“It’s good sportsmanship”, my dad said. After, we ran to the stand that had our trophies on it. I walked up to my dad with pride and excitement as he handed me the first trophy I ever owned. I began to think about how he has always been there supporting me, helping me grow on and off the field, and telling me that not everything goes the way people want it to in life and they have to accept that. I was 5 years old, and it was my first year playing soccer or any sport at all.
The last straw occurred when our goalie attempted to block another close goal by our opponents, but got him a sprained ankle in return. Unfortunately, officials determined he had to sit out for the rest of the game. His role in the game was crucial to our win. And with a wave, our goalie left us to perish with 10 minutes left; also, our opponents started with the ball to resume the game. Helpless and battered, exposed to a missile barrage of exhaustion, none of us could take this agony anymore.
Pelé was the best soccer player of all time according to Henry Kissinger’s book “100 Leaders Person of the Century.” ”He dominated soccer for two decades with passion matched only by his world wide gallery of fans.” He started playing soccer at a very young age and was soon discovered and started playing professionally. At this point the directors of the professional team said ”This Boy will be the greatest soccer player in the world.” Pelé was born on October 23,1940 in Tres Corações in the Brazilian City of Bauru,Minas Gerais. When Pelé was growing up his family was too poor to afford a real soccer ball, so he would use an old orange or grapefruit, sometimes he would even use a sock stuffed with old newspaper. His family could not even afford a pair of shoes for him to play in. Pelé was discovered at age 11 and four years he started playing on a
Practice was one thing, but during games the eyes of coaches and parents were locked in on the only African American in the league. My first game was what I would call a beautiful disaster. I arrived at my first game and felt the pressure of what seemed like 100 eyes watch me . I stood out, I was not the same color as my teammates nor was I as experienced as them. This was the beginning of my journey and how I came to love soccer.

I play soccer for the Oakridge Soccer Club. I have been playing soccer since I was five years of age. When I first started playing Soccer I had a coach who used to go by the motto “every shot u miss, is a miss towards life.” Soccer is one of the two only sports I play and when I’m on the field I feel confident in myself because, if you show courage and confidence you will achieve your goal in life and even though my goal may not be to make goal for soccer my goal is to become a Soccer leader. I want to be a captain who talks to the referees during a game when our team has a problem, concern, or question. In other words, I believe soccer has changed my life and became an ongoing achievement in my life, that will forever stay in my heart forever.
In this show Friday Night Lights, the quarterback, Jason Street, was in the middle of one of the most important high school football game of his life. He made a mistake by reading the defense incorrectly, making him throw an interception. With all the pressure his coaches put on him and his frustration, he ran up to the defender, without being taught the correct tackling technique, and broke his neck just to be paralyzed for the rest of his life. His family could not afford to pay for all the medical bills, so they did what they had to do. They sued the coach for not teaching him how to tackle because the coaches got too caught up in the years before when they won championships, feeling like winning was their only responsibility in the city of Dillon,
I once took a risk when I played soccer. I interested in soccer when I was young and I tried to improve my skill soccer. When I played soccer with my friends after school at the soccer field near my school. I wanted to play as a goalkeeper then a few minutes I tried to save a ball by jumping into it. After that jumped I did not see goal post at right side of me until my head got hit by it then I passed out and I woke up at hospital.
Soccer had helped me break out of my shell socially and provided an outlet for stress relief. My life revolved around soccer. However, in the spring of freshman year I was burning out. I had finished the fall season of high school, winter league was over and I was trying to balance spring club soccer with high school track. Without a break and feeling overwhelmed, I grew disinterested in soccer as it became a stressful environment for me as the older girls had to join our team and I was no longer seeing the field a lot.
I was constantly with my best friend during the last three days that was leading up to the moment. His name was Daniel, we have known each other since kindergarten, and he was a big asset to the team. Daniel would always say, “Edgar, I know how much this game mean to you, but no matter if we win or lose, I’ll know that you would’ve given it your all”. I was inspired by his statements because he was always that motivational friend. The end of the school day came upon us and we both headed down to the field for training.
John and me carry him to the ambulance they had to take him to the hospital, it turns out he broke his femur because one of our lineman fell on him. Coach was then trying to find a replacement because our backup was out because he crashed his ATV. I knew i was the only person on our team that had played quarterback but that was four years ago. I stepped up we put our backup running back in he was a good

The setting starts in New Jersey where he grew up and began his soccer career all the way up to playing for the New Jersey MLS team, then to the United Kingdom where he played for club teams, such as Manchester United and Everton. The setting ends at the 2014 World Cup in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, where he played his best match of his career. The main conflicts of the story are person versus self and society. Tim struggles with person versus self conflict because all his life he has struggled coping with Tourette Syndrome. This disability created learning a serious struggle for him as a child and made him perform strange twitches and behaviors as a result of TS.
It’s probably because I am the youngest on the team. I feel like some of my teammates doubt me because I am two years younger than they are and smaller than most of them. Because of this, and because I just love playing soccer, I spend a lot of my free time juggling or heading a soccer ball. I practice these skills a lot, but it had never seemed to pay off in a game yet. It was nearing the end of the game and we were winning 4-0.
In previous years, the same kid has caused problems in basketball and soccer, both situations resulting in everyone losing the sport, basketball for three weeks, and soccer for three days because it was the end of the year. To me, it seems like the kid 's parent does not want him to have to lose his recess, or seem like a bad kid to everyone else. Again, at the end of last year 's events, instead of him and his friends losing recess for an amount of time or getting detention or even suspension, they were able to keep playing soccer, but the older kids had to stay with the other four in their grade who still played
