By this time, we were starting to get a bigger crowd that was attending the games. Before the first round of sectionals, we were nervous and not able to picture ourselves with a sectional title. We had to play one of the toughest teams in the first round, so we were extremely nervous and could barely control our emotions. After a very nerve racking 24 minutes, we won the first game. We got the confidence that we could beat the other teams in our sectional after this big win.
This man was named Bill Parcells. Bill Parcells started with a team whom before him has back to back to back 5 – 11 records. He then in his very first season went 10 – 6 and went to the playoffs. Followed by a 6 – 10 and a 9 – 7 without a playoff appearance then in his last season a 9 -7 record but went to the playoffs They were expected to win the Super Bowl the year before this year but, Tony Romo fumbled the ball while trying to set it down for the kicker to kick for the lead with merely a few minutes left on the clock. He tried to pick up the ball and run it in the end zone for pretty much the win but was inches short from the first down and a yard away from the end zone when he was stopped by the linebacker from the Seattle Seahawks, who ended up with the Lombardi Trophy as the National Football League (NFL) champions.
So they all gathered as a family one day and decided to ask Michael if he was okay and that if he wanted to join the family, Michael was slightly confused because he already thought he was part of the family, they were all happy. Michael started playing football but he wasn’t as successful Coach Burt expected him to be that’s when Leigh Anne intervened and told him to defend his team as he would defend her and the family. He soon understood and started to play way better. S.J. soon intervened by making Michael practice and exercise everyday.
Whether one is beginning or ending there is always a constant entertainment of sports being watched throughout. The movie Rudy made in 1993 starring Sean Astin as “Rudy” was the star of a true story. The movie directed by David Anspaugh and produced by Robert N. Fried made a phenomenal movie that was rated one of the best sports movie of all time (Michael Medved, New York Post) Rudy was always put down his entire life; he wasn’t good enough, smart enough, big enough, he wasn’t capable to do anything. His only dream ever since he was a little boy was to play football for Notre Dame. His family would just laugh at his dreams and believed that he wasn’t capable to do it even though they were fighting
We were the underdogs in this game. They were the best team in the county at the time, because they had a running back that nobody can hit, and they thought they could just run all over us. All that week during practice we were plotting to stop them. This game was an away game so after school that Wednesday we went to the locker room and I got prepared for the game, then we got all our stuff together and headed to the bus. On our way to the Henry County stadium, I was getting focused on the biggest game of my life.
Their starting line up consists of two seniors, two juniors, and one sophomore, all who were part of the championship team last year. This experienced combination of players will be a lethal hit to any team that is in their way. Russ Smith is the driving force that propels this team. He has all the skills it takes to keep the team together and has helped amass such a great run at the end of their season, with a 42-point outbreak against Houston two weeks earlier. The Louisville Cardinals are not going down this year; they will fly all the way to the top.

I looked at the other team, they looked so good, but I knew we had the chance to beat them. I had never seen so many multi-cultured kids on a football team before, I was shocked but excited! They started the game with a toss off that we won, and we got the punt return. I was confused because the referee was yelling at me asking for a football. I was looking around for the footballs; he got impatient and started the game with T.C.
Reid Lundeen Miss Streza English III September 19, 2013 David vs. Goliath On September 12th, 2013, Dana Hills Football had one of the best performances in the history of the school. The game was held at Dana Hills, against its hated rival, San Clemente.

It was a bright energetic night, after the team had won their last football game for the playoffs; they were having a good time in one of the biggest, well known bars in NYC. Just as the clock struck 12, indicating it was midnight, 5 out of the 13 players took off on their own. I was one of them. We had decided that staying at the bar wasn’t enough of a celebration for our victory considering that our little group consisting of the quarterback, the two wide receivers, and the two running backs was the crème of the crop. The ones that really mattered.
