I was taken to the emergency room and I didn't leave until 5 o'clock the next morning. My hopes of making varsity as a sophomore were crushed that day. My symptoms were fairly severe, I had trouble walking, and reading of any kind gave me massive headaches. I was very sad that all of my hard work was amounted to nothing because of one stupid injury. Recovery was tough.
One by one each group turned in a scorecard. Finally the last group came in. Watching the pro look at the scorecards made us so nervous. It took atleast five minute for him to decide the winner. The pro said, “For fourth place the Zach and Jacob.
Only eight seconds before the timer went out the opposing team managed to put in a three- point shot. Following that CJ made a three- point to tie the game once again, however, of the referees argued claiming he was on the three- point line. Which put CJ’s team onto a disadvantage of 1. This still 3.1 seconds left of game time, and like it often happens, CJ earned two free throws. CJ didn’t perform any worse under pressure.
This was one of four or five pars I made that day at Mahoney. I realize that those pars were the result of the hard work and practice I went through the past weeks. After I had made the team, practices started right away. I looked forward to these practices every single day after school. I especially enjoyed playing a round of nine holes with my friend Zach and a new friend I had made named John.

That summer I took a job in the Wheaton College athletic facility so that I could train everyday after work. Over the course of those summer months, I spent countless hours lifting weights, playing pick-up basketball games, and running on the track. By mid-August, I was in the best physical condition of my life and ready to start the basketball season. Then something happened that would greatly affect my life for the next two
Most Stressful Game ever Played It was the day we had to play West Kent Hawks in State Playoffs for our seeding. We had lost to West Kent twice with our full roster and now we lost two of our good players, the odds weren’t good. We just beat Grand Rapids Christian on Friday and Rockford and Battle Creek Gold the day before. We were tied with West Kent, whoever won this game is going to the finals. The locker room was as quiet as the Alaskan wilderness.
I knew some people from Horseshoe Bend, so this was a game I actually sat down and watched. Horseshoe Bend won the game and that meant we had to play them next. I felt weird playing against someone I played with all summer. We won the game, so we get to play in the championship

When he had inventory at the end of each month, he would come home later at night,
The Bears got themselves out of trouble and Burgess made his old team mates pay, charging through the line to dash 60 metres for his hat trick. Levido added the extras and it was 20 points to 2 at half time. Wyong were literally running up hill the second half, three converted tries behind the Bears and Morrie Breen Oval slopes from north to south made the job hard. The Roos had the majority of the ball early in the second half but could not convert into points. It was a different story for North’s though, scoring their fifth try thanks to Latrell Robinson backing up Sitveni Moceidreke to score right in front.
They had a very selfish player that had almost half of their points. So we figured if we just lock him up when knew we were gonna win. He scored about 5 more points to start the 3nd half so by that time i just started guarding him. I knew he was weak minded and just wanted to shoot over me so i was just gonna be aggressive with him the whole time. He finally got me in the open court and everyone cleared out it was just me and him in the backcourt.
