Fighting in School

February 8, 2010

Aisha Sultan said, “Many sports such as football, hockey, and boxing, are ritualized, acceptable violence.” These Sports may promote violence but they also help to control anger. As a football athlete, I know from first hand knowledge that football keeps me out of trouble in life. Kicked out of Cahokia’s Middle School for fighting, I learned a valuable lesson; with football on my mind, I am able to keep my self out of the office. I had a lot of anger before I found football. At a crossroad, I had to Chose football or the office. Angry, I left it all on the football field and became a better person. Without football, I would probably be just like a lot of my old teammates for little league. Most of them have dropped out of school. Narcotics have a hold on them big time. Football turns out to be both a promoter of violence and a way to control anger.
