    When I was in elementary school I played soccer and was fairly good at it too. I was a fast runner and great both at chasing the ball and occasionally tricking the other team by kicking it backwards. I lost interest in soccer after a while, only wanting to attend the games instead of practices, and stopped playing. Years later, I attempted to pick it up again. My siblings and I all went to play homeschool soccer, and there were over a hundred kids in different age groups. I was 13 or so, and I…

    I have been playing soccer for an organization called AYSO, since the age of five. This organization is overseen at Liberty Park, which previously was a burn dump before the conversion to a park. As a kid I was very care free and never thought about the consequences that may follow an ignorant decision. Over the years I adopted the nickname “wild child” by my parents because I wore shoes the least I could, but my bad habit quickly changed in the matter of one day. It was a hot afternoon at…

In the NCAA, though they do have a coin toss, both teams switch off getting the ball starting at the 25-yard line and are given an opportunity to score. This allows both teams defenses and offenses to see the field in overtime,…
