Life in High School by Brian Collins

Life in High School by Brian Collins

In my day-to-day life, everything is usually in some way related towards football. I play high school football for the Lodi High Flames. As I said before, my life somewhat revolves around football because it is something that is going to advance me to where I want to be.

I plan on getting a scholarship for football to help pay for college. Football has made me into a stronger person and gives me the motivation to keep my grades up. Football helped me make friends and fit in when I moved here freshman year. I came in with no previous football experience and am here now as one of the leaders of the team.

To Back Down or Not to Back Down? by Katie O'Connor

Runners to your mark, the gun is lifted into the air. Set. Bang. Everyone is off on the race of their life. I made it to sections in cross country twice, once as a freshman and again as a sophomore. Only one thing really separated those two races. Durning the sections race durning my sophomore year I fell in the first three minutes of my race. I blacked out and hit the ground. Ninety runners passed me, no one thought to ask if I was okay, or help me up. I don’t remember falling, all I remember is I had to run like a batt out of the underworld if I wanted to get back into the race.
