One of my proudest moments was when I was eight years old and my team went undefeated all the way through the championship bowl game. That was my first year playing football and a time I will never forget. Football has taught me that it takes hard work and commitment to be successful in life. It is a great way for me to make my way to and through college too. Football has taught me that anytime I get down I can get back up-- no matter what. There are so many things I love about the sport...but my favorite part of playing on a football team is having a brotherhood. We are family and we treat each other with care, respect and commitment.
