The town of Odessa, Texas is suffering from racism and economic challenges. Friday Night was exciting for the town because of the football game. They closed down all the businesses so they could attend the game and show their support. First, Boobie Miles was very popular in Odessa. He was star athlete for the team.
I was looking around for the footballs; he got impatient and started the game with T.C. William’s football. That’s when one of the coaches said “you have to give them our football after the other team loses there 4th down.” I said “oh that makes sense! Like the guys with the X-shirt in the NFL.” Coach said “Yes, Don’t worry it’s our fault we didn’t tell you about it. I know it’s your first game.”
Valdez Randall Dear Introduction to bears football 9/04/2015 No Bears player took more "mental reps" in training camp than quarterback David Fales, who didn't practice until the team's final day in Bourbonnais due to an undisclosed illness. "It's hard to go out there and do it sometimes," Fales said Thursday night after leading the Bears to a 24-0 win over the Cleveland Browns in the preseason finale at Soldier Field. "It's easy to understand what's going on. But getting under center and seeing it when you're behind the line and guys are coming at you, it's different." | David Fales passed for 131 yards and two touchdowns.
But he was also depressed because he’s never been away from his siblings before and he didn’t want to leave them, but they understood and knew it was for the best. After playing four years of college football he was drafted by the Atlanta falcons. His family has never been prouder and from this point they understood that they would be having a big paycheck. This was a good thing for the Vick family, but also a very bad thing for them. They didn’t know how to save money or spend it in a more convenient way to keep some extra cash for the long run.
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.
Witness Paper 2 Blue Mountain State The show “Blue Mountain State” deals with a football team that doesn’t only focus on extracurricular sports, but they take living the college life to the extreme. The episode I am about to discuss deals with Thad Castle getting poked in the butt by a fellow teammate. Thad castle is the main character in this TV series. The show starts out with a football team practicing on a weekend, so this episode will not only be about the college football, but the “behind the scenes “. Thad Castle gets poked in the butt during this practice, and he instantly freaks out and wants to get to the bottom of this awful happening.
Emillia Wade Mr. Hudson Junior English 2 December 2012 “…..when he stepped on that football field tonight he wouldn’t feel like a football player at all but like someone much more powerful entering a glittering, barbaric arena” (pg.7). For students in the West Texas town of Odessa, the most worshipped are the gridiron starts of Friday night. They live their lives for the glory of representing the Permian Panthers at their stadium that seats nearly 20,000. They do it for themselves, they do it for their community, and the do it to carry on that tradition, however, varies from family to family. In a chapter he entitles “Dreaming of Heroes,” Bissinger describes two very different father and son relationships, in the book Friday Night Lights.
Brittney Smith Dr. Fullman English Comp. 1 9/21/15 “In Virginia, high school football is a way of life, it’s bigger than Christmas day.” This is a quote from my favorite movie “Remember the Titans.” It takes place in nineteen seventy one and it’s severely segregated in Alexandria, Virginia; and TC Williams High School is now being integrated. To make matters worse, the new head coach is a black man, something that the town frowns upon; and the team is full of resentful players, both black and white. The team mates do not like each other and neither do any of the people in the town or school, which brings a greater division on the field. In the midst of the hate and change, the players are all stationed at a football camp that is meant to bring them together
In Remember The Titans coach Boone manipulates the students to overcome their ingrained racial distrust and play for each other in the football team. In one part of the movie he exaggerates his childhood to inspire and uplift the new quarterback, “sunshine”: Boone says: “when I was fifteen years old I lost my mother and my father in the same month Ronnie, same month. 12 brothers and sisters I was the youngest one of them, now I wasn't ready either, but they needed me. Your team needs you tonight, you're the Colonel, and you’re going to command your troops!” Coach Paul 'Doc' Hines: “You have twelve brothers and sisters”? Coach Boone: “Eight”.
Discourse Community Analysis Rough Draft Throughout my school years, I have been involved various communities, but none were as memorable and special as my high school football team. I could even argue It was more of a family than a community. Our community was made up of guys who all had the same goal and were determined to reach it at all costs; we wanted to win, period. When you have a community of brothers who all come together and fight alongside each other, down after down, it is something truly special. For us Texans, football is not a pass time it is a religion.
