Football is a great sport to teach young boys to work for what they want which is winning the game and eventually taking the championship. When my child plays football, he will gain character and that he can use that to benefit him on life skills. Although some would argue that their child cannot play football because it's too dangerous and is a great cause of concussions or any type of injuries, parents also need to understand the viewpoint of their children. Understanding they want to do and extracurricular activities they want to be a part of.
The South got the victory over the North Saturday in the 42nd annual Lions All-Star football game at Tracy High School's Wayne Schneider Stadium. But, perhaps an asterisk should be put next to its 51-38 win. To prevent a blowout, when a team has more than a nine point lead, the losing team will receive the ball after every touchdown, regardless of who scores. That rule gave the South extra possessions, which helped it fight back from a 38-21 halftime deficit. “That rule just killed all of our momentum,” said a frustrated Zerek Saldivar following the game.
That's very close to them getting a touchdown to close out the game 12 or 14 to nothing and we wouldn't be able to win but at that moment they pitched the ball to the outside back and he ran to the left and then I hit him… Then the ball went flying out and Keegan Shelke picked it up and ran it back for a touchdown and then the game was finally 6-6. We would now have a chance to take the lead and win this very important game.
Lanre Sadiq Pamela Rollins ENGL 1302 February 25, 2018. Concussions in Football Football among other sports is a game that requires perseverance, hard work, risks and maximum determination. Millions of people all over the world are aware of football, and a number of them have taken part in it. However, the sport had no limitations and filled with on contacts.
Concussions are very dangerous, regardless if the effects are long term or short term, so they should be taken seriously. Football is known as a violent and barbaric sport among modern society due to all the injuries that have happened in the course of its history. Among all mainstream sports, football averages the most head injuries recorded in seasons across the nation. ((((According to Brainline, concussions in football make up 60 percent of injuries among all high school competitive sports (“Concussions and”)))). Ultimately, football is the most dangerous sport among all mainstream sports in both highschool and professional
We suffer more injuries and more concussions than any other sport. People or some may look at us like we’re nothing. It’s hard to throw a touchdown pass but try throwing and catching a body before it crashes. What makes it even more dangerous is that we don’t have face masks. Put yourself in our position and see how long you can last.
However, deaths have increased from concussion accidents. A concussion mostly comes from football players that are running very quickly, is the rate of concussion going up. If football players don’t run as quick then it would cut down some of the concussion rates. Bleeding in the brain killed a lot of males
I did well at corner-back too where I tipped a pass and I got two tackles. So I was ready to help the RB’s score a touchdown, and I was in the huddle When all of a sudden, my QB told me that I was going to get the ball on a counter play. I got really nervous when he told me this, But when I lined up for the play I remember what Bugs told me, and I got really confident. When he gave me the ball, I ran as fast as I could and juked out one kid, then trucked over another kid, and I was running away from at least 5 players ahead of me.
Another argument is that children engage in dangerous behaviors every day; if football is banned, then so should biking and other exercises. Football isn’t the only risky activity that kids do: they run, climb, and jump off anything in which they can hit their heads. So why shouldn’t they play football? Also, some argue that a child can heal much better than an adult so when they do injure themselves, they will heal completely. The research is still inconclusive due to how little we know about the brain, so this reasoning has valuable intentions, but no solid
Levido added the extras for the Bears to lead 10-2 after 27 minutes. North Sydney were well on top making strong metres up the middle, which allowed the backs plenty of room on the edges. A nicely weighted cross kick from Levido was marked by Burgess in the corner for the Englishman’s second of the day. Wyong came back and attacked the Bears try line but again they came up empty handed.
Palmer finished the game with six turnovers. Larry Fitzgerald, who has been the NFL’s most reliable receiver over the last decade, had two wide-open drops. The Panthers’ defense held the Cardinal’s terrific wide receiving trio of Fitzgerald, John Brown, and Michael Floyd to a combined 80 receiving yards. Led by Luke Kuechly, their linebackers flustered the Cardinals’ offense. Palmer was routinely under pressure.
“Concussions are potentially one of the most serious, yet the most difficult to diagnose injury in sports,” (Hossler A1). MIllions of high schoolers play football each year, yet, at most, 10 people die each year from the sport. Why do kids keep playing it then? Most of them like it because of the physical aspect, being able to hit other people and is also a good way to keep fit. They also get enjoyment out of it because it’s fun.
McAfee kicks off, deep into the end zone and caught by Holiday, and he’s taking it out, he spins off of Adams and is untouched, he’s turning on the afterburners here, and he’s off to the races! And it’s a TOUCHDOWN by Holiday! Extra point attempt is good by Mcmanus. That’s a heck of a play there to end the first half. The score is tied seven to seven.
Well, with Fowler out for the year, Williams will cruise to the defensive rookie of the year award. With the loss of Sheldon Richardson (Suspension), the Jets will need Williams to step up in a big way, and I think he will. He’s going to see a lot of one on one matchups from opposing offensive lines, something that will result in a lot of sacks and tackles for loss.
