Football has been instrumental in my development as a person. I am the middle child of a football oriented family. I was lucky to be raised in a loving household with my parents and two brothers who also played football. While we are very competitive with one another, as many siblings are, I am very close with my two brothers.
As a football player, I have always tried to get along with all of my teammates, as I realize the importance of being a “team”. I have been fortunate, as the majority of the teams I have been on have had great leadership and coaching. I would say that I am more of a quiet leader, as I try to lead by example...however I will speak up when the situation warrants it.
Regarding my education, I realize the importance of good grades and have consistently been on the “4.0 & above!”, honor roll, or merit roll from middle school throughout high school. I love history, especially American History, and like to read all I can about the subject. As for my expected major in college, I want to study business with an additional focus on finance, as I eventually plan to have a career where I am instrumental in maintaining the profitable operation of a small to medium sized business.Outside of my school work or playing football, I work as a Sales Assistant for an eBay store owned by my Uncle. This position typically requires me to photograph inventory, research and set pricing of items using a cost analysis, and provide good customer service. I also volunteer my time whenever I am able. I enjoy reading books to elementary students, participating in trash pickup events for my neighborhood, working the W.A.R.M Summer Lunch Club in my community, and helping my elderly neighbors as needed.
I am very grateful that we were able to play this year given the situation with the COVID pandemic. I am looking forward to finishing up my high school career in the spring of 2021 and beginning a new chapter in my life playing college football.
