In the story it describes each game as if you where right there watching it live. For example in one of their last games it gets intense and nerve racking, the author writes this perfectly giving the effect of suspense. For example on page 180 it states,” The pass was right on target, and Winnie gathered it in at the ten-yard line and scampered over the goal. Larry never saw it. A tackler crashed into him the moment he let go of the ball, and he went down in a heap. But the roar from the Marlin State grandstand told the story, and Larry was smiling when he got up in time to see Winnie leaping, both hands stretched high in the air, in the end zone.” Having a good description in your story really elevates the novel to a whole new level. It intrigues the reader and pulls them in to read more. Running scared needs to stay in the media center because more people need to discover how wonderful it is to find excellent detail in a

Ever Since Todd Marinovich was a little baby, his father began training him to be a great football player. Even the baby food consisted of liver and protein! His father pushed him out of his carriage early so that he would stand early and develop strong legs. Didn’t let the baby in carriage. He had to learn how to walk early.
In “No More Dead Dogs” Wallace Wallace was known as the hero who won the championship for his team. He was only a benchwarmer and the coach had thrown him in the game. This caused some kids who didn’t watch or care for football (like the kids in the play) to hate him because all he did to win it was dive on a fumble in the end zone while they worked hard every day to become the hero and don’t get respect. Then he was given detention. When Wallace walks
Fans are screaming and cameras are flashing as the football leaves the quarterback 's hand. The spiraling balls seems to float through the air, meant to be caught by only one man, but just before the ball finds the pair of hands it was meant for Thomas Henderson pulls it out of the air and takes off. Once the ball is in Hendersons grasp, no one can take it from him as he dances past the opposing team into the endzone. Thomas Henderson was an incredibly effective football player and now he is an equally, if not more effective public speaker. Henderson is no stranger to to poverty and hardship.
In “Why We Run” the author expresses that there is “nothing quite so savage, and so wild” as running. I think the author is trying to tell me that running makes him feel free. The author describes, “I get choked up when I see a kid, or anyone else, fighting hopeless odds- someone who goes out there to run the lonely roads with a dream in the heart, a gleam in the eye, and a goal in mind.” This author is indicating that he knows the only way people will be able to reach their goal is if they train hard and never take their eyes off the goal they are determined to reach.

this ties to when he said that jaguars don't have feelings. This also foreshadows the plot later in the story quite a bit. But yet again it's kind of ironic to say that the best sport in the world is only 1 sided, the hunted isn't having a whole lot of fun when someone is trying to hunt them. And this is already implied heavily even in the title of all places. In the title of “The Most Dangerous Game” it might just sound like any edgy title but when your done reading the story you can clearly see that the plot has been foreshadowed the entire time.

We see this on page 63 when Jem, Scout, and Dill run away after Arthur Radley shoots his gun. They run away, because they fear that they might get shot by “Boo” Radley. This is one of my proofs on how fear makes these chrcters choose their options. Another proof of this is how they express their fears separately. Page 42 is when Scout shows her fear, when she stays frozen when she reaizes whose house she bumped into while in the tire.
To accomplish this, the men are forced to participate and train others in “The Art of Running.” In this chapter, Goffman depicts the constant cat and mouse game of running for freedom as a community interaction. A successful run is the accomplishment of many, not just the wanted man. From the neighbor who notifies him, to the church friend that hides him in her closet three blocks away, the community does what it can to protect their young men. Not all men are successful, some are caught and for most, running is only one form of
