I first got into tackle football when I was 6 years old because my father played in high school and loved it so he always pushed me to play and be the best I could. Since that first day in first grade I've always wanted to play football at the college level. I strive to be the best I can on the field and in the classroom, currently holding a 3.85 GPA. I am a fast and elusive ball carrier that loves to compete and encourage constructive criticism from my coaches because I feel its one of the best ways you can grow as an athlete. I've worked very hard to get where I am now and I hope I get to continue my dreams. I've had to over come some adversity in regards to coaching. My football coach of 10 years was fired at the end of my sophomore year after being caught smoking weed in school. We then started with a new coach with whom we could only have zoom meetings with, due to covid, then we were finally able to meet him at our first in person practices for him to tell the whole team he quit. We were finally able to land a coach with about a month in a half before our first game. We all had to really come together as a team and with me being nominated by my piers as one of the first four team captains it was part of my job to remind everyone what we were playing for and that we had to stay together. I have grown a lot since I first started my high school career with going from a freshman who didn't play at all to a sophomore who started only defense on a team with 20 seniors to finally being a 1,000+ yard rusher my junior year. All in all, I hope to be able to go anywhere to be a good teammate, a good role model for my friends and family, and finally just help out as much as I possibly can.
