Winning the nationals twice in Pop Warner and making top 10 plays and players for the game help me realize I could be more when I made it to high school. I was introduced to football at the age of 4 from my dad, I didn’t want to play at first, but my mom encouraged me to play it, and from that moment on I told myself I wouldn’t let my mom down and I would do it for her. My goddad has helped me work my hardest in school and is pushing me to be my best all around. I learned from playing football that people look up to me as a leader, even the older guys. So I took that leadership and put it to helping my classmates in the class when they needed help. I always had the gift of leadership, I just needed the right thing to bring it out, and football did it for me. My leadership skills have brought my team closer and more disciplined.
My goals for high school are to finish with A’s and B’s and keep my G.P.A. as high as possible. This is noticeable through my acceptance of the National Honors Society. As far as college, I hope to stay more focus than I am now because I’m going to be more independent and on my own, but I hope to have the same mindset with maintaining my grades of A’s and B’s and turn in every assignment on time. I had to overcome a lot of obstacles to get where I am now like doing track. I didn’t like track, but if I would’ve never done it I wouldn’t be faster than I was before and so I’m glad I did it. Two of my best characteristics are that I’m a fun person to be around and I am very open. I pray for a successful career in football, but if that doesn’t work out, I plan to complete college with my degree and become either a Marine Biologist, Physical Therapist, Architect, Astronomer, or a Zoologist. I am excited about my future and looking forward to giving it my all.
