Either You Have It Or You Don’t

Every little boy dreams about growing up and becoming a star in the NFL. For some their dream will come true. But for most, it will always remain a dream.
A lot of people may think that all you have to do to become an NFL football player is to be really athletic but there are several things besides that that have to happen. Yes, being athletic is a key part but it’s not the only thing you need to have. First, you have to not be afraid to hit people hard and possibly get injured. Then, you got to start your football career in high school. From there, if you are good enough and get scouted, you will go play for a college. The college you end up playing for will play a big factor on if you can make it to the professionals or not. If you go to a D3 college or even a D2 college, your chances of getting drafted to the NFL are way lower than if you go to a D1 college. Even if you do go to a D1 college, you’re not guaranteed to make it. You still have to have really good seasons with really good stats and get scouted by NFL teams. Then and only then do you have a chance to make it to the pros.
As you can see from this, there are a lot of things that have to happen for you to become a professional football player. Some people have what it takes in their blood and some people don’t.

  1. I don’t believe that you either have it or you don’t. I think some people can have it with hardwork and some can’t have it from being lazy. I came to Northwest on scholarship for baseball but I started to hate it and ended up just quitting. I definitely have it, just don’t want it anymore.

  2. People think guys that play football are stupid, big and the only they can do is play the the sport. It takes a lot more than what people think. This helps others see that it requires more than just athletics to be successful in a football career.
