Jamal found his first dog Sparky and would sometimes go there and run and play with his dog Sparky. That's also where Jamal first heard about track. So Jamal quit track and said "I should play a different sport." Jamal tried soccer and said no I can't play this. Then he went to football tryouts at his Middle school and didn't make the team. So he went to Basketball tryouts and made 6 out of 8 three pointers and he said I can still run. Jamal made the cut and he was so happy that he could run again.
