I am looking to continue my athletic career with an opportunity to receive a degree in sports management or physical education. I am looking to be the best at my position throughout my college career and will put every ounce of my being into becoming a leader, teammate, and individual that my family, friends, and community can be proud of. I have a tremendous passion and respect for the game of football and I have overcome many obstacles in my path to become the individual that I am today. I will not accept failure and the word "no" is not in my vocabulary, and I know that working endlessly to improve on a daily basis not only as an athlete but as a person as well is most important. I have set goals to be the best at my position and continue to work endlessly everyday to make sure that I can achieve what I have put upon myself and to leave no doubt with the individuals who are a part of my life that I have given them everything I have in me. I take nothing for granted and thank God each and everyday for the opportunity and blessings I have to play this game that I so dearly love, but also at the same time it is very important to me to receive an education that will lead me onto the path of a successful life after my athletic career has ended. I have the drive, the desire, and the inner fire to compete against the best, I want to always prove that I belong with the elite and will make the absolute most of any opportunity given to me. I will put my work ethic, dedication, determination and will against anyone because I do not settle for average or good only greatness, the desire to be the best and to drive those around me to give their full effort. I have lived by a saying my entire life. Respect is earned not given. No one is going to take what I have earned.
