I have played football since the fourth grade and I am extremely glad I made this choice. My dad pushed me to join the San Jacinto Eagles Junior All-American Team in hope it I would be able to play the sport in high school and eventually use it to get a college education. Football has given me a reason to try my hardest in school since both my parents and my coach said a 2.0 many be what is required to play ,but it won't get you into a college. Therefore, I have tried my hardest to maintain a 3.0 or higher GPA. Along with the motivation in school football has taught me a great amount of respect both for authority figures and my fellow players or pupils. I have also discovered my skill as a leader, it may not be the chant leading, yelling leader that is glorified in the movies, but I have been able to lead through example. My father and many other have always said hard work plays off and football has allowed me to witness that first hand. Since I was always pushed by either my father or a coach to give that extra rep or run that extra lap I eventually started to become more skilled than players that used to be the stars when I was younger. Everything down to my very running style has taught me that if you continue to give your all over and over again you will eventually gain the big runs. Although these are all skills I hold high, the most important skill I've learned from football is that everyone has their own way they learn and get motivated. This is a skill I can use in life later on and I believe will become the most useful and I owe it all to my football career and the coaches and players I have met along the way.
