You would think being the best football player in the school, I would get more respect from my peers but nope everyone calls me the dork who has a 4.0 and plays football. I’m still wondering why it’s bad to be smart now days. Every since I moved here I was teased from day one. There is only 20 days until graduation and I’m so excited to be leaving this dumb. “ AH Kevin, what you thinking about”, asked my best friend Shawn.
Playing college football is a privilege, not a business. Players should be playing for the love of the game and not the money. Also many college players already have a free ride through out their four years of college or until they decide to go pro because they are already receive many things from the school and it’s not fair to other athletes who play a different sport who don’t get paid as well because they work hard for their sport just like college football players do. College football for players isn’t a business. Being able to play college football for a school is a privilege.
Inspiring, courageous, believe, faith, and positive. I chose inspiring due to all of the inspiring stories Tim shared. From not letting others telling him what he can and cannot do, to becoming one of the best college athletes of all time. I used courageous because of his never quit attitude. He pushed through everything and he had the courage to prove people that he could be a quarterback in the NFL.
Throughout my childhood, my brother was always the better athlete; of course, our three-year age difference gave him the advantage. I aspired to be greater than him in every sport so my dad could notice me more than him. Because of the constant competition I had with my older brother, it affected our relationship. A quick temper and serious attitude problem was built in my character at a young age, which made my dad lose his patience with me. I am now in college and my relationship with my dad has drifted apart more and more over the years.
HEAD: Dale Earnhardt Jr. valued many things in his life one was his family. They came first before anything that’s why when his father died in that race he didn’t go to victory lane he went to his father’s side and was there when he died. The next thing he really valued was racing because it ran in this family and after his father’s death he felt close to him again even though he is dead. His education was him going through high school then going to college for two years to get his automotive degree. His dad was a big influence he really pushed him to do well in school and to not get in trouble and he learned everything about racing from his father.
Friday Night Lights provided all three of these themes plus a whole list of others. This movie also helps to decode why football has such an impact on the youth of America, especially high school football. The 1988 Permian Panther football team deserved to win this game yet they lost, but yet they gained much more out of this experience than the victors did. They learned that football helped turn them into men; it helped them to become much more diverse human beings. Teaching them the basics of being a man while at the same time teaching them the importance of team work and perseverance through whatever life throws at you.
1. Although this is a commercial, it is also the most profound motivational influence I have seen in a while, so I had to put it on here. It is both inspiring and motivational for kids, adults and anyone feeling like they won’t achieve their dream. Derrick Coleman the first deaf NFL player discusses his struggles with becoming an NFL player. Being deaf coaches were unsure how to coach him, he was picked on by many of his peers and told to quit.
They are the best high school teams around, and the whole town is full of nerves and excitement! Jack listens to his favorite pre-game song, takes a couple deep breaths, and walks out onto that soccer field for the last and final time of his high school career. The whole crowd at their feet cheering for Jack and The Warriors! He looks around at the stands and can’t help but feel honored. He knew he had to try his best, not only for him but for his hometown backing him up.
Representing my school by playing for the varsity football team was surreal to me. Out of the fifty freshman playing football, I was the only one to suit up and play for varsity that season. Winning that game would have meant going to the playoffs and most importantly, it wouldn’t have been the last football game for the seniors. That game also had a personal significance for me; it would be the first time I would be playing underneath the lights of Eagle Stadium for everyone to
“Why? !,” came out of my mouth as both a question and exclamatory statement. My father advised that it was the last thing anybody wanted to do, and revealed that his company was not performing well in the spiraling economy. This was news to everybody, and it became clear that my father wanted to shield this information from my sisters and I because he did not want to distract us from our studies. Selling the beloved home, he and my grandmother shared, would be the only means he could pay for our college studies.
