To me this was unacceptable. How could a capable team like ours manage to lose all hope after one really bad game? Giving up not only reflects the team, but also me. I wanted to inject my philosophy of finding a way to win no matter what restraints are prevalent. After practice I herded the team together for a player’s only meeting.
You may think success is all about winning and that's it buts thats not even close to what it is. To me success is where you achieve a goal or when you work hard and get the outcome you were looking for I mean ya winning is success, but do not understand there is much more to success then just winning. Jocks…. they make me laugh its all sports, sports, sports for them. Not the case for me, the order for me is family, religion, school, sports, and then friends.
The speaker’s team is challenged by its coach in such extremity that a reader could assume that the team is unstoppable. Ironically, the championship game is not representing the coach’s goal of execution, but perfectly fits the other term for execution, which means to put something to an end, and that is what the “downstate team” is doing
However, earning your position, being undeserving of playing time, and coaches trying to win in their respected program are all issues that need to be thought of before people begin fighting for equal playing time. High school coaches should not be required to give equal playing time to all players who make the team. Kids in society have been handed things their entire life. There has been little to no sense of accomplishment after earning a spot or position on a team. Spots should be earned by being the best at what someone does, not for pitty and for moral victories to make them feel good.
My parents have always told me to be friends with people smarter than you they will help you and encourage you to try you best. So yes I would want a friend like Equality if he would help me become a better person. Chapter II 1. Fear is the prevalent emotion in Anthem because the people know nothing else. They say it is a crime to be unhappy but the people of Anthem do not truly know happiness.
It has taught me how to win, and how to lose. Something that in today’s day is overlooked as a skill. I believe that losing is the best teacher in sports, and believe that how an athlete carries themselves after a loss, is the determinant of a winner and a loser. Not in the sport, but in life. Wrestling has also taught me how to lead.
One sentence that reveals his purpose is, “It’s sad to see bright young athletes knowingly compromise their potential and settle for much less education than they deserve.” The last paragraph also shows Petrie’s purpose. He writes, “I can live with the thought of the athletes who knowingly use
Not having entitlement in sports allows everyone an equal chance of earning a varsity spot. It allows athletes to strive harder for success because then they know coach is looking at everyone, not matter their age or name. An athlete also feels better about himself when coach is watching, which can result in more confidence and a better performance. Head coaches need to look at skill level instead of the name or age when it comes to varsity players because they are out there to win, not please people. If an underclassman is truly better than an upperclassman, then the underclassman should receive the opportunity to play above the upperclassman.
Everyone has a game, Enders game is the battle school and his goal was to be the best so people would finally leave him alone. Ender wanted to be so good that no one would dare to challenge him and so no-one would be able to ignore him. Until the teachers started changing the rules. I can relate due to the fact that people made fun of and bullied me and I still do from time to time, but that changed by getting good at sports. I was blessed with a big body and a lot of strength but not much coordination or talent.
So after the tryouts when the kids find out they didn’t make the team they may feel discouraged and quit sports altogether. “Coaches are more likely to take experienced players than walk-ons,” says Bill Pennington, a writer from the New York Times. This means, if experienced players, who had played on the team before come to tryouts they would be chosen over a new player. In the coach’s opinion, it is better to pick a team of experienced players rather than new kids who would like a spot on the team. “...tryouts are not setting good examples by allowing kids to believe others are better and that they’re not good enough,” says Alyssa C. a journalist for the BlueTimes.
When you are a leader of a team, you can’t make decisions based on people’s feelings. You have to know that every decision you make may not be a popular one, but that it’s best for the team. Sometimes Jordan was the one that players feared more than even the coach. B.J Armstrong, who was Jordan’s teammate once said that Jordan knew that he would have to do whatever he had to do to make his teammates raise their stakes that much higher. There is a specific example that stands out to me when I think about Michael Jordan and his leadership.
Manziel has it set in his mind that he is the best and nobody can ever overcome him and with that he is become a bust. I know that with our high school football team I don’t want to be remembered as the kid that had it in him, just wouldn’t put in the effort and was focused on the wrong things. Instead, Mariota is the perfect role model for high school athletes because he never stopped his grind, he did what he set out to do and is only getting better. The way I see it is one can do all the talking and get all the attention in the world but if one doesn’t do anything with it then what 's the point? The way I see it is there is always work to be done, just because I might of reached the goals I’m aiming for, doesn’t mean that’s all for me to do, someone else is working for the same goals as me.
I call it false because his parents, friends and coaches all believed he was this perfect leader on the field and off. Unfortunately, by keeping quiet, I was the only one who knew about his lack of moral values. When I reminisce about my decision today, I believe I made the wrong choice. I believe I had the wrong mindset when I chose to put the team 's success in front of ethics in general. I 'm not proud of my choice because it reflects on my character and morality.
James Harrison is wrong for what he is doing to his sons. Harrison is wrong because he is making his children think that I have to win all time and if I come in second place I am a failure. I do not think Americans give out too many trophies because children should be recognized for their hard work and dedication, even if they don’t win. Americans are not raising their kids to become “too soft”. I think teaching kids that winning is a good thing is fine, but you should also teach kids that it is ok not to come in first place.A better way to acknowledge participation other than a trophy is a certificate or a ribbon .I think when a child gains a trophy they have a better sense of accomplishment and appreciation for their hard and dedication.
One of which is so no problems occurr in the program, because when someone is disrespectful they make others frustrated with them and arguments begin (which is never ever a good thing for a group program). Also, being disrespectful to a peer is downright degrading. You will make people feel bad about themselves, then in return the will give up. If everyone is just respectful to each other things will run more smoothly and the results will be much more positive. But besides from being dedicated and respectful, you also need to be really truly dedicated to what you are doing.
