Football has been a passion for me since I was 6 years old, I love the physicality of football, the determination that football requires, and the teamwork that is crucial on every play. I didn't get the opportunity to play football in high school in my Freshman and Sophomore year because my school didn't have the program but I was the first student to sign to the program when it was established my Junior year. I played as a starter the entire season, have the first recorded sack in the school's history, and I played multiple new positions throughout the season. In college, I wish to continue playing football, and I also wish to continue to pursue an excellent education, because I know that without education, I won't be able to get too far in my desired career choices. An education is one of the most important things all people should receive because, without it, it's harder to succeed in life. I believe that I am a good candidate for a team because I have an intense drive to succeed, a no-quit attitude, I push myself to my limit every practice and game, I am a fast learner, and I am an adaptable player on the field. An example of my adaptability is during my Junior year when I had to switch from my primary defensive position as a defensive end to a cornerback, linebacker, and safety when players at these positions received injuries. During my Junior year, I also picked up interest as a running back and wide receiver because I wanted to utilize my speed and hitting power. After my Junior season ended, I began training with a former safety from Texas Tech by the name of Dorian Crawford to improve my agility and skills as a running back and defensive end so that I can perform better on the field and increase my chances of moving on to the next level. Some skills that I rely on when I'm on the field are my speed, hitting ability, intense drive, and adaptability as the play progresses. In school, I did slack off a lot in my freshman and the first half of my sophomore year. But I am trying all that I can to turn my life around, and football has helped me do that, with football, I've learned to manage my time, be responsible, and to be a leader. Football has also allowed me to focus better in school and it showed in the first semester of my Junior year when my grades improved. If there's one thing I would like to close with, it’s that I always want to get better, I keep trying over and over until I’m better than I was the day before.
