I started playing tackle football in the third grade and my love of the game never stopped.

Football has been an integral part of my life and has taught me how to be a good person on and off the field. As a senior, I have developed and grown as a person and player and encourage teamwork within our team.

I hope we have a season and I am able to play my senior year to continue growing academically and enhance my skills as a player. I am looking to play at a higher level.

I admire the undying work ethic and our ability to work together. Buena’s theme this year is “Together We Can.” Every player on our team works as one. This is what Buena football is about and what we stand for.

I would love the opportunity to play at a higher level while obtaining a degree in engineering. I love the game of football and want to play as long as I can while preparing for a career.
