Favorite sport: Soccer When I was in the third grade, I signed up to start playing soccer at my local park in Lakeland, FL.

I continued playing soccer all thru school and up until I graduated in 2004. Here are a couple of reasons why soccer has become my favorite sport.
Each and every county meet along with regional meets, I placed in every one of my events. My first and foremost favorite event was the one hundred meter dash. Therefore, I wanted to win it all for just that event. Of course the other events were important to me too, but since I began running track in elementary school, the one hundred meter had been my event of “perfection”.

A lot of people think that football games are the highlight of a cheerleader’s career—wrong again. Football games are like practices; games are actually much easier than practices. There is a ton of preparation that goes on for competition behind the scenes. First, you meet the team; then, you learn your skills and routine; next, you tweak it until it is perfect, and finally everything comes down to six minutes on the floor in front of judges. Two routines, that’s the only chance you have to prove you are the best.
Nuur Soccer and American football Soccer and American football are two of the most loved sport in the world. Soccer is played a lot in many countries around the world, but not that much in North American. In the other hand American football is only played in North America.

I was always the best player on any athletic team I participated in. Popularity was me; everybody in the school knew who I was. My confidence couldn’t be any higher entering high school. Through the earlier years of my life, I had learned how to succeed. My first report card of my freshman year comes out and I received a C in Spanish 1.
Though I’m not the oldest child, I’m my parent’s first child together and being there first child together they have always seemed to push me harder. I was successful in sports at a young age and after a while I developed a passion for the spotlight. The passion for the spotlight drove me to perform. I ended up becoming really passionate about working harder, staying in the spotlight, and making sure I looked good. When I was twelve years old an old coach of mine told me that when I play sports I’m putting on a show for the fans in the stands.
"My Football Injury" I could not believe what had happened to me one summer day. All of my dreams shattered for that year and for my future. I was never able to really recover to be the best player, I had been. All I could think about back in those days was being successful at my skilled position; the roar of the crowd; the popularity; I thought I could play the sport I love until I was too old to play it. It was the summer of 1976, my nerves were raging, mainly in my stomach as the butterflies flutter till no end.
