I scampered across the field and snatched the ball as I ran into the netting that had been left from batting practice. I untangled myself and made the winning throw. Even though I had been down all night, a competition allowed me to refocus and harness my skills and allow me to reach a level I would have never gotten to without it. Competition makes people better and allows them to reach heights never thought possible, and heights that would never be reached if they were not forced to push themselves to be their best
Henry practiced the hardest of all, always asking for one more chance to perfect his serve or to successfully spike the ball over the net. Throughout that time, he was constantly doing and learning. Even when he failed, he picked himself up and pushed forward. Because of the progress he was making, Henry was incredibly motivated, and his energy helped his teammates stay energized as well. The match against Ocean View ended up in Honolulu 's loss, but since everyone had done their best, and it wasn 't a real match, nobody was truly upset.
My hands wouldn’t keep still, every time I wiped the sweat off them, it would be replaced within seconds it seemed. I was scared if you listened close enough, you could hear the pounding of my heart threatening to burst out my chest. But who can’t keep calm when it’s their first game? We were all nervous, families, and friends came to watch us start the season off. We were playing with only a few mistakes that night, and we worked together as a team, as a result we won our first game.
Another bad snap caused Jones to take a 15-yard loss, after he was tackeld by Terrell Harris . Harris used speed and hustle to again make a big play for the Falcons. #6 De 'monte Reese would have to nice runs to close out the half The first was 6-yard run to move the chains, on a third and four call. The other was a 13-yard gain, where he ran hard showing more of his williness to use grit to make a play. With 7:59 left in the third quarter, Willams hooked up with, Freeman for a 9-yard gain.
As I had anticipated, those were some of the longest and most difficult weeks for me to endure. I could not have imagined anything could be worse than not being allowed to play for 6 weeks, but 2 weeks into my recovery, I received an invitation to try out for the soccer Olympic Development Program (ODP). Being invited to try out as an 11 year old was an honor, especially since I was the only player from my team to get invited. I was so ecstatic and frankly surprised, but then reality hit me hard. Considering my situation, how would I be able to play soccer with a cast on my arm after not having even touched a soccer ball for so long?
Even today I remember the sound of my ribs cracking, it was the sound of a tree branch that was just stepped on. It was the worst pain I 've ever felt. I got up and managed to finish the rest of the game due to the adrenaline I had. Not only till after the game is when I really felt the pain my ribs was causing. We didn 't win the game but still successfully reach our objective that we had worked three years to get to.
It was the second half and I wanted to score a goal. 5 people were kicking the ball all at the same time. Suddenly, the ball bounced out of the crowd of people. Coincidentally, they didn’t notice when it went to me and I kicked the ball. Sweat was pouring down my face as I hit the ball and resulted in the fact that I made an amazing goal with absolutely no angle.
Conversely, he was not distraught as we were; he used the red card as motivation to win the game. He expressed adamantly, “Listen, we’re down a man, but let’s not hang our heads. Let’s beat this team with ten and give all of our effort. If the result isn’t what we wanted, and we worked as hard as we could, then there is nothing to be ashamed about.” His sense of pride and desire and struck all ten players like a lightning bolt. As the half started, we came out of the huddle a different team.
He lived in a good neighborhood and played basketball with older kids on playgrounds. He attended Overbrook High School and that’s when he developed a term which he called a “deep love for basketball”, and it is very well true. In the three seasons he played basketball in high school, Wilt scored over 2,200 points. Wilt worked hard on becoming a good basketball player and at an early age he became a very great basketball player. Wilt played outstanding in high school, which led to over 200 universities recruiting him.
Every single Newberg player was ready to counter attack when we made a mistake. Their defense made us look silly with their outstanding ability to steal the ball. There was no silver lining to that game other than that we couldn’t get worse. Thirteen hours after the horrendous loss, our team had practice. We went grudgingly through our warm ups without any source of purpose.
Other teams, parents and coaches gathered around to watch this “David and Goliath” match. The first two sets blew right by us and we won it with ease. Now, all we had to do was play the third and final set and were going home champions. Something, however; shifted in the other team, as we started to realize that they wanted to win just as badly as we did. It took us by shock how much they improved their skills by one game, and before we knew it we lost the third set.
We were all worried that the team that had been disqualified during my freshman year was going to win. They were by far our biggest competition, but we didn 't let that stop us. In the end it paid off and we won our first every city title by just a mere two-tenths of a point. It was such an amazing moment and most of my team, including myself, were in tears. It was so rewarding to be apart of the team that finally won our school and city championship, and we followed the rules to
Tom Brady and the Patriots offense is literally the best in the league and it shows. They have played a number of great teams and have scored huge against them. These two teams both are so similar in numbers and ability to win games, it almost seems like it would be both teams destinies to face off in the Super Bowl. If these two teams faced off in the Super Bowl both going 16 – 0 would make this match up even more
It was the week before we vs Franklin in our championship game and this was actually my first time playing for an actual championship and they had so many different rules then city volleyball it was a bit hard to learn and remember all the rules but I got it down pretty well after a few games and practices. We actually won all of our games except 3 to make it to the championship game. I loved my teammates, they all worked really hard to call the ball and help each other out through stuff all of our practices went well and everything but it kinda sucked because even before the championship, we lost against Franklin twice so we were pretty nervous to hear that they won and we were going to be versing them. My coach kept saying, “Bella
He won the second game. This put him up 2-1, so we both needed two more games to win. The next rack he broke and made nothing then I ran the rack out. Then I broke and missed after making two balls. He ran out to one ball and then scratched, giving me ball in hand.
