Personal Statement

I wasn't interested in playing Contact Football, I was interested in being an artist/musician. I always liked Football, just played flag football for my school. My sophmore year I got interested in the sport but couldn't find a team with my age group. The Brooklyn Skyhawks not enough boys to play, so that year came and went.. The summer of Junior yr we find the Queens Falcons. I joined the team with plans to be a WR or TE. We start training for the season my coaches saw me more of a defensive player. So they tried me as DT and my secondary position was a DE and 3rd Offensive line. First season, first game playing contact football I was starting as DT. That season wasn't the best, my team didn't make it to the playoffs which was disappointing. But I knew, personally I had a lot more work to do. I needed to build up my skills and speed and strength. But for my first taste of the sport, it was fun and the love was there. 

My second yr with the Falcons was the best season. I really liked football, I saw myself furthering my skills in the sport. The 3rd game of the season I knew this was what I wanted to do, get a degree and play professional Football. We were undefeated with 1 tie taking us to our playoff game against LBX. We won the final score 8-0 taking us to the Championship. This was the greatest achievement of my football career. As the championship grew closer I couldn't wait to be a part of this great accomplishments. It's finally here.  During the championship game our defense kept them on 0, but the game ultimately led to OT. My team came out as the victors of the championship game and we celebrated. But after all the celebrating, knowing that this was my last season playing for the Queens Falcons I felt like I was losing a piece of me. I thought of never putting on football pads again. Playing football gives me peace, happiness and keeps me focused. The family, the unity, and the brotherhood that grew with my teammates we were brothers. But before that feeling gets to me I have one more game to play and that is the All Stars game which I will be taking part of. My coach before the Championship game said something. He said "When you play this sport its like holding on to a rope. If you or your teammate is on a mountain holding that rope no matter how painful it is you know that everyone on this team will hold this rope you and won't let you fall, no matter if they or you bleed, your skin comes off, or if they have nothing but bone left you know they won't let go because we're family."
