I have been a fan of football since I played my first madden game at 3 years old. I have been playing football since I was 8. It took me a year or two to learn to love the game. When I was 10, I joined a team that had gone undefeated, and my competitive nature helped my love for the game bloom. I have been a big kid all my life. I have always been told to be nice and protect people, well in football, you do not have to be nice; you can be aggressive and use your size for destruction. In middle school, my team went 15-1 with many blowouts, and my desire to win grew to a desire to crush the competition. My freshman year taught me to be resilient. I have always been a smart kid. I took the PSAT as a sophomore, and have consistently had some of the highest test scores in my class.
