My favorite sport is football. I have always liked football ever since I was a kid. I played football during my middle school years and also my high school years. I was injured during my high school game against the Bernalillo Spartans. I remember that game like it was yesterday.
One of the players took the game so hard that he did not want to come together with the team. Coach Newton said to everyone,” Keep your heads up every one of us are winners in his book.” As I play football today the quote my coach gave me to keep in my head helps me with a lot. When I turned 17 I got the quote tattooed on my chest so if I am doing something and I try to give up it makes me grind harder. I never give up on something I love or like to do. I want to make history in my school and in collage and etc.
Now my senior year all my hard work has payed off as I am a starter on the defense and special teams. I know that just as I did, the underclassmen are struggling with all their might so they can snatch the starting spot from under me. Understanding that I must begin every practice as if my job were on the line I go out onto the field every day with a fiery passion. Although I
“I don 't want people losing respect for me as a player. I want to go out in every game and perform to the highest level. I have no retirement plans. I 've had a lot of injuries but I want to continue playing.”- Robbie Fowler. When we were children our mothers and fathers would take care of us.
When playing at the Citadel, that is all Pat deals with. At the start of his senior year, he had very little chance of playing, but he never quit and he worked his way back into a starting role. He states, "I had fought my way back from despair and self-loathing, from a coach who screamed, 'Don't shoot!' every time I touched the ball" (Conroy 326). Through it all, Pat remained unconquerable.
While a team’s fourth and final preseason game is the most “meaningless” of them all, it has become the most important for both Tebow and Barkley. “I don’t feel any pressure at all,” Barkley told USA Today. “I don’t think it’s anything except an exciting opportunity. I’ve been in this place before to have to impress and move the ball down the field.” Tebow seemed equally enthusiastic as well saying that he is not “more nervous”, adding that “I always get excited, nervous for every time I step foot on the field for practice or a game.” There were reports that Kelly is adamant that he will not keep both quarterbacks in the final roster. Some have even said that the 51-year-old coach might not choose either of them at all depending on the available quarterbacks that is going to be released by others teams come deadline
Many individuals experience different amounts of failure in their lifetimes. Many learn and grow from their defeats and others let it keep them from succeeding. I made sure that failure was another obstacle to success. Icons like Randy moss didn’t let failure get the best of him when he didn’t make the freshman high school football team, and look at him now, he is one of the best Football players of all time. In the seventh grade I played football for the Brockton Ravens.
I was tall and skinny, not big and bulky. After that year I told myself that would never happen again, so I started focusing on becoming a better athlete and trying to understand the sport. By eighth grade I was starting on defence and playing backup running back, which I did not mind at all. Playing the positions I liked, but then a team mate got
I don 't march anywhere or play an instrument outside of band class or at my house, but band taught me that even when you think it 's too tough, you need to keep working at it until you can do it no matter what it takes. I never saw the point of working hard for something that 's so irrelevant, until I saw the entrance to the Alamodome for state marching contest and figured that even tho this is one of the hardest things i 've ever done, I was glad that me and the other forty or so people i 'm glad to call my friends and family all worked hard together and individually to get us where we are today. Knowing that I have benefited from this experience makes everything about it, the practices, the heat, the overall toughness that I endured was all worth it for me and my future. Without band I wouldn 't have a set level of endurance I have now and a level to which I work hard to reach whenever I do something that doesn 't
To me it represents sports. My life has always and will always be surrounded by sports. Ever since I could walk, I have been on a field, in a court, or in a gym. I have played multiple sports throughout my life, but lacrosse and football have been the most influential. My family has always been huge advocates around the idea of playing sports.
Notre Dame is so centered around the faith and the people on campus get so involved, especially in the events such as Notre Dame vision. Of course who thinks about Notre Dame and doesn 't think about football? I have always loved football, and Notre Dame football at that. I am so excited to become a part of that, whether it be playing or just cheering. So from faith to football the culture at Notre Dame is what makes it stand out from other institutions to me.
My career goals in life is either to play professional football (NFL), become a physical therapist, be a high school football coach, or take over my father’s business. Ever since I was a young child I loved watching football and playing it too it would mean the world to me if I went to play in the national football league (NFL). I love to run and try to stay fit my health is very important to me I like to discipline myself in everything I do athletically and also academically. I take pride in everything I do. I always enjoy overcoming a challenge that has stretched me to my limits.
To be honest, it can suck and I felt like quitting after my sophomore year, but I reminded myself how much it meant to me. I thought about how much my life revolved around football, and how much my parents wanted to watch me play. I can tell you now, that I feel completely stupid for even thinking about quitting. RIght now I would not trade High School football for anything in the world. There is just something about being with my team, which has become more like a family to me.We
