I believe that I've always been a competitor growing up. Ever since i was a young child and I would race my sisters at the drill field, play all kinds of sports with my childhood friends, or even simply playing video games. I didn't, and still don't, like losing. That's why I fell in love with the game of football in middle school. I started playing just because all of my friends did, but It quickly became my passion. I always wanted to better myself and be the best football player I could be. High School football took it to another level. Our head coach for my first two years taught me a lot, not just about football, but how the game of football can prepare you for the real world. It teaches you many important qualities like how to lead, how to be accountable, how to work hard, and how to be disciplined. We won a state championship in 2016, and I believe that's what flipped my mindset completely to this day. I wanted to get that feeling back. Our new and current coach has a much more competitive mindset. We stress the weight room and try to get better as a team. Coming into my senior year, my off-season has consisted of a lot of footwork drills, weight lifting, and speed training with track. I plan to prove my worth to top college coaches. My drive to play college football continues to grow and with that comes my work ethic continuing to grow. It doesn't stop when I get an offer or when I finally sign to a college. It continues through college ball and more. I plan to go somewhere that can work up to my desired education level and work best with my desired major. I hope to have a successful senior season and hope to look back and be glad that I worked my absolute hardest to get there.
