At the end of my freshman year, my family moved from a large school to a very tiny community. The town of Oblong has a population of 600 people where everybody knows each other. I was the backup quarterback to a kid who is an all-around athlete, very well known in this community. This gave me the motivation to work hard in the weight room and on the field. I knew I would get my chance. My junior year we went to state playoffs, playing a team twice our size. My family had scheduled a Disney World trip, but I skipped it to play the game. We lost that game, but it taught me a lot about myself. Finally, in my senior year, I have a chance to prove myself. Oblong has not had a passing quarterback in almost 15 years. I am confident in my abilities to see that happen.
I am a very competitive person that loves the game of football. No matter where I am on the field I do my best to be positive for our team. I do my best to represent my coach, my school, and our fans in a positive manner. The game of football has taught me mental toughness, resilience, teamwork, and to be courageous. Education is of utmost importance to me. I want to make my family proud. I want to make a difference. Being able to play a sport I love would be a major perk.
