It was just a joke for some people, but what we really did not know was it was teaching us to prepare for high school football. Jr high football went by really fast. We were not worried about football we were more worried about all of the girls. Football was just something we did after school. Soon after jr high football came along high school football, also came summer weights.
In Pinetop we did not have a pewee league for football. Junior high is when school sponsored football started... ... middle of paper ... .... But I never gave up because I knew I would be a better person if I kept my head high. I over came my weakness. My senior year the off-season went great.
Injury after injury had occurred. Then after hurting my leg it was the end. It all started out at the age of four when my family introduced me to football. Playing football had been a major family tradition. Sports in general is important
Football was very rewarding for me not only through awards and accolades, but through the experiences and lesson that I learned. It helped me to be disciplined in my lifestyle and appreciate hard work. From a young boy wanting to play with all of the big kids, to now being one of those bug kids that other young boys look up to, football has made a positive impact on my life.
Also in peewee you have team meetings to discuss defensive and offensive strategy and sometime just to bond with your teammates. Usually this takes place once a week. Continuing involvement in football happens at the high school level because it is the most easily accessible program to teens. A teen will usually continue playing football in high school if they enjoyed playing or they really excelled at it in the peewee level. The good thing about playin... ... middle of paper ... ...h school I wasn’t a great player.
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.
Jake is now in his senior year of high school. Jake found a football position in where you don't need your eyesight. This position is called the Long snapper, all the long snapper has to do is pass the ball backwards to the player behind them then the game begins. Jake’s mom did not want him to try out for the highschool team’s long snapper because she thought that Jake might get hurt or rejected by the coach. Either way Jake went to the high schools team coach, Peterson.
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.
“Varsity Blues” takes place in a small town in Texas called West Canyon, in this town if you are a healthy boy, then you are a football player. Young males have tons of pressure from their families, friends, teachers, and others in the town to play football, and take the game very seriously. But how did this town get so involved in the sport, why do they make such a huge deal about the game, and what happens if you are a male in West Canyon and you do not believe the world revolves around a high school football team. Jonathan Mox grew up in this town, with all of these pressures, but he did not agree that high school football was the most important thing in life. His father really pressures him because he used to play football as well and takes it very seriously, and thinks that Mox should as well.
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.
