It was a few days before the big game and the Clovers were ready to beat the Tigers. There is a couple things that the team and I have to do before the big game is one big thing is you have to be focused. You have to make sure that you are in the zone and can make the right decisions about the plays and where you're supposed to be at in the right time. The other thing that I, Jimmy John, like to do is make sure that you are prepared to be put in and know what you are doing if you have to practice and make sure you know the whole team's plays, then do it rather than get to the game and not know what you are doing. Those are some good tips that I use to get ready for the big game that could put you in your spot for a good career.
The most important part of playing a rough house sport is to be careful of your head. Many people get head concussions that can cause long term head injuries that can also brain disease. That is why I watch out for my head so I don’t get a bad injuries. That is why are whole team wares all of the pads and the protection on our head. It is also a strict rule by our coach so that we can play the whole season without getting hurt or injured.
There is many ways you could get a head injury that could possibly kill you but even though they are common still some people dont get them. You dont always have to get a huge head injury just in football it could happen anywhere and in any sport. That is why it is most important to keep yourself protected and still have fun at the same time. Sports are all fun and games until it all comes crashing down and all of your hard work and practice is done because of one game.
It was the night of the game and me and my team had been using all of our practice skills to be prepared for this last game. It was the fourth quarter and I was rushing for a touchdown and smack I was on the ground and couldn't move. What was going on? It had all happened so fast I was pushed so hard to the ground that I had hit my head and I got a huge concussion. Why had it happened to me I had did everything I could to make this the best game of my life and it was all ruined by one hit.
