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. And I thought to myself “oh my god” because at the time, I was like 4 foot 7, and they were like 5 foot 2.
In our first offensive play, I passed to a midfielder, he got past an opponent forward, and kicked horizontally from the right corner of the field. Though, our opponent’s goalie managed to take the ball into his hands before Josh had a chance to kick the ball into the goal. Somehow, our defense held pretty firmly as both the teams went back and forth in attempting to score goals. A critical play was made
When my favorite basketball team, the Boston Celtics, played in their season opening game on October 17th, I would not have dreamt that I would be leaving the room in tears after having flashbacks of the biggest setback in my lifetime. Celtics player Gordon Hayward suffered a serious leg injury early in the game. While many people were disappointed that one of the Celtics’ best players was injured, I sympathized for Gordon because I truly understood what he was going through. The biggest setback of my life came on September 1, 2015, just before my sophomore year of high school. It was a humid morning in Lawrence, Massachusetts as our second football scrimmage of the year was set to begin.
But nothing really happened until late in the 4th we went on defense they would try to waste time so they can win the game but they were near the end zone with 1:52 left and it was 3rd&6 and they handed it off to their running back Ethan Harrington and I ran up and saw a perfect way i could strip the ball then i ran up and grabbed the ball the stripped the ball right off his hands then the ball went up then went on my feet then i fell onto the ball and recovered it and I was so proud I've save us from losing the game but everyone else started to get on top of me then ref put those hands to our side the fans went nuts!! And everyone was celebrating so we quickly went on offence handed I quickly handed it off to Sam and he ran really all the way to the 22 yard line with :22 seconds left and coach called a timeout but we used it all and i began to get scared that we were going to lose the game but I realized that they added an extra timeout It said that in the rule book they added one extra timeout but, the other team's coach were denying the fact that there was an extra timeout. So the ref called the owner and told him about the new rule and he said yes they did added the new rule and the other teams coaches were shouting no that can't be right and so we quickly handed it off to me thei sprinted running outside but I tried to go out of bounds until 2 seconds left. And everyone was saying that we are going to fall short but I told them” no that all this year we have been working our butts off and deserve this win” and so I knew it was the same play but going to the inside and I looked around in the inside but it was bunched up so when I snapped the ball I took a fake step inside and sprinted outside and dove in the end zone for the game winning touchdown i couldn't believe that we won 18-14! The fans really loud like it was the super bowl and everyone even the coaches came to the
Then the game started, we played hard but it came down to the wire. A 14-14 game to 16. It was time to put the clamps on, no points allowed. They passed the ball around the key carelessly, and I took advantage of it. I went out picked off one of the passes and all of a sudden we now had the upper hand in the game that would send us to the championship.
In fact, with Portland firing on all cylinders at just the right time, they may quietly be one of the most dangerous teams as the playoffs approach. Projected Playoff Seed: 3 New Orleans Pelicans (39-28) Current Seed: 6 As a franchise that’s no stranger to mascot changes, management should probably just go ahead and rebrand themselves as the New Orleans Anthony Davis’. When frontcourt running mate DeMarcus Cousins went down with a season-ending Achilles injury, many (including myself) counted the Pelicans out. Instead, Davis has gone on an absolute tear that has his team winning seven out of their last 10 and firmly entrenched in the battle for a top 4 seed in the ever-competitive Western Conference. Regardless of whether Davis will have enough help around him to create serious playoff chaos without Cousins is yet to be determined, but he’ll certainly have built a strong case for MVP along the way nonetheless.
All I hear is the crowd roaring. And all the sudden i’m hit out of bounds for a gain of 48 yards. Half time hits as the score is Dallas 28 and Patriots 34. Coach starts talking about the game and how we need to make a comeback, but all I can think about is the expression on the defender's face. The anger and tense on his face was unbelievable.
After that moment everything went downhill. The team continued to make errors upon errors and the game was suddenly tied. We hanged for over time. The refs told us to play the golden rule, and that is simply saying that whoever makes the first goal wins. Two minutes into the game and Cullman scores the winning goal.
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.
I got in the last few minutes of the game. We were winning by around twenty points so there was no way we were going to lose. When I got the ball for the first time, I was in the three point line, and I decided to shoot. When the balls left my hand, the defender from the other team knocked me on to the floor. When I stood up, everyone was screaming.
