I started playing football ever since I could pretty much walk. I was named after future Hall of Fame quarterback Drew Brees. Me and my dad would go to the backyard and throw and catch the football and I haven’t stopped since.
In seventh and eighth grade, I was selected to play on the Tucson 14U All-Star team and we competed in Florida for the Nationals. That was a great experience both years.
I have played many different positions over my football playing years with me now playing defensive tackle. This year, I want to be the best player that I can be and help my team work and accomplish the ultimate goal which is to bring a second state championship to Salpointe.
After school, I want to get a college degree. I’m not sure on what the degree will be in yet. I then will work for my dad and ultimately end up taking his Dynamic Manufacturing company over and keep growing it.
I want to be successful and have the necessities and opportunities that I need in order to provide for my family and make sure that my kids can have a great life as I have.
