My name is Austin Tarantino and I love life and the game of football. Football is not just a part of my life, it is my life. I love waking up every morning knowing that I am going to get better today. Every day is an opportunity for me to get smarter & stronger, that's why i love football. My favorite part of football is the preperation and the antisipation you feel during the week leading up to the gameday. I love waking up at 5:30 to go lift weights because i know that I'm getting stronger physically and mentally.I think it is fun, and I love to do it. I am the type of person that if i have a job to do, i will not stop until it is done 100%.I have been blessed with alot of things in my life and being able to play football is one of them. What is important is that I take the things that god has given me with and take advantage of the opportunities and better myself so that i can be the best player & teamate i can posibly be. All of my life my parents have taught me that nothing was going to be given to me and;that I had to work for everything that i wanted and to never give up on my dreams. My dream is to play football and that is why i wake up every morning with the mindset of "I am going to do everything in my power to get one step closer to my dream today" I am a Scholar Athlete & am chosen as Captain to lead our team in 2013/2014. I am Ready to Rock.
