How can I be better today than I was yesterday? This is the question I ask myself everyday. There is no moment when I'm not really working on my craft. Coaches tell me I'm very coachable. I take everything they tell me to heart, whether it's a small mistake or a major fix I need to make. I use that criticism to better myself as a player and as an individual. As team captain, I'm always trying to get us on the same page--whether it be mentally or physically. I'm always pushing my teammates to break down boundaries, whether that means athletically or socially. Growing up, I didn't always have this mentality. Though I'm very connected to my Samoan culture and family, life started out rough for me. From those experiences I've found a new outlook on life which lets me see into the face of trials and challenges and say “Just try me!”
My name is Lucky Jessop. I’m a sophomore from Fremont, California. I play right tackle and defensive tackle. I like the offensive side of the ball more, so I hope to play offensive line at the collegiate level. In college, I hope to major in business management with an eye towards eventually working in sports management.
