so i was just gonna be aggressive with him the whole time. He finally got me in the open court and everyone cleared out it was just me and him in the backcourt. Swear dripping down my face i knew thus is where I can make or break the game. Right here right now. The crowd went silent.
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.
I knew I had to hit a good move so I went for a headlock and got it but the referee called it a pin when the buzzer went out so I had lost by a point. Even though I lost I knew I had gotten into his head mentally because I didn’t see him since he ran into the locker room mad because I had embarrassed him and since he knew he was very lucky to get the win. Since I knew I had one or two more chance to wrestle Nerine in the state tournament in two weeks I felt I had brought him down a little bit mentally which I could use to
The team I played for was called the Jonesboro Wildcats. It’s one of the sixteen football teams in the recreational league for the county I live in. The recreational football team I played for had won the championship the previous year, and were looking for a repeat. The head coach, Coach Buchannan had asked the league commissioner for me to be traded to his team before the season started.
I was putting in the work at practice, getting lots of reps in at point guard, and really getting to know the sets better. Then Gavin got hurt and a part of me wad down because he was getting on a roll and helping the team win but the competitive side of me was thinking that now is my chance to make my mark and to get some varsity minutes. We played Maquoketa and I didn’t get in the game. Little down about that and the fact that we lost to Maquoketa who we beat last time by more than 25 points, but it was there freshman who punched us in the stomach when he mad a last second shot to beat us by one. Gavin was back the next day at practice and my spirit was dead.
My primary position on the junior varsity team was quarterback. Although we had many outstanding athletes, our first season was far from successful; however, my eighth and ninth grade years, we went undefeated in football. In middle school, I continued my baseball career with the school; yet, my desire to be on the diamond shifted more towards football. Sports brought a glorious feeling into my life in middle school; on the other hand, not everything turned out the way I had expected, for a tragic event changed my life forever. Something horrendous occurred to my close friend, Payton Mitchell.
The home football team was expected to win on Friday night, through the whole first half they were up 41-0. The coaches warned the players to keep their mind focused on the game until the very end. Ignoring their coaches advice, during halftime they laughed and joked around in the locker room assuming they had already won the game. However, during the second half of the game the visiting team that was down by 41 points came back and tied up the game leaving fans of both teams biting their finger nails in suspense as the two tams battled it out.
I tried out for the football team and i made it and i got on the A team. The problem was that everyone thought that i would be on the B team so I started to feel bad. Everyone was thinking that I would do really bad at our first game. I was nervous but I was also ready to play.
So I choose the second option at first it wasn't worth it. Because I was, working so hard ever day and I still wasn't starting until one practice I did really good on scout defense for the starting offense that the head coach gave me a chance to start that week. I did really well during the game and earned my starting spot which was the turning point for me in football because I learned not everything is given to you sometimes you have to work extremely hard to get what you want. This lesson is something I don't just use for football, but
One of the many changes that Coach Shambaugh made was hiring Coach Garett for the linemen. Coach Garett was exactly what the line needed he pushed us to expect more from ourselves and work harder. Now I am done playing football, I will never put on my pads again. I will never play another snap. During my time as a football player, I grew a lot.
Texas is known for its agricultural landscape but most of all by Friday night Football. In small town communities like Dimmitt being on the varsity team is a big deal. Being moved to Junior Varsity football after making the varsity team, put me in a position to contemplate my loyalty to the sport and to the coaches I felt betrayed me. It's the first day of two-a-days, and I was put on the varsity team for middle linebacker.
On the Friday we moved in to Vail, at our hall meeting, our RA asked who wanted to do a flag football team. Most of us were interested and so our whole hall made a team. The games started in September and continued to October. They were almost every week. We did really well and won a lot more games than most of us thought we would.
My experiences on the Silverado flag football team where good so I was happy that my brother decided to play, it was my brothers first game and I was carrying the ez up that we would bring to every game. We looked for somewhere to sit and my mom pointed towards you and your mom, I was a little hesitant at first but we ended up sitting with you guys.
