Football holds its fans together as a huge and tight community. Fans wear same gears to the game, go to after parties and even make friends during the games. Yes, there is a reason why people claim that college is the best part of his or hers life! On the other hand, the fact that the NFL game is on Sunday makes some working people prefer to watch it on TV instead of going. The teams have fans from it own region most of the time.
First and foremost, one of the most influential people in my life, that I have never met, just have watched him throughout the years from afar, is Tim Tebow. Tim Tebow was one of the greatest college football players to ever play the game, he had a stint in the NFL, and now he is pursuing another childhood dream of his of playing Major League Baseball. In college, Tebow’s fire and intensity and just the way he respected the game, put me in awe, I fell in love. Before he even got to the National Championship game, a few weeks earlier, he and the Gators lost to Ole Miss. After the loss to Ole Miss, he held a press conference and stated, “To the fans and everybody in Gator Nation, I'm sorry," Tebow said that day.
Leigh Ann had been a cheerleader and her daughter Collins was cheerleader for the football team at school. To integrate Michael even more they want him to play football. After seeing him on a training session they found out that Michael had never done much sports in his life. The biggest reason why they took him in on the team was because he was big and strong but, they start think about if it was a good choice to do that and it was the trainer Coach Cotton who had started all this because it was him that wanted Michael to start on this school. Coach Cotton was about to give up Michael something that Leigh Ann could not accept.
The hard part was to find one that would give me a tryout. I ended up making a team called the Spanish town football club they weren’t the best but they taught me a lot about the game I spent a year there. My next task was to get on my prep school team who were ranked #7 in the whole nation at the time. I remember the night before open tryouts because all I was thinking about was me not making it. I was an only child but I had a cousin who was a year older me he taught a lot.
In homecoming week they do something called spirit week. In spirit they allow you to dress up and show your school spirit. They have a homecoming football game which is so fun because you have people coming out to support your school. They also all teachers to show their spirit and dress up. They have students running for homecoming king and queen, which is competitive to see who will take over the crown.
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

Michael Oher had an amazing career. First, he was homeless and now he became such a wonderful offensive tackle in the National Football League (NFL). “I would have dreams all the time about me playing in the NFL.

The football team resembles our school in a positive way even when we lose. The showmanship and good sportsmanship will always fall back own our institution. However our football team is not the only thing that resembles our school at the football games. Also we as the students have a major role by supporting our school brand and our football team. When the bleachers are barely filled at the games it show how little effort and support that our students care to give to the players who do their best to be victorious.
We lost the first game, but after that we won all the other games to go the championship. It was a team we played often and we knew they would bring competition to the field. We won the game and the tournament, the score was 10-4. They handed us the trophy and they said the next tournament was in Corpus. All the tournaments were every week, so when we got back home, we practiced Monday through Thursday.
