I am more than just an athlete!
I am happy to talk about my success in athletics but I am defined by so much more than football. I am an accomplished guitar player and lyricist, I like to snowboard, I am loyal friend, and I am working on writing my first novel. My grandpa shared a quote from Plato with me recently that is fitting to who I am and want to be...."He who is only an athlete is too crude, too vulgar, too much a savage. He who is a scholar only is too soft, to effeminate. The ideal citizen is the scholar athlete, the man of thought and the man of action."
I want to be great at whatever I do and I am willing to put in the time and effort if it is something I enjoy.
