Ever since I was eight years old, I have had a love for sports. My father has always been very athletic, and I try to follow in his footsteps. Throughout my life I've played soccer, lacrosse, track, wrestling, basketball, but football has always had a soft spot in my heart. I've played football since I was in the 3rd grade and I plan on playing it for as long as I can. Due to my size, I put in work where others might not, to give me an advantage during competition. When I was in middle school that's when I really started to do more outside of normal practices by lifting weights and various workouts. Throughout the years my dad has had to travel more than half of the year for his job. There are times he may be gone for weeks at a time. Although he is gone a lot, he never fails to push me and keep me accountable when he is out of town. The year I learned how to push myself the most is when my middle-school football team went to play at Ford Field (Detroit Lions Stadium). Ever since then, I know what it takes to win and be a champion. Now that I am almost a senior, football has taught me many valuable traits such as accountability, patience, and the ability to be self-motivated. Football has done a lot for my life and I'm excited to see what it has to offer in the next level. Outside of football I hope to maintain at least a 3.9 GPA to finish out my high school years. Once high school it over I am going to college to get at least a bachelor’s degree in the field of engineering. I am already training for my senior year of football and I am excited to see what it will do next in my life.
