Bio:
Growing up, I was always a good student in the classroom. It wasn’t until my junior year in high school when I found love for the game of football. The high school that I went to had lots of negative influence surrounding the school with gangs, violence, drugs, etc. You never knew what was going to happen at any given moment.

I used football to keep myself out of trouble and also because I loved the game. The game was new to me and I picked up on the terms and things like that really fast. I was fortunate and blessed with a full ride scholarship to the University of Washington where I was able to continue to play the game of football.
