed my life. My weekends, as well as some of my weekdays, have been devoted to soccer. Soccer has taught me how to be humble, kind and how to make sure my emotions don’t overpower my
My sophomore year in High School I had to choose one sport to play. My family has a great history of playing football and that is what they wanted me to pursue. It seemed like I never wanted to be at practice, though the only reason I stayed in it was because the off-season made me bigger,stronger and more nimble. Senior year came around and I was invited to come back and play hockey. My mind had been overwrought because I have not skated in a while.
That is why I love football because it has multiple things that pulls you in. It can be a life changer because you have to stay on top of your game to play and it keeps family’s close. Movies and bored games don’t pull you in as much as football. People always take rain checks on bored games and movie nights. When football comes around they are ready to either support or watch and scream with you.
My first cross country race was finally over and I thought to myself, why did I join this sport? Junior year was my first season of cross country. I wanted to do a fall sport to get involved in my school and meet more people. My friend had been trying to persuade me to join the cross country team with her all summer and I finally gave in. I figured it was a good sport to do because of the inexpensive
