By the end of the first quarter we were losing 32-0. Imagine how embarrassing that is. Coach Zaugg also had similar traits, taking starters out and letting the game get out of control or calling timeouts at times that literally cost the game. When we played Storm Lake he called a timeout and drew up a play for us to run to win the game. We ended up running that play and I had an open shot and made it to win the game; it turns out he called timeout again before it went it and it did not count.
A scene that accurately represents my theme is when the football team was at football camp before the season had started and the coaches felt that the team was not working together and practicing well enough so Coach Boone, the head coach, decides that until they start practicing better, they will be practicing three times every day until he feels that the team is working to the level they need to be. So one day after the third practice of the day team captain
Linemen, on a football team, are great examples of this because the quarterback, running backs, and wide receivers get all the credit for great plays and touchdowns, while linemen have to block the three-hundred-pound man in front of them every time, or the play will get blown up. Team players don’t do things for themselves, they do it for the benefit of the team. In a team player’s mind, the betterment of the team must come first. No matter who scores a touchdown, goal, basket, or run, a team player has to let go of all individualism and do the right thing for the whole team. In soccer, if a teammate gets open down field and you have an opponent in front of you, a team player would pass it to their open teammate, while an individualist would attempt and juke out the opponent or try and show off and possibly lose the ball.
To me football is like a second family (simile. When freshmen football lifting started I decided that was going to work as hard as I could to be my best. So, that is what I did all school year and all summer I put a ton of effort into becoming the best football play I could be. One of the most important experiences of my life was my starting in my first varsity football game, it taught me that hard work always pays off, and changed the way that I look at life.
This guy has been determined and destined to prove people wrong every single day. People, sports critics especially, didn’t think he would ever make it in college football, but he did. He broke almost all records possible for a college football and a college quarterback, he is up there with one of the greats, Herschel Walker. They also said he wouldn’t make it into the NFL because of the way he threw and because he wasn’t a pocket passer and that he was the first left-handed quarterback since Michael Vick and Steve Young. It was a crazy sight to see, I have never seen a guy work so hard in my entire life to pursue a dream he has had for a long time.
MY MEMOIR ROUGH DRAFT It was a cold morning on Saturday October,2,2013 and this football game was in Manchester, Michigan. This game was really important, because our football team was playing a team that we almost beat last time which i wanted to win. but that game made us be 0-4. And we were playing a undefeated team, the buccaneers and I was looking for a win because in school People would say that “we suck” or “you never was going to win”, it would all come back to my mind on this day but in my head i told myself “that this would be a close game but we would win.So while our team was warming up i told our team ‘that we will win we to stay confintent in the late in the game and play to win’. In that brief second everyone felted and looked like they wanted to win as much as i did and then so we ran out to our spots to start on offence.
I can still remember the day that it happened vividly. It was our last varsity game, against one of our biggest rivals, who were also one of the best in Michigan. As we entered the field, a thunderstorm with heavy lightning was brewing on the horizon, causing everyone to take cover. After an excruciatingly long hour, the storm passed and we were allowed back on the field. The refs then said we have ten minutes to warm up; we usually had thirty.
The whistle screeches and everyone is off; trying to gain the prized possession: the football. It 's a battle of skill, tricks, teamwork and daring. It’s only five minutes in and the other team has the ball. The other team are passing it around us, weaving in and out, heading right for our goal preparing to strike. We only have a matter of seconds to regroup before we are down 0-1.
Michael Oher had an amazing career. First, he was homeless and now he became such a wonderful offensive tackle in the National Football League (NFL). “I would have dreams all the time about me playing in the NFL. Every day I woke up, I said to myself.. I'm going to work hard.. to get to that next level.” (“Michael Oher
The quarterback can lead his team to victory only if the linemen block, the receivers catch his passes, and the running backs help the offence establish a balanced attack of running and passing. Even if the quarterback plays an outstanding game, the team can still lose if the defence gives up too
