In his own words..... Life is a mixture of expression, experience and opportunity. In order to excel you must be dedicated and always have a positive mind set. You must also be prepared to work hard and be able to accept constructive criticism. Of you believe in faith and continue to strive for perfection all of your dreams and goals will become true. These keys to life were the things that I live by. Everything that I am today, everything that I have today, everything that I will ever be is because of the game of football. Modeling my life through this great sport if how I feel GOD patterned my life to be, I live it, love it, and truly respect this great game of football.
