Young Pedro’s immaturity is evident in his opinion of his birthday gift. “On his birthday, they gave Pedro a soccer ball. Pedro complained, because he wanted one made out of white leather with black patches, just like the ones the professionals use” (Mazer 95) Though his parents tried to fulfill his wish for a soccer ball, he was not satiated by the lower-quality version. Pedro, much like many other children his age, was too immature to be grateful that his parents tried to make him happy. Because of his immaturity, he could not realize that his family wasn’t in a position economically to purchase a high quality soccer ball for him, though they may have wanted to.
Many people think it is a hobby for me but it’s actually not it is a passion that I enjoying investing my life in. To begin with, soccer for me isn’t just a sport or a hobby, it’s a career! I have a passion for soccer and I plan to make a career out of it because I have invested ten of my years to soccer. Everyone around me from friends to family members think that I will not achieve that goal due to the fact that they say I don’t always finish what I start. My mother has been getting on to me because I spend most of the day in soccer field but truth be told she should appreciate that I’m not getting in any kinds of trouble with the law or messing with the wrong crowd.
I didn’t even know what it meant to be on the team. It wasn’t about skin color it was about running and making friends and beating personal records and trophies, and I had reverted my could-have-been perspective of being proud that I was a unique participant on the team to dreading it and being overly dramatic about things like race that don’t really matter. I could have been embracing myself and who I was mixed with my talents and just ran. Instead I was hiding in the bathroom at the time of my race to skip it and not regret it because I could have sworn peoples eyes were on me because I looked different than the other girls. I was running just like the other girls were and the fact that I have a minor difference with them meant absolutely nothing, especially if I was a great
It wasn’t as hot as the past few days but the sun was still shining down on the pavement. I could hear the sound of kids yelling around me, but I didn’t move because this was normal behavior for a group of fifty some eight year old kids. I was hunched over watching one of the kids score another goal, that made three so far, and tied the game with a score of three to three. The team I was rooting for was doing better than normal, as they normally are beat within minutes. I thought to myself, “ If I was going to play, I’d want to be on their team.” I sat up

My first broken bone was a lesson in disguise I learned never be so quick try to impress other’s and when playing sport with your friends just play for the fun of it don’t play to and expect to win. Ever since I broke my arm I started to take things a lot easier especially when playing sports everything is not a competition play fair and treat others how you want to be
This third value is the one of giving it my all in every facet that comes across my path. So in soccer I always give it my all, I never want to know how it feels to not try because I ask the question to myself “why would people not try, I would rather give it the very best I can.” An example of this in soccer can be for when I have an open shot at goal not trying to take a shot just because I’m afraid of missing the goal and everybody would be laughing at me. But with this value I would rather take the shot myself and risk everything I have into it even if I terribly shoot it over the net. So what this value means to me is that in whatever activity that I’m doing, I’m always going to apply this value of code of chivalry on whatever task is before
In order to success we forget about the negative such as injuries and hope It never happens during our career, We also give our attention the most to the positive aspects. Some players play the game with less injuries. Some others are the opposite even though they are really talented; injuries keep slowing them down during their whole career. Soccer is unique in comparison to other sports, as it is the only sport in which participants purposely use their head to hit the ball. A soccer player can be subjected to an average of 6–12 incidents of heading the ball per competitive game, where the ball reaches high velocities.
I want to be able to identify as something other than my athletic successes. I have played soccer since I was six years old. I have loved soccer more than anything, and thought that one day I would go professional. My junior year of high school, when USF contacted me and offered me a scholarship to their institution to play soccer, it was the best day of my life- or at least
