I am a student in Lopez Early College High School and I am in the varsity football team. Last year in the 2014-2015 football season we the team went 0-10. That means that we went 0 wins and 10 losses. Last year we were a bunch of sophomores in the varsity team and as a team in general we were not experienced in playing in a varsity game, since we really went from the freshman football team straight to the varsity football team. I remember that when we played Los Fresno my sophomore we lost to them extremely bad, I remember the score being 72-0.
As a freshman, and a coach 's son, I came onto the football team and took a starting spot from a junior, who had started in that spot all of last season. There were quite a few players that weren 't happy with the decision, but I felt as if I 'd earned the spot. I knew that the only way i would gain their approval was to stand out. All season I listened to, "He only starts because he is the coaches son" but I tried to block it all out. The junior, who 's spot I took, took all his anger out on me in practice, taking every cheap shot possible while people weren 't paying attention.
It was the week before we vs Franklin in our championship game and this was actually my first time playing for an actual championship and they had so many different rules then city volleyball it was a bit hard to learn and remember all the rules but I got it down pretty well after a few games and practices. We actually won all of our games except 3 to make it to the championship game. I loved my teammates, they all worked really hard to call the ball and help each other out through stuff all of our practices went well and everything but it kinda sucked because even before the championship, we lost against Franklin twice so we were pretty nervous to hear that they won and we were going to be versing them. My coach kept saying, “Bella
Left It All Out On The Field This quote is from the daily record, mentioning me after the Smithville football game. “As much as he tried to fight it, Chippewa’s Jake Hall couldn 't control his emotions. Like many of his teammates, the senior linebacker left just about everything he had in him on the field friday night in a 23-20 overtime win at Smithville in Wayne County Athletic league play”. This was by far my best game of my senior year football season. At the time we were fighting for our team 's playoff lives and if we wanted any chance of going there, we needed to win this game and we did, in overtime.
I felt like everything was collapsing around me. I was about to sob my heart out. But with some strange turn of events, the coaches said it wasn’t over. Now, what I am about to speak about is absolutely crazy and unfair in my mind as I reminisce about the event today. So basically, in this little league, if you went undefeated on the season and you lost in the championship game, you got to play again.
Coach Smith started talking, and he was talking about how the freshmen team last year went undefeated. I knew we could do it to but everybody had to show up to play. He said that he had talked to our coach last year. Coach Gade said that “we are a good team.” I thought we could have been a lot better. Then he said it.
Mikesbikes is a in class simulation that we did in BUS 102. The objective of the game was to get the have your company have the highest shareholder value out of the competing teams in our class. It was possible for the shareholder value to raise greatly or go down and eventually go into bankruptcy. Here today is our team explaining how we were very successful in the game. During the first few weeks of the practice run of the game, everyone in our group was having a very hard time getting used to it.
The opposing team was up by one and were stalling the ball. Possession was the one thing on everyone’s mind. Time was evaporating, the other team and their fans started to get optimistic. The buzzer announced the end of the competition and the roar from our opponents deafened cries from our team and our fans. We had lost the first game for our program in fourteen years.
Thursday night and for the third time in a row I was not mentioned in the starting line up. I was completely dishearten at this point. 65 minutes in the game, my coach told me to warm up. I was thrilled and nervous, but ready to play. At minute 70, ten minutes before the game to end the ball went out of bounds, the referee stopped the game as my coach signaled for a substitution, and I entered the pitch.
A difficult or challenging situation that I have faced is trying to become a starter on the football team. Every year I start the season as second string, next to sub in. However, I have always worked hard and gave all my effort every day at practice. Many days I have come home so exhausted I have no desire to eat, but if I did not then I also would not grow stronger. Now my senior year all my hard work has payed off as I am a starter on the defense and special teams.
I only had a few hours to choose what I wanted to do and so many pros and cons. There were so many awful consequences too. Volleyball I am a senior and am going to be a captain, but if I go to the football game would that drop me down to nothing. For cheer would I have the consequences of being the only returner in the back row. If I made the choice my mom wants me to do that mean I would be back row and that would be embarrassing.
Anyways we lost our game not just lost but we [Type text] got whipped. Why does it feel like coach duck is just throwing our season away? Moral of it all coaches will always put their favorites in. Especially if coach is related to someone on the time no matter how good they are or how sorry they are that person is guaranteed to play. That’s not fait to all the other kids though who has been there all year work hard.
Other teams, parents and coaches gathered around to watch this “David and Goliath” match. The first two sets blew right by us and we won it with ease. Now, all we had to do was play the third and final set and were going home champions. Something, however; shifted in the other team, as we started to realize that they wanted to win just as badly as we did. It took us by shock how much they improved their skills by one game, and before we knew it we lost the third set.
We were all worried that the team that had been disqualified during my freshman year was going to win. They were by far our biggest competition, but we didn 't let that stop us. In the end it paid off and we won our first every city title by just a mere two-tenths of a point. It was such an amazing moment and most of my team, including myself, were in tears. It was so rewarding to be apart of the team that finally won our school and city championship, and we followed the rules to
