My name is Elijah ZizweMorani Thomas I am 17 years old and from Albuquerque, New Mexico. I started playing football halfway through my junior year at Thomas Jefferson High School in Denver,Colorado . I am origanally a swimmer and tennis player but all my life I wanted to play football. I know that my chance of going pro are slim so I had to find another aspiration, and that would be cooking. One day i see myself going to culinary school and starting my own restaurant. In my four years in high school i struggeled academically on the fact that I was to worried about being cool and having friends then I was getting good grades. As I have matured and I have learned that friends are not always going to be there and that my academics are more important. One thing that makes me diffrent from other athletes in my patience. I know that i can't always make the big play but what i can do is dissrupt it. I am TEAM player and my main focus is to make everyone around me better person on and off the feild and of course I want to win games.
