A football player is running with the number 9 2.

From a young age, it has been instilled in me by family, friends, coaches, and teachers that enough is never enough. Football has always been a large part of my life, as both my dad and brother were obsessed with the game long before I came along. I began my playing career in the second grade, and since the start have been following the path that I created when I was seven years old. High school continued me on that path as I achieved things. I had always dreamed about growing up. I am blessed to know that this game allowed me to continue my education and play a career at the University of Los Angeles. Still following the path that I drew out at a young age.

My family did a great job of teaching me the importance of spreading knowledge and helping others in need through my family, as well as the trials and tribulations of life. I learned that it is impossible to get to the places you want to go without the help of others. This is why the phrase: everybody eats: is so important to me. It is clear in this world that you have to focus on yourself to find peace, but focusing too much on yourself can lead you astray. Elevating those around you will only increase your standard of excellence. The constant pursuit of excellence, not only for myself but for those around me. This has led me to create this platform - For Athletes | By Athletes. I hope to provide a diverse marketplace for all athletics giving everyone the opportunity to build their own brand of success and achieve their biggest dream.
