That was easy, getting through my mom, but the only problem was telling my dad. He was furious when I had told him football was my goal to achieve. Then when I had calmed him down, he finally said “Maybe.” So that following fall, I played. I showed the coaches and all the boys that girls can play football as good as men. At practice, we got our jersey numbers and position.
Complete Title When I was in middle school, writing was a bit of a struggle for me. Whether it was an essay or simply a reading response, I was not able to get a grade that was sufficient enough for myself. I felt that when I wrote, I would lose focus and motivation very quickly. Although lack of focus and motivation was present while I wrote, it was not present when I was out on the field playing a game I love: football. In 2008, I played football for the Boyertown Optimist Football League.
For years I loved football, but it was about sixth grade when I first started to like it. My dad was really into it, he 'd watch it every Sunday, Monday or Thursday whenever the Pittsburgh Steelers played. I used to hate it so much. The games were always so long, and all I wanted to do was play with my dad but he would get mad if I even talked. But that 's how almost every football fan is.
Football a contact sport, one that requires strength, speed, agility, and mental toughness. This is how I came to play this sport. It all started in fifth grade when I had finally decided that soccer wasn 't the sport for me, a slightly tubby taller than most kids. With knowing this I decided that football may be the sport for me, I will admit I was really nervous at first, the thought of a contact sport, and well being good at the sport really had me worried. Then the after the first practice whizzed by, I realized that it wasn 't so bad.
In track I did really good I got everything I wanted I had discus and shot put and I also did a 400 meter and got close to 3 but someone tied and I got 5th.

I started playing football in 8th grade, but the real work began when I got to varsity football. It began in the spring after my freshman year. Because so many people on the team were older and stronger than me, I became very intimidated and even contemplated quitting football. When I told
My hands wouldn’t keep still, every time I wiped the sweat off them, it would be replaced within seconds it seemed. I was scared if you listened close enough, you could hear the pounding of my heart threatening to burst out my chest. But who can’t keep calm when it’s their first game? We were all nervous, families, and friends came to watch us start the season off. We were playing with only a few mistakes that night, and we worked together as a team, as a result we won our first game.
As a result to Football makes me who Iam I don 't know what i could had done without football If it wasn 't for football I wouldn 't be in college right now before I played Football my grades were horrible. It 's not like I needed help or anything, it just that i needed a motivation and football bring all that motivation . Whenever I don 't feel like going to school I would look up the Adrian Peterson poster i have in my room because I know for sure Adrian peterson had work hard to get where he is right now and that was including going to school.

Playing football means so much to me because it helps me to not be depressed all the time and to prove to doctors that I can play the sport even with narcolepsy and cataplexy. Also, I want to prove to many people that told me it will be extremely difficult to major in Civil Engineering and play football at the same time. Engineering itself is very difficult, especially when you start the introduction of your major your junior year. Last but not least, football can help me pay for school by earning a scholarship, even though I walked on. This motivation helps me for schooling because all of my first cousins played college ball on an athletic scholarship.
Football has always been more than a game, it’s been my whole life. From when I was first handed a pigskin when I was born, until the last play of my senior season, it has meant everything to me. Many people don’t understand how big of an impact football puts on young kids, whether it 's Pee-Wee trying to learn the game or Varsity trying to win games and get scouted. From beginning to end there are so many life long bonds created and so many lessons learned. Starting out in Pee-Wee it is very difficult for a young kid like me to learn all the plays and responsibilities he is entrusted to fulfill as I was the Quarterback.
