Being dyslexic lets me see things others do not. Being FAST lets me take advantage of it. Being both keeps me grounded and humble in all I do.
My high school team is really fun to play on- mostly. I have known these guys since second grade and we have won and lost a lot of games together. My team has a big spread in talent, interest and commitment. I know there is a lot more I can learn and improve in my game when I am playing with a team full of committed, talented players.
Academics are hard for me. In March 2020, I changed schools to one that is better for dyslexic students. It is not the content. It is understanding the question I am being asked and the way I am expected to answer it. I have figured out two things about my academics: I have to work hard every single day and I have to accept all support available to me to manage what needs to get done. If I did not get help it would be like taking the field with only me; I need my team to help me.
I am a man and player of contrasts. I have high highs and hard challenges. I am very hard working and academically challenged. I am an AIDS orphan with a loving adopted family. I am a West Coast player trying to break into an East Coast game. I love the competition.
