He takes another chance on his running career, and begins training: “But without extending himself, he began clocking miles in 4:18, just two seconds slower than the winning time of the Zamperini Invitational that he’d seen in March. He was coming all the way back.” (359) Here you can see that even after war, Louie slowly starts to become himself again. However, it’s not easy as a war veteran to return to normal life. Louie found his past haunting him in his dreams like a ghost. He turned to alcohol, making the people around him concerned.

It is also more common for athletes who play football or basketball to go pro than in any other college sport. Athletes who play football or basketball are at a higher risk of career ending injuries. These two sports are the hardest on an athletes body. Only one out of twenty-five college athletes go pro, so why put your body at risk when you don’t receive anything for doing that and your chances of going pro are slim? A lot of these student athletes are stressed out because of schoolwork participating in a college sport.
Adolf Hitler was so stunned and angry that Owens had successfully defeated his German people, that he even walked out of the stadium. In all the United States won eleven gold medals in the 1936 Berlin Olympics, six of them were won by African American athletes. Jesse Owens and the U.S.A. Olympic Team returned to America as heroes, they were even honored with a ticker tape parade in New York City. Even though Owens helped the U.S. win at the Olympics, he was treated badly because of his skin color. He had to sit in the back of the bus just like any other African American at the time, and he also couldn’t live where he wanted to live.
Lastly, if you play sports all throughout your time in school without concentrating on your grades and it turns out you aren’t good enough to become a paid professional athlete, you are left with nothing to help you succeed in the real world. Even some of the best athletes ever careers get cut short. One example of this is Bo Jackson. He very well might have been the greatest athlete of all time, but his career was cut shorts because he got injured. So if you ever want to be like Bo Jackson and play with the professionals, just make sure you have a backup plan like an
Should a person get paid just for showing up for there a job and not actually doing anything? Should they also get paid the same amount even if another co-worker is better at their job? Just because someone shows up and participates, doesn’t not mean they deserve the same treatment as everyone else. Some parents and athletes believe equal playing time for all sports and activities is deserved all through their middle school and high school careers. 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.
It was right out of college, so he probably hadn’t thought about becoming a political leader yet. The only thing that would make him work there was his beliefs that these children deserved an education, even though they were colored. It would take a very strongly held set of beliefs to make him work so hard to help and teach these children. This is a clear example of the principled beliefs L.B.J. held

His job, as he sees it, is to use any means possible to push students to achieve more than is expected of them. (Macnab, Geoffrey: The Independent) Macnab makes a good point that Fletcher ideas about how to teach might be different from typical means of teaching but he just wanted the students to push past their walls and do something spectacular with their craft. Neiman never grow up with a father figure that pushed him. His dad was content but also uncertain about Neimans
3. When Derek was released from jail, he had an enlightened and reformed ideology. He tried convincing his brother to follow in his footsteps of becoming a new instead of making the same mistakes he did. In an attempt to ensure his brother would be the man Derek couldn’t be, he made numerous efforts to convince him of the equality amongst races and why they would be seen as equal and on the same level as their race, as opposed to the common inferior perception they were initially
Going into college, athletics were always first priority to me; but after being a regular starter on my soccer team entering my junior year, my priorities were completely reversed. My first two years of college saw me as one of four players (out of a class of 22 players) to be on the varsity soccer team, meaning that I was exposed to long bus rides, missing classes for team events, and constantly being a lesson behind other students in my class. I had trouble balancing soccer, work, and school during that time, as I was only able to maintain a 3.1 GPA. I decided that putting all my effort in soccer was not the correct route to take, as school was going to lead me further in life. For the next two seasons, I was on a
I could hear voices, but I could not articulate any words. I ignored the pull of gravity and the screaming of my body and lunged forward. All the while the only thought I could produce was, “Why am I doing this?” I started cross-country freshman year. In middle school, I had played on the school football team. But being 5 foot 5 inches tall and ninety pounds, did not really equate to football.
