She practiced nonstop, even though people told her she would never make a team. Year after year, Lynette would get better and better in basketball. She soon was shooting like a pro and would always go to the court when she got home. She never realized she would make history. After she graduated college she traveled to Europe.
I must admit that I was extremely frustrated when my doctor told me the conditions of my back. But after years of self-evaluation and reconsideration, I started to realize that the undesirable result does not necessarily make my commitments worthless or futile. Even though I lost a couple of opportunities to show how hard I had been working, playing basketball did change my life enormously. Basketball served as a driving force and motivation throughout my adolescence. I worked hard in basketball in order to persevere, especially after I started practicing with the district basketball team.
Boone had made suggestions to allow Yoast to stay. Boone offered Yoast the position to work on the staff, become a defensive coordinator, or assistant head coach. Yoast was not pleased with Boones suggestions and was hesitant to give Boone a final answer. Yoast thought long about his decision on whether he should leave his coaching career for the Titans and accept another role as head coach at different high school, or Yoast could continue working and coaching for the Titans, with his cherished players, but as an assistant coach to Boone. Yoast had decided to remain assistant head coach for the Titans.
I think Mr. P wants Junior to get a better life and wants him to find his hope somewhere else not in the reservation. It’s not easy for Junior to find hope in the reservation because the reservation people has given up. So, Mr. P doesn’t want Junior to give up. He wants him to go somewhere where people have hopes not given up, because Junior family has given up with their hopes. Mr. P wants Junior to be around people who have hopes and move on from the reservation because Mr. P knows that Junior won’t give up.
He started to take a stand for himself. He spoke up because he noticed something was wrong and finally understood how he should be treatment and his needs as an individual. For once, he began thinking about what was favorable for him, instead of what was beneficial for everyone around him. At his last Brotherhood gathering he expressed, “Everywhere I’ve turned somebody has wanted to sacrifice me for my good- only they were the ones who benefitted. And now we start on the old sacrificial merry-go-round.
In this world today, every kids dream is to make it out there city, to do something special they truly love, but it seems like it’s something always holding them back from overcoming their dreams. Well the question is what is possibly holding kids back from overcoming the perfect dream, and one of those things is the right to come out of highschool to play in the NBA instead of taking one year of college. Now I 'm not saying you shouldn’t go to college to play college basketball but I believe kids that are highly skilled should be able to go in the NBA without attending college, if they wanted to make the decision. To play basketball on the highest level, it takes hard work, time, and determination to make it in the NBA but a lot of people
I can remember the game so clearly, it was during the second quarter of the J.V. basketball game and I had just gotten the rebound and passed it out to Kelsie. Next thing I know a player from the opposing team came up right beside me and hit me in the side, I feel a big pop and hear a loud crack. I’m in excruciating pain, but I push through it and keep on playing because it 's my last quarter for the J.V. game and it 's almost halftime.
I will face a lot of tough obstacles, but I know my main three obstacles. My first obstacle is to get into college and get a scholarship for playing basketball. I have to play my hardest and make shots for my team. I plan on making everyone look good by making good decisions. Then I have to ask coach if I have any offers.
I started to practice at my house—it was the only hoop available for me at the time. Everyday, I would go outside and just shoot as many shots as I can so, I could make my form better. A few weeks of practicing, I started to see progress in my form—I made more shots than usual. Since I thought I was getting better, I decided to ask my parents if they could put me in a basketball team. My parents agreed without any hesitation.
I played it for two years and thought my baseball career was over until I joined the Mountain Pointe Warriors summer team. Some of the negative experiences in your life will teach you positive lessons that can be character building. After my two years of playing juniors I wanted to quit. I wasn’t playing at a high level and I didn’t have the love and passion as I once did. My parents were telling me to play and I declined.
Cuban doesn’t believe that the NBA should change the rule. On the other hand, University of Louisville’s head men’s basketball coach, Rick Pitino believes, “ High school athletes should be able to go straight to the NBA. He said that the athletes who go to college go to pass time until they can enter the draft don’t get much from taking online classes for seven months”. Pitino also stated, “ College is not for everybody. So, if a kid doesn’t want to go to college, let him go to the
I know you can win this war!” The reason it’s making me re-enlist is because the people need my help to get their freedom just like my friend. And I will get it for them and my friend. I will do what I can and besides I want to die for honor and purpose for my country than to die with nothing to live for and no reason to
I wanted to start a club about cups. Ever since I was 7 years old I wanted to start a club for cupstacking and teach others this wonderful skill. Cupstacking involved stacking cups in sequences while also trying to get the fastest time possible. It started in the summer of 2015 and I taught summer camp children cupstacking just for fun. Then I started thinking, “What if I started a cupstacking club in my old school?” So I decide to talk with elementary teachers over the summer to see if I can get a sponsor.
378 Jump shots bouncing off the rim, passes to the wrong team, a silence where one could hear a penny drop, and the word “BASELINE” is what I remember from practice two days before the Highland Park game. We were playing live against the scout team, but we were playing them like they were the ‘95-’96 Chicago Bulls with Michael Jordan at the helm. After a few minutes of this nonsense, Coach McKendrick told our team to get on the baseline to run. However, it was not because we were playing poor. It was because our captains were not talking to our team and bringing more energy to our practice.
Freshman year came along and I wanted to attend Sullivan High School. I wanted to come back to my hometown, I was just missing the people I started it all out with in the beginning. My dad and I had all of the paperwork finished already to go for me to attend Sullivan High School in August, but my mom refused and wouldn’t budge to let me go. She didn’t want me going to Sullivan, she wanted me to stay with all of my new friends I had made at Owensville. She thought my best bet would be to stay and proceed to go to OHS.
