Keegan, 13

Rainy Saturday morning, 30 kids on a field chasing a ball. Yelling and screaming at each other, parents cheering as they score. Taste the mud and rain as they hit the ground, getting hit hard from the other team. Pressure to perform again in front of a home crowd. Soggy clothes stuck to your skin, arms grabbing at you. Sweat dripping down your forehead, smell of mud up your nose. Watch the ball come towards you, feel it hit your fingers. Trying to see through the rain flying towards your face.
