Why do you participate in this sport? What do you like about it?“I participate in this sport because I enjoy working with a team to accomplish a goal larger than any personal achievement. What I like about football is the rigorous curriculum that provides you with important skills for life. Football teaches players to persevere when obstacles are present.”
Name of someone you look up to and why?“I look up to my father because he is a prime example of how a man should live. He is extremely selfless and puts his family’s wants and needs before his own. My father encourages me to strive to be the best in anything I pursue in life. My father is an incredible role model, and I would not be the young man I am today without him.”
