My Soccer History I believe a lot of students in BC school knew that I’m interested in soccer and able to play it pretty well since we had a lot of games with Mr. Misquith last year. I would consider myself as a helpful player since I am able to play several positions in the field, with Striker and Center Back the positions that I’m good at. In this article, I will briefly discuss my soccer history from my childhood and let more people know me. The first time I heard of soccer was 12 years ago when I was in kindergarten.
is As a senior in high school I was cut from my Varsity volleyball team. This had a huge affect on me, I was devastated. Anyone who knows me, knows that volleyball is my world. I was cut for being "uncoachable" which is an odd way of defining someone who has been a dedicated student-athlete for years. I sat on this for weeks, trying to figure out what I should do.
During my eleventh grade year of high school, I played soccer. First off, before you can play soccer you have to learn the language of the sport so you will understand how to play, what the coach is saying, and where you are supposed to be on the field. Before I started playing soccer, I thought it was just kicking a black and white ball into a goal. I quickly realized that you have an entire athletic language to learn in order to play soccer.
As athletes, we always feel invincible. No matter what I was told, I was fully convinced that a serious injury can’t happen to me. One day, when I least expected it, it happened to me. During my last soccer game as a freshman, I moved wrong. That one step challenged me with the idea of never playing again.
Chumps to Champs As soon as I laid my eyes upon my new team I knew that they were going to need a tremendous amount of work. Most of the team was in seventh grade, I was one of the three eighth graders. That year not many girls tried out. Most girls at my school thought that if you played girls basketball you were lesbian, this was incorrect.
I remember blankly staring at the field hockey field retracing my past year. I did not understand how I could be on the junior varsity team for a third year after receiving the most valuable player award the previous season. I thought it was supposed to improve from there, but I was mistaken. I knew beforehand that those three days of tryouts could define my entire season, but in my mind it was not an option to be on junior varsity again.
Almost Making It Happen I expected to get a few bruises, but not a getting a concussion. Before the soccer game, my idea of a concussion was getting bumped in the head, receive headaches, and it would heal up in a week and then you would go back to the way you were. I was wrong. At times, concussions can be deadly, and if you have them more than once, it will decrease your chance of keeping your brain healthy and surviving. Concussions can also give you migraines and make you dizzy.
Lacking self-confidence can decrease one's' eager to learn, ability to focus, and the wish to take risks. I've always been a person who was shy and lacked self-confidence. Even if everyone else thought I was the best at something, I somehow found my way to feeling self-doubted. I tried blocking out the doubt several times, but I just don't happen to feel myself.
“Whooo!” The crowd goes wild with excitement. We jump for joy as we score another goal. The soccer ball slashes the net with a hard enough kick to go straight through. Lexi and I scream with excitement knowing we just tied the score two to two with only 3 minutes left in the game.
Ibrahim Alami Mrs. Yoder English 101 6 February 2018 Where Home is for Me Where is Home? Everybody has different hobbies that he or she would like to do for excitement or relaxation. They can be either physical activities like jogging, skateboarding... or mental activities like reading, watching movies, playing computers game or what not, listening to music... and it just depends on each personality honestly. But, for me, soccer is my hobby because it 's part of my life and I cannot live without it.
“Matt,y you will be starting forward now,” Mr. K. said right before I nervously stepped onto the field, sweating like a man in a sauna. The whole summer I practiced soccer with my dad for two hours a day to make the team my sixth grade year. I wasn’t looking to start, I was just looking to make the team. While my friends were at the beach or at friend’s house, I would be playing soccer.
Texas is known for its agricultural landscape but most of all by Friday night Football. In small town communities like Dimmitt being on the varsity team is a big deal. Being moved to Junior Varsity football after making the varsity team, put me in a position to contemplate my loyalty to the sport and to the coaches I felt betrayed me. It's the first day of two-a-days, and I was put on the varsity team for middle linebacker.
I am applying for the exemplary student athletic trainer award because I believe I am in many ways worthy of it. This award is given to exemplary student athletic trainer which fits my description perfectly. Like the 2015 winner mentioned in her speech, “We come before they do, we leave after they do, and if you don’t believe, you don’t belong, we are, we are the team behind the team,”. That motto is what’s helped keep me pushing along as an exemplary trainer. Ever since the seventh grade when I started attending my brother’s varsity football games, I began to notice the group of student trainers at games
