Introduction to Belizean History (HIS1014)

Assignment: An event that impacted my life
Playing football
I have learned many things from participating in varsity football. It has changed my entire outlook and attitude towards life. Before my freshman year at high school I was very shy, had low self-esteem and turn away from seemingly impossible challenges. Football has altered all of these qualities. On the first day of practice the team warmed up with a game of touch ball. The team was split up and the game began. However, during the game I noticed I didn’t run as hard as I could, nor did try to evade the defender that was marking me or try to find holes to get open. The fact of the matter is that I really did not want to be thrown the ball at. I didn't want to be the one at fault if the ball slipped off my feet and the play didn't succeed. I did not want the responsibility of helping the team because I was too afraid of making a mistake. That aspect of my character led the first years of my high school life. I refrained from asking questions in class, afraid they might be considered too stupid or dumb by my classmates. All the while, I went to practice and every day, I went home physically and mentally exhausted. During my sophomore season, my position at backup guard led me to play in the varsity games on many occasions. On such occasions, I often made mistakes. Over the years, playing football has taught me what it takes to succeed.
