The Blind Side Michael Oher is a seventeen year old guy that was basically all alone; he was just all by himself because his mother was a drug addict who left him and his other brothers when they were little. He was living with one of his family members but it didn’t seem enough so the family members he was living with decided to try to get Michael into Wingate Christian School. But it all worked out actually thanks to Coach Burt’s persuasiveness to let him in because he knew Michael could be a great part of the football program they had at school. Things were really odd and strange to Michael when he had his first day at Wingate Christian School because he hadn’t been at school for so long and because he didn’t knew what students and teachers were discussing
I chose to analyze this film because it depicts the modern social issues of poverty, racial inequality, and even more perfectly, the sociology of sports. “The Blind Side” is about a young African-American man named Michael Oher, who had no place to live because of his drug-addicted mother and absent father. One evening, the Tuohy family drove by Michael walking along the road. He was only wearing a t-shirt and shorts in 30 degree weather so Mrs. Tuohy told her husband to turn around and the emotional story began to unfold. The Tuohy family took “Big Mike” in and enrolled him in the all-white Wingate Christian School where the two Tuohy children attended.
Ehab Degachi Christopher Litman ENG 2150 December 9th, 2012 Mayberry’s article focuses around discussing the role that males play in not only the community of “Bottom” but how their actions and decision making impacts the relationship between Black males and females. She goes to decipher how white men affect the actions of black men who ultimately affect the black females in the story. The white men are seen as superior, so naturally, the black men want to be like them or at least as powerful as them while still resenting them, not worshiping. They tend to be unsuccessful and resort to black females as the solution to their problems. In the article, Mayberry writes “The bottom is not powerful enough, however, to contain the destructive
Is the story of the Titans unusual for what occurred in the South during the time of the Civil Rights Movement from 1954 on? Suggested Response: Yes and no. Yes, in that it was so dramatic.

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”.
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.
These kids’s start out young in little leagues playing their heart off, where they eventually grow up and play for their high schools. High school football, teenage boys all over the country spend countless hours in their schools weight room trying to be the fastest, strongest, and best football player around. College scouts set out everyday to find these young men, but they are extremely specific on what they want and rarely settle for less. Size is one factor that separates an average player from a college football player. Every position on the football field has a certain size demand.
What is my project? My project for this trimester will be based on training an athlete to become a better quarterback. It will be both deep and authentic because I'm training "one" athlete at "one" position. I'm interested in this project because being a personal trainer is something that I wouldn't mind doing as a career and revolving that Round football, just makes it ten times better. Throughout this project, I hope to learn what workout regimens actually show a positive result and which ones don't.
In the movie “Remember the Titans” a southern community during the civil rights movement witnessed integration. There were predetermined stereotypes towards both races, which was over come through the communities’ passion for football. This film also illustrated how the issue of integration could be accepted into American society through the direct stories of the players on the team. Sunshine, a California born hippy was introduced to the team while at football camp, at first he was judged and discriminated on by both black and white players. However within a short time of the boys playing together friendships had formed and the judgments were lost.
