Since I can remember, my mind has been consumed and controlled by one thing and one thing only, football. Football has driven me to not only work hard to achieve my goals, but has made me become a better person, athlete, and teammate. Starting way before kindergarten, I played in a Little Tykes League where I learned the ins and outs of football. From the first game in LTL, I dreamt of playing college football and I was going to do whatever it took to achieve that goal. Although of course the game wasn’t as intricate at that age and the pads weren’t as heavy, I knew I was apart of something greater and I wanted to never quit doing it.
I realized after I continued to play after middle school it would mostly likely keep spiraling out in to my future. In high school I played for New Iberia Senior High. In my high school years my position was a outside line backer. Everyone has that one thing or person that they go to to get away or to stay out of trouble mine was football. Football helped me stay out of trouble because I knew I had to maintain my grades and my gpa couldn’t go any lower than a 2.5.

There are different levels to football in the United States from high school, to college, and then the pros. College football draws as much attention as professional football, because there are so many schools with teams and the plays that are made involve just as much excitement. In the United States college football reached the point of handing out scholarships to high school students that play the game well enough to compete at the highest level. Many high school students dream of receiving this opportunity and will play there absolute hardest to achieve this no matter the obstacle. I played this game for many years with the hopes of reaching the professional level.
All Experiences have different effects on people. In this case the experience that I had was significant. I have been playing and watching football for as long as I can remember. Football has always been a major part of my life, and I always looked up to the Varsity players wanting to be one of them some day. To me football is like a second family (simile.
She was a cheer leader in high school and would cheer for her team every Friday. Her love of football came from her own experiences with the game of football itself. When my parents made a family of their own it was only natural that they started their own routine of football. From the time my brothers and I were born every weekend meant there was football. As my brothers and I grew up we learned more and more about football.
During my childhood, when I was five to six years old, I started to play football with my brother. It was a hard challenge for me to kick a ball having a short legs and small feet. However, I kept playing football even though I did not know the rules for it.

Although initially played on village greens and on college fields, the first intercollegiate game took place on 6 November 1869 when Rutgers defeated Princeton 6–4 in a soccer-style game. Five years later, Montreal's McGill University playing at Harvard introduced rugby football, which would be rapidly adopted by eastern teams. Collegiate Development For the first fifty years of football, college teams enjoyed a virtual monopoly of what they called the gridiron (the term applied to the football
From sports to academics I always tried my best in hopes that my little brothers were watching so they could mimic my hard work. Traits I possessed at such a young age are extremely uncommon but, being a good role model to my brothers was bigger than me. Entering my senior year in high school, I had advanced to two state championships in two different sports; football and wrestling. My youngest brother, being as curious as he was, would often attend all of my games. He would study my every move as I ran up and down the football field, hoping that he would be able to follow in my footsteps someday.
During the game, there are lots of hits and collisions happened. Thus, within a contact sport, head injury is inevitable, which is especially true in football. Recently, some researchers describe football as a “boy-killing, man-mutilation, money-making, education-prostituting, gladiatorial sport” (Gladwell). However, football will be continued, since there is no excuse to prohibit from not playing it. Consequently, NFL should set an age restriction for full contact play in youth football because the NFL has a responsibility to reduce players’ concussion risk.
