When I graduated from high school I earned a football scholarship to SFASU. After a year there I was injured and taken of scholarship, which had to be the hardest thing to take in. Following those events I ended up transferring to community college basically transitioning into the normal everyday American life. I went through countless hours of rehabilitation, worked a wide variety of jobs that never seemed to work out or satisfy my hunger for a challenge or fulfill my passion even have gone through family issues, witnessed domestic violence with my mother and had to move out with my two sisters and brother where it took two months to find somewhere else to live. I’ve loved the game of football from the first day I was introduced to it when I was 9 years old. My plan to transfer and have the opportunity to walk on to a university team would change the world for young boys and young men who hear my story and think that their circumstances are bigger than their dreams; that settling is the answer. This time next year I will be playing football for the school I plan to attend, because I have faith that God has that in his plans for me. Whether its playing professionally, coaching, or becoming a recruiting agent I would use that as a way to help others.
