Growing up without a dad influenced me to take charge of my own life and on the field. While I was growing up I had certain situations in my life that created stress and weight on my shoulders that molded me into the person I am today. I first became interested in football at a young age because it's physically challenging and demanding. I like to think that I am a good team leader as I do well under pressure. My goals are to go to college to become a fish and wildlife conservationist, possibly working for fish and game. I aspire to have my job and degree be involved with the outdoors.
