I was born on Valentine's Day in Ul Yanovsk, Russia. At 26 days old, the woman who gave birth to me put me up for adoption. My mother and father flew halfway around the world not once, but twice to make sure that I would become their son. The sacrifices my family has made for me to become the young man I am today drives me to be the best at everything I do. My competitive nature comes from within and is fueled by my parents direction. If you're not first, your last! I have always strived to excel not only in sports, but with my academics as well and am a member of the National Honor Society with an interest in aeronautical engineering.
Since my younger days, I have always loved the game of football. My father has shared many stories with me about the '72 Miami Dolphins, Dan Marino, and the great University of Miami teams as he grew up in Miami. I have always desired to be a great quarterback- possibly the next Dan Marino- and, one day break all the collegiate and NFL passing records. I'd be thrilled to be known as the first quarterback to actually be a "Rocket Scientist"! As every coach that reads these profiles heard the same catch phrases and promises, I can assure you that once you meet me and experience my humor and knowledge, you'll be eager to embark on me and my family's journey that began on the other side of the world! Thank you for your time and consideration.
