FC: Growing Up by:walker saladini
1: All kids want to grow up fast. I didn't just want it, I needed it! I needed the pads, the helmet, the practice, and the hits. I had to grow up so I could play tackle football. When I was little, I didn't play a lot of football.
2: When I was little, I played football on the playground. Now I play on a football field.
3: When I was little, I didn't know all the rules to football. I thought pass interference was tackling the wide receiver while the ball was being passed to them, but its when you're holding them back from making the catch. Just putting a hand on them can get a penalty called on you for pass interference.
4: When I was little, I didn't have a coach to help me. Now any mistakes I have and my coach helps me fix them so I can play better without any flaws.
5: When I was little, I was too young to play tackle football. Now I’m old enough to play tackle football.
6: When I was little, football was my favorite sport. Now it is the only league sport I play and it is still my favorite sport.
7: As the guy came closer I was getting ready to make the big hit, and I wrapped up I stopped him from getting the game winning touchdown. The game was over we won, I made the game winning tackle.
