Playing football has taught me life lessons. Throughout my three years on the varsity team, we have had two different coaches, endured hours in the weight room, and built friendships. The two head coaches presented different coaching styles; one cared only about football and the next expects perfection in everything we do. This has inspired my dedication in school, philanthropy, and family. Because of football, I’m a more patient, understanding, and hardworking athlete, student, and man.
