As I may be athletic and played in the regional tournament I wanna be remembered for something more then that, I wanna be remembered for who I am as a person, my traits could have played into this as I am the person to make people laugh when down, or always joking around and happy, alone side that I am hardworking and I want my teachers to always remember me for that as I work hard day in and out during school. I am very outgoing which means I make lots of friends, from baseball I made friends from Delaware, Tennessee, Maryland, New York, and more and I hope one day I am remembered as the kid who didnt care where you where from or who you where he would always try to talk to you because he was always looking for new friends and loved
Others it can be their ticket to college, and getting scholarships for what they can offer to that college team. But is having an unfair advantage really the way to get to play that sport? What about the student athletes who work hard everyday and show their skills with the help of steroids? Many student athletes over the country use Anabolic steroids because they feel like they need to make quick muscle and endurance gains. For example high school football athletes need to be strong and fast to get those touchdowns.
Studies show that college level professionals can focus more on their sport than their grades not out of enjoyment or wanting to improve themselves, but rather from the belief that they need to do so to fit into some social construct. For this very reason many athletes don’t make it far through their college education and profession. Most either stop the sport and continue on or drop from the college due to failing grades and this causes damage to that person’s life that cannot be amended. This focus from all of the stereotypes made on them also pressure them to excel at their sport and push them too far. They could become stressed or anxious and this could lead to a multitude of other physical and mental problems.
Similar to adversity, success is much easier to manage with the support of a team. Individual success can lead a person to be conceited, but teammates serve as a barrier to help you walk the line between confidence and arrogance. Learning how to be confident in yourself without crossing the line into arrogance is a tremendously large part of learning to deal with success. Athletics have also taught me that satisfaction can lead to complacency and complacency leads to failure. I have learned how to celebrate a success while recognizing and remaining critical of my own mistakes.
Each player should get the same amount of money not that much but a enough to get by. In conclusion, College basketball players should take the right steps with money. College basketball athletes should be paid because they put their bodies at risk at risk, they also don’t have money, and they skip classes. College basketball players basketball work harder than ever to make it to march madness. They workout a lot to stay fit and to play better.
I will likely be the starting center for the Wheaton College men’s basketball team this season. However, the honor of starting for the basketball team is not nearly as important to me as it once was. More than the honor of awards and the glory of personal recognition, I can now appreciate what basketball has taught me about myself. I have learned that I crave competitive environments, even ones where I am not the most gifted or talented. My basketball experience has also taught me to enjoy intense preparation and working with a team toward a common goal, even when there is little personal reward or recognition to be found.
As Graff continues his essay he says that he was on the side of being more anti-intellectual and he found that through sports he was more interested in sports then he was in school. He would use this love for sports to build up his hidden intellectualism with sports. I think that Graff is right about what he is talking about with how we as a society think if you want to be smart them you need to do well in school and get all A’s or then you are not that smart. In all reality there are many times that kids go through school and don’t do well not because they are not smart,but because people don’t
However, if students have to maintain satisfactory grades to participate in sports, these acts will lesson and create a better future for many student athletes. Supporters agree that middle school and high school students should have to meet a grade requirement to participate in sports, however some disagree, stating middle school and high school students should not have to meet a grade requirement to participate in sports. It is evident, that middle school and high school students should have to meet a requirement to participate in sports. One justification to prove that middle school and high school students should have to meet a grade requirement to participate in sports is that students who play sports do not always get full athletic scholarships. Sports colleges who give out scholarships, don’t just look for athletic ability but academic too.
There is such thing as healthy competition. Kids need competition, but not to much. When more pressure is put on from coaches during a game it makes the game two times more competitive. It is really tough for coaches to be able to tell if the pressure it is affecting the kids but they have to be cautious because their words mean a lot. During game action coaches have the most influence on
“You guys were amazing out there today. You played like a team, and you all played with your hearts, and you all wanted to win.” Coach Maggie said as the chills on her arms and legs became visible. We all worked so hard, and we were tired and sweaty, but it was all worth
It was my turn to take charge as a leader for this team, but I letting everything just go bye. What is a leader, a leader is someone who has a vission and passion and should not be afraid of any problems, insted, he should know how to defeat it. I didnt know how to defeat it, no one did. We got lost, caught up in the hype, glory, and the relentless pressure to stay on top, insted of working for that championship ring, we were just waiting for someone to put on for us. The Trinity basketball program was founded on certain ideals, but those ideals were drounded.
One that turned out to be true is I thought the whole team was going to care a lot more than in high school. It was weird to me to see some kids not really care. At the D3 level anyone can play, so you have some kids that are talented and got recruited, but don’t really like to work. They’re more caught up into doing college things, instead of really caring about
