The many times I had loss to him it just made my confidence just go down the drain a lot of the time. My first time Frankie and I had wrestled against each other it was during the first tournament during the season in the semi-finals. The match was a very close one it was a five point to three point match which he had won. Frankie had just dominated the match with his strength and not by his wrestling ability it just made me realize I had to work harder in wrestling practice and the weight
I’m positive that Lance Armstrong is well known world widely, since he has been able to achieve much in few period of time. Now, for him to confess, this would mean many people will question his credibility as well. To fight and still lie, would also do him no good because people will still perceive him as deceiver. In many cases we have seen how people are influenced by those whom they follow. In most cases if a child is looking up to someone who lives his or her life unethically, in one way or the other, that child will draw something from that person.
Unfortunately, we lost but it was a great experience. We may not have accomplished all of our team goals, like winning the league, but the season was still great. My favorite memory was senior night because I was able to go out one last time and play in front of the home crowd. I remember coach telling me to go out there and do what I do best. That night I played one of my best games all season scoring three
It is one of my favorite memories. Not because of the importance of the game or the team we beat, but because of what it did for me. It was the first time I really felt like I was making a difference on a team. I was finally getting the opportunity to prove myself and I was doing it . From that point on I was confident in my ability and I haven’t doubted myself since.
When I ended my sophomore year, I felt as if I was on top of the world. My grades were top tier, I had a successful soccer season, and I had just been assigned the drum major position in my school’s marching band. However about halfway through the following summer, I was diagnosed with depression.Instead of trying to fight through my condition, I allowed myself to slink deeper and deeper into an abyss. I knew that in my tenure as drum major, I would need to have a stable mind in order to be effective and have a possible impact on the band but I truthfully did not care. The only thing I cared about was my own personal benefit and the perks that I would receive due to my rank.
That moment was my best time and also very nervous time that I ever had in my whole life. Because of the parents cheering for our team, we won the 1st game by score 6 to 0. I also scored one goal from that game. We were very happy. After the game ended, we went to our coach, then he said “Good job everybody!
I was even able to make the SACS Varsity cheer team, which is an unforgettable experience knowing that they are one of the best in town. Every single accomplishment has been worked for with hours and hours of preparation, and even years in experience. Nobody would ever imagine that my first year trying out as a cheerleader I had been rejected. Although I did fail at cheer my first try, it only fueled me to try out again the following year. After weeks and
This year I was honored to be the captain of the cheerleading team in Zapata High School. We started since June in the summer to try to perfect the simple stunts needed to know before we got to the more challenging and difficult ones. This was not easy for us, we failed and failed until the 100th time, we would finally stick the stunt. I would blame this entirely on the fact that not all the cheerleaders have taken physics in high school with Mrs. Pangi. If all of the team would’ve known at least the basics of physics, we wouldn’t struggle as much in the stunting area of cheerleading.
Because of this hard work, I lettered varsity my freshman year at Crown Point, and I was placed on the varsity Munster volleyball team. I have been on the most successful club team around. We have gotten third place at our national tournament two years in a row, and also won our national tournament one year. People say “you do not know what you have had, until you have lost it.” The meaning of this quote has become appallingly clear, as it has become my reality. Up until now, I have always taken volleyball for granted.
Somewhere along the way, we lost sight of what teamwork is, but we found that again and implemented it throughout the rest of our season. I will be so sad to leave this final season because I have learned so much from everyone on my team. When we look back years from now, we won’t remember the fighting; we will remember the way we felt as we succeeded and all the good things that came from being a
“Coach Al Sears was the best coach and I was sad to see him leave. He pushed all the wrestlers to their limits and then some. He truly was the best and hopefully Coach Joe can meet his expectations or better yet even surpass him as a wrestling coach.” Jamie said. A four-time All-American wrestler in the heavyweight division at Southern Illinois University at Edwardsville and highly successful wrestling coach at Belleville West for the past 14 years, Sears has been elected as part of the 2015 class into the Illinois Wrestling Coaches and Officials Association Hall of Fame. Coach Sears had well deserved this place in the hall of fame as he lead the Belleville west wrestlers to countless victories and even gotten wrestlers scholarships to multiple universities or colleges.
One of the best games of his college career. This game was Cams last game as a college athlete. In the 2011 Football season Cam threw for 2854 total career yards, and rushed 1473 yards. He won this with hard work and pure talent. He is a true role model and a hero to me.
You have to work for them. Once the season started I knew what I had to do to get my chance to win a state title. I started the season off, being ranked first at my weight class which was 106 lbs. That was a huge confidence booster and that 's when I knew it was my chance to win a state title. I went through the first half of the season being undefeated and then the second match back from Christmas break I bumped up to wrestle the third ranked wrestler at 113 lbs.
How Sports Have Affected Me When entering high school I knew that I wanted to be involved. Being involved meant that I would make unbreakable bonds with teammates and find out what I had to offer them, my team. My high school had so many activities to offer, so I decided it wouldn’t hurt to try a few. The sport that I will never forget is cheerleading. Many would say that cheerleading isn’t a sport.
Of course, my team decided we were not going to take the game too serious since we won before and karma caught up with us really fast. Somehow, two quarters in and we were losing terribly but I had to let my team with a horrible fall to my head. In the beginning, I was unaware of injury to my head so I kept on playing till I felt dizzy and knew something was wrong. Even after my terrible fall, I wanted
