When I started playing football I was 6 years old. I had always loved the sport. Since the second I was born, my life revolved around it.

My dad was a coach in the city for many years. Nine months of the year, every year, was spent at a workout or on a field until he retired from coaching. I fell in love with not only playing the sport but also the behind-the-scenes of it, including hours of film and preparation as well as hours in the weight room every week.

I try to continue to live in the weight room and film room now. It’s no longer a chore for me and has become more of an art. I love the process. Everything I do on the field is because of my father. He laid the foundation for me and set me up for success.

This season has been one for the memories. Nobody thought that we would be in the situation we are. That being said, the goal hasn’t changed. We want to win every game we play and perform at the highest level possible taking things week by week. That is what we will do.

The team this year is amazing. Coming in as freshman, we had an attitude and demeanor that we would buy in to what the coaches have been telling us to do and hope to see results. Every day in everything we do, we do it with intent.

The commitment to the TEAM is what makes us special. Being able to hold each other accountable while still having fun and competing at a championship level is something the 2020-2021 Bobcats do everyday.

I want to continue to play football in college. As to where I’m going is still on the table. I know God has the perfect path and plan for me. I’d love in the future be working in a NFL front office. Having a job like director of football operations is a dream of mine.

Getting a degree in sports/business management would aim me in the right direction.
