My First Touchdown

May 29, 2008
By zachary branson, Discovery Bay, CA

The whistle blew

The ball was kicked

It soared through the air


I caught it

I ran

I got tackled


We started our drive on offense

They handed the ball off to me

I ran as hard as I could


A juke here a juke there

I ran into the tackler

He missed the tackle


Only 30 more yards to go

I spun the guy missed

A guy tried to tackle me but I stiff armed him


I was almost there only a few guys to beat

I ran as fast as I could

And the safety hit me


I thought I was tackled

But I wasn’t

So I kept running


I could smell the end zone

I high stepped my way in

The ref put up his hands I had did it I scored


It was my first touchdown

It felt so good

I will always remember that feeling of achieving something that great
