My love for the game of football started when I was about 8 years old. I watched a game on TV, and found out that I got to run around and let everything loose for 2 hours, hit people as hard as I can, and go crazy without getting in trouble. I was instantly hooked. I was blessed with a great athletic ability and so as a child, I always stood out. But nothing was ever given to me. I was never the most popular so I had to work for every position I got. My struggles wont stop until I am the greatest. I am still told to this day, "you will never make it. You are too skinny. Your school is too small. You aren't fast enough." And no matter how many obstacles I overcome, people always find something else to try and bring me down. Little do they know, that is what drives me. The people that support me make me strong, but the people that doubt me make me unstoppable. I have learned many things over my 10 years of football, but the things that always stand out and stand true are committment, leadership, and discipline. And I guarantee that no one exhibits those traits like I do.
