Everyone has a special hobby, or sport that they love to do. It could be anywhere from singing, to playing baseball. My hobby is football. I love the sport and it takes up a huge portion of my life. I spend my time playing football for West Jr., but not only do I love to play the sport, I also love to watch other teams play.
My favorite NCAA team is of course the Missouri Tigers, my home state team, followed by Oklahoma, which just happens to be one of Missouri’s rival teams. As for the NFL, the Colts, and the Bears are my favorite teams, they are also big rival teams. I go to just about every Mizzou game, and if I can’t make it to the game, I always find time to watch it on TV. Watching these big time football teams inspire me to do better and play to my fullest so I can one day be as great at the game as some of these team players. Chase Coffman, Jeremy Maclin, and Chase Daniel are some of my idols for the sport of football. They are some of the greatest players at what they do. I hope to someday be as good as some of them.
I participate in playing football for my school. I am the starting Wide receiver, by to be more specific, I am the flanker/split end, which is sometimes referred to as the “Z”. On defense, I play the weak side strong safety. I have an important job, which is to make sure no one gets to the sideline and takes off for a touchdown. I am also on the kick-return team, the punt team, and the extra point field goal team. As you can see I play a majority of the game. So far this year I have started every game. I really enjoy playing football and plan to continue playing up through high school. High school will be a major step up from jr. high, but I think I can defiantly pull it off.
We practice every week day from 3:00 to 5:30 p.m. The practices are difficult, and require much discipline. Some people cannot handle all the running, and tackling, so they quit. It just shows those who are dedicated, and those who
