My first time Frankie and I had wrestled against each other it was during the first tournament during the season in the semi-finals. The match was a very close one it was a five point to three point match which he had won. Frankie had just dominated the match with his strength and not by his wrestling ability it just made me realize I had to work harder in wrestling practice and the weight
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. This is just another reason that these athletes deserve to be
This leads to a much better connection. An excuse people will use is that they don’t like the other players on the team. When you are working together and trying to win games, you will automatically connect with them. It will even give something to talk about next time you see them. It is a great way to make connections with not only teammates, but also coaches.
Many people don't think that driving almost everyday to play a sport is ideal, but I have developed some of the greatest friendships through playing soccer. My teammates, teammates friends, coaches, parents, and people who want nothing else but to see me strive and have helped me grow into the athlete I am today. With being a high level athlete comes the risk of getting injured. Over the years I have had many injuries, some more sever than others; but almost all have required physical therapy. For some people, this rehabilitation is not easy to stick to and requires lots of mental and physical motivation.
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
High school coaches should not be required to give equal playing time to all players who make the team. Kids in society have been handed things their entire life. There has been little to no sense of accomplishment after earning a spot or position on a team. Spots should be earned by being the best at what someone does, not for pitty and for moral victories to make them feel good. “In high school, kids should understand playing time is earned.
Quickly, I realized that both of my opponents could hit the ball farther than me and I began to forget my father's guidance of playing conservatively, in an attempt to keep up with them. I began hitting my more inconsistent clubs, hoping for longer yardage. This method of “Go Big or Go Home” didn’t work out very well because after the first day I was losing by three strokes to Cooper and losing by four strokes to the freshman. After telling my dad how the first day had gone, he told me that I needed to play my own golf game and not worry about them. This would mean sacrificing yardage for a better score, something I was willing to do.
As seen in the picture my junior year I was finally on varsity. I didn’t expect to play or contribute much, I was just happy to be on the team. The third game rolls around and were playing one of the best teams in the league, if not the state. So, i 'm expecting to go in once were down by thirty or so and i 'll have fun playing the garbage minutes.
These hopes did not turn out as planned the transition was tough and once again I felt alone when I signed up from my school team. Again I was the only African American who signed up for the team and out of fear of being known as the “ black kid on the team” I did not join. With my club the feelings were different, my team had just started to play competitive and the lonely feeling began to drift. Little by little I began to see more people like me, and saw that they were also going against the norm of a sport belonging to Latinos. My first year in high school and competitive soccer taught me valuable things and those helped me answer the question that was still being asked to kids like
We ended up playing in the championship game on Sunday. We played the Rising Stars. They were all just as talented as us so it all came down to whoever plays the hardest. We had a different starting lineup this game. Jack replaced Drew.
Students from all over the country have dreams of playing a college sport because the chance of them playing professional sports would increase tremendously. These students have put a lot of effort and time in training for competitions in the games they play in addition to that they are obligated to keep up with their academicals. They have suffered along the way with multiple injuries that led to early retirement and shattered dreams. Even though college
