Personal Statement

For the past 8 years of my life I've striven to become not only a better athlete, but a more mature young man. Football has instilled many values in me that have molded me into the young man I am today. Every since I was 8 years old, the game has preached discipline, hard work, dedication, and a firm understanding of brotherhood.  I've applied these many lessons in multiple areas of life, and not just out on the field. These lessons have assisted me in becoming a great student and has allowed me to accomplish a 3.0 GPA.  I am a favorite among a vast majority of my teachers through my displayed effort, discipline, and respect. On the field, I am highly favored by my coaches as well and I am praised due to my natural athleticism, my coachable mindset, love for the game, and leadership. I know there are many athletes who come through NCSA with the same credentials as I possess, but what seperates me most from them is my hunger. I have somewhat of a chip on my shoulder, and I view the game from a true competitor perspective. I'm in a position in life where I need to make it out to give those around me a chance to see a finer life. I hate losing and to me losing isn't just a game I was defeated or a negative tally on my record, losing to me means that I was knocked one step closer to failure. In the position that I am in, failure isn't an option. Success is what I'm grinding for daily.
