I was beaming as we ran over to the sidelines and shook the other team’s hand, wished the good luck, and congratulated them on making it this far. 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.
So he said “tomorrow all games have been cancelled because of snow but I would love for you to come back and play with us.” so I said I would love to come back and play with the team coach thank you so much for giving me this opportunity. After I finished talking to him everyone came up to me and said “see you in a few months Ricky, Don’t party too much in college.” They all just seemed like they really wanted me there. So from the moment I got there everyone had a great and happy mood. Nobody though they were better than the other and they all treat each other with respect. So I really enjoyed being around the whole team for a week and get to observe them and the way they
After we got settled in we went upstairs hoping, to see some of the players and get stuff signed by them. Shaun Suisham, The Steelers former kicker until he tore his ACL, was there. When I saw him, my mind was in another world it was the best feeling ever. Both my sister and I have steeler hats signed by him. That day was the best day ever, that is until we get to go
We would get on the bus and there would just be an aroma of smells and feelings that is really indescribable. But the shed was our place. My junior year after we lost in the playoffs we all went in there and cried and for the first time it wasn't the happiest place on earth anymore. At that exact moment it was to us the saddest place. But to me I was sad we lost but I still had another year to play so I wasn't that sad.
Katie and Lexie said, “Good job, that was an awesome hit, Nat!” At the end of the game, the score was 3-1 so we had won. The whole team was so excited because we had gotten 1st! We lined up on the foul lines so we could receive our medals. The medals said 1st place on them with blue ribbons. The parents were all on the field taking pictures and congratulating
I high fived my teammates and the other team. Afterwards we took team photos, talked, and hugged for the last time as a team. It was sad but we were all pretty happy with ourselves for winning though. Couple months later, I 'm standing up before a bleacher full of parents smiling at their graduating 8th graders. I stood awkwardly as the teacher said my name and awards.
We thanked him for the tickets and for getting us into the locker room after the game. As soon as he had to go back with his team into the locker room before the game he gave me his head band he was wearing and gave me his signature on it. It was a dream come true, I was so excited and texted all my friends right away to tell them the great news. When Dee Brown and the team came back out of the locker room for the game they did their normal warmup and started the game with a jump ball. While watching the game there were so many cool things about it.
During the first five minutes of the 2nd half, we scored a goal.Also, the game was very physical people were getting shoved to the ground and kicked. But during the game the ball bounced off the side and almost was a goal for the other team but we saved it and before we saved it my team and I all screamed,” Go to the ball and get the ball out of the box” After, we played a Cincinnati United team at 3:15 at the end of the game the score was 5-1 Right, when we
When we got there I signed in and got my wristband on. I sat down I told my mom “mom I’m nervous.” and she said “it will be ok.” Then I had to go to the bathroom when I got out she called me in it was a man and he asked “ what’s wrong.” my mom said”his growth plate in his right foot is broken he broke it last year and it is bothering him again.” Then he analyzed it and pushed places around my foot. Then he took me to a dim lit room where I will get an X-Ray then they took the wrong foot so, I had to get another one then they came back after so LONG!! !
I hammered it with all my might and watched with growing excitement as it slowly rolled into the back of the net. 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
