I live in Illinois. My Sophomore football and basketball season has been ripped away from me. Surrounding states still play, yet, Illinois does not. The mental game right now has to be just as tough as your physical game. I still hold a 4.0 and I am taking every chance I get to still train, lift weights, and better myself. I just want to play so bad!
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, lifting weights in my garage, 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 and 4.0 finishing my Freshman year. Grades are always first (advice from my parents). One of my stronger fields is math. My interest right now is to become a certified athletic trainer. I am a very active person and hands on! If I don't make it to the big leagues, maybe I can help on the sideline with the big dogs by training!
