growing in... Why Football: I get to tackle, run, and throw. My three favorite activities. Well besides sleeping that is. Comradery at its Best: When we won our last game of the season. Our winning streak was so long and we had so much to prove and we did it. It really felt amazing to be on a winning team, one that works hard for results. Proudest Moment: I had never been on a real team before and so when playing with other people who want to win just as much as you do, it’s good to hear positive things from them. One day we were really down on a game and so I started cheering everyone up and everyone got pumped up. Overcoming Challenges: I tend to be a very quiet person so it was difficult communicating with the team. With the help of some friends I started to speak up. I knew that my team depended on everyone saying what needs to happen. My boys helped me come out of my shell. Now they might regret it because they can’t get me to shut up.

Sacrifice

Coach’s Impact: We all know Coach is smart and knows what he’s doing, even when it’s stuff we hate. Suicides suck (don’t ever be late to practice). One practice the team was having a hard time with a play. We all told him we didn’t want to try it anymore. All he said was “do or do not, there is no try.” That’s all it took. We were back on the field running that play again and again. Personal Best: My personal best would have to be when I was spouting crazy positive remarks at a game that wasn’t going so well. We kept letting the team score but I wasn’t going to let us lose our pride. I was the best at letting everyone know we still have a chance, that we always have a chance. My “Do Over”: I wouldn’t be late to practice. Preparation: I eat healthy and try to keep myself from being negative. .
