I had no pressure or expectations since I had no prior times to hit or goals to meet. So when the gun went off I was not expecting that the power of adrenaline could do so much. I ran the first two miles faster than I had ever run at practice and it was a breeze. As I got towards the end I could hear my coaches yelling, “Push hard! You have four hundred meters left!” And that’s exactly what I did and my body was not prepared for it.
An 18 year old Caucasian male presents to your clinic with complaints of abdominal pain and bloody stools. The patient states that his bowel movements have increased in the last few months and that he was experiencing diarrhea.. He decided to come in when the pain and bloody diarrhea started. When asking about the abdominal pain, the patient describes the pain as severe cramping. The patient states that he has had a few accidents because he is unable to make it to the bathroom in time.
The first value that has affected my life, is the one about never giving up. This one means a lot to me because whenever I fail or lose, I always get back up on my feet and keep going at it until I’ve got the job done. In soccer, this value can be related at any point in the game. I have many experiences with this whenever I go to play the sport I love. For example when I’m playing out on the soccer pitch I can feel the smooth grass and watch how the ball rolls swiftly across the grass, and when the match starts the opponents that face would juke me out to get past me.
Then again the buzzer sounded for the third quarter. We huddled up and coach told us to get a drink and go back to the positions that we were in except me. I had to sit on the bench. Now I was mad, but I still cheered for our team like a good team mate. We scored;therefore, I screamed and cheered for our team.
He picked me up called my mom and I kept my eyes closed the whole time. I was in the car my mom was scared, and we went to the hospital. When I got there I was hoping I didn’t break my arm, my mom was there crying. I was nervous but I felt fine, then the doctor told me that I broke my arm. I had to stop playing for 3 months, I was acting fine but inside I was dying because I couldn’t do anything for three
Initially, my mind was set to join the soccer team. However, I found out there weren’t any openings available. The only team that had an opening was The Cross Country Team. I was terrified…my parents encouraged me to join as there wasn’t an option not to. Prior to my first day of practice I mistakenly prepared myself for failure.
I have experienced failure throughout my whole life. Though, the most recent failures I have experienced are when I entered the college. As one of the Best Player of the Year at soccer in high school, I took it for granted thinking that at my level, it would be okay for me not to continue practice soccer for the summer. Instead, I focus my whole summer working at two jobs near my house. As a result, I have learned a lesson the hard way.
Now, I can not write an essay on culture without expressing one of my loves in life, soccer. Soccer back in El Salvador (and most of Latin America) is like football in the U.S,many play it, even more watch it. My family is part of the group of soccer fans who only watch big tournaments such as the Fifa world cup: I think it 's mostly because we don 't have much time for it outside of those tournaments. My father only ever played it when he was young back in El Salvador, but just casually, but he thought it would be a good idea to put my on a team when I was 7, playing in Germany. As I remember it now, it never clicked with me.
I’m gonna talk about my soccer journey, where I’ve traveled with my family to and what I wanna do in college. Everyone thinks that soccer is that boring sport where you just kick a ball and run, but it actually isn’t. Soccer is a game where you have to have lots of skills and always have to be mentally ready for anything to happen like my team at state cup. We were losing 3-0 with 10 minutes to play and in those 10 minutes we scored 4
I remember the speech he gave as we were all gathered around him on the sideline. He said, “Don’t let up because you are ahead. The game’s not over and anything can happen.” Those words stayed on my mind as we started the second half. I always feel like I have something to prove when I play soccer. It’s probably because I am the youngest on the team.
This day was what caused my eleven month struggle with Post Concussion Syndrome, over a year of stomach issues, weight loss, and also several months of depression. Post Concussion Syndrome caused me to have terrible headaches every day for eleven months, and during this time I was taking about five Advil a day. I went to the doctor complaining of stomach problems, and it turned out that the amount of Advil I had taken had dissolved almost half of my stomach lining. With this problem, it was almost impossible for me to keep down food, so I ended up losing about fifteen pounds. I still think about that day every once in awhile and get upset, but I’ve tried to not let it affect my life more than it really
He takes the ball in his hand and swiftly goes up and makes the three. We finished the game off with a win. The whole time while playing I wondered why I had stopped working hard a while ago. I guess when it came down to it, I just shied away from the competition and let Alex easily take that spot on the court. However, I was not going to make that mistake again.
One of the best games of his college career. This game was Cams last game as a college athlete. In the 2011 Football season Cam threw for 2854 total career yards, and rushed 1473 yards. He won this with hard work and pure talent. He is a true role model and a hero to me.
Growing up school was never my forte, but I was always taught to be a student-athlete, not just an athlete. And it never made since to me until I got into my junior year in high school when I had to miss football games due to my grades. I always tell myself to live and abide by these quotes, which are: “Those to the left and right of you are who you will most likely to become, so surround yourself around those of the same goals and interest as yourself”. “Success is what you make it”. “You are not finished when you lose, you are only finished when you quit”.
