I had a lot of fun reading this very interesting and energetic story. I could relate to it because I played football this year.
Football is my favorite sport because it takes so much work and it is so fun to knock someone to the ground. I like the part when he went in the locker room, and said he looked at the players and saw their bodies, some were covered in grass and dirt and blood. I could tell that he feels very strongly about the game and loves it as much as I do. It was cool to have him compare it to a war because in a way, it is: you try to make the other team give up or give in.
