Some people are talented in music and others in art. My talent however is the competitive sport of football. For as long as I can remember football has been my greatest passion. Since the age of seven years old I discovered my talent as a football athlete. I have learned how to work as a team and how to communicate well with others. Other then enhancing my people skills and my ability to work well with others, football has brought out a sense of leadership to my personal that has helped me excel in my school environment.
Every game that I play is a new challenge that I have to face and accomplish. I use the competitiveness I gained from football in my class room environments. The more I practice, the better I will become and all the hard work pays off in a victorious game. I implement the "practice makes perfect" philosophy to my school assignments and presentations. In order for me to get better at English or Math or any other subject, I have to do my homework and study routinely because that is the practice I need and can than demonstrate how hard I practice in any exam pass. Football has been my motivation to be a better student because in order to be able to play in the school's varsity team you have to be able to maintain a certain GPA which I have maintained and over passed.
football has taught me that I should never give up and that I should keep trying until I score my Playing a sport that has a numerous amount of varying factors to determine a victory has taught me resiliency. Sometimes I might not always win a game or score a touchdown but the good sportsmanship and ethics that I have learned from being a football player have taught me never to be discouraged. Even though my shot not become a touchdown I have learned to take risks in this sport and that is what life is all about, taking risks and trying to reach for your goals.
