Tony Nathan grew up in Alabama where he loved to play sports. When he was in high school he tried to quit the football time. However, Tony’s mother Louise Nathan did not let him and took him straight to the head coach and asked for Tony’s spot back. He was accepted back where he played at safety. But one game changed that; he went from hardly playing to in on every offensive snap.
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.
For a whole semester, he would meet me every weekday and he would oversee my workout, often providing guidance and motivation. Before our senior season, Coach Shambaugh met with the seniors and he told us about his plan for us and what he would do with us. One of the many changes that Coach Shambaugh made was hiring Coach Garett for the linemen. Coach Garett was exactly what the line needed he pushed us to expect more from ourselves and work harder. Now I am done playing football, I will never put on my pads again.
There are a few things that can bring the town of Odessa, Texas together, football is one. Certain families aggrandize over the sport more than others. There is a direct contrast between the families of Boobie Miles and Brian Chavez. Boobie Miles’ uncle LV Miles always pushes Boobie at home and tries to live out his high school dreams of playing football, which he could not do because of segregation and the black school not having a football program at the time, whereas Brian pushes himself to succeed in both football and academics because he knows that there is life after high school football. Boobie Miles was passed through school not having to do any work, but after he was injured it seemed as though he did not matter anymore.
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
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 for my day to day life and it's honestly helped me out a lot and it's one of the lessons that I learned from football that is still helping me grow up. So the football season continued and I found myself getting really invincible and I felt like I had my position secured but I was wrong I took it for granite and the coach had put the starting running back at my position during practice so I learned real fast about competition and at first I didn't like it actually I really hated because it made me have to try during practice but I didn't really get the big picture until I got older then I realized that it was really good for me and it made me a whole
It seemed like sometimes the owner would try to put together a decent team, and other times it seemed like the team was a tax write-off. Perhaps the owner Bill Bidwill had the best intentions when he would hire a new coach every other season but to the fans it seemed like he was just pulling names out of a hat. When Bill Bidwell decided to hand the football operations over to his football savvy son in 2007, the franchise took a positive direction. Bill Bidwill’s son, Michael, has done a good job since taking over for his father. He really got it right when he promoted Steve Keim as the new GM and managed to steal former Coach of the year Bruce Arians away from Indianapolis.
“Our coaches would take us out in a second. So wh y would we tell them?” stated lineman Matt Selvaffio. Id. Senior quarterback Garrick Jones sa id despite being knocked unconscious during a game, he got up a nd threw another pass. Id .
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.
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
The star running back was hit in the knee and injured. The first person coach saw was Jamel he ordered him to “get in the game.” Jamel answered with “I can’t I’m a lineman not a running back.” The coach soothed his nerves by telling him “you can do this the team is relying on you.” So he went into the game, the play was a 22 dive. Jamel was getting the ball. “Down, set, hut!” Jamel got the ball and took off running, but was tackled quickly and only gained one yard. He was disappointed with himself for not
So when he was deciding he got his inspiration from his coach saying that he was amazing and ended up going to Notre Dame for football. He was very good there and he had one of the greatest comebacks in history when he fought the flu to spark a fourth quarter comeback against the University of Houston. He had many different comebacks, but that one was amazing. But in his junior year he redshirted and he didn 't get to play the season before from a shoulder injury. He had big hopes that when he came back onto the field everyone would scream and yell for him, but since he was out he lost the starting position and couldn 't play that much.
