This year playing football for Springfield is not the same as last year in high school because I’m not as close with the people on my college team. Last year we had so many exciting games being the top team in New York. I specifically remember the game--we played St. Anthony’s to open up the season. I remember that game perfectly like it happened yesterday. St. Anthony’s usually beats us, but it’s a close game every single time.
Images were racing wild through my mind as I thought about my teammates going to battle without me. I had played with some of these guys since we were in eighth grade, and when they needed me the most, all I could do is sit and cheer.

In Friday Night Lights, Shows how football was everything, even to teachers, and everyone who was affiliated with the school. In the book, you notice how some dreams had been crushed, the player that shows it the most it Booby Miles, a running back who was set to have an outstanding year until he was forced out with a leg injury. You get to see how Booby deals with his whole life including his fights with racism. I have seen the book, and also the movie. I honestly liked the movie a little better.
They did not have too many players, but at the time Doug looked like he was seven feet tall. When we finally played them we were pretty worried because Drew was our biggest player and was short compared to Doug. We started off the game pretty solid and scored the first couple points, but by halftime we were down at least 30 points. People in the stands were not into the game at all and kids who were waiting for the next game left the gym. Mr. Johnson took Doug out for the third quarter, and by some stroke of luck everyone on our team caught fire.
I couldn’t sleep at night because my stomach was aching. My parents thought it was just an ordinary stomach ache. At midnight my mother took me to the hospital to check if there was any disease in my body. The doctor said that it was just an ordinary stomach ache. Then we went back home and my stomach was still aching.
