My name is Mario Herrera. I am a 6 foot 285 lb defensive tackle/offensive lineman in Yakima, Washington. I have played football since I was 8 years old and have always loved the game. I aspire to play at the collegiate level and I am working hard to earn that opportunity.
I am currently working out twice a day to add mass, get faster, and get stronger as I prepare for my next season of football at West Valley High School.
In May 2017, I attended FBU Camp in Sammamish, WA and received an invitation to Top Gun. In June 2017, I attended a camp at Boise State University with my high school team. In July 2017, I attended Top Gun in Rock Hill, SC and was named to All FBU Top Gun Team Offensive Lineman for my class of 2021. I attended Trench Mob at Rise Football Academy in Seattle, Washington from January through March 2018 in preparation for my upcoming football season. I currently train at Ford Sports Performance in Bellevue, Washington. As a junior, I have made the Varsity team for the second year as a starter for the offensive line. As a sophomore, I was the only sophomore starter on the team.
I am a team leader and I am an extremely hard worker on and off the field. As an honor roll student, with a 3.6 GPA. I am very serious about my studies. I have volunteered at Children’s Village as a mentor to children with special needs. I am also involved with Special Olympics at my high school. Special needs children hold a special place in my heart because I have an older brother with Autism. I have also gone on church youth mission trips to serve the homeless.
It would be a dream come true to have the ability to play at the college level. I am open to all possibilities and all opportunities. I will be working hard to earn an opportunity to play for a great football program and to earn a great college education.
