Battle High School was the football team to win state 5A high school football their first year of being established. Somehow our team Lebanon High School ended up under the lights with them the following year. Through the years of football, I gained some super good friends that I played football with. I would have never guessed that I would have gained so many good friends/brothers through a sport like football. Lebanon Missouri is a football town, they strive off of football.
“Dad why can’t we play football today?” he asked. “Well its Sunday and you need to get your spiritual growth in, because what is going to happen when you are done playing football?” his father stated. Billy just shrugged off the comment because in his mind, he would never stop playing football. Billy continued to progress in his athletic ability becoming a standout athlete in Football as well as Basketball, In High school he chose to focus solely on football because it was the love of his life and he knew he could get a scholarship to play. He was an all-state running back four years in a row in high school and voted as one of the top high school recruits in the entire country.
He loved all three sports, but soon figured out that football was his favorite and the one he was most serious about. When he was a freshman in high school he made the JV football team for Colonial High School, but due to other player injuries he was called up to play on the varsity team . His lucky break came during his freshman year while playing varsity.The Rutgers University coaches were watching recruiting film on a different player that played against Eric, but Eric was the one that got t... ... middle of paper ... ...all program.His No. 52 is displayed on the upper deck’s video box it hs 600 led lights and shines bright during the night games.

The football program at Manassas was never funded so the team had to play something called ... ... middle of paper ... ... go to his physical therapy or to school, yet he’s so determined to play football that he considers playing on a bad knee. Coach manages to talk some sense into him, reasoning with him that if he does the right thing and goes to therapy, class, and rests, then things will work out for the better. Montrail’s knee is better by the time of the playoffs and he is granted a full scholarship to any university by a friend of Courtney. These players, with the help of Coach Courtney, transformed into selfless team members that went on to show that Manassas football is not dead through determination, character, discipline, and commitment. They show that if you want something bad enough, then you have to do the necessary work to make that happen.
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. When Walter was 5 he started to play in a little league. Coaches were shocked to see Walter play football, almost every time he touched the football, touchdown. Not only his parents, but the players, and the coaches noticed that the harder Walter works he could go far.
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.
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. I was horrible the first couple weeks but got better later in the season. I became one the best defense lineman and offensive lineman players on the team. Then when I got older I played football in middle school at Acadian Middle and Lafayette Christian Academy.
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.
But one day that all changed for me, I was in middle school and my best friend told me he was trying out for a flag football to and he encouraged me to join him I told him I was kind of nervous cause I didn’t really no much about the sport but hey if he was going I might as well just go to hang out with my friend. So I played that year and really picked up the sport learning the different positions the rules and actually I started to enjoy it. That season I did really good I had a number of touch downs at the receiver position and even had a varsity coach ask tell me when I go to high school he wanted me to play for his team. I actually to him up on the offer and started my freshman year playing football for him. It was fun but .
My parents’ knew at the time that I love playing football, but they did not want me to get a concussion this I did not fully understand. Because not long after, sophomore year in high school I got my first concussion by played two-hand touch football. How it happened it was a weight lifting class and the class would play football and eventually two-hand touch exculpated to tackling. Football is more than just a contact sport. What are often disregarded are the benefits that come from the game.
