When it comes to my education, my parents are my biggest motivators. I work as hard as I can to make them proud and to learn as much as possible each and every day. From an athletic perspective, my motivation comes from within and that motivation is fueled by those who doubt my resolve. I have been told that I can’t play Division I football due to my height. When I hear that I just tell people to wait and see. Each and every game I give 110% effort and I show them exactly what I am capable of. Those that have seen me play know full well that my height is a non-factor. I am easily able to dominate Division I prospects that have a ‘height advantage’ over me. My other athletic motivations are my friends and my personal goals. I have always wanted to play Division I football and I am lucky enough to have a great group of brothers that have always had the same dream. We work harder than everyone else because we believe in ourselves and we believe in each other.
