Personal Statement

It is essential for me to be a part of something bigger than myself. I grew up an only child in a military family. While I was uprooted a great deal, I felt belonging as the son of a career Marine. This feeling was multiplied when I found football. Football has provided stability throughout the transitions of military life, father figures in the form of amazing coaches, and my teammates have become my brothers. Most importantly, I learned that I am disciplined, dedicated, passionate, persistent and resilient.

Starting in one of the nation’s most competitive divisions, the Trinity League in Southern California, has provided as much growth as can be had in high school football. I’ve experienced high highs and low lows. For example, this season we repeated as State and National Champions. However, I tore my labrum in preseason. I decided to play the season with the injury. While I was still able to contribute a great deal to the team, I wasn’t 100%. While frustrating, I learned how tough I really am. I’ve since had surgery and started rehab.

I have a lot to offer your college football program. I will be the hardest worker on your team. I will give back tenfold what is given to me in the form of mentoring and instruction. Once I graduate from college, I plan to follow in the footsteps of my mom and dad, both grandpas, and my three uncles by joining the family business - the military. My ultimate goal is to become a Navy Seal, and I can achieve that lofty goal in huge part because I grew up playing the ultimate team sport - football. My hope is to find a collegiate football home that will take me from where I am to where I’m going.
