Soccer brought me out my kind of addiction to video games which were my life during my childhood. Soccer got me outside and around people more to socialize. It was not easy for me at first to just go and join the soccer team after not playing any sport since I was around seven years old. I worked hard for about a year before I joined the high school team. I spent many hours outside for many days to get into shape and fit enough to play for long periods of time.
A failure can be a downward spiral or a setback turning into a benefit. When athletes experience head trauma, they only recover a little, which might end their career early or other times people never recover. In the case of my four month concussion, there are residual mental and physical problems. For me, this challenge helped me develop as a person than will work harder and strive for the best in my academics. Running onto the field, I can 't believe we won it - the High School Girls ' Rugby Championship.
These are the kids that truly make a team better, they are unselfish and, like to share the puck. Weightlifting, practice, and shooting pucks are just another part of an ordinary day for them. College hockey is a attainable goal for these feisty, hard working athletes. On our hockey team, we have multiple people I would consider feisty hockey players. Occasionally we play teams like St.
As soon as I started my routine I knew it was going to be good because I felt like a little feather on the bar, then I had landed perfectly this what I was dreaming of this meet was just going so well, nothing could have better. Once we got beam thing changed a little one of our best girls Sam had fallen of the beam. The worst thing is she did not just fall. She fell and broke her leg this was one of the worst things that could have happened. As a team, we would just have to move on I was up on the beam now.
In fact, my outlook was amazing; there were three elite meets that season, each with a limit of runners on my team that would be taken. Then, tragedy struck the team; three of our fastest girls were injured and out for the season. Now, I wasn’t happy about them being sidelined, but it did finally give me a chance to recover my placement from the beginning of sophomore year. I wanted to help lead the team to state, and with what my coach had previously said, it didn’t appear to be too far out of my reach. However, “too far” should have been followed by an asterisk, as my season soon spiraled out of my
That summer, I felt good and I was doing well with the running and I thought this would be the year. Again, my dreams were crushed as I didn’t make varsity and also was forced to switch positions and lost my starting spot at the beginning of the season. I had fallen far from being a freshman playing on JV to as a junior losing my starting spot to a freshman playing JV. Oh, the irony. It was after that season that I realized, that through the first 3 years of my high school soccer career, I had been trying to please someone and I wasn’t focused on enjoying what was in front of me.
I am studying very hard to accomplish my dream of coaching. I would love to coach the same high school I played in for four years. I played soccer at Nacogdoches high school. This time marks the best times of my life so far. I will never forget the experience of playing competitive soccer and represent my school .
When I was younger I always wanted to be just like my older brother, Mikey. His senior year he got offered a soccer scholarship and seeing him achieve his goal made me strive to become just as good as he was so I could do what he did and make him proud of me. However, he was unable to finish college, since he was unable to finish I feel like I owe it to him to do what he was unable to do. Having an older brother that shares the same passion as me has helped me significantly. He has always encouraged me to become the best I can be.
What Football means to me Think about the time in your life when you had no worries, and you just focused on having fun. For most people, that time is childhood. I was a happy child who enjoyed the companionship of friends, but most of all, I enjoyed football. I had started out playing soccer, but gave it up for football. I decided to try the sport after I realized all of my friends were having so much fun playing.
The concussion wasn’t all bad. Yes, it brought out the worst in me, but it made me see what truly mattered in life. By becoming a lesser version of myself, I realized who I didn’t want to be. More importantly, I saw the type of person I needed to become. It was, and still is, a complicated and difficult issue, but I learned hard lessons that many of my peers won’t understand until later in life.
