And others were agreeing so we ran out and Sam was QB, Caden Arntz was running back, and i was wide receiver Ready… Set…. i was getting nervous but i took a deep breath hit! Then sam handed it to Caden then i started sprinted then Caden handed it to me then i sprinted then everyone realised that i had the ball and i was running up the sidelines 50..40..30..20.. But then the other team’s player started to come after me then as he was getting closer sweat went down my eye and it stinted really bad but then he was about to tackle me then i stopped and he ran through then i ran all the way to the end zone then i realized that we were only down 12-14 in the 3rd
The gun went off and I began my run. I knew that it would be long and I knew that if I get really sick, I would finish it no matter what, even if it involved me walking the race. I began the first 5km following the 01:50 pacer, I wanted to follow the 1:45 but I gave up on the idea due to my sore throat at the beginning. It felt easy, I could still feel pain in my throat but I ignored it and continued. I didn't let it get in my way.
( Magnetic resonance imaging) My mom and I were anxious to find out if any ligament was torn in my knee. As the doctor came in I could feel the downcast he brought into the room. His was low and soft, “ I´m sorry, but you have torn your meniscus, the recovery time is only 4 weeks so you should be back to gymnastics soon.¨ Gymnastics was all I ever needed, my first meet was two weeks away from the surgery date. I was in shock, it may not seem like a big deal, but for a gymnast it was everything. The morning of the surgery went well, I was nervous but also excited to just get back to my life.
My coach in turn, began screaming back at him telling him to “grow up” and other things of that manner. After the brief and explosive exchange between my goalie partner and the bench he skated back to the net to begin play. Once he had left and play had begun, I told my coach that I thought I should be put in net, I was fairly certain my partner was not in the right head space to be playing. My coach promptly refused and conveyed that he believed that my goalie partner should have to stay in net and dig himself out of the hole he created for himself. I told the coach that I didn’t think that was a good idea and that I should be put in just temporarily so that the other goalie could calm down and regroup, but my coach refused this also.
Because it was at this moment, he understood the main issue with the Vs. This would have given him the correct approach and enough time to take corrective actions in this area, before the start of National Championship. If Coach P. chose to switch few individuals within the teams, he is likely to face reluctance as the JVs will feel they are “sent down” and Vs will not get along with the JVs. Also, it was difficult make the choice as all the tests were in favour of the Vs. Alternatively, it was too late in the day to still work on improvement of the Vs performance. More so because, after his last attempt to discuss the matter, his best 8 rowers in Varsity have split, felt dejected and
My poor study skills came crushing down on me and hard. The day came when I was to get the official word that I made the team. I woke up that morning and walked over to the field to get ready for practice. I put on my helmet and pads only to be greeted by my coach with a very somber look on his face and hands out stretched saying not today Richard. I received your report card and your grade will not allow you to play.
Thoughts were running wild as I thought about my team going on to play without me. I couldn 't figure out why I had to let the team handle the game without me. I had played with them all season and some for a few previous years and when they needed me the most, all I was able to do was watch from a TV. I hated the feeling of helplessness that I had, but at the same time I knew there was nothing I could do about it. It was the end of the first half of the game towards the end of the season.
Most would say it’s because I was born in the suburbs I went to private school but they didn’t know deep down we all have struggles within ourselves. Other kids that weren’t as fortunate as me saw me as cocky. Only time they respected me was when they saw what I can do with a ball at my feet. At the age of three I picked up my first soccer ball that’s when I found out what love was. At the age of five I saw a team in England play their name was Manchester united the manager was the great Sir Alex Ferguson I then came to the realization that they played the exact type of football I loved fast and physical with a great passing game.
Right after we won the game we got to go to the senior football game right after our game they lost but they tried there hardest to win cause they were working hard and they got a lot of
Learning about Mother Teresa, involving myself in the politics, and going through a rough recovery of my knee, I have found my optimism and hope to influence others because it can benefit the world in a remarkable way. When I was 11 years old I had a knee surgery where I had to stay strong no matter how bad the injury was. So after I was done with my surgery I thought of all the negative things that could have happened to my knee if I had not done the surgery. Every day I woke up and thought of how to get better as soon as possible. The biggest fear I had while resting my knee was that I could never play soccer again the way I used to.
