Nevertheless, I continued on with my dad’s support and mentoring to be the best player the Arkansas River Valley had ever laid eyes on. Now that I had my goal of becoming an NBA player in front of me, I wanted to know how to get there. I began by asking my dad questions about salary, work environment, would it be easy to grow as player and what type of education I would need. NBA Salary Expectations As I continued throughout junior high and High school, my attention was quickly drawn to the amount of money that professional players made for playing a sport they love. Salary expectations for this profession exceeded my wildest dreams and I couldn’t even begin to imagine what I could do if I made that kind of money.

As Jackson became more interested in making music videos for his songs, he started being extremely serious about the work he would put into the videos before they were seen. This dedication would go the same with his live shows and worldwide tours. Identically, Michael Jordan demonstrates the same kind of hard work for his basketball career. Jordan spent many hours at practice with his team and even alone. At some point, Jordan would be sick and would be advised not to play a game, but his determination prevented him from sitting a game out.
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.

My team and I were going to play St. Rita, a battle we had persistently prepared for since the last game of our sophmore year. The sun was beating on my pads, radiating the heat to make practice seem even worse. I was exhausted and looking forward to the end of my last sweat, pouring practice for the week. Our team was repetitively executing plays to make sure they were like second nature to us on friday. The coach yelled, "Last Play!"
