I did well at corner-back too where I tipped a pass and I got two tackles. So I was ready to help the RB’s score a touchdown, and I was in the huddle When all of a sudden, my QB told me that I was going to get the ball on a counter play. I got really nervous when he told me this, But when I lined up for the play I remember what Bugs told me, and I got really confident. When he gave me the ball, I ran as fast as I could and juked out one kid, then trucked over another kid, and I was running away from at least 5 players ahead of me.
After that year I told myself that would never happen again, so I started focusing on becoming a better athlete and trying to understand the sport. By eighth grade I was starting on defence and playing backup running back, which I did not mind at all. Playing the positions I liked, but then a team mate got
I started grid kid football when I was in 7th grade and I am still playing until this very day. I used to play lots of running back and wide receiver and some corner. My coaches really liked me and it was my first year and I already took people that been playing longer than me postions. Then one game we played firth it was a good game.the score was 12-14 they were up. I was on the sidelines waiting for coach to put me in as wide receiver.
What is the most important thing you have ever had to prepare for, and how did you prepare for it? The most important thing I have ever had to prepare for was my freshman year JV football game against the Seaford Vikings. Seaford was our biggest rival. We had been preparing all summer and fall coming up to this game.
It was nice but I looked back at the football. I did not do it for the attention but rather the fact that from there on I would be able to do it. My race wasn’t for the attention, but to prove to myself that I was able to beat the odds. I challenged the preconceived notion that my team would end up last. As a JV team in a varsity race, with the odds against us, we came in 10th out of 17 teams.
I learned the drills they ran and competition I had, so I worked hard and got a lot better. This year I was way more prepared so I did a lot better in tryouts.
I contemplated if it was worth my time to finish out the last two years of my career. I figured I was never going to play much. A freshman who was behind me on the depth chart at the beginning of the season, passed me midway through the season so I saw no playing time the last half of the year. I never had a problem balancing school and football, but I found myself bringing football, to school. During class and while taking tests, I was thinking about football and why everything had gone terribly wrong suddenly.
I never scored a touchdown for my team but it was amazing blocking for my quarterback and running back. I was never on the first string. I never got to see a
To end, my personal experience with football has been rough and has been smooth too. I started playing football when I was five and when I was seven and started on my flag football team, I loved it. I started at running back along with Dane Anden and we tore up the league, we were the fastest on my team, and we were the MVP’s of the championship that year. The year after that I suffered my first concussion. I missed a month of school and missed all of my wrestling season.
Throughout my life football has by far been the biggest passion of mine. I watch the games that are on every thursday, sunday, and monday on the NFL and I watch the games every Saturday that are for the NCAA. I’ve been playing football since I was in kindergarten whether it was just screwing around with friends, playing on a team in a league, or playing for the school, and I have always loved it. Through my whole life there have been moments where my passion for football was so strong that I grew a love for it. One particular moment was when I scored my first ever touchdown for a league team.
Football has always been part of life starting when I was a little boy. It wasa real long time ago I could not remember much but I do remember all of theexcitement and the yelling and at times the crying that feeling of some sort ofdepression when your team loses the play, the ball gets intercepted or fumbledand even losing the game. But on the other hand you have the feeling of victorythe feeling of your team getting the ball or picks it up after the fumble and thesense of relief if it was your own team who fumbled it. My favorite feeling is thefeeling of revenge or a touchdown that wins the game. When I was about 10 Istated to noticed a team that began to stand out and with that team I havebecome to realize that one of my favorite if not
