When it comes to the great sport of football and my character I take it seriously. I don't take it lightly because I don't play football just for me I play football the other 10 guys on the field, the ones on the sideline, and their families. This game is bigger than both of me and you this game is a built on camaraderie "If I got your back, you should have my back." So on Friday Night I don't playplay for Ly'rikal Lockett. I play for my coach, I play for my quarterbacks, my running backs, my wide receivers, and the other four guys on that battle in the trenches with me. Hopefully I will get to play on Saturdays when get to the next level and play for the same reasons but with different people because I know this game is bigger than me. I know I have chance to do so only if you see that I fit the mold through both my academics and athletics which I have no doubt that you will.
I know you won't have any problems with me because I push my self on the field and off the field in the classroom striving to better than I was the day before. My pastor always says when were at church "Don't leave the same way you came," so I put my all into my education by taking vigorous courses such as A.P. Bio in order to further develop my education. Because what doesn't kill you makes you stronger and that go for both on the field and in the class room. Just likel a sore can't heal or get any better if you don't treat it with rubbing alcohol first which is what I do. In order to want better for my teammates and for myself.
Because the game is bigger than me and you because it is a game of camaraderie.
