We ran up the stairs and out onto the field to warm up. During warmups Coach Dietrich cam up to me and said, “You nervous?” “Yeah,” I replied, as I was as nervous as I’d ever been. “That’s good, you should be” he said and returned to the sideline. After warm ups we went to the sideline for the National Anthem. Then, we ran to the middle of the of the field as the announcer called our names, and t “Lets go boys, ball out on three, one, two, three,” Shouted Caleb as loud as a megaphone (simile), once the team reached the center.
Before we had to go to the ride I wanted to get my mind off of that so we went to go see a few characters. All of us stood in line for Sofia the First for about fifteen minutes until Sofia had to leave for a break. It was time for the Rockin’ Roller Coaster, just as before I was still very nervous. Even though I was scared they made me ride it anyway. We all scanned our Magic band to get into the Fast pass line.
It was the day before the first football game. Everybody was happy and couldn’t wait except for me. I was nervous and really wanted to do my best and prove to everybody that I was good enough. I was just sitting down waiting for school to start. Then I started to talk to my friend who underestimated me.
The second thing about learning the fundamentals is to not be afraid to ask questions. This is another very important thing I learned going through my freshman year because when Friday night lights came around everything seemed to cause butterflies in my stomach causing me to be afraid to ask or say anything but I thought to myself and I asked myself “if I want to get on the field I have to ask questions” so when that happened I started to gain confidence and that helped me get on the field. The last thing about learning the fundamentals about football is to always stay
I kept ignoring any conversation with my friends that related to the dance squad team because I did not want to admit to the insecurities that were running through my mind – I pretended that I didn’t want to be on the dance squad, but deep down inside it is all I thought about. It is all I wanted, and that is what I did. Suddenly, I gathered enough confidence (with a lot of encouragement from my friend Ashley) and told myself I will just try out for the dance squad team. By then, a week had already passed, and the girls who signed up had already learned the choreography. I felt as if I would be too behind, and that I wouldn’t be capable of learning the choreography on time.
I already loved it before I even got to the practice. The closer we got, the more nervous I got. My anxiety was running through the building and all I could think about was how the other girls were going to act. I didn’t have that much experience besides what I already knew and they probably new
Virginia Tech The Virginia Tech football team’s entrance is more about ramping up the crowd than it is about a tradition. For starters a marching band plays (like at most college football games) and there’s a bunch of cheers that make their way through the screaming crowd. Next Metallica’s Enter Sandman starts to play, amping up the crowd even more and causing some of the band to jump. Finally the team runs out after the crowd has been amped up sufficiently.

As the summer nears its end, band kids everywhere prepare for the hectic nature of marching band. We all begin to dread the coming of band camp, but long for the passion and livelihood of the approaching marching season. Band has its ups and downs; however, the benefits it leaves us with are immeasurable. For instance, a benefit of joining band is the beautiful and irreplaceable experiences someone will get to partake in. However, one of the band’s most feared experiences is marching camp.
I was good at throwing in practice. I was excited to see who went to tryouts to see how the team would work out together. The coach didn’t let me start but had let me play in the game later on in the quarter. I did the plays and wanted to prove I should be on the team they passed me the ball because I was open. I took the shot and made a touchdown.
“Fhweeoooo! Halftime” , yelled the referee.Coming back from the field I knew that we were about to get a mouthful of yelling from Coach Vernon. Starting the game 0-2 in a championship game was not pleasant. “ WHAT WERE YOU GUYS DOING ON THE FIELD” , he yelled viciously. “ I want to see everybody on the field hustling and playing the game of soccer seriously so that we can bring home the trophy”, he said.
The next day came and she tried to calm her nerves, but found it difficult. When she went to run barrels she could not quit being nervous and again had a horrible run. Her chances of winsome foresight making it were unpredictable, it would peddle a long shot, she had given up all hope. Then her friends and family talked to her compendium and made her feel mire better and she was ready to ride the next day. Ready to run the barrels she came to a ploy consensus with her parents that she was just to run for amusement, she came out and had a decent run, but still was not firm enough it to
From a young age I watched the cheerleaders at football games in incredible admiration. All of the girls- in their sleek uniforms with pompoms in colors representing their school- captured my attention. I longed to be in their shoes one day, and I looked up to them. The cheerleaders claimed the spot role model to me for the majority of my childhood. I never realized that years into the future I would fill their shoes, and carry the responsibility of being the person little girls looked up to.
For instance, many times in cheerleading I wanted to give up because I couldn’t understand or get the moves to a dance or cheer. When learning new cheers and dances for cheerleading tryouts I thought they were way too hard for me to learn and I wanted to give up; however, I realized that I really wanted to earn a spot on the team. I pushed myself to learn everything needed for tryouts and I gave my best during tryouts. Sometimes my family pushes me to my breaking point. Whenever something happens in your personal life you shouldn’t let it come between you and your family.
Red and Gold Throughout the week the anticipation builds, you can feel it in the air you breathe. Everyone is talking about the game that is coming up that weekend and predicting how the team will perform. That is what got me so excited for my first Iowa State football game. The day of the game was perfect for football the weather was fantastic the sun was peeking through the clouds, and the air had a little nip to it. Then we got to Ames and you could see the stadium it the distance.
