Today I want to explain the many ways my grandpa is a hero to me .My grandpa has always supported me and pushed me to be the best at everything I do, and taught me to never give up. Body I. My grandpa, Harold, is a hero to me because no matter what I do, if its playing a sport or learning in the classroom, he would push me to be the best. A. A lot of people have their parents to push them to be the best, but growing up my dad left when I was 2, so my grandpa became my father figure.
Coach Cotton was about to give up Michael something that Leigh Ann could not accept. She did it her way and showed him how it should be done. Now Michael knew what he should do, but it was in the first match that really knew what he should do when Coach Cotton said that he would take care of this boy as if it were his own. The football team had struggled a lot in the past years to win the league. The team became the best in the league and all the best colleges wanted to have Michael on their football team.
To me football is like a second family (simile. When freshmen football lifting started I decided that was going to work as hard as I could to be my best. So, that is what I did all school year and all summer I put a ton of effort into becoming the best football play I could be. One of the most important experiences of my life was my starting in my first varsity football game, it taught me that hard work always pays off, and changed the way that I look at life.
John Witherspoon stated, “You win some, you lose some, but you LIVE, you LIVE to fight another day!” As a fan of football I have to keep this statement in my head. Time after time I would watch CAU get defeated by teams that, but I still had faith that one game we would be victorious. As the season continued I began to start seeing fewer students at the games to support our players, and I began to question my own faith in our team. CAU’s students should support and have faith in CAU’s football team, because a true fan never loses faith in their team, the players work hard and try their best, and CAU is their Alma Mater. Deep down inside I can say that I am true fan of CAU’s football team.
Richard Sherman, after being inspired by his own role model, subsequently used his football fame to create a foundation that supports and motivates young inner city youth to overcome obstacles. When Richard Sherman was a young man, NBA superstar Magic Johnson made a visit to his high school to talk to the students about the importance of staying in school, goal setting and developing a strategy to achieve your goals. This encounter with Magic Johnson planted a seed within Richard Sherman to not only develop individual goals but also create an incentive to impact the community in a very meaningful way. This directly resulted in Sherman using his popularity as a NFL star to give back to his and other low income communities by starting a foundation called Blanket Coverage. (Sherman, R. n.d.).
There are three things a football player should always do while learning the fundamentals. The first thing is to study your playbook This is one of the most important things because it’s impossible to learn something if you don’t study it and that really stuck to my head as I gotten further into my high school year. Studying my playbook has really prepared me for future games because this gave me the knowledge of what I’m suppose to do when I’m on the field. That being done has taught me a lot about the importance of studying
Team players have started to reduce in the modern sports era. Many players have become self-centered, even in team sports. High school athletes always want their names in the paper or want to get acknowledged by coaches or friends, but true team players do things that many people do not see. They may lead by example during practice or do little things that make a difference in the game. Linemen, on a football team, are great examples of this because the quarterback, running backs, and wide receivers get all the credit for great plays and touchdowns, while linemen have to block the three-hundred-pound man in front of them every time, or the play will get blown up.
I pass on these lessons because sometimes in life you need motivation whether it’s from a grown up or a teen like myself. You also need good life skills or people in life might try to take advantage of you. Even tho coach Cunningham has passed away I feel like he’s still watching over me and guiding me in a way. Without coach Cunningham I would’ve probably not known half the stuff I know or have most of the life skills I have.Coach Cunningham was such a great person because not only did he teach me football he taught me tons of stuff I would actually need in the real world and I thank him for
Students in class will work hard and want to do their work. Students will want to turn in work on time. That way they can keep their grade’s high as possible. For example if i wanted to be a member of the football team at chancellor high school i would not only want to strive on the field but also i would need to do well in the classroom by getting C and
The first day of practice I absolutely loved the game. It was important at the time because it was my first time trying it and I absolutely loved it. It had a long impact on my life because I still play it to this day and travel around the state with my travel team just to play football. It also taught me teamwork and how to work with other people to accomplish big things. 4th
