Goals are not something you set and hope one day they come true. My Goals are something I want more than anyone and I will do whatever it takes to achieve them. Getting a scholarship is my main goal. It is a necessity to attend a college that will help me do my best academically so that my major will support me mentally and financially all my life. As well as going to a place that makes me feel as comfortable as my own home does. It’s imperative to attend a school that will help guide me with personal decisions in life.
If I was sitting in front of any coach trying to earn myself a spot on their roster, I would simply tell them this. I am one of the toughest players you've seen. I play injured and I play ill. I am the definition of a team player. I push myself to the max. I am highly aggressive, no matter how big, strong, or fast my opponent is. I take full responsibility with what goes on with the offensive line. On and off the field. Always trying to make sure we keep ourselves in check 24/7. As players and as men. All the positions I can play include, offensive line tackle, guard and center. I do feel more successful playing right side, But I am not afraid of a change up. I played nose guard for defense my freshman year on JV as well as right tackle.
I believe what separates me is my work ethic and the will to never quit. I am up for any challenge. I will always give 110% in any task I am given. As my Head Coach, Aaron Sheppard said, not long after we started working together, “I do everything that I am told to help the team win, up and down.” I can guarantee he will still say the same thing and more. I've played baseball between the ages of 4-11. I then realized that my passion was somewhere else. I started playing football for Pop Warner at age 12. While Most people I've played with have been playing football their whole lives, I had to start from scratch. It was my fuel to be better. My drive. I had to work harder than anyone else did, just to prove my worth. That is something I will continue to do for the rest of my life. My motto is and always will be this. “Hard work Beats Talent.”
