This year will be my 10th year of playing football. I grew up playing with the Southwest Rams.

I was a student-coach for the 8U division last year, but sadly due to the Tucson Youth Football and Spirit Federation cancellation because of COVID-19, I’m not able to be out there this year with them.

My greatest hope for the 2020-2021 season is that we get to just play ball! I don’t care what restrictions we have, or what new rules we have to follow, if I’m playing this year, I’m thankful.

I’m most excited about this year’s team because last year we had a lot of growing up to do, and now I feel that our boys have all made the improvements that were needed to be made. I feel that we are too good of a football team to be anywhere near the same spot we were in last year.

Some future goals that I have beyond high school are to hopefully get a scholarship to a university and receive a degree. I still am undecided on what I would like to major in.
