Ever since being peer-pressured into doing the sport of football by my friends, I have fallen in love with it. My life is centered around bettering myself for football whether that be having good nutrition, or being in the weight room as often and as consistent as I can. I first became interested in playing football by watching NFL games, and was intrigued by the way they played. Through my 9 years of playing football, I have seen myself transform into a leader to the younger kids on the team and to my peers as well. I have also learned that being coachable can improve your game a lot.
I have goals for myself academically and want to maintain my good GPA. Being noticed isn't just about the way you play; academics plays a large role in it, too. One obstacle I have had was being too small physically, and not having knowledge of what to do to be able to start varsity. To overcome this, I had to be coachable. For example, freshmen year I was benching 115 pounds as a defensive lineman, and after a year of hard work and dedication, I was repping 225 and made varsity as a Sophomore. A few unique skills I possess are: being able to be coachable without frowning on it, I can get low, I can be dependable, I will not miss a workout, and I can and will be the leader that you need me to be.
