I am here with another blog. I have been doing a lot this year. I’m doing football this year. I will tell you how it feels to be in this sport. Cross country runs with their own weight, but football players carry their own weight plus pads. I have played in the Varsity team game against the Ravens. I truly believe I don’t belong in J.V. The reason why I think that is because I work very hard and make every second count. If the coach asked me to play on Varsity, I would say yes to his offer. I am the center for my team. The center is the guy who hikes the ball. The things that are good about football is that it is the most popular sport between my friends and I. Another thing I like is that you can be in contact with each other. The last thing I like is that you get a bright yellow jersey with a number and the name of your mascot in blue.

I really enjoy being with my wrestling team. I’ve made some good friends from The Vipers. The Vipers are a wrestling team from Caruthers – a small town south of Fresno. One of my new friends is Hunter and another one is Diego. I met Hunter three weeks ago and I met Diego at our last tournament. They are good guys and I’m glad I got to be friends with them. My younger brother says I can’t hang out with my new friends because they wrestle for a competing team but I hang out with them anyway. I like having a variety of friends and I like getting to know new people so I will still get to know friends from other teams. I have four medals since I started wrestling. I have two second place medals and a third place medal. I wear them on Fridays at school. People ask me where I got them, so it’s a good way to start a conversation. Fridays are my favorite days.
My O&M Specialist took me on a trip to Five Guys Hamburgers at Riverpark shopping center. We took the city bus and I learned how to use bus tokens. I ordered and paid for my own food. The hamburgers were great.
School is almost over and I’m looking forward to summer because I get to rest and do the things I love like swimming and staying up ate and playing Minecraft. I have been playing Minecraft lately and so far I have found a Nether Fortress and a Blazesponder. But, I’m also not looking forward to summer because I won’t see some of my friends I see every day at school.
Have a great summer.
See you later,
