More than a Game


            All I could hear is my coach giving me a motivation speech about how I need to play better. Giving me lots of quotes like ‘hard work beats talent, talent doesn't work hard." Well this time I need to take all the words my coach said and put it in consideration.  It makes me feel so nervous, which even made me push my self harder. I

Also made me think about what I need to do to win.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                             

I was on my way to my basketball game where if I was to win I would go the championship game. Last game I scored 33 points along with 7assist. As a result I felt very confident going into this game. I felt very motivated. I felt like this was ‘more than a game'.


Warming up, I knew that I that I could play better than expected. I was talking to my team about how we have to play and how important this game was. I knew that everybody was expecting much from me. From my last game but this team was no joke they had very great players.


At first I played terrible shoting terrible shots. I said ‘They playing good defense' the  other team caught on fire making shot after shot. Coach called timeout. We were in the 3rd quarter with 2 minutes left on the clock. My coach says ‘Is-Ron you're  a talented basketball player with a lot of hardwork and determination you can play better basketball you've just have to show it. Then after a big deffict we came back to the lead 50-50 then my coach called a timeout so then I hited a big shoted from half court 53- 50

We won we are going to championship.
