I am a son of a twenty-year Marine Corps Veteran who taught me how to respect and follow directions of a coach or of a person in charge. One thing that has influenced me is my family and I moving to Georgia in the middle of high school, because of my dads new job. Him getting his new job forced me to leave my comfort zone and find out who I am. I found out many new characteristics that I never knew I had and I think that if it wasn’t for my family and I moving I don’t think I would’ve ever found out I had these characteristics in high school. When I was five years old I started playing flag football. Then at eight years old I started to play tackle football and I started to look up to Tim Tebow and I aspired to be just like him. In college I would like to maintain a 3.0 GPA or higher and attend a school where I can achieve academic success and achieve athletic success as well. In the middle of July my dad received a job that was better for our family and we moved from North Carolina to Georgia. After the move to Georgia the GHSA would not let me play the first five games because our temporary housing was out of district. Once we closed on our house I was finally able to play, but didn’t start until the last two games of the season. Football has taught me that it’s not about me. It’s about my brothers to the right and left of me. Football has taught me both mental and physical toughness. Regardless of the win and loss record I bought into the process and did my 1/11.
