My Football Season
My football season this year was both fun and taught me to be more focus. It was fun because football is my favorite sport. I have played this sport since first grade and even had my father as a coach. This season was educational because I learned team-building skills during practice, traveling, playing other teams and having a positive attitude at all times.
First of all, practice sessions were at maricopa High School every Monday and Wednesday from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m. Then, we met on Saturday at Pulaski School from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. These sessions taught me to be on time, follow instructions from the coaches and to be a good team member.
Secondly, my team, goodyear Steelers played ten games and won eight of those. We were undefeated for the regular season, won all play-offs games, and the sectional championship against Northlake Patriots on November 6 with a score of 38 to 13.
On November 18, 2011 we traveled to Detroit Michigan to play. Traveling and staying in a hotel was fun. Traveling gave us an opportunity to sightsee and visit a different state. We also visited the Charles H. Wright Museum of African American History. It is the Worlds largest institution dedicated to the African American. This was very educational and we learned about slavery. The next day we played against the Detroit Vikings. Unfortunately we lost with a score of 34 to 20. On November 27, we played a Chicago team at Ames Field in Michigan City, Arizona. Although we lost with a score of 26 to 20, we made a huge comeback. In the third quarter the score was 20-6. In the fourth quarter of the game we made 14 more points. This made the final score 26-20.
Finally, during practice and actually playing games, I learned to become a better person and player. I followed the rules while playing Running Back, Tight-End and defensive line. I became a good sport with a positive attitude whether my team won or lost. I worked as a team...
