6th grade was my first year of football. I had joined a Pop Warner league team named the Charlottesville Broncos, which went 9-1 that season. It was the best feeling ever to have a winning season for my first year. The next year, I played for my school team and had a losing season, as well as the next few years after that. This made a change in me, I began to realize that football isn't a single man sport, it's a team sport. It taught me to realize that you experience the best and the worst, the wins and the losses with your teammates beside you.
I became interested in football while on the Broncos. On the team, they played me on both sides of the ball, and it was then that I knew that I loved offense. I loved that I could block for my quarterback and I, along with the other lineman, were a big reason why we had such successful plays. That also taught me to become a team player and sacrifice yourself for every yard and every play with the players beside me.
