Attending a high school football game on Thanksgiving has and always will be a tradition of mine. In this story the high school student, Troy Kondrla is getting ready for the game as his coach gives him words of encouragement. He is excited and ready to go after hearing what his coach has to say. Troy is putting all his hard work out on the field. After weeks and weeks of practicing, he is determined to achieve success in all of his games.

Unfortunately his team has been defeated. The look of defeat is found on his face along with sweat and dirt that shows how hard he played. Even though he put it all out on the field, he and his team did not come out on top. The player walks off the field in disappointment with the loss now on his team’s record. But he knows that he played and tried his hardest and that is all that matters.
