Football has been my passion since I started playing in Kindergarten. During my high school career, I have played a variety of positions including quarterback, tight end, long snapper and defensive line - I play wherever my team needs me. I earned a varsity football letter at North Gwinnett High School each of the past 3 years. I have been the varsity starting long snapper, defensive end, and/or nose guard the past 2 years. My high school plays in the very competitive GHSA 7A Area 6 division and I have been very fortunate to have experienced playing in the Corky Kell Classic at the Georgia Dome all 3 years. I am thankful to be a part of a team with the rigor and training that I have received at NGHS. In addition to football, I participated in basketball my freshman year. I lettered in varsity wrestling my sophomore and junior years. I consistently maintain an academic B+ average while taking honors and AP courses. I am a member of Young Life, Key Club and I volunteer regularly with Happy Feat, an adult special needs group in my community. Happy Feat partners with the the Tim Tebow foundation to put on the "Night to Shine" Prom where I have been a volunteer buddy the past two years. I am very interested in continuing my football career on the collegiate level.
