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.
Life Lessons Through Football Growing up I was a tough kid to get through too, even most of my high school years. I had no ambitions of doing something bigger in life. Always wanting to hang out with friends, going to parties, chasing girls, and getting into drugs. I was getting into trouble and my grades were slipping very low. I suffered from depression because I thought I would never be good in sports, or amount to anything in life.
When I first arrived on the football team there were no expectations. It was the teams’ second year varsity and they just recovered from a defeated season (0-10). The year I played we went 4-6, this season I made the varsity team as a freshman. My role on the team was not important up until my junior year, but my sophomore year is what changed me the most. My sophomore year my team went 12-0(undefeated) we won the thing.

The possible injuries that a College player could be induced with are astronomical every time he steps on the field. From a simple sprain to the possible life threatening brain injury that could result in death We come out of high school and go to college to get a better education don't we? Should we have special programs for those who want to play football after high school, instead of having a student try to play sports and get an education at the same time? That takes away from the time that the student has to study and learn. Also, college students may spend time after games they have won celebrating and partying, which generally results in alcohol consumption and ill-chosen behavior.
‘The Wave’ is supposed to make the football team win big against Clarkstown. ‘The Wave’ takes the class reject/future sociopath and makes him an organized, welcomed sociopath. ‘The Wave’ makes Amy Smith (a petite girl with thick, curly, Goldilocks hair) not feel like she always needs to compete against her BFF, Laurie with boys and grades and stuff. It’s like when phen-phen hit the market.. It’s a true blue miracle! And how long do you think it took to stick?
Unfortunately I didn’t start as we had an experienced team, with only one more freshmen that made the varsity team. On the first game day, the unlucky sequence of events for the team gave me the chance to be the first freshmen starting goalkeeper in 5 years, as the starting goalkeeper sprained his wrist. From that day I did not give up the starting position, and was number one goalkeeper for my entire high school career. The regular season passed, and we were able to clutch the playoff spot against our arch rivals East Catholic. We had the great run, and ended up being the 10th seed.
My dad always told me that school comes first and sports come second. When he would say this to me back in grade nine, I would never believe him and think to myself as long as I am a good enough runner, I can go to any university in the states that I wanted to go to. So all the way through high school, I just cruised by not caring about my marks. Then when grade
Con #1 Con #1 Paragraph 2 Paragraph 2 Therefore, opponents of the early entry to the professional level point to the shortcomings of players, and say that they are not mature enough mentally or physically. Kwame Brown was the number one overall pick in the 2001 draft, he struggled to make it and now he is making the league minimum. The eligibility rule for the NFL changed to three years in 1990 (Bianci). Only 2% of NCCA football players make it to the NFL (Moulton). Only .9% of high school football players make it to the professional level (Chylinski).
I went to the parade and football game when I was younger but I just saw it as simply a fun social event. In sixth grade, I walked in the parade when I played my first and only year of youth football. It was just to show I was a football player in my mind, nothing special. Once I hit the tenth grade I had joined the football team. This disallowed me to attend the parade, because the football players were required to be in the locker room in the morning.
