Arnold is put in the game, but again he is injured and knocked unconcious by his best friend Rowdy. Reardan High School loses the game and Arnold ends up in the hospital. After this tragic loss, Arnold the coach and his team felt the loss more personal. The next game was taken place in Reardan and the surprise was that Arnold became the star of the game scoring the first three pointer of the game, the first three points of the game that automatically defeated the Wellpinit team physiologically. The Reardan team won that game but Arnold felt bad for the Wellpinit team he felt bad that he defeated his own blood but mostly he felt bad because he knew what the future was for both teams.
All I hear is the crowd roaring. And all the sudden i’m hit out of bounds for a gain of 48 yards. Half time hits as the score is Dallas 28 and Patriots 34. Coach starts talking about the game and how we need to make a comeback, but all I can think about is the expression on the defender's face. The anger and tense on his face was unbelievable.
Boston had been robbed by the Minnesotans of their desired NCAA Men’s Hockey Championship title in 1979. During the first full day of practice, O’Callahan (Boston) and McClanahan (Minnesota) duked it out on ice on full display for the entire team and coaches. Brooks allowed the fight to ensue for a while, but eventually made the analogy of “two chimpanzees humping a football” to the two fighters (Miracle). This comment sobered the two up and they were able to agree to disagree. That was one of the most profound transformations.
I love basketball because I am terrible at it. Despite my 6’ 0” stature, it seems that my brother stole any natural ability I might have had. Every morsel of skill I have has been worked and paid for with each drop of sweat spilt during the fourth rebound drill, each painful bruise I collect after being caught with a flying elbow, and each ragged breath I take trying to outsprint my teammate. Basketball, for me, is a challenge. Ever since I was a child I have loved a good challenge; I craved everything from riddles to difficult math problems.
Stanley Yelnats (whose name is palindromic), a boy who always seems to be in all the wrong place at all the wrong time, finds himself brought to Camp Green Lake after being accused of stealing a pair of sneakers from a famous basketball player. Although actually, the sneakers had just fallen out from the sky and landed on top of his head. Stanley believes his bad luck dates back to his great-great-great Grandfather, Elya Yelnats. Elya Yelnats was
In this show Friday Night Lights, the quarterback, Jason Street, was in the middle of one of the most important high school football game of his life. He made a mistake by reading the defense incorrectly, making him throw an interception. With all the pressure his coaches put on him and his frustration, he ran up to the defender, without being taught the correct tackling technique, and broke his neck just to be paralyzed for the rest of his life. His family could not afford to pay for all the medical bills, so they did what they had to do. They sued the coach for not teaching him how to tackle because the coaches got too caught up in the years before when they won championships, feeling like winning was their only responsibility in the city of Dillon,
It knocked the wind out of Cody; all he could do was gasp beneath Ezra 's warm, bony weight.” He just shot her mother with an arrow (Tyler) “In Cody 's version, it was Ezra 's mistrust and interference that actually caused their mother 's injury, but it was he who was blamed for it. Cody devotes the rest of his life to evening the score: playing practical jokes on Ezra, hiding his belongings, manufacturing evidence against him, and finally stealing his fiancee. This last betrayal, in particular, replicates Pearl 's long-ago injury, especially in its traumatic effect on everyone involved” (Sweeney 11). Cody 's memory of the archery incident, then, continues to shape his sense of his own identity and of his relationship to his younger
So, when sophomore year came around I was prepared for a season of a lot of minutes and a lot of basketball. But, that 's not how it went. I got some minutes but I was held to a higher standard than all the other players so I would often get benched for the smallest of mistakes. I was frustrated and the joy started to come out of basketball. Then as my junior year came around my next sticking moment came.
Junior’s Determination Authors give their characters many different character traits that are shown throughout the whole story. The author Sherman Alexie Showed this with her characters in the book The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian. One of his characters Junior was seen as determined. Junior is a very determined person because he switched schools to get a better education, he continued playing in the basketball game after being injured, and he was able to not let Rowdy score points by guarding him. Junior is determined because he switched schools to get a better education.
Something funny that came out of that was when Darrall was deep in foul trouble, 4 fouls on only Chamberlain, he shouted at one of the referees “ Well, why don’t you just give the guy [one] hundred and we’ll all go home!” Sure enough he did just that. After Wilt had heard that he was going hard for the triple digits. Because of this very game the NBA had changed the lane (paint) from twelve feet wide to sixteen feet wide. With the third quarter coming to an end, Wilt racked twenty-eight, adding on to his 41 is 69 points from just the three quarters he’s been in. “The Big Dipper” scored his 80th point with 7:51 left on the clock.
I looked around there were flags we had not been set long enough. That brought the ball back with .07 seconds and we snapped it john took my spot and snapped me the ball i was stuck there was no hole to run through so john pushed me in the process of being crushed i fell backwards. We lost. We went and did the usual thing after and in the huddle everyone was mad that i didn
One of them was when Harlan was angry at himself for missing two free throws that almost made his team lose. Harlan wanted to cry and he was really beating himself up for it.Another example is when Harlan thought that he could never became a good center in basketball. He was really struggling with his game and in his mind he wanted to quit. In,”Angel Park Hoop Stars 3”, the point of view was written in 3rd Person Limited because you the reader could only know the thoughts and feelings of Harlan. I know it was third person because it used words like, he and they.
While the defense walks back to the sideline everyones jumping on me like I’m famous. Then a couple more drives later I get a tackle and then Mark catches a interception, so when I blocked for him I blind sided somebody. Coach tells us that if we could just get one stop we are going to win.
I stood in awe as I heard the crowd going insane. My teammates tackled me celebrating, leaving the ball in the back of the net and the goalie with her head between her hands. The scoreboard ticked the last few seconds away before letting out a sound of excitement that was prior a sound of disappointment. Losing in the sectional finals was devastating, but it motivated me in the off season. Coaches always say “we can learn from this loss” and I never took it seriously.
Growing up watching sports, it was always hard to see your favorite player or a player on your favorite team get hurt. Watching them carry their team on their back and all of a sudden they are out of season for at least six weeks. As a fan, it always hurt because the team needed him as much as the fans love to watch him play. Derrick Rose is an outstanding basketball player, fast, smart and efficient but his NBA career has been riddled with knee injuries one after the other. Each time he comes back he is less of a player than he was before.
