My name is Erik Swenson and I have just about completed 6th Grade. Currently (as of 5/24/10) I am 6'3" and 230 lbs. My 40 yd. time is an average of 5.8 seconds. My sleevelength is and I wear size 16 mens shoes already.
I have been playing contact football for 5 seasons now. I have always played against kids who are generally 2 years older than myself. This has helped me really develop into a better player and given me great confidence.
Even though I am still in Junior High, I am working very hard both athletically and academically as my goal is to play college football. My dream is to play offensive left tackle at one of the top Big Ten football teams (Michigan, Northwestern, Iowa, Ohio State, etc.)
I am currently participating is several football combines this year (Junior Rank, National Combine in San Antonio, etc.) as well as attending numerous football camps (Offense-Defense, FBU-Football University, etc.) in the summer of 2010.
Off the field, my academics are very important to me and I maintain an A average in most of my classes. I attend a small but excellent Christian middle school and I am receiving a great education.
I also participate in other sports such as lacrosse and basketball. Lacrosse is great and has really helped me develop quickness and agility for football. I also snowboard, ski, play paintball, and hunt.
