Introduction

The Reach as One but Fail as a Team This was last year of high school and my last year on the team; we started the season off right by being 5-0. We were undefeated and nobody could stop us. This game was the talk of the week at school. Our goal was to win that night and we wouldn't let anything stop us. At the end of the day, I met my goal, but the team didn't. My alarm woke me up at six o' clock on game morning so I got out of bed to cut it off. I walked out of my room and went to the bathroom to wash my face and brush my teeth.

I had my music turned all the way up so I could be pumped. I arrived at school and parked in my usual spot. As I got out my car, I saw white jerseys everywhere. All of my teammates were getting out of their cars and going into the school. That night we were playing Auburn. We both were undefeated at the time. When I walked in the school, everybody was pumped and excited about the game. I was excited in my classes that day, but still did my work. I started drawing the plays so I could remember them. Nobody wanted to go home that day. After school, we ate our pregame dinner and prepared to go. We prayed for a safe ride, loaded the bus and were on our way. It was almost game time. ...read more.

Conclusion

After this they kept scoring and we were losing. We lost the game. The game was over and a lot of people were disappointed. I was mad we lost but was proud that I got a lot of tackles. I couldn't give up on my team like some of the others. I guess I got about eleven or twelve tackles, but I stopped counting. Yet I was still hurt we lost and so were my teammates who were in tears. Our fans were let down because the thought we didn't play hard enough. The next morning the defensive team had report to the school. We had to watch a tape of the game. I thought I had eleven or twelve tackles but the tape showed seventeen. We all had goals to do certain things that game and achieved them. I was just happy I achieved mine. No matter what happens if you can't win as a team you can win by yourself. ...read more.
