“Football isn’t about you. It’s about your team as a whole. So when you get discouraged you have to remember to keep going for the team and not just yourself,” said Noah Hugen, number nine on the ninth grade Chaffin football team. This was his reply to the question of how he stayed motivated through all the struggles of football. However, this was not really an answer I expected as most people have family or friends that keep them motivated. This answer, however, was almost selfless to a point. 

He hasn’t always been on the team as you’d expect though. He joined his eighth grade year; however, during the interview he said he would’ve tried to join his seventh grade year if nerves wouldn’t have gotten in the way. He was encouraged to join the team by his life long friend Ridge Hickey.

He had been playing since he was younger, but was blindsided when he realized he didn’t actually have most of the experiences or knowledge of the sport that his teammates had. However, he practiced and listened when given advice or other methods of gaining knowledge in that area so that he could overcome his struggles and difficulties.

When asked what makes a good team he responded after thinking for a second, “Teams have to set all their differences and boundaries aside for those four quarters so that they can come together as one unit for the game.” This led them to his favorite victory which was in his eighth grade years versus Kimmons which he said through a smile, “had good plays.” This will also be what leads them to the rest of their victories or through the struggles they may face on the way.
