Looking back, it was my team’s work ethic that caused us to win the game. For weeks and months we had been practicing extra, working our hardest in practices. I gave up free time after school, on the weekends to try to be successful. I had such a hard shot because of all the work I had been doing. Hard work does pay off, and hard work wins
I was standing on the side of the court shouting at the Illinois players to say hi because when I was little I looked up to all of them because I wanted to be just like them when I got
We were playing in Ankeny in a 1-day tournament, so we had 3 games total. It was important that we played our best in the first 2 games so we would be able to play in the championship game. My team was lucky and got one of the later games so we played at 11:30 and had to be at the fields at
The years of practice and determination came down to this moment. August 17th, 2014. First day of pre-season and the nerves were on high. I tried to be the best in every drill we had. Always perfect each movement like I was in a game.
Entering my first high school track and field season was so exciting--it was the start of my discus career where I could actually compete amongst other talented throwers in a span of many more meets. I felt confident since I had always been advanced in my years of throwing since I started at around the age of 9. Learning from an experienced and intelligent coach, I felt there was no way I could not succeed, but then a problem arose. The man who had been coaching me for almost five years could no longer work for the track and field team. I continued to work with him on my own when he was available, however, it appeared that other teammates were suffering due to the lack of guidance and critique.
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
He put all of his thought and time into the single biggest race in his life, the finals of the 100-meter dash. (Nuwer). Applause for Jesse erupted when the officials concurred that his 10.3 time had tied the world and Olympic records. (Nuwer). Hitler was very disrespectful to America, specifically the African-Americans.
Soccer is my life. Every weekend we travel all over Indiana and Ohio. But One Saturday morning my soccer team, my family, and I got up early for a soccer tournament in Ohio. The first game we played was a team called the Celtics at 8:30. The score was 1-0 we won.
This hard work eventually paid off for Armstrong as he was then recruited to the national professional Motorola Cycling Team. After receiving the title of a professional athlete,
I went up and high fived my teammates. I got put out for a couple of minutes to cool down. While I was put out I spent a couple minutes trying to get back in the game, but the rest of the time of the game I spent clapping and cheering on my team. A couple of painful minutes later the game ended and we had won. I high fived my teammates and the other team.
Win Win!”. And there goes the whistle starting our game. We bumped, pushed, and tried to be the first ones to the ball. 25 minutes into our game we scored into the big, white goal hitting
I was extremely excited to be captain because of my love for the sport and for my amazing team, especially because it was going to be my last year competing. My school has still not won a City Championship, but my team and I wanted to change that this year. We all pushed ourselves to the limit, and we worked harder than ever before. On the day of our City Championship meet, we cheered each other on and we put on our best performance.
Me and my friend Patrick had been so tired from all the training from track practice and were absolutely stoked for our next track meet. Everything had been great until I got some devastating news from my parents. It was that day, that day I was sadly informed that I would not be able to make it to my esteemed track meet due to a business trip my parents were attending. My parents
Recently I committed to Allen Community College to continue my soccer career. Having done this all my hard work has payed off. A few months ago I was questioning if I even wanted to continue playing after high school season ended but Allen definitely changed that for me. This is one of my biggest achievement because soccer has always had such a positive impact on my life. Being able to say that I got offered a scholarship to continue playing has had a huge impacts on me as a person.
