One of the most artistically and historically striking pieces in the Mead Art Museum of Amherst College is George Wesley Bellows’ crayon and ink depiction of American football. Football, created in 1912 is a bold sketch of two teams mid-play. The main player holding the football is completely airborne and almost separate from the rest of the group who are all in the midst of tackling one another. In the distance, a substantial crowd is visible implying this is an organized event with specific college, club, or professional teams. This artwork, while aesthetically beautiful and well drawn, also speaks to the cultural shift in sports occurring around this time.
I chose the life and career of Peyton Manning as my research paper. Peyton was born on March 24, 1976 in New Orleans, Louisiana. His parents are the already football star Archie Manning and his wife Olivia Peyton. So, Peyton was already born with a football in his hand so to speak. He improved his skills as a football player early on by practicing with his brother’s, dad, and childhood friends at an early age.

I was scrolling through lists on the internet of universities with accelerated soccer programs when I came across the University of Colorado, Colorado Springs. I was intrigued by this school and began searching the internet in an urge to find more out about this school. After doing more research about this university, I talked my parents into taking me back to Colorado Springs to go to a soccer camp. The morning before I had to go to camp, my father took me to Seven Falls, the same place I had been 11 years before. Climbing up the 224 steps to the top was a trip down memory lane as I recalled lots of moments from my
His masterful delivery of these metaphors and the frequent repetition makes the speech much like a poem or a part of a song. This special lyrical and parallel structure helped get his main points across and allows a large audience to understand simple but powerful words (Layfield) . The rhythm and frequent repetition are used to drive home his key points, stressing the importances of his goal. As example, King uses “I have a dream that one day...” and “Let freedom ring..” to open his points on how Americans should change against racial indifferences. Furthermore the King’s parallel structure clarifies and highlights his intent by building up to a more important point.

Nate Powell, Andrew Aydin and John Lewis remarkably put this civil rights movement into great visual detail and well-pieced texts throughout the graphic novel series, “The March”. John Lewis truly put the text into a mass perspective and added great passion into the novels, as well. He has led a great movement and has changed American history, for the best. “The March” graphic series was able to educate me in a more compassionate style and through authors Powell, Aydin and Lewis’ design, I have felt the inspiration that created the movement’s

He along with others were fighting for improvement of Texas schools in a myriad of ways. The primary focuses were compensation of teachers, apt technology within schools, and the quality of the curriculum. Perot also attacked the very heart and soul of high schools in the state, their football programs, with no remorse. He once said “[Legislature] is scratching to put the funds together to keep our school system from being declared unconstitutional, and you’re out there saying, ‘Keep sending that state money because we need to spend our local money on sixteen football coaches and matching shirts for them so we can be the big boy in the district.’” to a principal. (Hobby) This is precisely what the problem was at Permian and other schools in Texas.
Through the adversities that accompany senior year, I have worked hard to propel my academic career, develop my leadership, and to have a successful soccer season. I recently had a conversation with the instructional superintendent, Anthony Smith, and he equated high school with a 400 meter race. As the race concludes and fatigue attacks, I continue to sprint towards my objectives. In the first semester, I applied to seven universities and I was admitted to all of them. I decided and committed to Colorado State University.
