My name is Virgil Haggard. I am NOT the best player ever. I was NOT born a natural athletic superstar. I have had to work very hard and dedicate myself to listening, being coached, training on the off-season, and working to improve what needs to be improved in my stance, moves, speed and agility. I work on my mistakes, ask how to get better, and to not make that same mistake twice.
What makes me a better player? I have been playing football since I was 8 years old and loving every season. Every season I have played both sides of the ball (offense and defense). I play with strength, heart, the will to succeed, and number one - as a team. I always know I will have room to improve and become better at any aspect of the game, on and off the field. I will never be Perfect but I will strive for Perfection.
I play multiple positions. Center, Long Snapper, Running Back, Linebacker, and Defensive Tackle. My size has made me move up in most levels of the Junior Football League Programs. My other sport, Basketball, coach can put me in at all positions. I train on the off-season, whether it's a personal trainer for speed and agility or helping my dad with the garbage route and throwing garbage all day.
My GPA has averaged 3.9/4.0 through my Junior High Years. Grades are always first (advice from my parents). I will have to think of what I would like to do in my field of study. I have a little bit of time. One of my stronger fields is math. I know that I want an active field. I do not want to sit in a cubicle in front of a computer all day (another advice from my parents). I feel this is good advice as I am a very active person and hands on!
