“He who hesitates in lost. Swift and resolute action leads to success; self-doubt is a prelude to disaster” – Poet Joseph Addison

I started playing football in high school and always wanted to play since I was a little kid.  I couldn’t play because the games were on Sunday and Church was a priority.  I played four years at Rancho Cotate High School and went to play junior college ball at Santa Rosa.

My first year I broke my leg the very first game and that took a toll on me mentally and physically.  I didn’t know how to react to my injury and I lost the desire to play the game.  My coaches at the time kept encouraging me and telling that everything was going to be okay in the end.

It became a blessing in the skies when I was able to leave early with an offer from TCU.  I was able to get my AA for SRJC and transfer to TCU where I would play three years and graduate with a degree in sociology.
