One of the biggest influences in my life is my dad. He played college basketball and he said that is was one of the best times in his life. I have always wanted to play college football, I fell in love with the game during my first year of grid kids football. One of the biggest things that I have learned about myself through sports is that I am persistent. I want to be the best at what I do, I want to have a successful career playing college football while obtaining a great education.
The biggest obstacle that I have had to over come, was freshman year in high school I was injured in a game. I tore my meniscus, pulled my MCL and fractured my tibia, I thought I was done with football. When we spoke to the orthopedic surgeon, he informed me that he had played football for Duke, he told me that I was not done, just had a hiccup. I was determined more than ever to heal and come back better, stronger, and faster than ever. My injury taught me the value of teamwork, and sacrifice, I am confidence that I have the talent, character, and work ethic to play for a college team, and be a positive impact to the team. I am looking for a program that not only athletically but also academically is a good fit for me.
