Goals and about me

My Dream Goal
Since I’ve been 4, I’ve wanted to play football at ND. What’s more important than faith, family and football? Playing for a D1 college and onto playing for the NFL is what every kids dreams of. 2% of athletes go onto playing for a D1 college. I was raised to dream big, and I’ll continue to do that.
My Individual Season Goal
I had a shining season last year. I know that most of it is what you put into it. I worked hard. I’ll continue to work hard. But having coaches who believe in me, makes me want it even more. This year, I’ll continue to work on my skills, my speed and my agility. However, the most important thing this season to me, is to wear that “C” proud on my jersey again and be the best leader I can for my team.
About me
Last season was the first year I was able to carry the ball. By looking at me, you wouldn’t be able to tell seasons prior I was a striper and couldn’t carry the ball. I was a strong Lineman, but that position wasn’t my dream. Last season, I worked hard and made weight. Resulting in playing the following positions: Running Back, Defensive End, Wide Receiver, Tight End, Kicker & Punter. In 2019, in 10 games I managed 14 touchdowns, between 1500-2000 rushing/receiving yards. Not bad for a former right guard. This season, my legs need to keep up with my star QB, who happens to be one of my best buds. We are an incredible duo. But that’s just part of our team. Football has never been more fun to play.
