A Memory of Disappointment Having just finished high school some of my most memorable experiences are also some of my most recent ones I had many opportunities to get involved in academics as well as athletics I chose to participate in basketball football and track As a team member I learned some valuable lessons to help me progress throughout life One experience I will never forget was a football game that helped me deal with disappointment Football was my favorite sport to play Ever since my head was big enough to fit in a helmet I have played football The feeling of being able to hit people and catch passes in the same game was an exciting rush I have played almost all of the football positions on the field along with two new positions my senior year While in high school football was not just considered a sport It demanded a great deal of time and commitment My football coach Mr Steve Weber has committed his whole adult life to coaching football He taught me about respect and that winning is not everything Still today when I need his help he is willing to offer advice Because of his care and concern for me it prompted me to do my very best for him as well as for the team When we won a game he gave us the credit but when we lost he took the blame Coach prepared us well for the game against North Daviess We knew the plays forward and backward We were emotionally pumped and physically ready This game would change my life forever If we won we would advance onward but if we lost my football career would be over forever The first three quarters were much like other games we had played so many times before The last quarter began Exhausted as we were we knew we were only one touchdown behind and could still win
