Overcoming Adversity

Why Football: The smell of shredded dirt and grass combined with crashing helmets, screaming fans and cheerleaders...enough said.

Value Confirmation: I felt like a valuable teammate when I won the most improved award at the end of the season.

Comradery at its Best: When we thought we were going to lose the Princeton game but we came back with great defense and worked together to take back the second half and eventually the game!

My “Do Over”: I would have run the left side of the field instead of the right when the QB handed me the ball so I would have scored and not been tackled.

Proudest Moment: When I was watching my teammate Blake run the ball, a guy from the other team grabbed his mask and threw him to the ground. Blake was mature and such a good sport about it. He didn’t fight back or run his mouth. He just waited for the Refs to make the call.

Preparation: I put a lot into my diet and exercise to stay energized and healthy since I’ve been on the team, to make sure I’m always ready for game day. I also need to stay ripped for the ladies.

Recognition: Our new QB passed the ball to me so he wouldn’t get sacked and I took off and gained some yardage even though I didn’t run it into the end zone. Coach’s Impact: After I didn’t make it to the end zone with the ball I thought the coach was going to rip into me . Instead he seemed to be proud of me for getting as far as I did.
