Going to a smaller school in eastern Iowa, I have always been seen as the "bigger guy" due to my build. Because of this, I've had the opportunity to play multiple positions, offensively and defensively. This has helped me gain experience throughout the years and has helped me become a better and more knowledgeable athlete. This has also helped me create a role in being a good team leader on and off the field. I am a member of the National Honor Society with a current GPA of 3.71. I'm known for my acts of leadership off the football field as well. While succeeding in the classroom, I also wrestle and run track. I believe this is the prime example of a "student athlete" and I believe this makes me a great recruit for any college football team.
