Now I knew almost all of the coaches except the freshmen. I wasn’t sure what to expect. I knew we were going to come out and work hard every practice. All I wanted to do was impress the coaches. I had an advantage over all my teammates, I kinda knew what they expected.
This past year I have been fortunate enough to be a part of the George Fox Football Team; a community that many people want to be in but only the strong willed can make it on. I have played football my whole life and the way this team rallies and comes together is by far the best. Throughout, this year I have learned a multitude of life lessons, strengthen my ability to work in a team and to depend on my teammates while we all strive to achieve the same goal. The main uniqueness of my community, The George Fox Football Team, is the acronym that we stand for, T.A.P.E, through these four words I have learned many life lessons that has made me the man I am today.
North Andrew hadn’t been to a state championship game since the early 90’s. This isn’t acceptable in a small football town like mine. Everyone knew something had to change. It wasn’t until my sophomore year in 2012 that we finally made it back to a state championship. We had a new coach that year and a lot of talent. Our new coach worked our butts off, harder than any other 8 man team in the state. This was difficult for all of us but we later learned that hard work really pays off.

On Monday 5 seniors didn't show up and the Junior Varsity team consisted of the just the quarterback. The week dragged slower than usual and our practices always resulted in some type of punishment. On Friday coach decided to have a practice to make up for the week. It was time to condition and a senior decided to pick a fight with me, and being a very prideful person I did not back down. After we fought we were made to call our parents and had a meeting with the board of directors.
My eighth-grade year, I tried out for the school’s co-ed soccer team and was confident that I would make the team. During the three hard days of try-outs, I pushed myself to improve each day and received several compliments from the coaches. On the last day, the head coach pulled me aside to tell me

Our athletic director got wind and personally drove and picked me up and dropped me off at the site with the rest of my team. It was incredible to see someone go that far out of their way for some scrawny little sophomore who might have gotten moved up to varsity a little too soon. But, I wasn’t the only one would could tell a story similar to that one. That man instilled the passion inside me to try to be close to the man he
I kept going for the guy next to me performing to the best to his ability. Success was the result of all the hard relentless work done throughout June into August. I acknowledged that my team had a good group of seniors who were high character student-athletes I spent most of childhood with. Ultimately finishing with a record of 3 wins and 7 loses taught me many lessons on becoming a better person and
Summer was at full blast, Sunday league was starting and I was playing soccer every single day. I was ready for the next season of high school soccer to come and I was training myself to the limit because I wanted to be one of the best players on the field and to possibly be captain for varsity this year. This year was also the year our new coach, coach Jay was in charge of us because Olivier had left last year to to go to Michigan with his wife. Jay had already seen how well of a player I was because I played in his soccer club and immediately placed me in the varsity roster but as a defender and not a striker. The transition was difficult but I learned fast.
This was a huge step for me considering I did not even start JV a year ago. Although my dream came true by playing varsity with the upperclassmen, I did not want to stop there. I continued to listen to coach’s tips and work on my ball handling skills during practice. While my sophomore year consisted of more of a learning experience from playing JV, to adjusting and playing at the varsity level, I grew as a player and a person; I remained proud of what I accomplished. Time passed and before I realized it, my junior season arrived.
It’s not the will to win, but the will to prepare to win that makes the difference - Bear Bryant. Many different sports are in this world, including soccer, field hockey, lacrosse, baseball, basketball, but two sports I enjoy watching are rugby and American football. Two sports that so many people love in this world. When you think of football you think of your favorite team. When you think of rugby you can’t think of anything because not many people in the USA watch it or play it.
When Robert Kraft became the owner of the New England Patriots, he had to pocket $172 million – a record amount back then for a sport team. Looking at the team’s latest $2.6 billion valuation by Forbes, it seems like Kraft’s risky business investment has paid off big time. For the Patriots to get to where they are now, there are lots of reasons and lots of people to credit for but there are two names you can never leave out. In fact, they deserve to be mentioned first and foremost: Head coach Bill Belichick and Quarterback Tom Brady. Together, they make a perfect, powerful coach-quarterback combo in building the Patriots dynasty
