Although, I have faced some adversity along the way, this quote always pushes me to do better and better each and every day.

I was starting cornerback, andwe won a championship. And I just went to Tennessee for a football tournament with kids that were a grade above me. Everything was going so well for me, but the one thing I was missing was a touchdown. That was the one thing I needed in order for me to say to my 10 year old weird self “I am one of the greatest football players at my age.” Now at that time I was starting cornerback on defense, but on
When children play the sport, it changes their viewpoint to a different set of mind. According to Youth Activities a sport article states, “ Life is about competition- whether it is playing a football not, but the sport will toughen them up and let them know to compete for what they want to achieve”(Youth Activities). In life, not everything is easy. Life is nothing but competition and people are always competing with each other.

(acient) I have wanted to become a coach for a very long time specifically a football coach. My entire life has revolved around football watching it, talking about it, and even playing it.

My favorite part about being in middle school was being allowed to play sports for the school. Going from youth sports to school sports was an enormous change. The players were bigger, faster, and stronger. Also, practice was much more difficult with stricter coaches and tougher drills. My first year of junior varsity football was terrifying.
I loved all sports, especially baseball. But, like most athletic minded thirteen-year-olds, my main interests were football, basketball, and baseball. I had no idea what cross country was other than what the name sounded like. I had this mental image that all you did was run around the countryside. Football was a lot more glamorous.
4th grade was the year when it was my chance to play just like my dad. I signed up for full-contact football, which requires all pads worn during the very physical game. As a 4th grader, this was more than I expected; needless to say, the first practice was very rough. My coaches were constantly roaring at us with the expectation that we already knew how to play. They didn’t take into consideration that for some of us, including
This Greek word connect to me because I am very athletic. I spend the last four years in high school playing different sports and keep my body in great condition.

It wasa real long time ago I could not remember much but I do remember all of theexcitement and the yelling and at times the crying that feeling of some sort ofdepression when your team loses the play, the ball gets intercepted or fumbledand even losing the game. But on the other hand you have the feeling of victorythe feeling of your team getting the ball or picks it up after the fumble and thesense of relief if it was your own team who fumbled it. My favorite feeling is thefeeling of revenge or a touchdown that wins the game. When I was about 10 Istated to noticed a team that began to stand out and with that team I havebecome to realize that one of my favorite if not
I have had grit within me for as long as i 've known. I am always willing to try challenging things and never am one to give up without a fight. Like when I was in the eighth grade. I was 13 and had been working hard lifting weights and pushing myself in hard football practices trying to prepare for the season. Then finally it was time for our first game.

Football is obviously an integral part of our nation’s identity. It’s the one sport that absolutely dominates the weekend, whether it be college football on Saturday, or professional on Sunday. However in some places in this country, the game of football is all that a community has. Award winning journalist and author H.G. Bissinger described in great detail such a community in his 1990 non-fiction book “Friday Night Lights.” Throughout the entirety of the book, we learned about what life was life in Odessa, Texas during the 1980’s.
From coming from a humble family and at a school that hated African American people to being a football star and being inducted into the senior bowl hall of fame with many other greats such as Curtis Martin and Michael Strahan.
