Soccer There once was a soccer game. It was going to be the other team that wins because the other team was in the lead and they just pushed so we get a free kick in the 18 box. I was the one taking the shot and it went in the goal and then everybody was comparing the ball to the goalie.
The Soccer Game I am running with the ball one on one with the goalie left or right I shoot the ball and hope for the best. All of a sudden I hear the parents go wild I scored ! The refs and soccer scout come to me they give me the man of the match award. The next day at I walk into the big red building awaiting a new day.
Running down the field with the ball in my feet and my teammates shouting at me to pass the ball. My only thought was that I can score alone, I don 't need my teammates. I guess now looking back in the past when I was a kid I never realized how valuable teamwork is in soccer. Looking back I almost never played like I was on a team. I played like it was a one man show.
Breath was rushing out the kid who wore a Gray and blue uniform, the boy 's hair was black and poked straight up in twisted curls, he had brown eyes that looked like dirt, he was strong and athletic, his name was D’haquille Jones, and I was DhaQuille Jones, staring down at the newly glazed floorboards of John Pickett high school gym. The ref blew the whistle signaling that our time out was over, and all we had was thirteen precious seconds to beat the Valencia high. I jogged onto the court, adrenaline rushing through my body. The ref tossed the ball towards Chris, once he had found the open man he lobbed it over the oncoming defender. Calling for the ball I sprinted around my defender to get open.
What is the most important thing you have ever had to prepare for, and how did you prepare for it? The most important thing I have ever had to prepare for was my freshman year JV football game against the Seaford Vikings. Seaford was our biggest rival. We had been preparing all summer and fall coming up to this game.
When I first thought about how soccer impacted my life, nothing really came to mind. I was that kid who mostly looked forward to the end of the game snacks and bringing around the goal jar. But when I actually began thinking about more about playing soccer I realized that soccer was the first place where I was fully submerged into something completely new. I learned how to make friends, how be a leader, and how to have good sportsmanship. These are all things that have made me into the person I am today and it all began on the soccer field.
What I Learned From Soccer Soccer has taught me so much over the years. I started playing when I was very young, and continued through middle school. While I no longer play the sport, I still find myself reaping the rewards for my time spent on the field. Many life lessons were learned, but three really stand out to me. They are still major keys in my life today and contribute to who I am as a person.
The day was a day for sports. The sport was high school football team. I was brand new to the team it was my first time playing for the high school. I had made the team I have had experience playing for a team in my city. I was good at throwing in practice.
High School Administrators and Teachers are expecting students to have their whole life planned out right out of Middle School. I never would have thought, that I would find my answer while playing softball. For me, I had struggled with the concept of knowing what I wanted to find a career in for the past three years, till I broke my finger and had a metal rod protruding out of my finger. The process of finding out what I wanted to accomplish in life started, before a softball game and my coach told all the girls that if they are hurt, not to say anything because we only had nine players.
I’ve been playing soccer for over ten years, and I am very passionate about it. However the passion and dedication hasn’t always been there with me. It took a long time to realize that I needed to actually work hard to be at the level or above the level of my teammates. I have always worked hard to get good grades, but for some reason it took me a long time to learn to work hard in sports. Even today I have a hard time with this.
