Personal Statement

Ever since I was little, people were telling me that I was going to play football. I was always big - being the biggest in my class ever since Pre-K.  Coaches would see me and say, "You're going to get your uniform dirty" or "Your mama is the only one that will be watching you on the field", meaning I was going to play on the line.  I started playing football when I was in 5th grade on a rec. team and I loved it so I kept playing. I was one of the three 6th graders that made the middle school team. I was asked to join a travel football team in 7th grade called the Laffayette Swampcats. I played middle school football and when the season was over, I'd play with the Swampcats.  With that team, I have traveled across this country playing football.  In one year, our opening game was in Florida, then we played all over Louisiana, and finally the National Championship was in San Bernandido, CA.  I was our local news channel's Sports Person of the Week (http://www.kplctv.com/story/30971816/sports-person-of-the-week-tucker-fontenot) in January 2016.  I was 13 years old.  I was also invited to two All-American games in New Orleans. I joined the high school team at Iowa High and was on the JV team as a freshman. I was able to get into a few varsity games this past season.  I also throw the shot put. I started in 7th grade and I was alright at it. I kept throwing it and in my freshman season I made it to regionals. I am very active in 4-H and FFA. I show livestock, am on the livestock judging team,  and do public speaking with FFA.  I work hard at everything I do and always have a positive attitude. I'm quiet and very laid back, until I walk into a competition, then something clicks and it's do or die.  Either I'm 1st place or I lost - there is no in between.  I want to be the best at everything I do.
