Model Answer:
During my high school years, I was a fairly active person as a football or soccer player. In fact, I used to be one of the best players for my high school soccer team as long as I was in high school. So, I will go ahead and talk about an experience as a member of my high school soccer team.

Now, to introduce my high school team a little, it used to have one of the best junior soccer teams in our region not-so-long before I became a student there. Of course, nobody was to be blamed for this decline in soccer dominance of our high school soccer team except the terrible lack of interest in football among the contemporary high school students.

But, coincidentally, immediately after I became a student there, the school management decided to bring a new football coach, not only to train the students but also to bring back their interest in football. Besides, the school authority also announced different kinds of awards as well as extra credit points to those students who would be able to play in our high school soccer team, and it was at that time, the new coach decided to include me, in addition to another dozen students, in his soccer training camp.

Slowly and slowly, as the training continued, I became a reliable midfielder for my soccer team, with the ability to take long shots as well as shielding the ball under pressure. In fact, I even scored many goals as a midfielder in important inter-high school football tournaments for the next 3 years as a midfielder for my team.

Anyway, I left my high school a long time ago, but I still cherish the great memories as a team member of its soccer team, mainly because it taught me to be co-operative, competitive as well as to be a winner in difficult situations. I remember the experience also because my coach taught me a lot of things about life and living outside of playing as a footballer.
