Guillaume Knobloch // THE KICK

Stepping onto that field,

Screams coming from the stands fade away,

All I can hear is my pounding heart.


Ten of my teammates line up in front of me,

My eyes focused on the block,

My mind focused on making the kick.





I have to make it.

For all the people looking at me,

My team,

My school,

I can not let them down.


The ball is snapped,

Two steps.




“Billy Knobloch’s kick is good.”
