My path to becoming a starting QB as a sophomore is interesting. Since I was 6 years old, my dad who was my coach had me play center all the way through the 7th grade on my travel teams. Fortunately, when I went to play 8th grade for my middle school, my coach switched me to QB due to my size and abilities. One of my dad’s friends joked that it was the opposite of daddy ball, which was true and funny. Playing those years on the OL taught me some things that have helped me in my transition to QB. Just to name a few, it taught me to be tough, it has given me an obvious appreciation for my OL, and it has helped me be a better leader.
While my travel baseball coach believes I can play college baseball, my love for football is deeper as it’s the greatest team sport. It has taught me that if I want to be successful, me and my teammates have to maintain a strong work ethic and support one another. Our motto is F.A.M.I.L.Y. which means forget about me I love you. It brings together people from all walks of life and requires we work together. For the next two seasons, I’ll be diligently working in the classroom and on my abilities in football so that I can be prepared to excel in college as a student-athlete. If you give me an opportunity to play for your school, you can expect to get 100% from me, an impact player and someone who leads by example.
