I have been playing football since I was in the third grade. And I still love this sport. For me, it is the perfect sport because you get to be graceful under pressure, and the competitive level is just breathtaking.
Football made me see life in a different way. It made me realize that we, as individuals, should set goals for ourselves in order to be successful.
The feeling you get when playing football in the UAAP is exhilarating. You get to be nervous and excited at the same time whenever a game is about to start.
Every college athlete prepares for like a year just for this tournament, simply because this is a chance for him to represent and win for his school.
I have missed out on the tournament twice already due to injuries. And it really sucks, because not only do I not get to play my favorite sport, I also don’t get the chance to represent my school in the most awaited league of every college athlete in the country.
I have been waiting all year for this tournament. And as early as now, I prepare myself physically and mentally for all the challenges that await me and my teammates.
It is not going be easy, but it is going to be one hell of a try.
