That is a huge part of what keeps their athletics going. Next, Trevor’s position at Denver is an unpaid assistant coaching position; therefore, he does this as a volunteer because he cares about the kids he coaches that he is willing to take no paycheck. Because this is his dream, he is willing to take an unpaid position and get the chance to change kids lives through coaching. The people who have inspired him to have and pursue this dream have really pushed him to go for it.

In his dream his grandfather makes him open up an envelope that has a state seal on it. He reads it out loud and the short message that was engraved in gold said "To Whom It May Concern, Keep This Nigger-Boy Running". In other words, the narrator is always going to be on the run, no matter how hard he tries to fit into the white-world. Although, he received a scholarship afterwards it didn 't mean that he would change the way a white person would view him. It was just a form to deceive him into thinking that he does fit in, but in reality all he is doing is comforting into what the white people want of him without noticing
Coach Boone had a mandatory or highly encouraged training camp set up prior to the football season. At this training camp players bonded and learned to trusted one another no matter what the color each teammate. Many hardships followed the training camps, but only from the other side of the ball and socially. Other teams that were not integrated still showed their biases, but this did not stop the Titans. As they continued to win on the field the community and families accepted change and embraced it.
As a child, Bayard believed his father was a brave, courageous, honest man. Later in his life, Bayard looks back at his idea of acceptance and belief during his childhood; “There is a limit to what a child can accept, assimilate; not to what it can believe because a child can believe anything given time, but to what it can accept a limit on time, at the very time which nourishes the believing of incredible” (66). Bayard understood and believed that murder was wrong, he believed that stealing wrong, but he was unwilling to accept that his own father could have done such unhonorable acts. Instead, he twists his own experience and only accepts slivers of data in order to protect the image of his father. The “ limit to what a child can accept” impacts the evidence Bayard acquired by observations and stories of his father.

It is not just words on a page, this book is an inspirational, heart-warming, and sad book. This is book is about how a boy finds love in running and soon achieves his goals.When he first started running he thought it was stupid and there was no point. He starts devoting himself to the sport and is determined to achieve any goal he sets. When he was feeling broken down by someone trying to get his hopes down, his older brother, Pete would always give him inspirational quotes like, “ A minute of pain is a lifetime of glory” or “If I can take it, I can make it.” These small, simple quotes may not have everything, but it definitely pushed Louie to try his best and never give up. From the running to the quotes, this novel comes together and makes an amazing biography.
Also, due to the “game” his father created, when he was released from the camp his innocence was in tact making him able to live a normal life and have a beautiful family. God had a plan for Joshua and Eliezer and without the provisions from God neither of them would have been able to make it out
Johnny face his decision and myself think he did the right thing and why myself also think johnny the hero of this story because also who can keep a lot of his friends together and would help any of his friends if they asked or can deal with his parents beating and screaming at him and never lose hope of running away or leaving his friends and giving up and myself know this isn 't even related to this johnny went through some stuff that never should 've happened to him and now back to the story a hero is someone who is brave and has no limit at stopping at what they believe in, now you might think dallas or pony boy could have been a better hero but in my perspective they both had done stupid stuff like pony did he fell asleep in the parking lot and didn 't come and dally was worried and then he hit him that made him run away with johnny and that hurt johnny and because pony had to hang out with cheery and the other that were socs and the put them in a bad situation and that made it bad because that led to johnny having to pony and that 's not a hero it might not of been his fault if didn 't run away, and dallas could not have been the hero because with all of his fight and stuff and time in jail plus what type of hero slash peoples tires because they 're mad at

Drew’s beard can be interpreted as a sign of manliness being as he hadn’t grown one until college. But instead of changing his entire life due to college, he just eased into adopting the new maturity required of him at CWU (and grew a beard). Drew will probably just continue to gradually change and never truly have a life-changing moment that defines who he is because he’s extremely adaptive and will live like he wants and if he does have a coming of age moment in his future it will only change him for the better. Drew will continue to do great things. Whether it’s playing football or color commentating it, he’ll be amazing in whatever field he chooses because of his athleticism and kind disposition.

I think Gatsby follows his real Father. As we find out after Gatsby dies his father wasn’t dead and he always knew that, but he never wanted anyone else to. I also believe that Gatsby is very confident that he will always be rich and has no problem saying he is a son of God, who is powerful and all knowing. I think Gatsby has been trying to prove himself to Daisy but also his father this entire book because he wanted to show that he could make a man of himself without anyones help. Fitzgerald gained a sense of credibility from making the allusion to the Bible.
