My athletic abilities and achievements have come from hard work and sacrifice. As I get older, I can see how hard work translates into every aspect of my life. I work hard at football practice, school, weights, church, and with my family. It is who I am and it is what I do. Whether it is waking up every morning at 5 AM to get weight training in before school, working hard to understand difficult concepts in class, or spending extra hours studying game film, hard work and sacrifice have become my best attribute. Part of this sacrifice comes after high-school where I plan on serving a 2 year LDS mission for my church. Afterwards, I plan to invest all my hard work into becoming the best student athlete I can, and fulfilling my dream of continuing my football career.
