My desire to play football started in middle school, late by some standards. As I got more familiar with the game and continued to grow physically and as an athlete I realized there might be a future in college athletics and beyond. I am coachable, motivated and a hard worker. Throughout this summer training I have been working out with the team and most days even after practice head to my local Rec Center to do additional conditioning whether it's weight or cardio work or even mixing it up playing basketball or swimming. Completing my 9th grade season my coaches discussed my potential as a starting sophomore. This really excited me and I have been working hard all summer to ensure my starting position. I am not afraid of hard work in addition to school and football I have lined up a job this fall once I have my license. I don't have all the answers today, but understand I must work hard academically, as a leader, and as a teammate if I am going to have a shot at the next level.
