A Machine For Character Development

My final college season came to an end a month ago. It didn't end the way my team and I would've liked. And unfortunately, I broke my collarbone in the 2nd quarter, falling 35 yards short of a 1000-yard season and setting me back a few weeks in training for the NFL.

I had a conversation with my head coach a few hours after the game. He said to me, "If this is one of the harder things you have to go through, then you've had a pretty good life." This may sound odd but this is one of the reasons why I've grown to love football. I've learned that this sport is a machine for character development. The time commitment, emotional and physical demand, and the discipline it takes to excel have provided me with some incredible life lessons. This setback is just another opportunity to grow.

At the beginning of this year, I signed with Reign Sports Management and have moved to Seattle to start training for the NFL Draft. I'm excited for this next chapter in my life. All this wouldn't have been possible without the help and support I've received in my 23 years of life. I owe many thanks.

I wish everyone the best in 2019.
