After the death of my Mother upon entering my freshman year, I decided rather than isolate or saturate myself in my grief; I chose to utilize the wisdom and inspirations that she had instilled in me. Football has always been impressive to me, credited to a long line of athletic males from my family background. I entered this sport as early as 7yrs of age and have participated seasonally till this present time. My aspiration to become a football player is a deep spiritual inclination. I literally feel this appointment from within and without doubt or reservation in anyway. Therefore, I do not to play this game under my own power or might.
I have been discouraged and doubted by a few coaches in my youth, but the spirit within me provokes me to keep trying. Much to my own aspirations I have never given up. These same coaches have recanted their concepts of my capabilities. I have learned to believe in myself. I realize that playing sports has challenged my abilities to focus, endurance, discipline, dedication and team work. I truly now believe that a person can actually achieve anything they desire to achieve.
I’ve learned the game changes in discipline, physical expectations and mental strategies and require great sacrifice, I have been able to become more aware of my areas of strength and those of which I need to improve upon.
Academically I have had some struggles but have readily sought and have been able to receive assistance that have afforded me to gain control of my studies, with guaranteed assistance until my graduation. I do desire to complete 4 years of college with a degree.
I consider my uniqueness comes from believing in a higher power to govern my life and guiding my path in football as a true calling for me, and being fearless when I’m on that football field.
I am hoping you will afford me the opportunity to display my abilities in areas that may prove valuable to my future well being.
