My goals and aspirations for my future are to get my degree in Criminal Justice and continue to play football in college. I have had to overcome a lot in my life. My brother was killed in Afghanistan in 2012 and through that loss I have learned that beyond anything else in life family is the most important thing to me. My parents influence me and show me everyday how to persevere and push through even though it might be the hardest thing to do. With my brothers loss I have also learned that life is short and to go for what you want in life. I work hard on the football field every play and do my best to work with my team to improve every practice. A quarterback is to be a leader on and off the field and character is a huge part of that. I hope that in everything I do other students, team mates and friends see what it means to be a good human being and treat others with respect. I do my best to keep the team on track and focused during games and keep them from getting down. It is important to not give up and keep pushing. I like to compliment team mates and show them good sportsmanship. Athletics have played a huge part of my life since I was in elementary school. In high school I play football and basketball. Football has always been a passion of mine and I work year round on getting better and to accomplish my goal of playing at the college level.
