m. Due: Sep. 29, 2008 Essay #1 Narrative A major role in my life would definitely be sports. It is almost as if I look up to sports because I could not live without them. Sports pretty much define me as me. I love to play sports as well as watch all kinds of sports on T.

V. and if I could ever go to a game and watch the players play live I would be thrilled. Basically sports define me because I am ambitious, I finish what I start, I set goals for myself, and I am a fierce competitor in which I love to win and I hate to lose.The greatest part about sports to me is living for the moment when the game is on the line and the pressure is on can you come through and make a play for your team. I live for that moment it is almost like an adrenaline rush that puts me out into a zone to where no one can bother me; it is like I am in my own little world just focusing on the prize. When I grow up I would love to play a sport as a professional athlete but if that does not happen than I will focus my carrier as a sports agent.

football team at North East High School. We as a team were not that great and pretty much lost all our games that season; but there was one game that we did win. That game was against Aberdeen. In the first quarter one of our players had fumbled the ball and Aberdeen scored a touchdown and went up 6-0.
