About the Author My name is Jack Valenti and I am a Junior at Northville High School. I love to write children's books that help educate children about biomedical science. I hope you enjoy my work!
Today we will be learning about football so that i can prepare for my big game tomorrow.
In football there is an offense and a defense. The defense acts like your body skin, which is a non specific defense. The corner backs and safety act as specific defense in your body, which target specific pathogens, or in this case, opposing players.
The offensive line helps protect the quarterback from blitzes. Your nose hair does the same thing. The mucus in your body helps to get rid of a foreign invader, just like the O line.
When your body becomes sick it can become inflamed. In football, this is equivalent to when the defense spreads out to try and cover the offense from scoring. The coach will put me in if he feels I can make a play. In your body, the B cells make antibodies that help destroy the invader.
I play linebacker. Linebackers, like T cells, attack invaders trying to come into your zone or body. The main way that a linebacker makes a play is by tackling the other player. Phagocytes in the body attack invaders by engulfing the bacteria which is like tackling. Ive learned so much about football and the human body's defense!
