For as long as I can remember, I have had a driving passion to play football. In my house, Sunday was a day for three things, family, religion and football. This tradition has imbued in me principles of hard work as well as family and team bonding.
I started playing football when I was in the 5th grade. My coach placed me at running back until the QB position opened, I played there for seven years. I was always told I had the athleticism to play a different position so I switched positions in the offseason and became a wide receiver and defensive back. I dramatically changed my workout program so I could compete with varsity players at both the wide receiver and safety positions.
My parents have always told me that hard work can overcome any obstacle and help overcome and defeat a smarter or more skilled opponent. I suppose this has sunk in with me since my coaches have always told me that I was a respectful, hardworking and easy to coach player.
I learned early on that, if I place my full trust and confidence in the men who have dedicated their time to coaching, I would be successful. If selected for your program, I can assure you that there will be no harder worker and dedicated player on your field.
