Football has been a huge part of my life for as long as I can remember. I began playing football in the second grade and have played every year. I have been blessed enough to play with many of the same teammates since that time and they have become like brothers to me. I could not imagine my life without them and the times we have had together.
While last year was rough with Covid, I believe that I improved myself in that time rather than let all I had worked for go to waste. With remote school, I disciplined myself to self-guide my way through my studies. I am proud of the fact that I maintained a very challenging course load despite the hybrid learning and that I was able to achieve a 4.0 GPA.
I apply that same discipline to making sure I am physically ready before I step on the field. I am in the gym on my own time working on a classic physique striving to look like Arnold and Chris Bumstead, 2 of my idols in the fitness industry. This, coupled with a focus on nutrition, are helping me to reach my personal goals and goals dedicated to football.
Outside of football, I enjoy fishing. Fishing is something I genuinely enjoy no matter the circumstance. Just getting out of the house and going fishing for the day with my dad and/or friends is an enjoyable experience.
I consider my family the most important people in my life. I have the support of my parents completely. As a family, we have been through a good bit these past few years as my dad battled stage 4 cancer. I am happy that he is on the other side of that journey now. That process brought our family closer together than before and really reminded us about how important faith is, especially in that kind of situation.
I believe I am a disciplined, loyal, level-headed athlete that has much to offer a football program and school, both in the classroom, on the field and in the locker room.
