2: There was a very good basketball player named Kenny. He loved the sport and played for the Penn State Nittany Lions. He spent all of his free time dribbling around and shooting hoops at the gym. He was an overall great athlete. The team had a lot of good players but Kenny was the best. He shot three pointers without looking. The one thing he hated though, was losing. That was the last thing he ever wanted to do. When he did start to lose he started to play bad because he started to give up. Coach saw this and was very disappointed.
5: Kenny also struggles in academics. He never was really smart he has always been a good athlete though. He always has tutors helping him though and makes through school. He wanted to be a professional basketball player when he was older thats why he says he doesn't worry too much about academics. “Kenny you need to pick your head up and start playing if you want to win this game” said coach Cartman. Kenny was doing very bad because they were in a losing situation. Coach didn't want to take him out though because everyone else is tired or hurt. The score was 68 to 50. The other team started to kill them. Coach made a decision to put Kenny out of the game because he was giving up. Kenny never thought that he would be benched for a whole quarter. The game was amazing though. They came back with 5 minutes to go while it was 103 to 80. They made the most amazing come back in Penn state history. Coach was so happy he was jumping up and down on the sidelines. On the other hand , Kenny was very mad. Coach saw this and a couple of other teammates did too and started to wonder why he plays. He might be good when they are winning but when they start to lose he just loses it because he cant stand it. Coach had a ton of questions going through his head at the moment , he almost thought that he should kick him off the team but thought that that would be a little too mean. So he decided that if he wasn't going to kick him he was just going to bench him for all games now.
6: Kenny was so mad that he just wanted to walk right out the door after being benched for one quarter. So after the game he didn't shake hands and say good game he just sat down on the bench and pouted. One of the other players was getting annoyed with his actions. He called a helper to help him try to get over the winning part and just have fun. he found someone named Barnie. Kenny didn't know about this guy coming and when he got there he simply said your at the wrong dorm and slammed the door in his face because he was still mad about being benched and them winning without him. He just wanted to quit but he couldn't because of how much he loved the sport. So at that moment he opened the door and let Barnie in. "I'm sorry Barnie i should not have done that" said Kenny. "It is ok Kenny i"m used to it, that is what i get from a lot of students. "Ok Barnie lets get started because i want this training fast because i want to play in the championship game whether we are losing or winning" said Kenny. As Kenny and Barnie were working they started to get along with each other and Kenny was so glad that he was here now he just has to hope it works. Kenny tested it and played one on one with a pro player so he would lose. he got very mad and quit half way through the game. "Barnie it's not working" said Kenny. "I see we will have some more work to do but we will get you better by the championship game. So Kenny and Barnie went back to work.
8: Meanwhile coach was started to get nervous the he wouldn't be ready by the championship game and that they would lose to Ohio State. But he knew that he would be better by then he just hoped that after all the practice missing he would still play well. That answer was gonna come fast. Kenny burst in the room yelling i"m better i just got beat and i"m better i didn't get mad! Coach was so exited that he would get a few more days of practice before the game. It was game time and Kenny didn't start but he was ok with that. When he went in and they were losing he did amazing and then they made a comeback and won the championship game and went 30-5. That was a story of Kenny and he never gave up even when he had to stop doing something he loved for a while.
