Then from then on out I grew to love the sport of football. When I was around nine years old my dad enrolled me into the Duck Creek Pop Warner Football league where for the first time, I would play for an actual organized team. I was so excited to begin to play actual football from my years of playing around with my friends throwing the ball around or watching the games with my dad. Growing up with my brother we would play football together on an awkward one against one game where I wasn’t allowed to tackle him because he was younger than me and my parents didn’t want him to be hurt. Up until this time I also didn’t know how to tackle a ball carrier.
The first time on a football field and i was very hyped about it cause i got to play and the coach put me as starter because i was the biggest one on the field. The very first play we got sacked but are left lineman didn't stop the ball they got pushed over and we got sacked. The ball was on the 25 yard line and we were trying to get to the fifteen yard line to get the first down and we were short 10 yards but we could still get cause if we work hard you play hard.
Fast forward to the Fall of 2014, and I am in my 3rd yr in football, and I was killing it. I was starting cornerback, andwe won a championship. And I just went to Tennessee for a football tournament with kids that were a grade above me. Everything was going so well for me, but the one thing I was missing was a touchdown.
Before the 5th Grade I played football, for club teams, however, I did not ‘love’ it. That was until I met my two closest friends or my only friends for that year and the year after that. I had met these kids in the previous years and we were also on the same football club, however, we were not ‘close friends’. I became friends with these kids through a good game of pickup football on a Sunday. I don’t remember how or what, but on that day, Julian and Thomas became some of the best friends I have ever had.
I was excited to see who went to tryouts to see how the team would work out together. The coach didn’t let me start but had let me play in the game later on in the quarter. I did the plays and wanted to prove I should be on the team they passed me the ball because I was open. I took the shot and made a touchdown.
Tony Nathan grew up in Alabama where he loved to play sports. When he was in high school he tried to quit the football time. However, Tony’s mother Louise Nathan did not let him and took him straight to the head coach and asked for Tony’s spot back. He was accepted back where he played at safety. But one game changed that; he went from hardly playing to in on every offensive snap.
Jaiden DeBose Humanities/Hanson Nov: 22,16 EA…………… The 80 yard touchdown run I always thought football would be really really hard and I would be the only kid that couldn 't score a touchdown,but that all changed on a single big run. It was a Saturday morning and I was getting ready for my second big game.
My primary position on the junior varsity team was quarterback. Although we had many outstanding athletes, our first season was far from successful; however, my eighth and ninth grade years, we went undefeated in football. In middle school, I continued my baseball career with the school; yet, my desire to be on the diamond shifted more towards football. Sports brought a glorious feeling into my life in middle school; on the other hand, not everything turned out the way I had expected, for a tragic event changed my life forever. Something horrendous occurred to my close friend, Payton Mitchell.
Football to me is just a chance to hit someone down. Football is a way to meet new people. I was a receiver and I loved catching the ball and running for the touchdown. Touchdowns were the best thing that I could do when I played football.
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. Every day I woke up, I said to myself.. I'm going to work hard.. to get to that next level.” (“Michael Oher
The second I was on the field I knew my team had the game won. All I could see around me was a group of men ready for war. I couldn’t be more ready for my last home opener so after I did what I do when the unexplainable happens, accept it. I ran to the 45 to the 35 to the 20, hoping to find the kick returner. 8 months waiting for this moment all the sweat, pain, 100 degree sun beaming UV rays to my face.
Introduction It was the beginning of my 5th grade school year, and I decided that I wanted to begin a new sport. On the first day of practice, having never played the sport, our coach lined us all up on the field. Our team had a quarterback from the previous year that was returning, but he had no one to back him up this season. As coach Link stood back to examine his future team, unexpectedly, he pointed at me and said, “you are going to play quarterback”. Excited, reflecting back, it was one of the best moments of my life.

The best leader I’ve worked with was my Junior High Football coach. My coach used the Path-Goal Theory. I hated football and saw no future for me in that sport. I was teased and literally quit the year before at a different school. I heard about try outs at another school and decided to go.
Football had a major impact on my life, playing football helped me to communicate with others creating an brotherly bond with my fellow teammates. Playing this sport taught me a lot like size doesn't matter, it's all about hard work and dedication like it's your last time playing on the field. Football showed me how to be mentally and physically strong, to be a leader and lead by example. This sport became apart of my life being apart of the community and making my town happy, I love playing this sport and being with my teammates because even when there is time it's an easy day my teammates always push me to do my best so I can get better every time I'm on the field. Football helped me to care about others and to do what I have to help my
