I developed my love for the game of football at the age of 7. I went on to the field as a shy kid that first day of practice and found my confidence and my passion. All through my youth career I played running back and was one of the top rushers on my team every year. Since then I have faced a lot of adversity. When I was in 8th grade I was told by the head varsity coach that I was to slow to play running back. I did not allow that to hurt me but to motivate me. I set a goal for myself to get faster and worked hard everyday to attain that goal. My Sophomore year I started varsity as both a running back and a linebacker. At that moment I realized that all my hard work had paid off. As a varsity starter I believe that it is important to lead by example by my work ethic, academics and good character. That is one of the things I like about football is that it always challenges me to be the best I can be for myself and my team.
I have learned so much over the last few years about myself through football. I have an extensive knowledge of the game and how to make quick decisions under pressure and trust my teammates to do their job so I can do mine. I think that trust and brotherhood is very important in any team because you have to trust and be confident that your teammate can do their job and that you can rely on them like family. I am very competitive and always want to do my best but I am also a team player and believe we win as a team and we lose as a team. This year my teammates and I were conference champs. There is nothing better than seeing all your hard work pay off and hold that conference champs belt. I would make a good addition to any college team because I am willing to do whatever it takes to better myself and my team.
