“This I believe”

Everyone has there own opinion on what they believe, some people believe in religion or material products, but personally I believe in sports. I believe in this because of everyone on a team is working together. This I believe because if not everyone works together it will mess up the entire thing. Everyone has their own specific job that they have to do. It is not just football other sports that are big on teamwork like baseball, soccer and hockey. When I was younger playing sports I thought the point was mainly to score more points and win. Now that I am older I found that my winning is only half of the entire story. The other half is being a team player not just on the field or court but in life. Sports teach you that you can’t get through everything by yourself. Not one person can do a job; it has to be a large group of hardworking, determined people that all have a common goal. Other people may not agree with me but, personally I think that teamwork and dedication is one of the most vital things you will ever need in life.
