While growing up in a little town in Mississippi I didn’t really think about sports but when I moved to Texas they were all around me. The first time I ever really played football (flag) was in the third grade. Once I got older and wanted more so I signed up for pop Warner 2 years in a row. When I finally got to play for my school I was the top defensive player on the team constantly in news papers with leading tackles and the confidence that I had lead me to be a starter my sophomore year for a few games battling with seniors. My motivation was to make sure my mom wouldn’t have to worry about me getting a higher education, to make sure she knows I’ll be something one day with academics or athletics. She is my drive and I will accomplish my goals in making sure she. Won’t have to struggle getting me to the next level education.
