Hello, my name is Eli Klenke and I attend Union High School in Union, Missouri. Football has been a huge part of my life ever since I can remember. It has helped me become a smarter man, more understanding, harder working, and a much better person overall. I became interested in football when I was a little boy, probably 3 or 4 years of age. My dad and I would go outside and play catch for hours it seemed, every night. I have learned that through hard work and practice that I am a very good football player. I have many goals in life and my main one is to get a scholarship to play football at a high quality college. I have had to fight very hard for a starting varsity spot ... there are kids older than me, so I had to show my coaches that I am a much harder worker and better football player than they are. I possess a crazy work ethic that's like no other, and I will work harder than anyone else to be on your team.
