Throughout my life my mom has been my biggest fan, teacher and supporter of my journey. Growing up watching my oldest brother play football started my passion for the sport. Listening to him talk after a game, coach my middle brother and having game day brotherly bonding time have always been my best memories. From the first time suiting up in pads and feeling the excitement and fear of making a tackle has fueled my love of my sport. Even though being told in pee-wee football I was to big, I needed to get under the weight limit and riding the bench two seasons,. I never allowed the negative to stop my passion for Football. My mom has never let what others said about being too big, not fast enough, not smart enough stop me from continuing on. She helped me preserver through all the negative, worked with teachers, coaches, and my brother to succeed. Even though I have learning struggles, I have an amazing support system at my school and home. We work together, just like on a field, to succeed in my education. I use the values I have learned on the field to become a better student. Always keeping my head high when things are at the worst, doing my best I can daily, along with fixing what needs to be improved upon. My positive attitude and mental focus helps me on the field at watching for the next play, getting the tackle to get the win, and even when we are loosing never stopping giving 210% in the game and in life. Even though I struggle at times with learning, I continue to over come my dyslexia by working with teachers and my peers to succeed. I look forward to graduating and going onto college. I am interested in going into business management but on a smaller scale. With my education I hope to open a bakery one day and share the love of baking my mom has taught me with others. I also would like to have classes in my bakery showing other young men/women how to make pies, cinnamon rolls, cakes, breads and cookies. That there is no obstacle to low or high that once you put your mind to it you can't over come it.
