The week before the homecoming game, we found out that our starting senior libero got sick with Mononucleosis, which meant that she couldn’t participate in any physical activity. We quickly had to find our next best passer, for that next week’s big game, and I was next in line. You will never know when you will have to step up, and when chances like this will arise . You always have be prepared, otherwise you might miss your chance. When I found out that I had to libero for one of the biggest games of the season, I was dripping with drops of nerves.
Bell may be the NFL’s best all-round back is occupied with the appeal of a four game suspension for missing numerous drug tests. Martavis Bryant, who is the Pittsburg’s No.2 receiver, has been banned for any participation in this season due to his substance abuse violations. At a certain juncture, the cocktail of poor judgment and bad luck figures is going to reduce leading to reorganization of the NFL’s quarterback, running back and receiver combination. Considering the time that has lapsed sine the trio managed to stay in the game for entire 60 minutes as back in December 21, in 2014 leaving everyone speculating what this type of offence is capable of yielding. Todd Haley, offensive coordinator, said that the most prudent approach is to remain focused on the task at hand and try and reap the most out the players.
The sun beat down constantly with temperatures that had reached 90 by noon, and I was our teams catcher. Shin guards, a chest protector and a helmet all day. I could hardly take it, but I wanted so much to win so I dealt with the misery for one day. The first game we lost. It was a close game with a score of 4 to 5.
My parents and friends knew the struggles I was going through with soccer and they all said the same thing, “why don’t you try cross country?” My answer was the same each time, “I would never even consider doing cross country, that's not going to happen. Sophomore year started and again I put myself through the pressures of making a soccer team. That year, the program cut 21 girls and I was put on a team mostly filled with freshman. I was devastated by this because I had worked relentlessly for four months during soccer pre-season
Like last year the wild card game for the pirates which I went to, we got shut down by the Cub’s pitcher and didn’t post one run the whole game. Or in 2010 when the Steelers made it all the way to the super bowl only to lose to the Green Bay Packers. The Steelers had a ball on the 20 yards line driving down and they lost. I really thought they were going to have another miracle win in the super bowl. The 2008-09 Pitt Panthers, ranked #4 in the nation, gave the University its best chance at a National
High and his name is Logan Northup from Sigourney. I have inspired my brothers to play every year and my Dad coaches them too but they have never been undefeated. Logan taught me tricks and techniques because he played soccer in college. He got me started playing soccer for William Penn College youth leagues after I got too old to play for Sigourney anymore. Now I play soccer for the Oskaloosa team and I have played for them every year in the spring and fall.
I cannot believe we have another marching band rehearsal. I have to walk out to the school’s marching band practice field again for the third time this week, just to go over what we already did yesterday. It is hot, humid, and I am tired. We go through all of this work, and we do not get anything from it. Why do we have to work for five hours a week for a ten-minute show anyway?
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.
Time for our first scrimmage. Now this was not an actual game. It didn’t count for our winning and losing streak. It was basically just our first time playing against another team at another school with an audience. Nervous was a word that came to our minds.
I hindered greatly from having confidence of myself which ultimately led me to have a indifferent beginning to my high school career. Following that year I made sure every season returning to soccer in the fall, that all freshman and new players were welcomed and felt like this team was a group of people they could count on no matter
Going into college, athletics were always first priority to me; but after being a regular starter on my soccer team entering my junior year, my priorities were completely reversed. My first two years of college saw me as one of four players (out of a class of 22 players) to be on the varsity soccer team, meaning that I was exposed to long bus rides, missing classes for team events, and constantly being a lesson behind other students in my class. I had trouble balancing soccer, work, and school during that time, as I was only able to maintain a 3.1 GPA. I decided that putting all my effort in soccer was not the correct route to take, as school was going to lead me further in life. For the next two seasons, I was on a
we were play 29 palms that week, they are our biggest rivals after yucca and i just wanted to get yellow paint on my helmet so bad. last year when we played them a big boy crushed me and i hurt my ankle. i was really hoping he was a freshman last year so i could get some payback. I woke up the morning of the game put some makeup on and a mask that looked very human like and went to school. i told everyone that i was an exchange student and would only be there for two days.
At the beginning of the season, the Bernice MacNaughton varsity boys soccer team nearly folded, but now, after the final game last weekend, the Highlanders are the AAA senior boys provincial champions and earned the school’s first Senior boys provincial banner. While working as a drivers-ed instructor, a student was talking about how his soccer team at MacNaughton did not have a coach to Blaine Dornan. “If you really need me, let me know” said Dornan to the student. Soon there after, he became MacNaughton’s varsity boys soccer coach. A short time afterwards, the coach received an email saying that the team would have to fold as there was not enough players to fill the roster.
