I believe anything can happen if you set your mind to it. I have always wanted to play football on Friday nights under the lights, in front of hundreds of people. Ever since I was a little kid, I have been playing sports, but my favorite sport to play football. I do not know why but for some reason I like the feeling of getting tackled. It gets me all fired up. In elementary school, we would always play tackle football. Once I got to 7th grade, I was a little small.

In junior high, there were heavyweights and lightweights, I was a lightweight. For some odd reason, the coach put me on the offensive line as a guard in 7th grade, I did not like that.
