When I found out that I had to libero for one of the biggest games of the season, I was dripping with drops of nerves. I never had a lot of experience playing on varsity and especially not the libero, because on B-squad I was the setter, which is two way different positions. I had two practices before it was game time, in both those practices I was shaking with fear that I would mess up and lose this opportunity. All the upperclassmen counted on me to do a good job, I was weighed down by all the pressure of everyone. I was expected to do just as good as the senior libero did in the past, I
Julia Young English 1010 Larson, P.3 Personal Narrative The professional boxer Muhammad Ali once said, “I hated every minute of training, but i said ‘Don’t quit. Suffer now and live the rest of your life a champion.’ ” This quote became relatable the moment I looked back on the start of my cheerleading “career”. My older sister Aarika cheered for Brighton while I was in 7th grade, she tried convincing me for months to join a team and finally I agreed. I wasn’t very excited, I wasn’t thrilled having to be thrown into something I didn’t know anything about, and I was absolutely terrified about being the “new girl” on the team. I remember that first practice, walking into the gym and being shaken by the loud blaring music and girls running around
6th grade football tryouts It was a humid day in the middle of August and football tryouts were tomorrow.It was 6th grade and I was really nervous,It wasn't because I had never played football ,I had played football for three years prior to that.I was nervous because it was my first time playing school football and I had just transferred schools because the school I was going to be nasty,wretched,and unkempt. When I got home from school my mom had gotten me a brand new white and black glossy chin guard and a juicy and sour lemon flavored mouthguard.My mom also gave me a talk when I told her I was nervous.She told me that I was a great athletic kid who could do anything he puts his mind to. I asked my mom to make a big breakfast for me and boy did she deliver.I woke up,got in the shower,got dressed with my favorite blue water
“For how long did she say I will get to stay there and when do I leave” I asked “She said she will need help for the whole summer so you will leave right away when school ends” answered mom That summer changed me into a better person. Before I got the exciting news about me babysitting I was always shy and did not talk much. But since I did not know anyone except my great aunt Maria, I was so scared and I honestly did not know what or who to expect. All I knew was that the couple had three kids; a one year old, a two year old, and a twelve year old. Since I did not know how they looked and I had only talked to Bob on the phone once, so I decided to look him up on
She joined a youth football league, when her stepfather asked her if she wanted to play football, as a joke. At first, when Rachel started playing, she was so nervous that her stomach hurt. But she got better and better, and eventually was able to join the football team in her school in seventh grade. For Rachel, being the only girl on the team was difficult. She was worried that her teammates wouldn’t accept her as
I was younger then, unsure of everything and constantly over analyzing my every move. I did not even know if I could trust my own thoughts, always cautious about what everyone else thought I was. Everywhere I looked I saw people with their entire lives put together like a puzzle, everything falling right into place without a care in the world. The day I was invited to volunteer at a camp was the day my life took a 180 turn, little did I know my life would never be the same again. Those next two weeks I would acquire the advice, support and stories I needed to change for the better.
“As the year passed, released from school thirty minutes before Jem, who had to stay until three o’clock, I ran by the Radley Place as fast as I could, not stopping until I reached the safety of our front porch.” (page 33) Scout was afraid of Boo, because she grew up hearing all of the terrible rumors about him. Jem, Scout, and Dill also play taunting games involving Boo. Scout explains that Jem made up a game called “Boo Radley.” This game was meant to prove the bravery of someone. They would play out Boo Radley’s life, and as the summer went on, their game became more complex, and so did their imaginations. When the Tom Robinson trial is going on, Jem and Scout decide to sneak in and see what all of the town fuss was about.
This opposition adds tension to the story. The fact that Izzy’s mother is going to Costa Rica without her consent makes her upset. The mother plans to send Izzy away with her grandma for the time she will be gone. While Izzy is furious about the decision that has been made, the mother does not think it is bad at all. In the text Izzy says “ … what am I going to do for two whole months with someone I haven't seen since I was six?...

Four years ago I never thought that basketball would come to an end. During my freshman year I thought that high school was endless, and senior year seemed like a distant future. Last Wednesday brought me back into reality, and showed me that the end is near. It was the District Semi-Final game, and of course we had to play McBain for the third time this season. That day we had an overall good feeling about the game, but there was also this nagging sensation that volleyball may repeat itself.
Retired football player, Lou Holtz, once said, “How you respond to the challenge in the second half will determine what you become after the game, whether you are a winner or a loser.” Metaphorically speaking, Cameron Lane Seawright’s life experienced two extremely contrasting halves. The first half was spent adoring her all-American, like everyone else in Messina. Everyone wanted what Cameron had, Neely Crenshaw- the star football player, especially Screamer (Grisham 183). The second half was ultimately spent heartbroken and determined to alter her path and move on. Cameron’s achievements throughout the continuation of her life made it obvious that she, in fact, won.
North Andrew hadn’t been to a state championship game since the early 90’s. This isn’t acceptable in a small football town like mine. Everyone knew something had to change. It wasn’t until my sophomore year in 2012 that we finally made it back to a state championship. We had a new coach that year and a lot of talent.
