After half Battle came back and turned on the heat. They ended up beating us by 12 points. In a district 's final game that is not a very big win. We were all so depressed after that game, but there was something that i still had, That was my brothers. The game of football made me the man i am today.
Tom, a friend of mine from high school, together we had a great time maybe because we were seniors. In the past seasons, we didn’t have as much fun, going to practice was like going for a punishment especially during conditioning where we had to run for hours and do all sots of drills. With a little fun we turned this the other way round and had the best senior football season. During practice me and Tom, who were both wide receivers just kept on telling jokes which the coaches didn’t like so much but they let it go because we also competed against each other in the process, like whenever we run plays, we would see who could do it faster and more agile, we also had to catch the ball. Some times we pulled off one handed catches just to gain more points.
At the beginning of my ninth grade year I was prone to injury. I went from hip pointers to sprained ankles and was never able to see much playing time. This hurt my morale, because I have always dreamed about becoming the next big shot quarterback that came through Nashville; and with the luck I was having that did not seem likely. At the end of my ninth grade year I was healthy again and ready to compete for the starting quarterback spot in high school. Our high school football team had three potential quarterbacks.
Football Underdogs to Champions I had tried out for the High School football team but unfortunately was cut. I worked hard over the summer and even passed on the family vacation to North Carolina to attend football conditioning at the school. Even with all of my effort put towards running and weightlifting I was still cut. That however did not stop me from playing the sport I love. I had heard of a local pigskin football league that allowed any teen my age to play.
O was hired the second semester of my junior year after the coach I had my freshman through junior year of football quit because of a better job offer. I was a nervous wreck thinking that this coach might try to actually kill me and my teammates. This all changed after the first time I met him. O made an impact on me by managing to teach me the value of being a good leader, being a good teammate, and most of all a better person, in a very short period of time. Anybody that was interested in playing football was supposed
In the PWCFL my position changed, I gained some weight and size so I moved to fullback and middle linebacker. My number changed also to 44, after John Riggens former running back for my favorite team the W... ... middle of paper ... ... average season. The next year my senior year went along the lines with my junior year. I got injured the first game with a separated shoulder. I continued to play the season despite the pain because you only have one chance at high school football and I wasn’t going to miss one play.
I was not quite the starting spot yet because they were splitting my playing time evenly with Ryan McCabe. When we started scrimmaging other teams people were surprised I could keep up with them because I was just a little sophomore. The scrimmages must have showed something promising out of me because when we got into the camps tournament I did most of the playing. I was no longer splitting time evenly with Ryan McCabe. From that moment on there was no way I would be giving up that starting position.
I saw this as a very significant event in my path through adolescence, a chance to get recognized by my new school, as well as a chance to make some friends and gain some glory along the way. Getting up one Saturday morning and going up to the school, I was very nervous about whether I would make the team or not. I've always had athletic ability, but since this was a new town, I was unsure about how my skills would compare with the other kids. Football tryouts were a grueling event. When tryouts started, it was explained to all of us that the coaches would run drills in order to gauge our individual skills, and then place us in specific position groups.
I have seen all of this first hand as I played college football for two years. It's been brought up time and time again. The majority of coaches think it's a great idea, I mean most coaches bring in million plus dollar contracts. That’s beside the point though. The NCAA still balks every time at the idea because it would cut into their profit margin and the lining of their own damn pockets.
Joe started playing sports all year long when he was only 10 years old. Even though he was a Multi- Sports Star, football was his main sport. He lived in a port of the state where use to be coal producing tough-minded people that believed in “hard work pays off” which he learned very quickly. “Joe Montana showed he was a leader on and off the field” said his peewee coach. (Ramen 15) He started his official football career at Ringgold High School where he stunned the coaches and became starting quarterback during his junior year and he was also phenomenal at basketball and he was so skilled at basketball that he got a scholarship to North Carolina.
