Kayrix Kayrix2018 1868 Excerpt’s from SBP’s Writers Notebooks “Today, I just scrimmaged the Varsity B Benedict’s team with my Cedar Stars team. Even though we lost the game 10-1, I went into the game saying I am going to play the best I can, try my best to be a team player, and reflect on my decisions after the game is finished. I enjoyed playing this scrimmage because I learned what my weaknesses are as a player. When I play against teams my level, it is harder to notice my flaws because I am not exposed to the same type of pressure as if I play guys who are better than I am. Sometimes I have a bad first touch and I can get away with it because the other team may not step to me as quick as they should, but better players, like Varsity B, steal the ball immediately and counter right away and score in less than 10 seconds.”

“Ahhhhhhh!!!! Rock music blasts into my ear. As I am wondering why counselors are blasting this demonic music? But as soon as I wake up at first sight I saw people running towards me. So my first instinct was to run away. But where is there to go? I have been imprisoned by other males like me. I feel like they didn’t send us here to try and make us men, they sent us here to mess with us.” “We have been talking about the process of going from boy to man. But I had the question, can you go from man to child?”
