Sports have been a big influence in my life and have given me confidence, focus and dedication. My dad and older brother got me into football and basketball. They have worked with me ever since I could pick up a ball. Sports have become a part of my everyday routine. After school I either practice, train or workout to make myself the best athlete possible. Playing football, basketball and running track have motivated me in the classroom. Without the grades I cannot play. My goal is to be a student athlete in high school and keep the grades that will let me go to any college. My skills in football have helped me get picked as a running back on different All-Star and All-American teams. Working with coaches, teammates and staying focused will continue to help me reach my goal.
