As a kid my dream was to become an NHL hockey player and play for the Detroit Red Wings. I would play rollerblade hockey in my driveway for hours acting like I was on the Red Wings. This got me interested in how this game that I love, came to be. Hockey’s origin didn’t come from one man or country, but from many different people, cultures, and sports and as it grew, it became a very serious sport in many areas of the world. Hockey’s beginnings and rules were affected by a couple of different sports.
Throughout my entire playing career, I have had to balance an intense hockey schedule with an intense school schedule. With two such important, yet intense activities comes a magnitude of self discipline, and time management. I had to learn how to not only excel, but become efficient at my school work. Along with being physically capable, playing hockey at such a high level increased my mental capabilities by keeping my brain thinking during games and practices. Looking back at my last four years of high school, I have realized that if I were to go back and do it all over again, I would change nothing and do the same
My dad and I have been wanting to go to the hockey store down the street so we did. On the way out of the hockey store i saw a sign that said twenty five percent off anything in store, so me and my dad went back in and i got myself new shoulder pads. Later that day me and a few friend started to head to the rink for the game. We got there very early because we also wanted to see a game before us with kids that we were playing the next day. After that game we lost by one point with about one minute left in the game so I was not to happy about that but at least we tried.

Being smaller than everyone else, I knew I had to set my standards higher and work harder than everyone else to keep up. I became obsessed. There was always something about that crunch on the ice when I took that step into my cross-over, the speed of the game, the intensity, and the gift of being able to play alongside 20 of my brothers to achieve the common goal of doing something bigger than all of us. I opened that heavy entrance door for the ice rink and immediately felt that rush of eagerness to lace up the skates. With this in mind, I took a step onto that ice and my tryout debut was incredible.
We were ready to leave and take our very first class of snowboarding. When we get there it looked a lot of fun. On the first day of attempting to snowboard, I could barely make it down the mini pipe. It

It was pouring cats and dogs when I arrived at Village Sports, the local hockey rink I play at. I arrived an hour early so I could warm up before the game started. I was wearing my team sweatshirt and warm up pants.The team we were playing was one of the best teams we played all year. So, as you can imagine , I was very nervous and shaking as if I had just chugged 8 cups of coffee. I was thinking about the game and was staying focused.
My First Time Snowboarding If you have ever seen the snowboarding part of the X-Games or the U.S Olympic Snowboarding team, you know how good they are. But their first time snowboarding wasn’t as bad as mine. I was in the sixth grade when I first started snowboarding. The middle school I went to had a ski and snowboard club that went to a nearby ski hill every Friday. And on that Friday was my first time.
It all started a year ago when my name got called in the First Niagara Center in Buffalo, New York. “With the first overall pick in the 2016 NHL entry draft the Carolina Hurricanes are proud to select Samual Cane.” It was a dream come true for me and for the organization and the fans. My draft stock went up throughout the year from being projected not to be drafted, to a clear number one above players like Austin Matthews, Matthew Tkachuk, and Jacob Chychrun. This was a miracle to most people, but this wasn’t the highlight of the season. This was the year where the first NHL game was played during a hurricane.
Because it is every hockey players dream to make it to the state tournament, I committed this triumph to memory. I watched the team as they celebrated their victory with the fans. I watched the players hug each other and cry with tears of joy. "So that 's what it would feel like to go to the state tournament," I heard myself say. As they continued to celebrate, I sat there wondering about the team and what kind of players contributed to their success.
I wasn 't a great soccer player, but after making the team I really developed persistence. To this day, I am so grateful that I made that decision to try something new and work hard at it, because this year I actually ended up starting varsity for Villa Maria soccer. Although I am very passionate about soccer, I am also passionate about other things. In fifth grade I started snowboarding. After developing a burning passion for the sport, I decided to buy a snowboard.
