Someone once told me, “The harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph.” This story is true to me because you have to fight for what you want, and succeed doing it. The American dream to me is playing in the National Football League.
Why I want to play in the NFL is, I love the game and I am really good at it. The moment I knew I wanted to play football was when my grandpa took me to a BSU game. The way people were flying everywhere, and all the tackles, I knew it was the game for me. I want to play to be one of the best in history. To me it is the best game in the world.

How I will meet my goal is I will practice every day all day until I puke. I will play my heart out. I will be one of the most explosive, hard hitting players ever. I will work as hard as I can in school as well as on the field. Finally I will be the best I can be.

Are sports important? Is football one of the best sports ever? Some might say yes, some might say no. But that doesn’t matter to me; I think it is the best sport ever.
