Football, like my family and my faith, it is part of my foundation. I'm building and improving on something solid, learning and gaining everyday. This game has imparted many life lessons and taught me the importance of hard work, dedication and drive. Starting out on varsity as a freshman in high school there were certain seniors who challenged me to be my best and strongest everyday that season. Yeah, I got knocked down a time or two but each time I got up learning a valuable lesson. Without these guys, I would not be the player I am today and that makes me grateful and makes me always strive to be that same kind of leader to the guys coming up.
