Hi. Since the days of being little and playing back yard football with my big brother, I've had the goal to play at the next level and willing to do anything to get there. Playing tackle football when I was younger in the yard with my brother taught me to take on the person who is way bigger then I am and showed me that I can do what I put my mind to. My high school career started my freshman year. About half way through the season I was able to start varsity football on the defensive side. In that game I dislocated my elbow going for a tackle and then had to ride two hours in a car with it out to get to the emergency room. Along with dislocating my elbow I broke a chunk of bone off and had to have a screw put in it. That hasn't changed my game play one bit if anything it made me stronger. Through that I learned how to push throw pain and keep moving. As soon as I was cleared to start lifting I would get up in the morning before school. Along with that I had basketball practice after school. The next year I came back stronger then I ever been. I tied records for the most touchdowns scored in one game. That totaled out to be eight with 342 yards. Also in the same year I broke the solo tackle record in our school, which was 55. Even though I love running the ball I am willing change my position and work my hardest. During my Sophomore year at the beginning of the year I was the starting center then after a while I was changed to the end. The only reason I started running the ball was because the starting running back hurt his knee That year we went clear to the state semi final, but ended up losing to the soon to be state champions The next year we went clear to the state championship, which we won being undefeated for the year. During my academic career I've had to work super hard to get where I' m. I study almost every night even right after a test. My parents have taught me that I need to work hard. I have learned that hard work pays off and that if you put your mind to it then you can achieve greatness.
