My Dad always taught me that it is important to set goals for yourself. It has always been a goal of mine to play football at the college level. I have played football every year for the last nine years and it is a game I love to play. Over the years, I have improved my skills through hard work and by listening to my coaches who taught me everything I needed to know about the game. My coaches provided me with guidance and support and always encouraged me to play at a 100% every time I stepped out on the field. I know through dedication and hard work I can achieve that goal of being a great college athlete.
My parents have always placed a huge emphasis on the importance of getting a college education and so it is another goal of mine to attend college and graduate with a degree in engineering. I want to be successful not only on the field but in the classroom as well. A college education is something you have forever so this is a goal I am determined to achieve. I've learned over the years that goals are important to have in your life.
