Personal Statement

I am a 6’0” 200lb Junior from Kansas City, MO.  No other way to put it, but I want to continue playing football after High School and make it part of my college experience, while continuing my education.  I continue to work to make myself stronger, faster, and smarter to get to that next level.   Freshman year started as a Varsity Middle Linebacker and Special Teams and received All-Conference Honorable Mention.  Sophomore year started Varsity as a Middle Linebacker, Fullback, Long Snapper and Special Teams - 92 tackles and received Second Team All-Conference.  Junior year started Varsity as Middle Linebacker, Running Back, Long Snapper and Special Teams - 90 tackles and received First Team All-Conference and First Team All-Districts.  I am not scared of contact, good hands, fast on the field, and mentally strong.  I maintain a 3.0 GPA average and stay active in my school and a member of the Athlete Leadership and JA.  In the off season starting my Sophomore year I wrestled for the first time and made Varsity and accomplished receiving All Conference Second Team and wrestling again my Junior year.  Also in the off season I am in agility training to improve my speed and skills as I get bigger.  My passion for the game of football began when I made the Suburban League – Northland Chiefs tackle in 4th Grade. I continued to play for them for the next 5 years as a tight end and middle linebacker – we were a football family. I took from this organization the understanding and importance of family, school, dedication, leadership and teamwork. My father was a huge influence through these years in reaching my goals – he was a teacher and middle school football coach and instilled in me to give 100 percent every time and to be a leader on and off the field. His life was taken early due to respiratory complications associated to muscular dystrophy - but I hear his voice, remember his encouraging words, and want to make him proud. My mom supports me 150% and definitely is a #1 fan along with my older sister. My desire is to play football in college and be an immediate contribution to the team. I will be the first to arrive and last to leave, watch film, give 100% to the sport and school 24/7 – 365 days a year. I have the drive to make myself the best I can be – “it’s not about how good you are, but about how good you want to be.”  I am open to colleges and locations, but looking for a program that will be a good fit for me athletically and academically.  I hope that you will reach out to my coaches to learn more about me and check out my film.  I am ready for the next chapter of my life after high school.
