2016 MISSION LEAGUE CHAMPIONS AS A TEAM
High school Freshman football 2016
IN 2017: My sophomore year football season I played Linebacker, I believe that I am so effective because I enjoy the game. It's not just a job to me it's sort of a meet and greet,
I am starting to see a bit more media attention, and a few more colleges that are interested in me. I keep a level head and stay focused on what brought them to me in the first place. I guess that it is all part of the process.
football is a thinking mans game as is academics, and since I love both I believe that I will succeed on the highest level possible.
its all about hard work, perseverance, dedication, being coachable, and football intellect.
keep god involved in your plans and the rest will follow suit.
(A FLASH TO THE PAST) In my youth level football from 2010 to 2015 at Pops Warner and PCC level
Touchdowns per season as running back: (averaged) 14 TD's each season from 2010 to 2015
I am a true academic with the god given talent to play football. I have no doubt that I can go to college on an academic scholarship with a possible full ride, but my urge to compete stems far and beyond the realms of science laboratories, and lecture halls, I know that I am one of the most coachable athletes. Because I am embodied with sticktoitiveness and I am fused with athletic aggressiveness. I am infused with a plethora of football intellect, which makes me one of the most loyally gritty linebackers to ever play the game. That is what gets me fired up about my dream of being recruited (not only for academics but...) for sports as well. A coach can show me a brick wall, and say "son tackle it and knock it on its butt”, and I will try my best to execute, because I when I hit that field I am programmed to listen to and gain experience from the coaches’ teachings. It must be right thing to do! Why? Because the coach has done this over, and over before, and this aint his first rodeo! All in all, it will be cool to say I went to this college, or that college, but it's even cooler to say I went to war for my school! I fought for my school! I was in the trenches for my school! And even more so, it’s even cooler when you're talking to a coach, or alumni of another school and they actually remember you as a bruising linebacker that did in fact battle in the name of your school. I want to totally represent my school, not just academically but with prideful athleticism as well. I want to be a part of a team and a school that is remembered forever and ever.
I am a firm believer in the fact that we all learn from each other. So, with that said I believe that as we go through life we teach while learning at the same time as we encounter different aspects of our day-to-day journey. I try to learn every single thing that I could, so that I could be a better person tomorrow than I was yesterday. I try to learn it through research, interaction, socializing, academics, and athletics. Once I know something I try and master what I have learned. Once I have mastered what I have learned I then try to represent that knowledge to the fullest by being an example of that newfound knowledge.
My reputation, as far back as I can remember, has always been one of a positive example setter. I pride myself on being a person that people can come to for answers, or maybe even a suggestion about something or another. I have always tried to do what was rightfully needed in a positive manner
So many people today tend to do the wrong things in life because some of the wrong things in life are some of the most popular things in life. In most cases these days, these types of things tend to garner the most respect amongst your peers, but I always choose the road least traveled (no matter how different or unpopular it makes me look).
People tend to take notice of my actions as an example setter, and they in turn want to follow my lead (on and off the field). Hilariously so, its been that way for me since kindergarten. So, I take full advantage of my so-called mass appeal as I constantly manipulate the negative chaotic situations that I encounter into the positive ways that they were meant to go. For example: In class if we are told to get into groups for a group project, and several students are playing around in a study group, I will slyly take charge of the group because I know that the groups grade is ultimately going to be my grade too, and I want the best grade possible. So I take control and run the study group, then we all get A grades, I am the same way on the field. On the field I am the main cheerleader, I make sure every guy out their is vocal, and sees what's going on, and knows how to make the adjustments that are needed on the spot whenever they are needed. I am not a leader because I like bossing people around, I am a Leader because I like getting things done right. Some times a good leader is a good follower, and I follow as much as I lead, but the key to being a leader is knowing when to lead and when to empower others to lead, and when to just simple follow them (everything is for the good of the team as a whole).
I look at it this way, a person should always know when to lead, a person should always know when to follow, and a person should always most definitely know when to get out of the way and let someone else lead.
Well, the way that I pursue healthy athletic performance is by first understanding that without the basic necessities needed to assure my basic good health, I would not be able to do anything worthwhile. So first off, I make sure that the basic needs of my health are taken care of (routine check-ups, dental visits, eating the right foods... and not too much junk), then I build upon that with my pursuit of continued positive mental health (by keeping the drama out of my life, by constantly being around positive like-minded people, by sticking to a strict diet and work out routine, and mainly by sticking to a rigid academic study schedule).
Doing all of this allows me to compartmentalize things and stay in control of my life. Without control there is chaos, and I don't like chaos. So I manage my time carefully by ridding myself of all of the time-wasters within my day (and believe me there are a lot of them). Time wasters like too much time on social media, hanging out with friends just sitting around staring into each others faces, going to and from places that are meaningless to my purpose in life, staying on the phone too long, or anything else that I may be doing and not noticing how long of a period of time that I am taking doing meaningless task. Believe it or not a person could shave hours of meaningless stuff off of his, or her daily schedules just by locating the time-wasters within it.
All of this helps me focus more on my pursuit of a healthy academic, and athletic performance. It hurts to have to turn down the seemingly fun stuff most of the time, but my ability in the classroom, and also on the football, and track field is highly reflective of my time management-regiment.
First and foremost I believe that whenever we help someone out of the kindness of our hearts we too are also being helped by default. For example, as we assist someone in need we in turn also reap the benefits of our benevolent assistance. On so many occasions many people have came up to me out of the clear blue sky (at church, school, or just being out and about), and said “hey I remember you. You are the boy that helped my mother, brother, friend sister, etc. and for your efforts I would like to help you”. I don’t ask for or even seek help in return. Most of the times these people were affiliated in some way or another with something that I was trying to do or something that I was trying to accomplish, or some program that I was trying to get into or something or another. For instance, These people were connected to things like me meeting a coach, getting some work done on my bike, or learning how to do something at school. Oddly enough we are all connected in some way or another.
Basically, just being the best person that you can be at all times will allow you to affect the lives of others because they will view your examples and in turn they will simultaneously reap the unsuspected benefits of noticing the positive way that you conduct yourself. I never ask for anything in return for helping others, I do it from the bottom of my heart because that's what Jesus would do.
