Football helped me stay out of trouble because I knew I had to maintain my grades and my gpa couldn’t go any lower than a 2.5. Football became a very strong passion that I carried on. I remember this one time my coach had put in our first quarter back and he got the ball and was running then got tackled and the referee called a penalty on us. The referee said we receive the foul. At that point I was very mad because that one little mistake altered our whole game.
To me football is like a second family (simile. When freshmen football lifting started I decided that was going to work as hard as I could to be my best. So, that is what I did all school year and all summer I put a ton of effort into becoming the best football play I could be. One of the most important experiences of my life was my starting in my first varsity football game, it taught me that hard work always pays off, and changed the way that I look at life.
These experiences shaped me into the person I am today. Football is more than a sport, it is something that is a significant artifact to myself as well as my family. My father and mother were raised on the earlier stages of football. Just as I was, these two grew up watching football every weekend with there own family. My father and grandfather were the only ones in his family that enjoyed watching football.
From sports to academics I always tried my best in hopes that my little brothers were watching so they could mimic my hard work. Traits I possessed at such a young age are extremely uncommon but, being a good role model to my brothers was bigger than me. Entering my senior year in high school, I had advanced to two state championships in two different sports; football and wrestling. My youngest brother, being as curious as he was, would often attend all of my games. He would study my every move as I ran up and down the football field, hoping that he would be able to follow in my footsteps someday.
I pass on these lessons because sometimes in life you need motivation whether it’s from a grown up or a teen like myself. You also need good life skills or people in life might try to take advantage of you. Even tho coach Cunningham has passed away I feel like he’s still watching over me and guiding me in a way. Without coach Cunningham I would’ve probably not known half the stuff I know or have most of the life skills I have.Coach Cunningham was such a great person because not only did he teach me football he taught me tons of stuff I would actually need in the real world and I thank him for
1. Over the past decade, there has been a growing concern over whether or not children should play football. This has become such a crucial question that divorced couples are taking the issue to court. Mr. and Mrs. Orsini have two polar views when it comes to allowing their son to play football. Mr. Orsini understands that studies indicate how playing the sport can cause concussions and other significant brain damage in children while Mrs.Orsini believes that her son is old enough to understand the risks of playing football and if that is what he desires than she should not stop him.
The first day of tryouts was almost over the coaches got all of us together and put us in to scrimmage teams. At first I was really nervous I didn 't want to mess up but we started to play and a started to do what I did best which is play my game after we played a was pretty convenient in my performance but we still had the whole
Making cameo appearances from the bench was not a joy for a football player. At a point I taught of quitting but then again the child inside me wanted me to go on, to fight harder and I did just that. I started putting extra hours in training, watching the senior team play and was very keen on whatever it was my coach had to say. During all
Going to this process of learning the rules and kicking the ball right, football began to be my number one sport and hobby. Later on, when I turned twelve years old, my dream was to be a famous football player like david beckham or ronaldinho and etc. Although, my dream to be a football players has been changed many times. As a teenager, children 's future dreams changes in many different categories, because at this kind of age we really don’t know what makes us happy and what we really like to do. Let’s say you are given only one day and you must be happy on that day.
My high school was not the best, and the environments that I was around where not the best. Mistakes I have made have built me as a person in many ways.This is a time in my life I will never forget, but its a good thing that I knew soon it would turn into an amazing thing. My Jr year of high school i was very amazed that they would classify me as that but I went along with it. I had made it a goal to my self that I would be more about football than anything besides my class work. On the football team i played Free Safety even though my main position was Slot receiver.
