I've never decided if I actually miss playing football. I played tight end and outside linebacker for one season, during my freshman year of high school. The previous winter I'd lifted weights often enough for a junior high kid, then I long jumped in track during the spring and kept in good condition all summer. I was no all-out beast, but for me it was decent dedication. Our coach, Mr. Noble, was horrible.
Success is a Choice In the film, “Undefeated” (2011) directed by Daniel Lindsay and T.J. Martin, Coach Bill Courtney helps out inner city high school football players with everything from their plays on the field, to their grades in class, to their personal life at home. With this extracurricular activity being a main aspect of the characters’ lives, their lives outside of the sport are positively impacted from playing football in Manassas. The film starts with Coach Bill Courtney listing off players whose disorderly conduct has resulted in them being unable to play for the Manassas Tigers. North Memphis used to be a booming place because of the Firestone plant, but since the plant closed, people moved out and jobs closed. The football program, as a result, fell off the map currently making the Manassas Tigers the underdogs.
Eddie learned a lot about football from his dad, but when Walter was born, he knew he would have competition. At a very young age Walter and Eddie would have pickup games in the backyard.

Not only his parents, but the players, and the coaches noticed that the harder Walter works he could go far.

He said I could move for my size and would like me to play with him. I said no but then he went talk to my mom and next thing I know my mom tells me I am playing football next year.

It all started my freshmen year, my first year organized football at my high school Grosse Pointe North. Where I was just messing around one day before practice kicking the football around. The kicking coach had taken notice and told me that I had the natural talent and leg strength to become a solid and well-developed place kicker. I had then earned the starting job by my first ever career football game, and have made a great career out of it so far, and hope to keep it going. I never thought that I would become a kicker I thought that was the pretty boy position on the football team, little did I know that was my ticket to a college football career.
In the 1950’s, scandals hit the college of William and Mary for hiding its players poor grades to allow them to be eligible all season. (Branch 83) This is important because the University of William and Mary was contending with powerhouse football programs that season for a national title. This here all shows that even 50-100 years ago collegiate athletics had already been dealing with improper benefits for players. In the last 30 years, the NCAA has dealt with pretty much a new case on improper benefits once every year. The first time this rule really was brought to national attention was in the early 1980’s.

He has given millions of dollars back to his university, and he has put his heart and his soul into molding young me. Joe Paterno has become an icon of college football.
