In 2008, I played football for the Boyertown Optimist Football League. I can remember that year of football like it was yesterday, and I had some of the toughest, but best coaches that I ever had. Playing football is a tough sport that requires a lot of physical and mental endurance, and my coaches did not take anything lightly when either me or my teammates made a mistake. If the play was supposed to start on a count of two, but someone moved on the count of one, then the whole team would have to run laps around the field. I can remember being in the back field as a running back, and when a lineman would have a false start, our head coach would yell in a rage of fury.
I took a nap and missed some of my next class. She then wrote me a pass and this is really why I was late. It was sad to know that this really never came true and I never actually met them and never actually scored a touchdown. I kind of ruined my day, but I will always be ready to learn
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.
I never give up in football because I’ve seen some crazy games where teams are down by 10 with a minute left and they come back and win. Additionally, I never give up is because if I start looking like I am sad that we are going to lose I know my team will also think that because I am the captain of the team. Besides I hate not giving 100% in any sport because I know that I could have done better and maybe helped my team win if we lost or if we won by 6. When I know that we are playing a hard team I will always tell my teammates that we can beat them or act like we can because, that we make my teammates be happy and play better in all aspects of that
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. Football was everything to me that 's the only time you would see me watching tv when football is on. Not only that even when i 'm playing a video games it would only be football.
I had so much fun. I use to play football at recess, but now we do not have recess.in the fourth grade I had a chance for sports and I did basketball and football and track. I really did not like the couches so I dropped out of it so I just stared to do track and football. In football I did not do so well in tryouts I got a wide receiver and running back and I really wanted to be a QB. 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.
Every person faces a type of adversity at some point during their lifetime, and in that instance, he or she can choose to give up or persevere. In high school, I was on the football team. Everyday we had to push ourselves in each aspect of the sport, whether it be patience, discipline, endurance, etc. Whenever I got into the sport, I knew that it would not be easy, but I had no idea the amount of work that I would have to put into it to be successful. I started playing football in 8th grade, but the real work began when I got to varsity football.
American Football is something typical mostly to the United States, in the past I did not even see the ball. During first days in the USA I was not interested in it at all. I was thinking, it is not even a sport. Just a bunch of guys who fight with each other, get their bones broken and earn millions of dollars for that, but my friends Zion and Steve helped me to broke that stereotype inside me. One day during my PE class they suggested me to
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.
Showing grit is a common thing for all people in sports, but one that has really stuck to me was middle school football to now. When seventh grade football started, Coach was looking at kids for certain positions and he said my name first. I instantly perked up ready to get any position on the team, but when he said I was playing second team center I was crushed. I never played on the line before. I was tall and skinny, not big and bulky.
So one day I talked to Coach Minnich, and he said, “You are a good athlete, but can’t show it if you play quarterback.” I said, “ I know that, and I want to be on the field”. So I finally moved to wide receiver,WR, and could finally play safety. Coach Minnich would come to me in practice and just say,” Couldn’t do this playing quarterback”. He is the reason why I became the player I am today. He gave me a shot at something new.
I was going to all the practices, giving it my all and once again I did not play in the game. I was dishearten and I began to question myself. If I was not playing because I’m not experienced like the rest or If it was because I’m much shorter than everyone else. I was self doubting myself If I was even good enough to be on the team.I was not going to quit and the next game came faster than I expected. Thursday night and for the third time in a row I was not mentioned in the starting line up.
He said I would start varsity as a freshman and I would become better at football. So when the first day of the season came, I went to the first practice. After the first I wanted to quit. My whole entire body was sore and I was exhausted. I stuck it out and realized that the sport isn 't bad at all.
I am a student in Lopez Early College High School and I am in the varsity football team. Last year in the 2014-2015 football season we the team went 0-10. That means that we went 0 wins and 10 losses. Last year we were a bunch of sophomores in the varsity team and as a team in general we were not experienced in playing in a varsity game, since we really went from the freshman football team straight to the varsity football team. I remember that when we played Los Fresno my sophomore we lost to them extremely bad, I remember the score being 72-0.
