After that season I was more motivated than I have ever been. I was determined to go all out for my first varsity season. I convinced my dad to sign me up for a gym membership. At first, I wasn’t taking it that seriously, I would go around 3 times a week. But later on I got myself a partner to train with me and we pushed each other to our limits.
As the competition season and school began the amount of work for me to do increased. Having an AP class for the first time, three honors class, and a college course my balance for work slowly diminished. It grew harder and harder to focus on all of these but rather than quit I Singh 2 redoubled my effort. This was a significant point for me because I was going at my own problems alone. As the season progressed I got better until concert band season.
To the Younger Generation, oh how I wish there was an easy way to get through this thing they call high school. To be honest, I would search for that every day of my life as I go through high school and I can say that there is no easy way. High school is a necessary evil that is different for every single person that attends. It is fun and then it is not want you would like at all. As you venture through it you will soon realize these things and this is my way of telling you how to best go through it with the most ease.
Lastly, if you play sports all throughout your time in school without concentrating on your grades and it turns out you aren’t good enough to become a paid professional athlete, you are left with nothing to help you succeed in the real world. Even some of the best athletes ever careers get cut short. One example of this is Bo Jackson. He very well might have been the greatest athlete of all time, but his career was cut shorts because he got injured. So if you ever want to be like Bo Jackson and play with the professionals, just make sure you have a backup plan like an
“Touchdown Lafayette!” This was the start to my high school career and we were losing in the first half of the game. It took them forever to score so I believed that the defense could go hard and stop them just once. We knew if we lost it would be some smack going on social media so someone had to step up. Its 2nd and 12 in the 3rd quarter and we are winning by 4. Down set hut, the person I 'm guarding runs deep and I drop back.
I admired their Spirit and determination, but I knew I wouldn’t hear the end of it. They did not exhibit good sportsmanship this year. As we walked out of the gymnasium, none of the Sophomores talked about the 2nd year defeat. It was overwhelming how much of a change we would need to make if we didn’t want to place last for next year’s Spirit
Advocates for the NCAA claim that student athletes should not get paid because academics come first and sports are extra-curricular activities. However, the statistics do not back up the NCAA’s core values. For example, the NCAA Basketball Tournament requires up to 6 missed classes, many nationally televised games are played on weeknights, and this year the Florida State football team missed the first day of spring classes due to the national championship. Obviously, the NCAA is very concerned with the education of student athletes but it also seems as if the NCAA puts increasing revenue and publicity ahead of the importance of
As our program grew in size, the band focused purely on winning. The less we won, the more they yelled, and the less we wanted to work. That cycle of negativity carried through the next few years, and as the positivity that the upperclassmen sustained disappeared with graduation, the negativity within the band began to spread. I can remember in my sophomore year, we came back with only two third place trophies for one of our competitions, and were yelled at during the bus ride back about how we were slacking off; not a single positive word was said. By the beginning of my junior year, band had become a chore rather than an anticipated hobby; the love that it had brought me began to wear off.
Now because of this, that kid started shipping us. At first, both of us ignored this and continued on with our lives, but he came up with ship names, and that was when all hell broke loose. Both of us told him to shut up, but I was the one who really got pissed. I was in no mood to go through what I went through in elementary. You simply told him to stop and ignored him, even when he drew a heart with both our initials on it.
But they figured it out and after camp school was starting, and that didn’t go well because even though the football team was friends none of the school mates wanted them there so it was bad the first day. But they figured it out, work really well together, and they won all their football games and ended up winning the championship. In conclusion this essay was written to show teamwork and how important it is to have friends and teamwork with all your friends. This essay informs two things like my own experience with
For many years, schools around the nation have focused on sports instead of their academic studies. Many studies show that these activities are harming places of learning. Therefore, districts around the country should stop this after class past time to save money, reduce the child’s stress, and to increase the learners grades As many Americans know, money can help to achieve a great education. In an article “Should Your School Get Rid of Sports”, it was found that “many schools can not afford to repair classrooms due to the lack of funding”(Ripley 10).The biggest events the schools have to pay for are the games, they have to pay for the concession stands, to clean up after the kids who leave their trash and they have to repair the bleachers
I experienced a new vibe and atmosphere on my new team. The coaches demanded more effort and time than I’d ever put into soccer before. Three times a week in the spring and fall were never enough, soon it became all year round with summer training camps and winter indoor leagues. Not to mention the hefty price tag that came with training. There was always room for improvement and that didn’t sit well with my perfectionist personality or my parents’ wallet.
