I am a dedicated student/athlete with goals to attend college earning both a college degree and an opportunity to play collegiate football at a D1 university on scholarship. I am a great candidate for a college team because of my dedication to the sport and maturity as an athlete. Aside from my commitment to my home team, I have competed across the United States for the past 6 years at college camps such as the University of Oklahoma (OU) for 5 consecutive years, University of Oregon (Ducks) for 2 years in the summers while also attend ending contact camp with Offense-Defense Sports (O-D) for the past 7 summers in multiple states such as Texas, Missouri, New Jersey, Louisiana, and Georgia earning MVP recognition in RB, DB and WR positions respectively for the past consecutive 4 years and competing in their O-D Bowl All American games over the winter breaks for the past 5 years. I have consistently accepts challenges athletically by competing against top talent and learning multiple positions so that when called upon to fill a gap and expand my Football IQ. What makes me stand out from other recruits athletically is that I have a solid understanding of the sport of football. My coaches over the recent years have required me to play multiple positions on both sides of the ball and I have been willing and able to support our team in almost any position - in one word versatility. The game has become much slower for me as I understand what's happening in the play as soon as the ball is snapped and can adjust to make the needed plays offensively and defensively. My strength in character is that I am an encouragement to my team with my actions and I encourage them as well on and off the field to achieve their best and stay on track. I am a leader on and off the field as I often been either the best player on my team or one of the top players and understand the responsibility that comes with that. I am coachable. One of the biggest lessons learned for me with the camps is that I have to walk on the field and quickly learn from the coaching staff and show that I've learned and can deliver in a quick turnaround not just for myself but for the team. One example is just this past summer at the Atlanta, GA O-D camp I attending I was asked to stand in as QB for the high school Junior and senior class. I am just finishing my 8th grade year and I am 5ft 5in tall. Not only did volunteer and play as their QB I was able to lead them to victory. The learning for me was that I cannot control my height but I can make adjustments in my game and communicate with my teammates to overcome adversity. Last but not least, academically I have my struggles as any student athlete would but I work hard to understand which subjects I have to work harder at and get the appropriate tutoring to ensure I understand the subject. I have proudly been able to maintain a 3.0 GPA and I have become at keeping both my studies and sports at the highest priority which means also learning to develop some of the same good communication with my teachers like I do with my coaches. Although I run track or play basketball in the off season, I have l loved the sport of football since I can remember and if I am blessed to be able to do what I love to do for the rest of my life that would be the ultimate happiness.
