   Off the fieldI'm student, neighbor, and son.
On the field I'm ateammate, captain, and linebacker.
Off the field I'm calm,cool, and collected
On the field I'm untamed, unleashed,and uncontrollably violent.
Off the field I eat, sleep,and drink.
On the field I run, sweat, and bleed.
Offthe field I'm a nice guy.
On the field I'm your worstenemy.

Football brings out personality, attitude, andemotions
that I cannot control.
The white paint of afootball field's sideline is a wallthat     divides me into two differentpeople.
Once I cross the other side of that wall,
There's no telling what I might do.
