I'm currently putting time in in the weight room, attending camps, and making connections. Working for a scholarship and chance to play at the next level.
I'm a good candidate for any team because I'm so versatile.
I begged my mom for over a year to let me play football. She was scared of the head injuries associated with football. You see, I had bacterial meningitis when I was 7 months old and my parents were told they wouldn't take me home. They were told all the things that would happen and what I wouldn't do and that I would likely be delayed physically and possibly mentally. When I kept getting better the doctors had no answers, but we believe it was through many prayers and because I was meant for something special. The day before my parents took me home, they were told I wouldn't walk for about a year. My mom refused to believe that negative talk and pushed me to get stronger. Ten weeks later, at 9 months old, I was walking everywhere. I overcame. I've been a fighter all my life and I've been blessed with a family that pushes me to be my best.
I am a very hard worker. I'm coachable and I can get along with anybody.
I have enjoyed working laborsome jobs since I was very young. By the time I was in second grade, during the summer, I did yard work for 3 people weekly. I would drive my mom crazy asking her to take me to my jobs. I saved my money all summer and then would invest in a big purchase. I bought my own lawnmower when I was in third grade. I tell you this to let you know, I'm not afraid to work for what I want.
I have continued this work ethic and I apply it to sports too. I show up to practice early and work hard. I try to step up and be a leader for my team. I try to keep my teammates positive and focused.
As for my character, my great grandpa told me when I was very young, "always make sure to be honest, trustworthy, and dependable, and make a good name for yourself, because when you have nothing else, you will still have that good name". I took that to heart and have tried hard to make a good name for myself and I think I have.
