Goals and about me

My Dream Goal
To continue to excel and improve as a student athlete and hope to have the opportunity to play at the next level, after high school.
My Individual Season Goal
1000 total yards of offense with 15 touchdowns in my final year of youth football. Also to be Defensive MVP of our team. Ultimately win the youth Super Bowl this season.
About me
I am 12 years old this month. Have played basketball, baseball, and football since I was 5 years old. This year I will begin to focus solely on football as I prepare for jr high and beyond. I have played QB, RB, OLB, MLB, and Safety. My passion though is defense, love to hit and create havoc on that side of the ball.
