First draft

When an athlete is really good at a sport that’s all they think about but what they aren't thinking about Is the career good for them so they can provide for their family, and also be happy with their job, or is it just a dream crushing sport that might end all their dreams forever? When it comes to sports some people think it’s not a great idea for a career because of the injuries that occur. But to tell the truth if people know how to play the game and know what they are doing then they will be fine. Many kids play sports when they are younger from football to baseball because their parents want them to be an active child while they are young. so when kids get to the age where they start to notice that they love playing sport they might see as being a pro one day a goal. But other kids might think that sports are not their thing and might just stick to the book. playing sports can be a successful career because people can have fame, money, and can accomplish their goals, but sports can also be a unsuccessful career because people can end up in a wheel chair, or wont even be able to accomplish any dreams they used to dream about.

Playing sports can be a successful career. After an athlete retires after having such a good career they try and spend some extra time playing the sport they use to play because they loved the game so much. A successful athlete said "Ever since I was little I dreamed about playing the sport and I set a goal to go pro and accomplished it." Another athlete said "after retiring from the game my life has gone good I got fans, fame, and I changed the game what else can I ask for?" Those are some reasons why playing sports can be a successful career.

Playing sports can also be an unsuccessful career because in a contact sport like football peoples careers can end in just on play from a surprising catch, to a devastating hit. Isaac Bruce all pro wide receiver said " when I was going up for the game winning catch I said to myself , " yes we are going to win" and then CRACK!!! My lights went out and later I noticed that my career was over like that." Careers can be ended or crushed by a hard hit like this one. Another reason playing sports is an unsuccessful career is because when an athlete retires it can be hard for them to go out into public without getting bombarded by a group of reporters. Asking how they felt after the injury or retirement. One last reason playing sports can be an unsuccessful career is because an athlete loses more then the activity of the sport after they retire. They also lose teammates, coaches, and all those involved in helping the athlete to succeed. Those are some reasons why playing sports can be an unsuccessful career.

When it comes to sports as a career there are many people in the world that think it’s a good career. But not everybody thinks the same there are people that think it’s a bad career because of the past. Some athletes said that “In this game injuries are bound to happen because it’s a contact sport. It’s just that some hits can be a career ender, or the hit might sting a little bit and end up on channel five for top ten highlights. Athletes train almost daily on perfecting skills and techniques required for their particular sport. Some skills such as team-work can be used in new areas, and there is likely to be new resources and skills required for their new job. When athletes get hurt the injury is most likely going to happen in a game it is rare for an athlete to get hurt during practice. But if an athlete was to get hurt in a game the injuries would verify from an ankle sprain to a career ending concussion. Those are some reasons why sports careers can be a good and bad thing.

Playing sports as a career can be good and bad. It's good because people can say they had fame, fans, and accomplished a goal. But it's also bad because people’s career can end in just one play or by one injury. So that is why playing sports as a career can be a good and bad career. When the word sport comes to peoples mind about a career people think many different things. Some people think that it can be good because it’s a shape keeping job, it gives people fame and fans, and most of all it can be a life accomplishing goal. On the other hand people think that it’s just a bad idea because of the career ending injuries, or the hassle it can give to retired players. When people think of sports some might think it can be a good career because it keeps people in shape, gives people fame and fans, and most of all they can help other people with foundations or fundraisers. And on the other hand some people think its bad because people can get hurt, retirement can also be bad for players that have a lot of love for the game, and pros also lose some people that are close to them like their coach, but playing sports can be a successful career if people and athletes are up to accomplishing and succeeding the goal.
