My goal after my junior year was to play better during my senior year with the hope of receiving a few offers to play football at the next level (college). This year, I definitely improved as a wide receiver. My junior year was an OK season and despite an injury, I played the entire season.
After recovering from my injury and participating in an off-season workout, I was ready to display my talent to everyone who watched me play football as a youth with The Villages Football Association. And that’s exactly what I did. I helped my high school football team (Nease) win two playoff games and came up a little short in the regional playoffs finals. However, I finished the year with 81 receptions, 1,590 yards, and 15 touchdowns, making me the No. 1 wide receiver in the state of Florida in receiving yards. This has helped me earn several awards such as Team MVP, Volusia-Flager-St. Johns County Offensive Player of the Year, First Team All-State, and runner-up for Florida Player of the Year.
Also, I earned a few Division 1 offers from Brigham Young University (BYU), Army West Point, and Airforce Academy. But my biggest accomplishment was making my parents and sister proud of me because of their unwavering support throughout the years. So, after the football season, I committed and signed with Brigham Young University because of their explosive offense and down-to-earth coaching staff. I will be enrolling this summer and working to get some playing time this fall.
