I found myself a few years later, in junior high, still wrestling and playing basketball. I knew the choice between the two would come eventually, but I thought that it would be a much easier choice. I ended choosing to continue in wrestling, and cut my basketball career short. I soon became one of the best wrestlers in my class. I won all but a few matches throughout my junior high wrestling career. I felt like I was on top of the world.
At my young age my life has been full of risks, most of which took place in high school. Starting my Freshman year, I took a chance and joined my schools wrestling team. This sport taught me determination. The urge to be the best I could and to continue to better myself every day. I enjoyed this feeling to the extent that it encouraged me to also join the track team. Little did I know that would be the start to my sports career. This gave me the opportunity to create friends that will last a lifetime. Playing sports allowed me to become a better person overall. I grew up and learned to take responsibility, learned how to manage time more efficiently, and acquired the skill to learn in creative ways. My Sophomore year I took these skills and applied them to baseball, which paid off my Junior year. I became the Co-Captain and won the Coaches award for my team. Sports played a major role in my growing up stage of life, the
Growing up in small towns, there are two very important things… and that’s family and sports. Sports are the center of life no matter how old or young you are. I played in a wide variety of sports throughout my life, ranging from tennis, to soccer, track and field, basketball, and softball. Sports taught me discipline, how to play as a teammate, and how to play independently. Although it was sort of expected of me to play sports, they were more of a leisure for me than anything. Sports are still one of my favorite things to do in my free time, they’re not only fun but are also a stress reliever for
My greatest skill is being able to play volley ball . I have played volleyball for over six years now and I quit my senior year fall season . From all the years playing volley ball it was the one time that it affected me negatively and for the first time, I wasn't enjoying volleyball .I wasn't getting enough sleep from coming so late from games.I was also not getting enough time to complete my assignments . To top it off I would be pretty upset from not playing so I decided to quit , because it wasn't benefiting me at the moment being.
I like to keep myself active by doing tennis, not only it help me relieve my stress but also teach me how to work with others and learn from one another. Another thing that I enjoy doing is being in LAT which stand for “Lancers Action Team”, we do a lot of volunteer work like going to elementary school and read to the kids or going to the old people home to make crafts and play bingo with them. Doing things like that make me feel like I’m adding more valuable things to my life and also open my eyes to many things in life. As I grow and learn I have becoming more responsible towards my action, I know what is good and bad for me. I’ve learn to see what I am capable of doing and not to set limit for
Growing up, my father always pushed me to do sports. First it started off with soccer, then baseball, a little bit of basketball, and ended with football. I did not understand the competitive and physical benefits at the time but I was still very much interested. Soccer was always a fun sport as a child, aimlessly running around with a ball between my feet. On a couple occasions I happened to get hit in the face with a ball, which developed a disinterest for the sport in six-year old me. Baseball became a big sport for me most of my life, until I was struck at the batter’s mound hard, in my side, by a baseball. I was too afraid to ever go up to bat again. Football, the prime jewel of American sports, was the one thing I played from the second grade to freshman year of high school. I was always too chubby, too slow, to pursue a larger role on the team such as quarterback, or wide receiver, even linebacker, so I was stuck to the offensive line.
In the long run, I stopped playing football and decided to come to Job Corps. I think I made the right decision but I still have the love of sports that I use to. I plan furthering my football career after Job Corps. I plan on going to ULL or the University of Miami to play football and make my family proud. I will never stop chasing my dreams and being the star player I want to
So the debate about considering bowling as a sport has been a highly debatable issue among sport enthusiast. The polarizing differences in this debate come mainly from individual personal beliefs of what requirements a sport should have to be considered as such. That is to say, many consider the act of throwing a ball down an alley more of a leisure activity, while others who are more engaged in this activity see it as a buyable form of athletic activity. So considering the view points of both of these arguments, it is my honest personal belief that bowling is and should be considered a sport because it in-fact does seem to have all the qualities and symptoms that all confirmed sports share. My stance stance on this debate not only comes from
I also started playing sports like football and wrestling which I am very passionate about because I took it as a blessing that my body was healthy enough to compete in sports and took advantage of that opportunity. I even plan on running out door track in the spring in order to become a more rounded/skilled individual.
Outside of academics, I would love nothing more than to be involved in the sports and spirit at Columbia. Although, I am not an athlete myself, I hope to become involved with the football and wrestling teams, whether it be cheering in the stands with my fellow students and spreading school spirit, or earning a position to work either team. I was a wrestling manager all four years of high school and would surely jump at the opportunity to be a manager of the Columbia wrestling team. Wrestling, in general, is not the most popular sport. I feel that the sport of wrestling is overlooked by students, since most have never been exposed. I would love the opportunity to help expand the wrestling community at Columbia, as well as grow the sport in general.
The sport I am choosing is bowling. I am choosing bowling is because it is different from traditional bowling. While there are some modifications made for athletes with forms of physical disabilities, the majority of athletes involved compete using the same rules as athletes on professional tours. Special Olympics Bowling is offered in greater than twenty nations and every U.S. Bowling teams are grouped in divisions by the athlete's age, gender, and ability. They may choose among a number of different events, to include singles events for women and men, doubles, and mixed-doubles. Athletes with physical disabilities may participate in either assisted or unassisted ramp bowling. The game of tenpin consists of ten frames; players deliver two
Sports are something a lot of people love, softball was my favorite. I had also played volleyball for a long time, however after my freshman year I lost the desire to play any longer. My heart was with softball, doing anything and everything I could to make myself the best player I could be.

In ten years I see myself playing football or basketball because I love to play sports. I know I will never give up on sports because i would love a job that is one of my most favorite things ever. You know everyone in the world wants to have fun and get paid for it. But if i had to choose between one or the other I would pick basketball because I love to run and I feel like i’m really good when I score. And I love playing with other people.
I would learn that only the determined would continue to our eighth grade year. The responsibility of playing football was huge. Having enough time to do my homework, sleep, and to my chores at home was difficult.
