Henry Murray’s theory of needs is a well-known representative for the diversity tradition in human motivation. According to Murray, people have needs that must be met in order to achieve self-fulfillment, and satisfaction in one’s life. Playing football fulfilled Favre’s goals and dreams. The need for aggression, dominance, affiliation with his team, and understanding of the game were met during any game Favre would play.

Our coach would always tell us we were a “cut from a different bread”, we were not just your average joe high schooler, we were model students as well top athletes. The beautiful part of being in such a tight-knit community is that although your environment might change, your friends and support system do not. Balancing school and athletics was difficult, us athletes did not have the luxury of having ample free time to study or go to tutoring.

Coaching allowed him to keep his competitive spirit (even if he couldn’t compete himself). “I may not be able to compete myself,” Thomas said, “but I like to compete against the other coaches and watch my athletes kick their athletes butts.” Coach Thomas earned himself the title of 3A coach of the year in the state of Kansas, due to that competitive spirit he has flowing through his veins. Thomas felt this was a huge mile marker in his coaching career. “This was a immense accomplishment for me,” He said, “and it shows that throughout my coaching career I have always been moving in the right direction.” In order for him to be the excellent coach he is, he has to give up family time and with the supportive family he has, that never causes
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.

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.

He soon understood and started to play way better. S.J. soon intervened by making Michael practice and exercise everyday.

I now look at the stress I have had in my past and can see how some of that stress has given me the motivation to succeed and conquer the tasks, which has caused an abundance of happiness and pride once I actually accomplish success and beat the stress. I can relate all this information back to times during my career playing football, where I was told often by coaches and others that I would not ever start or play or have a chance to get any further than high school , because I was very undersized, but I turned all that stress from them telling me that and used it as motivation to work harder, practice ore, and prove all of them wrong.
