¨All i ever wanted to do was hit people, is that so bad? Does that make me a bad guy?¨ (Lynch 1). Arlo disagrees that it makes him a bad person, but he agrees that Lloyd needs to change the way he plays football. At football practice the next day the football coach called Lloyd a career jay-vee player, and Lloyd took it too seriously and shortly after Lloyd quit the football for good.. Arlo still loved football so he kept playing and practicing, and he made the jayvee team as a freshman.
This is another very important thing I learned going through my freshman year because when Friday night lights came around everything seemed to cause butterflies in my stomach causing me to be afraid to ask or say anything but I thought to myself and I asked myself “if I want to get on the field I have to ask questions” so when that happened I started to gain confidence and that helped me get on the field. The last thing about learning the fundamentals about football is to always stay
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.
When I was younger I was a great football player. Everyone knew who I was because I was so fast and quick. It was like I was a god how everyone was calling my name as soon as I got in the gate. I was so good that even the other teams knew who I was not saying they liked me but they know what I’m made of.
Now people can say well if the NFL cared about the players and their right to be safe then why put the NFL GameDay Concussion Protocol into effect in 2009 when it started to be a big time problem in 2004. Well people do not know that the organization was trying to help but they were trying to fix it with small changes rather then big time changes due to the risk of viewer
Football is more than a sport, it is something that is a significant artifact to myself as well as my family. My father and mother were raised on the earlier stages of football. Just as I was, these two grew up watching football every weekend with there own family. My father and grandfather were the only ones in his family that enjoyed watching football.
The great Vince Lombardi once said “Football is like life – it requires perseverance, self-denial, hard work, sacrifice, dedication, and respect of authority.” My father introduced me to football and coached me from a young age. He taught me lessons about life that I could only learn from the sport. Football turned me into the man I am today, from facing ridicule from the public and slander online, to having to the fill the most important spot on the field, I prevailed and thrived. Through football I learned to compete, discipline, accountability, sacrifice, and my life was impacted more than I ever knew.
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
I tried out for the football team and i made it and i got on the A team. The problem was that everyone thought that i would be on the B team so I started to feel bad. Everyone was thinking that I would do really bad at our first game. I was nervous but I was also ready to play.
Football, soccer, and track were what were what took up most of my time until I had a big injury. Which made me forget about playing sports for a whole year. During this time, I looked for ways to stay busy. I came upon this special opportunity to work with wild rescued animals, At least that’s what the lady I
Growing up school was never my forte, but I was always taught to be a student-athlete, not just an athlete. And it never made since to me until I got into my junior year in high school when I had to miss football games due to my grades. I always tell myself to live and abide by these quotes, which are: “Those to the left and right of you are who you will most likely to become, so surround yourself around those of the same goals and interest as yourself”. “Success is what you make it”. “You are not finished when you lose, you are only finished when you quit”.
This was my first time playing tackle football and I learned a lot about myself and the game of football. The first day was a sign to me of how much harder tackle is compared to flag. I knew tackle would be harder but I didn’t think it would be this hard. I thought about quitting after the first day but said I would go the rest of the week then decide.
Arian used this as motivation and still today to remind himself he can prove the doubters wrong. Secondly, Arian’s high school coached doubted him because of his size.

So when the first day of the season came, I went to the first practice. After the first I wanted to quit. My whole entire body was sore and I was exhausted. I stuck it out and realized that the sport isn 't bad at all. So next season I really tried hard and became Toll Gate High School 's first Division
I elected to choose this article on concussions because of my interest in football and more importantly sports. Over the last five years, the sport of football has been tarnished to an extent because of the amount of concussions and the side effects shown in former professional players. I grew up playing football and learned many life lessons from it, and to see the media destroy the reputation of the sport hurts. I personally wanted to see in-depth details on the subject, so this article helps me better understand the topic. I am hoping to one day work in sports, and working in football is my dream.
