My dear girls to achieve this goal, we will need to play better than we ever have. We have no choice than to play the games of our lives! We will need to completely feel our team spirit during the whole tournament. Every single one of us plays a major role and has her job to do on the field and also on the sideline. And this not just in two months when the championships take place but also now while we are preparing for this adventure.
Cheerleading Tryouts We had cheerleading tryouts at the end of last year. It was one of the most stressful times of my life. One of my biggest dreams was to become a cheerleader. Before cheerleading began I had more free time, played other sports, and spent more time with my family. During the week of tryouts we practiced right after school from 3:00 P.M. until 6:00 P.M.
I’ve wanted to become a Coach since I was very little. It has always been a my dream to be a coach. 3. Being a coach isn’t easy it comes with a lot of responsibility even if your only coaching at a local high school. But coaching at the college level comes with a lot more!!
Freshmen year was a rude awakening of what I was getting myself into. Coach Smolder was the toughest coach I have ever had. Our first day of practice we had to run 66, 40 yard sprints and I did all that just to start kickoff return on a 7-3 playoff football team, but I was the only freshmen to start. Sophomore year came around and it was a great learning experience because I started offensive line and played over ¾ of the game at defensive end which was weird because I’ve always played middle linebacker. I suppose everyone was in a sophomore slump because that year we were mediocre, going 5-5, but I was the only sophomore to play and I even picked up a fumble and ran it in for a 43 yard touchdown, it was our best game if the year.
I believe she is the main reason for that. She nevermore wanted to see me in the same situation as other family members, as a result she pushed me to make good grades, expecting nothing less than a B. Without exception, she wanted me to strive to be the best I could be in any sport or activity I participated in. Throughout my life, I have had three events take place that have forever left a mark on my life. When I was ten, my uncle was in a horrific wreck.
My presence was already the wrong path towards success and greatness. This is my chance to come in from the sidelines. To create something great, to be someone great. Even with my ‘disadvantages’. I will stay ahead of the game, to be able to reach the finish line of my life.
The day I had been waiting for for so long had finally arrived; the first day of the high school lacrosse season was finally here. That day was the day I needed to prove to my coaches that I deserved to be on the varsity team after not making it at tryouts. That day was a scrimmage at High Velocity, we were scheduled to play four games all in one day, against Saline, Okemos, Brighton, and Belleville. I woke up that day excited, I couldn’t wait to actually be playing lacrosse again. My breakfast was the same as any other morning, a bowl of cereal and some yogurt.
I found some of my other friends and started talking to them as well. Once the bell rang we all hustled to our new classes, because we didn’t want to be late. I had Ms. Yarrow, Mr.Lee, and Mrs.Shizzle. The first day went by great and I had amazing teachers with a lot of my friends in my classes. When I got home that day I ran off the bus all the way down to our house and was so excited to tell my parents about my day.
My most favorite memory as a Indian Springs Cheerleader was our first home game in the new stadium It was very intense and it was a very long day, it was my very first time cheering at a game in like years so I was scared and nervous, I don’t watch football much so I didn’t know what was happening on the field but later on in the game I got the hang of it. This was great because I got to cheer with great team that night and hope that I get to do it again . Another favorite moment was the Pep Rally, it was my first time performing in the rally and I never thought I would be able to do something so cool. I think the whole team was nervous, but we still went out there and did our best. Another memorable moment that I had from being a cheerleader was, basketball season it was very intense to see and cheer at the basketball games.
John Wooden once said “failure is not fatal but failure to change might be”(John Wooden Quote.) Wooden was addressing the idea that one only fails if they do not change after messing up. I never fully understood that principle until I attempted the FFA Creed Career Development Event. After not giving all that I could during the contest, I experienced the worst defeat of my FFA career. I had always thought that Wooden’s statement was only inspire those who had lost, but through personal failures I have learned otherwise.
I ran to the 45 to the 35 to the 20, hoping to find the kick returner. 8 months waiting for this moment all the sweat, pain, 100 degree sun beaming UV rays to my face. I kept going for the guy next to me performing to the best to his ability. Success was the result of all the hard relentless work done throughout June into August. I acknowledged that my team had a good group of seniors who were high character student-athletes I spent most of childhood with.Ultimately finishing with a record of 3 wins and 7 loses taught me many lessons on becoming a better person and
I disliked flag football and was so happy when I finally was allowed to sign up for Urbana Hawks tackle football this Fall. I bought all of my equipment over the Summer, practiced, and was ready to play. I also was so excited to find out that my neighbor and best friend (Tony) was on my team. It was time
