Football is not just a sport, it's a lifestyle; one that started when I was 8 years old and never taken for granted. I grew up watching a single mother raise a boy through adversity while being a role model of perseverance, hard work, and passion in always finding room for improvement. She taught me to never fold, but chin-up and work a little harder for what I want. I understand academics are not my biggest strength, but I keep A's and B's because I am determined to make my education just as important as football. I am looking forward to finding the perfect opportunity to support my growth as a player, a leader, a man, and a contributing member of society.
