I remember it like it was yesterday freshman year basketball tryouts I was really excited as soon as that final bell rang I ran straight to the gym to get ready tryouts were the whole week but I felt like I needed to get off to a good start. I got in the gym put my shoes on stretched and started to get warmed up. The coach walked in the gym I got really nervous he didn 't know me I didn 't know him so I went up shook his hand and told him my name and the grade I was in. Tryouts finally started we started doing drills I was trying so hard not to mess up but I ended up messing up a couple times but I said hey no one 's perfect. The first day of tryouts was almost over the coaches got all of us together and put us in to scrimmage teams.
As my dad and I arrived at the game, the fan were cheering so loud that we heard them as soon as we step out of the car .I said to my dad “It’s so loud that it could wake up the dead In excitement, we quickly walked to the gate, with this being, my first college game and the Miami hurricanes were playing their rivals the Florida state Seminoles ,I could not wait .We finally reached the gate and handed the man our tickets ,and he said “Today is your lucky day son ,your ticket is the winning ticket and you can choose were u want to sit .He said I can sit with the cheerleader for half of the game and the other half with the football players .I was so ecstatic that I could not talk not even talk . I asked the man could my dad come with me and he said, of course, he can, you have to have a parent or guardian with you. I decided to sit with the cheerleaders the first half of the game and the football players the second half .A man with a security jacket on came take my dad and I to the field were the cheerleader were .As we walked on the field, the security man told the girls that I had the winning ticket, and they all ran over to tell me
I didn’t want to be late because it was going to be crowded and I wanted a seat.This trail was going to be extra special because the princess’s boyfriend was going to be on trail. My husband and I were very excited to go to the arena to watch the trail. I wondered how this political system running by a barbaric king would work. Is this going to be a fair trial? After bringing the kids to school, my husband and I headed over to the arena.
I can thank my parents for that. They gave me the opportunity to play as much as I did. My dad has told me stories that when I was around two years old I would try and mimic the swings of professional ball players on TV. I wanted to do all things that were physical activity. I played football or basketball everyday after school with my friends in the neighborhood.
Tried to enjoy the honor band. We carried all the stuff into the gymnasium and chose a spot on the bleachers. I put my trombone together and I started to practice my audition scales and music anxiously. Luckily, I had my big band practice before my audition. I was in Mr. Fritz’s band so I headed towards the big band practice room with Tara.
I started to practice at my house—it was the only hoop available for me at the time. Everyday, I would go outside and just shoot as many shots as I can so, I could make my form better. A few weeks of practicing, I started to see progress in my form—I made more shots than usual. Since I thought I was getting better, I decided to ask my parents if they could put me in a basketball team. My parents agreed without any hesitation.
As I was dribbling down the court the shot clock began to Go down all I heard was 5...4...3...2...1 then the crowd went crazy because I made the shot. From that day on everyone began to call me clutch. I love the sport of basketball because I’ve been playing it since I was about 3 years old. Every since then it’s always been my favorite sport. ’ The responsibilities of a professional basketball player are that they must play their hardest on the court in games, and at practice work harder than their teammates at all times, and best for representing their team in public .
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.
From stepping on that field for the first time and hearing the announcer announce your name for the first time under the bright lights as you stand there seeing your family looking from the stands with joy and excitement. The sounds of your coach yelling and pushing you to work harder, not just for yourself but for the team. Seeing how all 11 players on the team bust their butts off for the team is true love for the game. Every tactical word yelled from across the other side of the field and those occasional curse words you get from the other team as they struggle against you. Before your eyes you get to see the amazing plays build up before you and being part of it is the beauty of the game, the game that I call my own.
During the freshman year of high school, I noticed that there are monthly school events that take place during lunch time and so, I would always visit them and have a great time. An example of a popular school event would be Back to School Blast. At this event, students can play games, such as water dunk, sumo wrestling and watch live musical performances. As time passed, I always wondered who ran these events because they always turned out fantastic and it seemed very enjoyable to organize. At first, I thought it was a club so, I went around asking other students if they know how I can join it.
