    bullying. To be specific, myself and others would like to solve the bullying of high school athletes by their coaches. Unfortunately this past summer, I was cut from my high school volleyball team. This decision wasn’t based on the usual criteria for making a team which is and should be talent and dedication. The coach made her decision based on the fact that I wasn’t playing for the club she coaches at. High school volleyball and club volleyball shouldn’t and do not have anything to do…

    fans, announcers checking mics, slight chill in the air. The Burlington Edison High School football team runs onto the field. My cheer team and I prepare for a stunt as we are pumping up the crowd. Moments later I am thrown into the air, staring into the crowds. The next thing I remember was waking up, it’s a new day, and I am in a hospital bed. My eyes were blurry and my head was pounding. That night at the football game I was dropped on my head, learning to find I suffered a traumatic brain…

    next… right?” I thought to myself. I looked down at my outfit: tacky dress shirt, obligatory tie, creased khakis, and boat shoes. I put in the work, I dressed the part—there’s only one piece missing. “Ladies and gentlemen, this is our Hillsborough High School varsity lacrosse team,” announced the coach. Cheers and applause poured out from the crowd, but it left me choking back tears, distraught. All those Sunday afternoons on the field, those carved-out study breaks, it all felt squandered. I…

    A blackberry moment of mine was when the Elkhorn Area High School Varsity Football Team won the game against Delavan-Darien High School - the biggest rivalry in Southeast Wisconsin. Just talking about it puts a smile on anyone’s face that was at that game. This rivalry dates back to 1995 and has such high tension that the whole state knows about it. It was my freshman year of high school and I had not experienced the rivalry before but the upperclassman did a great job introducing it to us…

    I’m going to write about my first half of my freshman year of high school football. I was really good in 7th and 8th grade and I tried to push myself really hard to be as good as a high school varsity player and get a starting position. But I wasn’t good enough. I broke my ankle my last second from last game in 8th grade running the ball and got tackled and fell hard on it breaking my tibia and fracturing my fibula and tearing all the ligaments in between. I had surgery on it. They placed a…

    I can still remember the numbness that flooded my body after I took my last glance at that scoreboard for the rest of my life. I never thought the day would come where I would walk off that football field for the last time. That Friday night my high school, Kenowa Hills, was facing Mona Shores. This was the very last game of the season. Mona Shores was ranked number two in the state and reporters were already projecting us to lose. All season we anticipated this game. Although some feared it,…

    I showed my talents on Monday nights instead of Friday nights. My freshman year of highschool I was part of my school's junior varsity football team. I waiting for the moment I could go out and perform under the Friday night lights. Monday games were never what you’d hope for when playing football. The game started at around 6, so the sun was almost always going to blind you when facing West. The crowd usually consisted of everyone's parents and a few of your teammates younger siblings, so the…

    High school had been his private hell and now with the drama at home, life in general had become intolerable. The one thing he was thankful for was football. Being on defense, he was blessed with the ability to hit people on a regular basis. There was only one thing he disliked about football, although defense is critical in winning games, the defense was not as appreciated as the quarterback that could do no wrong. Trevor Lawrence, the bane of Alexander's existence, haunted him throughout…
