Personal Narrative My eighth grade year has barely started. I have never tried doing sports in school, so i figured i tried something new. So i joined flag football just to see how it is, I was nervous at first on how it was going to turn out, but after a while of practicing I was very comfortable with going everyday after school to practice. One day, the P.E. teacher announced, “Alright guys you’re all soon be going to High School, which means it will soon be time to apply for sports in High School.” This was exciting for me because after weeks of practicing flag football, I kind of felt like playing real football in high school.
One particular moment was when I scored my first ever touchdown for a league team. Then from then on out I grew to love the sport of football. When I was around nine years old my dad enrolled me into the Duck Creek Pop Warner Football league where for the first time, I would play for an actual organized team. I was so excited to begin to play actual football from my years of playing around with my friends throwing the ball around or watching the games with my dad. Growing up with my brother we would play football together on an awkward one against one game where I wasn’t allowed to tackle him because he was younger than me and my parents didn’t want him to be hurt.

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
Jeremy Maclin is no longer among the unemployed. The veteran wide receiver signed a two-year with the Baltimore Ravens, the team announced Monday. As NFL.com noted, the agreement comes after Maclin visited with the team Thursday following a meeting with the Bills earlier in the week. In addition to the Ravens and Bills, the Browns also were interested in possibly signing the 29-year-old after he was released by the Chiefs on June 2. And it appears there was one other.
When I was in high school, football was my primary after school activity. For at least fifteen weeks I would spend five days a week doing something with football. My senior year I started for a team that only lost one game in the regular season. Now that I look back at my time as a football player I can see very obvious stimuli for my growth as a player and a person. From the time I first started playing to the end, I wanted to get better, my brothers on the team pushed me and I had coaches that taught and pushed me.
Looking to see his most time on the field yet, Beasley is a 5-foot-8, 174-pound slot receiver coming into his fourth year with the Cowboys.

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
St. Louis Rams’ rookie running back Todd Gurley, the 10th overall pick of this year’s draft, is expected to miss the first few games of the new season to allow complete healing of his ACL injury suffered during his college stint at the University of Georgia in November last year. ESPN reported that the Rams head coach Jeff Fisher insisted that they are “in no rush” to utilize the 21-year-old back fielder on the field this upcoming season. The 57-year-old coach was adamant that Gurley will be given more time to recover from his setback so that he could return at his best when the right time comes. Fisher was also certain that he will not play his young and promising running back on Friday’s preseason opener against the Oakland Raiders. “He 's
Rewrite Ben Roethlisberger curious about the Steelers performance if they were to remain healthy Pittsburgh Steelers offensive last season finished in the second place in the NFL in terms of yards per play while they emerged fourth in scoring despite the power trio of Antonio Brown, Le’Veon Bell and Ben Roethlisberger never playing in the whole game together. What is extremely enthusiastic is the fact that Roethlisberger who is entering his thirteenth season as the Pittsburgh’s starting quarter –back told the USA TODAY after his team’s opening practice of training in the camp last week that he wondered what it would be like if everybody was there and everyone was in the field. If the team stays healthy and put to the end their performance
A letter from the U.S Army stating, “You, Tony Stiletto, have been drafted into the U.S Army to fight in World War II. You have two weeks from March 21st, 1944, to enlist into the U.S Army at your nearest enlistment office.” This was bad for Tony and the only way for him to avoid this was if he were to go to college, but that wasn’t going to happen because his family was poor. Two weeks later, Tony was faced with going to the enlistment
For the Tennessee Future Stars being an alternate is just a nice way of telling a young football player that they almost made the team, but was not good enough to make it. On the day of the try-out, I jumped out of bed at about 8:30 am and warmed up at my house, and was prepared to go try out for the team at Battle Ground
