Gareth Bale runs at a speed of 34.7km/h while, Cristiano Ronaldo only runs 33.6km/h so he’s pretty quick. After I got done watching videos of those two it was 8:00 A.M. so I took a moment to picture the match going well. Usually when I do this I go to my room, put on my earbuds, get my phone and listen to a speech.
Ever since I was a toddler, I loved sports. Baseball, basketball, it did not matter; I just liked to run. When I was around 4 or 5, I was in the living room watching the Steelers play the Cardinals and saw Santonio Holmes grab a game winning touchdown to win the Superbowl. I was so excited that I jumped up in the air and I told my dad, “Daddy when I grow up I want to play football and I want to score a lot of touchdowns just like 10 does.”
But, that speculation changed on the night of my first ice hockey practice at the Hill School. Both of my parents were alongside me on the night of my first practice. It took around fifteen minutes to get from my home to the rink. When I first entered the building, I received a Pottstown Penguins jersey, the team I would be playing for. In the locker room, my father did most of the work of getting me dressed.
I had plenty of time to think about my runs considering that Rock Springs is 15 long hours away. Once we got there is when all the nerves started to get me. I found out when I drew up and it just happened to be Sunday night and Saturday morning which meant I had almost a full week to see my competition go. It also meant I only had two days to mentally prepare myself. On Saturday morning I got up early and worked Fancy one last time before the round that night.
The first time on a football field and i was very hyped about it cause i got to play and the coach put me as starter because i was the biggest one on the field. The very first play we got sacked but are left lineman didn't stop the ball they got pushed over and we got sacked. The ball was on the 25 yard line and we were trying to get to the fifteen yard line to get the first down and we were short 10 yards but we could still get cause if we work hard you play hard.
Everyone was booing pretty loud. Then a moment late it came time for the Vikings to come out. They had the cheerleaders in a line and two boxed shaped things at the end that shot off flames when the announcer announced that the Vikings were coming out. When the flames shot up the stadium got warm within an instance. The Vikings came running on the field and the stadium was louder then I could imagine.
But at the end i'm finally able to go on a family trip. Two days have passed every day has been more and more exciting for my brother and I. My brother was so excited one day that he was already in the car because he thought that we were already heading to the airport. The night that we were leaving we had to wake up at 3:00 in the morning.
I cannot believe we have another marching band rehearsal. I have to walk out to the school’s marching band practice field again for the third time this week, just to go over what we already did yesterday. It is hot, humid, and I am tired. We go through all of this work, and we do not get anything from it. Why do we have to work for five hours a week for a ten-minute show anyway?
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.
Inspired by that moment, I joined a track club and became captivated by the pole vault. The spectacle of flying two stories through the air seemed like the perfect challenge. Despite living in a sport-centric town, no local pole vault coach would teach me at my age. So every week my dad and I drove 2 hours to train at a special club.
After he was tackled Austin and I looked in awe because it was a very impressive run. At halftime of the game, it was 13-0 Bettendorf, Austin and I talked to some friends we knew from both schools. After standing out in what we thought was freezing cold we headed to the
I had that butterfly feeling in my stomach as I was sitting in the front passenger’s seat of my dad’s 2007 pearl Ford F-150, I felt as if I was going into battle…… But I was ready. When I arrived to the stadium it was a very gloomy early April day, rap music was blasting, and the stadium felt like fresh cut grass. I got there I got my try-out number 705, I was excited because my favorite football number is 75, and I thought that that was very lucky.
we were play 29 palms that week, they are our biggest rivals after yucca and i just wanted to get yellow paint on my helmet so bad. last year when we played them a big boy crushed me and i hurt my ankle. i was really hoping he was a freshman last year so i could get some payback. I woke up the morning of the game put some makeup on and a mask that looked very human like and went to school.
Our record was 1.0 and we were looking for the win to be 2.0. Every game I have a goal, and that goal was to score the biggest touchdown of the game, but the team we were going against probably wouldn 't let that happen. But who cares I still believed I could do it. Before the game we had to do a roster check to make sure that we were all on the team.
