My Passion of Soccer

I want to tell you about a passion of mine that I have had since I was four years old. I love soccer! The first game I ever played in was very memorable because I scored five goals. I have played in so many games and have had an abundance of memories to go with them. I have tried every position and I have to say striker is my favorite. Goalkeeper is an exhilarating position but it can really hurt when they target shots at you.

One of the most astonishing feelings in the world is scoring a goal. I have scored so many goals in my lifetime and each one is better than the last. I wish I could go back in time to watch all of them and experience the emotions that came along with them. In high school, we had a rival team where I actually went to school previously. When we played them, I scored twice and I still manage to reminisce this feeling today.

I also have so many memories off the field because of soccer. I love to watch professional games and play FIFA in my spare time. I have made long lasting friendships from my previous teams. I still talk to some today and we see a few professional games a year. One team I really want to see in person is Bayern Munich. They have won many titles in both the German and Champions Leagues and they could even be the best team on the planet right now.

Soccer has given me a sense of freedom and a place to escape the world. Even though I am not playing in college, I still love the game. I plan to play at least for fun and maybe club next year. At the end of the day, soccer is just a game but it will always be a big part of my life.

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
