Since the first time I put on a football helmet it's been a lifelong dream of mine to play football at the college level and beyond that. I believe with hard work and determination anything can be accomplished. I have passion and love for the game of football and I play the game with desire and intensity. I strive to lead by example on and off the field and I'll never stop pushing myself to be a better person and a better athlete.
