Pops Proves Its Never Too Late

Le 17 mai 2016, 05:45 dans Humeurs 0

Pops first set the goal in high school, but when he graduated he thought he wasn't mature enough to pursue it so he enlisted in the U.S. Army.

He dreamed about it as a member of the 82nd Airborne as he became an Army Ranger. Later, in the first Gulf War, he thought about his goal again, as he also did during his service in the Kosovo conflict. For 20 years, through his Army career, a war, marriage and six children, Pops kept the dream and the goal alive.

Never mind that he was considered far too old to pursue his dream, Pops just couldn't let go.

When he retired from the Army at 39, he decided it was finally time to do something about the goal he'd set so many years before. He moved his family to Columbia, South Carolina and enrolled as a freshman at the University of South Carolina.

No, he wasn't considered too old for that. Many others, much older, have pursued college degrees for the first time. What Tim "Pops" Frisby did was even more special. At an age when even most professional players have hung up there helmets, he began working out with the South Carolina Gamecocks football team during the winter. Working out with players half his age, all of whom were young enough to be his son, he competed for a position on a Division One major College Football Team.

It was a goal that Pops had lived with for a long time and he began to realize it when coaches invited him back for fall drills. When South Carolina kicked off their season against the University of Georgia, Tim Frisby was on the sidelines wearing Gamecock jersey number 89. On September 25th, against Troy, the legendary Lou Holtz, head coach at South Carolina, sent Pops into the game for its final four plays. "I have a lot of respect for the guy," Holtz said. "A Ranger, 20 years in the Army, six kids. He loves this team. I thought it would be good to get him in. I'm sorry we could not throw it to him." But knowing the way that Pops Frisby makes his dreams come true, that's just a matter of time.

Disastrous rain in the south

Recently I learnt from TV many areas in the south have been suffering acutely from incessant rain. The land has been saturated by the rain. And sunlight could hardly be seen for so long. Some rivers, lakes and reservoirs rose to the warning water levels. Besides extensive fields, numerous urban streets have been submerged under water HKUE DSE.

Landsides can happen at any time in the mountain areas struck. Compared with that of the same period in the region in the past, the rainfall this year is excessive. I can not help sympathizing with those southerners whose life and agricultural production have greatly been affected by the flood HKUE DSE.

The south is not an ideal place to live in for its scorching heat and aggressive insects in summer and moisture all year round are unbearable for northerners. Its enchanting scenery can be appreciated on TV or by making a short visit. That’s why I firmly persuaded son not to apply for admission to any college in the south after knowing the results of his college entrance examination last year HKUE DSE.
