and I 'm also a second string strong side linebacker it was our last game of the season,so we really wanted to go out on the win or a record for the season was one way in five losses and one tie,we hadn 't had a great season so we especially wanted to go out on a win. We got the ball first on kick off and we made a touchdown on the first few drives. On
When I was 7 years old I went to my first high school game with my mom, the teams that played were Roosevelt and Flower. I will never forget that day Sept 8th at 8PM friday night lights. My older cousin Brett Pierce was the starting Cornerback for flowers, I admired him because he the starting Corner and he was ranked #23 in the Nation for his position. My cousin ended the game with 18 tackles, 4 interceptions, and 3 forced fumbles that was one of the greatest days of my life. After the game was over I asked my mom could she sign me up to play football, she told me I wasn’t big enough. My mother is very over protective of me since I am her only son.
Then all of a sudden my coach said “Roger,Go in as Running back hurry!!!” I was terrified. I looked up when I was in my spot lining up I see the defense boy were they scary I hear the crowds roaring. I was shaking. Then all of a sudden i hear “HIKE!!!”
When it went in I turned around and looked at coach and he gave me the same nod he gave me before the game. We ended up winning that game and coach told me that he could see me getting better already. I had this nervous but happy feeling in my body. I was nervous that I still wasn’t quite good enough to make the team and I was happy that i’ve gotten better and coach realized that.
Ever since I was a toddler, I loved sports. Baseball, basketball, it did not matter; I just liked to run. When I was around 4 or 5, I was in the living room watching the Steelers play the Cardinals and saw Santonio Holmes grab a game winning touchdown to win the Superbowl. I was so excited that I jumped up in the air and I told my dad, “Daddy when I grow up I want to play football and I want to score a lot of touchdowns just like 10 does.”
“If what you did yesterday seems big, you haven’t done anything today.” – Lou Holtz. This has always been my mindset from when I was in little league until now. Although, I have faced some adversity along the way, this quote always pushes me to do better and better each and every day.
Then we went and ran over how to tackle low since I was on defense this game not on offense where I would be a running back. But after that me and some of my friends were in a little group and we said that we might lose but we have a little chance of winning. It finally came to the start of the game
I was very nervous and so was the rest of the team. In week one against an opponent that rolled us the year before, we came out and beat them in a blowout half time game. This was to many players’ surprise. We knew that was going to be our hardest game of the regular season and we felt very confident no one was going to beat us now, at least in the regular season. The season continued and it consisted of all half time blowout games.
During the first five minutes of the 2nd half, we scored a goal. Also, the game was very physical people were getting shoved to the ground and kicked. But during the game the ball bounced off the side and almost was a goal for the other team but we saved it and before we saved it my team and I all screamed,” Go to the ball and get the ball out of the box” After, we played a Cincinnati United team at 3:15 at the end of the game the score was 5-1
At 4:00 p.m., the ref was going to start the game and at first, it was 7 vs. 11 for the first three minutes until more players from our team showed up. I could tell by looking at the coach that he was disappointed with the team. It was close to halftime and they were winning 2-0. Throughout the last ten minutes of the half, I was pressuring the other team.
I was put in the most important spot, and as a freshmen it made me very nervous. We had been preparing for it by practicing it in practice everyday. I was very concerned on my capability to do my job and recover them. Finally it was game time and I was ready. I ended up recovering two onside kicks and closed the game on the final kickoff.
With my speed I started dashing on the edge of the field all the way to side of the goal. I quickly evaded the defender and in the distance I heard “ Cross the Ball” said Player Number 1 . With all the force I possessed in me, I punted the ball to my teammate and with his strength he leaped to head the ball into the goal and scored the first goal! Everybody was celebrating, but we still knew that this wasn 't the end.
On the morning of Super Bowl 49, I was playing on my Xbox One with Ben Jernejcic when he suddenly asked me whether I wanted to go to his house to watch the Super Bowl. It was an opportunity I could not pass up, so our parents arranged at time me to go to his house. Hours later I arrived at his house, waiting for the fun to begin.
We received the kick with me in the back field I caught the ball as a fair catch because I didn't have anyone to block. Brady wise was or Quarterback The first play was a 7 yard post to Nate Rob it was tipped and picked off by their safety. Luckily Jerome Sedillio was there to make the tackle. Brady and Nate are at the corner position with Jerome at safety. The offense is lined up at there 10.
Our first two drives we scored and they did too so it was 14-12. We was up we was yelling as we got ready to kickoff i sprint down the field and hit the ball carrier, we both slid on the 30 yard on line and i got a turf burn and turf in my mouth it tasted like sour rubber. I looked up as the guys face was all red from embarrassment we went off the field. Our offense scored on the first play of the drive and we got the 2 point conversion, so the score was 22-12 we was up.
