Why do you play the sport of football?
Football is the kind of sport you have to have a passion for. I love the preparation and the competition of football. My father instilled this in me and from the age of 6 and I was hooked. I enjoy learning new plays and executing them on the field. I love running the ball and making the play happen on offense. At the same time, nothing feels better than breaking up a play or catching an interception on defense.
