Brody- 1 - Last summer I worked with autistic children, teaching six of the high-functioning kids how to play soccer. I expected to just watch the campers attempt to play by aimlessly kicking the ball and then staring at it as it rolled away. One boy caught my attention, however, mainly because he wore a navy blue beanie in the middle of the summer. As I followed this navy blue streak, I couldn’t believe that it kept moving strategically after the ball while everyone else just stood around. Even though Josh was awkward and uncoordinated, he never stopped running the rest of that game. Even more shocking was that he displayed an aggression that would be hard to find on even my own school team. I saw a little bit of myself in him because I had always worked hard and reached goals I may not have reached on talent alone. As I watched Josh, I admired the way he enjoyed never giving up on a play. He always wore a big smile on his face whether he was successful in stealing the ball or not.
