All I hear is the crowd roaring. And all the sudden i’m hit out of bounds for a gain of 48 yards. Half time hits as the score is Dallas 28 and Patriots 34. Coach starts talking about the game and how we need to make a comeback, but all I can think about is the expression on the defender's face. The anger and tense on his face was unbelievable.
“Presently the excitement grew more intense still as a swift runner could be seen approaching the palace courtyard at an astonishing speed, and wild shrieks of relief and joy went up as Pythias, breathless and exhausted, rushed head long through the crowd and flung himself into the arm of his beloved friend…” (Russell, 1232). In “Two Friends”, Morissot and Sauvage were caught by the German soldiers. They were forced to reveal the password. They would die if they did not reveal it; however, neither of them spoke. Then the officer grabbed one of the two friends aside, and he tried to get one of them to say the password.
The usual practices don't just involve sprints, but ladders and reflex drills along with sprints. Just when practice seemed to be over, the words “Eagles,” were shouted it would cut down the team’s happiness. Although the training throughout the season would be brutal, and cause a tremendous deal of pain, enduring all of it for the end goal is well worth all the
We ran up the stairs and out onto the field to warm up. During warmups Coach Dietrich cam up to me and said, “You nervous?” “Yeah,” I replied, as I was as nervous as I’d ever been. “That’s good, you should be” he said and returned to the sideline. After warm ups we went to the sideline for the National Anthem. Then, we ran to the middle of the of the field as the announcer called our names, and t “Lets go boys, ball out on three, one, two, three,” Shouted Caleb as loud as a megaphone (simile), once the team reached the center.
“YOU are so slow, why don’t you ask a bike for your mom?” he said “Do you want to thumb a lift ?” “No, thanks.” said the snail. Then the rabbit said: “Ha, ha. I used to race with many animals in this forest, such as monkey, dog, tiger and kitty etc. Of course I am always the winner, do you want to race with me?” “Yes, I will try .” said the snail. The rabbit said: “Do not be a coward or trying to run away, see you tomorrow.” All of the animals are excited, they wanted to see the farce.
For many kids their goal is to make it to the professional level of play, but the real goal for youth athletes should be to achieve lifelong physical activity and healthy competition. Most of these overuse and burnout injuries would not be happening if all of the coaches gave the proper training, playing time, and proper resting time. I have experienced overuse myself, from throwing repetitively in baseball. I did not go to the doctor or have anything diagnosed, but I could still tell something was wrong with my arm. I limited my throwing as much as possible, made sure I was throwing with the correct form, and iced it.
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. The bad thing is, is that I was bad at doing my work in school but the team needed me so bad the couches would sit me out for a quarter and then put me in for the whole game.
“ I want to see everybody on the field hustling and playing the game of soccer seriously so that we can bring home the trophy”, he said. “EVERYBODY ON THREE, 1 2 3 WARRIORS (everyone yelled). Coming off the sideline I felt that this game was going to be a devastating loss, but still had the gut feeling to play as hard as I could. FOOOH! Went the whistle as we started off passing the ball to each other.
And that truth is that you did everything that you could. There wasn’t one more thing you couldn’t done. And you lived in that moment with clear eyes, and love and joy in your heart. If you could do that, then you are perfect.” - Coach
I had to get my mind right that whole weekend because I knew it was going to be a big game for me. I just have to go out there and “Ball out.” People doubted me and said I couldn 't guard number 3 so I watch pros and trained myself because I knew he was a good receiver. When people doubt me I get mad and try my best to prove them wrong. At the end of the game we came through and won. One of the best games I 've ever had in my life.
As I ran across the finish line for the last time I could not help but smile; all the memories and lessons learned from my years on cross country and track flashed before my eyes. Salem Cross Country and Track has impacted and shaped me into a leader, friend, daughter, and student. The competition and friendship I found on the cross country and track team is amazing and has aided me in personal growth. The challenge of running is something that I have learned to cherish the most during my years as a high schooler as it taught me to always work hard. Nothing is ever given to you in life and if you want to achieve your goals, you must challenge yourself past your limits.
Without the group chat everyone may miss out on events, for example the track coach might cancel practice and some people on the track team may not be aware, so we post it in the group chat with everybody’s number in it too get that message around. We also send inspirational messages on days of the track meet too keep everyone focused. When we have breaks we usually don’t have practice over those breaks, we use the group chat too remind each other to eat healthy and stay in shape over the break. Communication is very important when you’re on any kind of team. When you communicate with your coach it helps your performance on and off the track.
Vincent started getting nervous. Vincent told himself,”they are not going to bite me.” Vincent looked around,when Vincent blasted to the ball. Vincent was running as fast as he could. One dog broke out which made the other dogs break out. All of the dogs ran at Vincent which made him scared.
As the race starts, Squeaky looks over to her brother who was running on the sidelines. He was running in a unique style with his palms tucked behind his back and Squeaky sees that Raymond has the potential to be a good runner. “And I’m smiling to beat the band ‘cause if I’ve lost this race, or if me and Gretchen tied, or even if I’ve won, I can always retire as a runner and begin a whole new career as a coach with Raymond as my champion” (Bambara 40). This shows that for the first time Squeaky shifts away from her own goals and focuses on those of Raymond’s. She realizes that Raymond could be a challenger and Squeaky vows to help him in his personal race.
