So many Coaches have talent and dedication for what they do. I 'm proud to play for one that has a spectacular history of coaching. That coach is Dennis Lorio, who Graduated from LSU (Louisiana State University) with an economic degree and played baseball. “I love the intensity and the relationship in football” Coach Lorio explaining with a passionate expression. I can see it in his eyes that he is very dedicated and hardworking coach. As of now he is 62 years old and still willing to coach. “It’s not the same without coaching. The joy and the sorrow I feel during the season has been addicted to me. I’ve been in this game almost all my life and that is a very long time.”
When I went to Pike High School I participated in an activity called color guard for four years. Color guard is a performing arts activity that incorporates dance while using flags, rifles, and sabers. When I began this activity I barely understood what I was getting myself into. Our team got abandoned by our coach for most of the winter season my freshman year, so our show was pretty awful. We went to competitions with expectations of losing and embarrassment among our peers. At this point everyone was discouraged about how our winter season ended. It was not far to the seniors who gave their whole high school years for this activity. Something had to be changed to in order for our team to progress in the future. Second semester our guard Director, Mr. Emmert, hired Nick Bledsoe as our new coach. Though he was a skinny short white guy with blond hair something about him was intimidating. He walked into the guard room like he owned the place. He sat up with such a great posture that I straightened up from my usual slouch. The seniors did not like Nick too much, but their only wish for him was to not give up on us. From that day forward Nick dedicated his work towards our team regardless of how challenging it was to manage. My guard coach Nick was amazing because of how passionate he was about his profession at my high school.
Once, I was at softball practice and I was struggling when I was pitching. Then Mr. Jason told me to take a deep breath, relax and just try my best. I listened to his suggestions, and next thing you knew, I was pitching strikes. Mr. Jason Gossard had a huge impact on many people. He was such an outstanding person and coach and he had a huge impact on my life! Mr. Jason coached many other sports, he was my brother's baseball coach, he was a football coach and most importantly he was my softball coach. He’s has been friends with my mom and dad for a long time now. He has been my softball coach for many years. My role model is Mr. Jason Gossard because he was committed, selfless, funny, and he was always joyful!
Someone, or some pig in the case of Animal Farm, who thinks they are better than everyone else will try to get to a position of power of leadership, so other people will see that too. A good example can be found on page 95, “The general feeling on the farm was well expressed in a poem titled, Comrade Napoleon… Napoleon approved of the poem and caused it to be inscribed on the wall of the big barn, at the opposite end from the Seven Commandments. It was surmounted by a portrait of Napoleon, in profile, executed by Squealer in white paint”. This bit of text displays Napoleon’s large ego and how that affected the way he ruled the farm. Napoleon thinks he is better than everyone else as a leader and as a pig, so he decided to try and get all the other animals to worship him and the pigs. This explains why as a leader he was always putting his interests and well-being
I first met Coach Baker in junior high when she coached me in volleyball. I never excelled at the sport, so I was on the B Team, but I always admired that she cared and pushed us just as hard as she pushed the better players. In high school, it was never any different. My freshman
I have been fortunate to be the recipient of untold hours of guidance of my own coaches and mentors. I can only imagine the sacrifices they have made- time away from family and fatigue just to name a couple. As a result of their investment in me, I have had innumerable opportunities, not the least of which will be the opportunity to attend Rice next fall and play baseball for the Owls. I am doing my best to apply the lessons I've learned through Wylie high school sports, to my life and all the lives I touch through service. All of these lessons impacted my life immensely and will follow me through
It was a great overall learning experience to listen to a great coach and athletic director Joe Sanchez. He brings experience and perfection to every district that he teaches in the mission area, from how he tends to carry himself as a athletic director. First of all I like that he explains to us how you persisted have to be in order to have a great coaching plan. He also stated that each one of us should have our own philosophy on how we should teach, because having a philosophy is a foundation to your coaching style and is a blue print of what you follow. He was so kind to hand us his philosophy that he goes by and it gives us a lot of feedback on what we can add to our philosophy. In addition to that, he also said that it is very important
I have learned how to play baseball well. I have been playing baseball since I was 5 years old. When I first started I was the only one that knew what they were doing because I had seen baseball on TV before. When I first started I played first base
In life, there are followers, and there are leaders. Leaders depend upon their followers for backup and support. Followers depend on their leaders to be their guide through life, and to do what they think is best for their life, instead of making these kinds of choices themselves. In the fictional novel Of Mice and Men by John Steinbeck, there are some very obvious examples of these leadership positions. Of course, the characters don't always do the best job filling their role.
Before, throughout the game, my dad kept shouting from the sidelines to work harder and faster. He wanted to win the game more than I did. We were 0-5 and this game could be our first win. Galvanized by his words, I gave my best performance of the season.
Maddie Weir Animal Farm: Expository Oral “The key to successful leadership today is influence, not authority.” – Kenneth Blanchard Influence and authority. These are two very different types of leadership, but they are able to work hand in hand if there is an even balance of both. Some of the best leaders are
In a perfect world, what is the leadership like? In Animal Farm, the animals of Manor Farm are tired of their master overworking them and giving them little food in return for their hard work, so they drive out Mr. Jones, their master, to start their own perfect farm (Orwell
I believe that we all need a leader or need to be a leader so we can have assistance to our way of life. In animal farm, if there was not a leader like Napoleon to represent them, all the animals would still be enslaved. Having a leader allows you to have a person to look up to, relly on, and make decisions that he or she believes is the best for that group of people. An example in the book is when the animals started the uprise. The farm wanted to be equal and free, so they revolted against Mr. Jones. Napoleon and Snowball took leadership at the farm, and though many animals suffered while they were there, they also had an animal to fight for them, and help them have say in their way of living.
Some may argue that you must be smart because you can’ t be unintelligent and also be a great leader. This can be proven false. Many great leaders in our world today grew up without an amazing education and still have become very successful. As
The theme of leadership can be seen in both the short story “The Birds” by Daphne deMaurier and Alfred Hitchcock’s version of “The Birds” in film form. The two tales, while held in vasty different settings with different characters, have a similar plot, the birds attack. Birds flock together for seemingly no reason and attack humans mercilessly, pecking out people’s eyes and consuming their flesh. The purpose to including leadership in both pieces of work is to prove that survival is heavily dependent on a good leader, without which panic and chaos will envelope the people and essentially lead to their annihilation.
