I started playing football at five years old in a Pop Warner League and I've played every year since. My biggest growth as a player would be during my sophomore year. I was able to fillin any holes that my coach needed me to. I played multiple positions including as a receiver, running back, outside linebacker and I even filled in as quarterback each game to give our quarterback a break during the games. I think I'm underrated at times, because I'm not flashy and I'm about the team. But I have the talent, speed, accuracy, and stamina and once I'm on the field my skills speaks for me. I have great football instincts. I have great character, and flexibility.
I'm about average academically. I want to go to college and I hope to play football with a program that is a great fit for me and I am a great fit for them, both academically and athletically. I plan to major in Biology because of my love for math and science. I've learned that once in football mode, I am mentally prepared and focused on the game, at practice, during film review, and during workouts at all times. I am an overall athlete and very versatile in my skills and knowledge. This year I plan to attend more Prospect Camps, Junior Days and Combines to gain more exposure. I am looking forward to playing football at the next level and I challenge any coach or program who is reading this to invite me out to see what I can do and how I may fit into your program.
I may be a great fit. See you on the field.
