Afterwards we discussed each clip and what they were about. We talked about what worked and what did not work in each video clip. The students then worked on their own writing assignment about What is their motivation/ inspiration? They also had to talk about Who is their Inspiration? The results are the following. Please enjoy:
My inspiration is
`Sure my friends make fun of me, but I am still their friend after like lets say 5 years, especially Ryan, he’s been my friend since when I was like 3. I am proud that I have enough strength to still be friends with them. I have two youtube channels, and after major criticism on it, still post things. I am a gamer, and I keep coming back to it, I usually don’t change my mind, and I’m mostly loyal. I am nice, and keep secrets most of the time. I was born on March 27, 2003 went to Veterans, and I’m at O’Maley. I am smart, and hope to go to college, where I can use my smarts for good. To be honest, I’m a nerd, and a geek, but that doesn’t stop me from being friends with the “cool” kids. I try to stay positive, but every bubble bursts one day. That is my inspiration, and I hope it stays the same.
My inspiration is Ray Lewis. he is the retired middle linebacker for the baltimore ravens.
Ray Lewis inspires me because of his dedication for the game. Ray Lewis is a very emotional player, He played the game with a certain level of intensity that i just really loved and respected. Ray Lewis was born in 1975, his nfl career lasted 17 years he retired in 2012 the year they won the superbowl. He also won a superbowl in the year 2000. Ray Lewis attended the University of Miami. He had one brother named Keon Lattimore. Ray Lewis was drafted into the nfl at the age of 20, in the year 1995. Ray Lewis has had a phenomenal 17 year career, and he is my inspiration.
Major injuries ACL controls rotation and forward movement of the shin bone. Losing this rotation can end careers or even put people in wheelchairs. The ACL connects from the bottom of the fibi to the top of the tibia. Losing an area in the knee like that could make easy things like standing hard nevermind it could end NFL careers. Lower leg moving to rotation to the thigh leg being twisted inwards middle line of the body. If he knew to protect that area of the knee more it possibly could've stopped the injuries. The MCL is located on the middle knee and gives the knee stability. Without that knee stability a leg could collapse and end your career.
Describing AP. He used the torn ACL and MCL as an opportunity to come back the next year and be the mvp in the nfl and was only 4 yard away for breaking the single season rushing yards. He also used this injury to get better at the game once he came back. In 2012, Peterson became the sixth fastest player to reach 8,000 rushing yards, ending the season with 2,097 rushing yards, just nine yards shy of breaking Eric Dickerson's single season all-time record. Peterson amassed 2,314 all-purpose yards from scrimmage in 2012, tying Marcus Allen for the eighth-highest total ever. For his efforts, he received the NFL MVP Award and the AP NFL Offensive Player of the Year Award for the 2012 NFL season. Peterson also achieved the #1 spot on the NFL Network's Top 100 Players of 2013.

Are obstacle was all and mcl injury on Adrian Peterson it is important because it can show people they can overcome an injury no matter what is is. The opportunity is incredible because someone was able to come back from such an injury and excel in his area of work. If Adrian Peterson didn't work as hard as he did we would not be able to come back from his injury.
my inspiration is Gabi Butler. She is an all star cheerleader for a cheer team in Florida. She cheers for Gym Tyme Blink. If you are not into cheering or know about the cheer world then you probabl y do not know who Gabi is. she is famous in the cheer world she is especially known for her super flexability. When she was about 8 years old she was detirmaned to make herself double jointed, her mom said that she did in a week. When Gabi puts her mind to something she makes sure that she gets it done. She is a three time world champion which means she has won a huge competition against 1,000 teams and her team came out on top three times in a row. At that time she was cheering for California All Stars Smoed. She orignally lived in Florida so that is why she now cheers for a Florida team. Gabi Butler is an inpiration to so many young cheerleaders out in the world especially me!!!
Jennie Finch is my personal inspiration! She was born in La Mirada California on September 3 ,1980. She is my inspiration because she went to the 2004 and 2008 olympics for the USA softball team. Also she is my favorite because I play softball and she is an amazing player!! Also she had a child and right after that she didn’t give up on her career!! Also she is an amazing person!!!!!
My Inspiration is Michael Jordan.He is my inspiration because he is from the Brooklyn New York and that is not a good place to grow up.Michael Jordan was cut from his basketball team in high school because they said that he was too short he was 5’5”.But he didn’t give up.He kept practicing until college.Michael Jordan went to North Carolina for college.He won the NCAA Champion and the ACC player of the year.They also later on retired his number.In 1984 Michael Jordan was drafed in the frist round number 3 by the Chciago Bulls.
My inspiration is Bobby Orr because he changed the way a defenseman in hockey could play. The way he did this is by scoring the most points and getting the most assists in a single season. This changed defense from always being back protecting the net to being able to rush up and score. This is how Bobby Orr changed the way a defenseman plays and inspired me.
This is Mark Thomas. he is my inspiration. Mark has a disease… called Morquio Syndrome. Morquio Syndrome is a disease that makes your body too small for your organs. I chose Mark for my inspiration because while he has this disease he still stays happy. Mark is also a YouNower, younow is an app where you can live broadcast yourself. kind of like a you tube but live. Mark is 14 years young, he was born on March 29, 2000. He also makes music.lys which is kind of like a vine but not.

My brother is my inspiration
My brother is my inspiration because he is going to college. He is the best role model because he is good at school. He was good at football. My brother grew up in gloucester he played for the tigers for football. My brother went to The Gloucester High School. He is going to Southern New Hampshire University. His birthday is the September 21 .
My inspiration is Marcus Smart
He is an amazing basketball player and I hope to be like him someday. I was watching him one day play celtics vs raptors. The raptors were up one point. Celtics had one chance. There was about 1.6 seconds on the clock. They pass it into Smart. He throws up the lay up. As he does this he falls to the floor. I GOES IN!!! Everyone in the crowd is cheering. And Marc sits there with a slight smirk. The raptors thought they had it, but it was over. The raptors walked over to the benches with a sad look. Me and my dad were celebrating as the celtics won their game. And at that moment I knew, I wanted to be just like Marcus Smart.
