Each tire will be at a different height and distance from the line the thrower will be standing at. The second part of the challenge will be to hit the targets while on the run. In order to win, the thrower must hit all six targets. Catching: The teacher will throw the ball starting at 10 yards away. Everytime the student catches the ball, the teacher will step back 5 yards until they reach 35 yards apart. Once the teacher reaches that point, the student has three chances to catch the ball while running a fade route. The person who catches the most passes wins. Punting: The punting challenge is simple. The student will have 5 tries to kick the ball as far as possible using proper skill cues. The furthest kick is the winner.

New York Times

The first 18 classes led up to the final Championship match up between the New York Giants and the Denver Broncos. The Denver Broncos were favored to win the game according to the students in the class. The game was back and forth. The Giants would drive down the field and the Broncos would do the same thing right back. The game came down to double over time. Both teams kept stopping each other and no one ended up scoring until the second over time. The Giants ended up winning in the last minute of the game. The Giants threw the game winning touchdown. Nick Connected with Matthew for the game winner! It started out as a five yard hitch route. Matthew caught the ball and ran 70 yards after that running the time out on the clock so that there was no time left for


the opposing team to score. He ended up faking out three defensive players that tried to tackle him. After Matthew scored, his team met him in the endzone and they got into a triangular shape forming what looked like bowling pins. He rolled the football at his teammates so they all fell and it looked like he bowled a strike. The students used all the skills that they learned during the preseason throughout the regular season. After fine tuning all the skills, some of the students competed in the skills challenge which took place after the game. One student punted the ball, over 40 yards and set a school record. What an amazing way to end the Sports Education Model. The final day was dedicated to an awards ceremony to honor all of the students hard work and participation throughout the whole project. Some students who really stood out were honored for their efforts and commitments to the team and to the rest of the class. The Awards that were presented were Most Valuable Player, Most Outstanding Team and Most Improved Player. The students had an opportunity to vote for who they thought should get the awards but in the end the final decision was made up by the teachers.

Class Management and Behavior

Fair play and sportsmanship: All students are expected to always stay optimistic with all of their teammates and also the opposing team. At no point during the Sports Education Model should anything negative

or offensive be said to any of the other participants. On top of this in game play, although there is no mercy rule, running up the score on somebody and beating them by an unnecessary amount is inappropriate as well. Respect everyone the way you want them to respect you.

Fair Play Rubric: 0= never 1= Rarely 2=often 3=always

1. Shakes hands with opponents before to wish them luck and after the game to say they played well (win or lose). 2. No derogatory remarks to your team or the opposing team. 3. No foul play 4. Respects all of the calls made by the referee and the rules given by the teacher.

Standings for fair play
