Rockstar Matt Posted December 21, 2010 Share Posted December 21, 2010 Well, I played football from the time I was 5 to about 17. My strong suit was defense and my favorite position was Linebacker, even though I am 5'9 and 150 pounds. I had great acceleration within the first 20 yards, and I was the most explosive in the first 10 yards for my entire team. I never had great top-speed. But, in high school, my coaches' insisted on putting me at corner because of my small stature. I have pretty good hops for a small white dude, I can almost dunk on a 10 ft rim. My biggest problem however, was that, I always thought too much. Meaning, I never just reacted, and I always over-thought every situation. Oh, and I have pretty good hands, so my coaches' tried to get me to play WR, but I stupidly, refused. If I didn't, I would have seen playing time on varsity. The times when I just reacted, that's when I played extremely well. I only played one year of JV then sat on the bench for Varsity, and I quit football my senior year because I needed to focus on my grades since they were dropping.I also been playing basketball since I was really little, but I've only been seriously about it since I was 13. I play every Friday and Saturday at a local park where I play with dudes much older, faster, bigger and stronger than me. But, I still hold my own. My proudest moment playing sports was a couple of years back, when I was playing a bunch of adults, as a 16 year-old (I'm 19 now), my team was down 18-6 (and the game we were playing, 21 points wins the game, and playing with the point system where a two-pointer is 1 point and a 3 is a 2 pointer), I single-handedly scored my teams remaining 15 pts to win 21-20. So in a normal point system, I would have scored 30 pts (I made 9 inside the arc shots, and 4 outside the arc.) I haven't been able to play in a couple of weeks though because I broke my finger while playing pretty badly. I blocked a dude's shot so bad, that I actually grabbed the ball out of the air with one arm instead of just merely hitting the ball towards the ground, but as I swung the ball towards my other arm to make sure I retained possession of the ball, my finger got caught in the way and from the middle knuckle, bent backwards so far, that the tip of my finger touched the back of my hand. Needless to say, that hurt like a mother f er! But other than playing basketball now, my only involvement is watching sports from the comforts of my couch Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
