What Would You Want College Football Fans To Know About You:  I’m a very hard worker. I pride myself on perfecting my craft and being better every day.  I would die for this game, I love it sooo much. Back in 2013, I reported to camp in August I was perfectly fine.  Made it all the way through camp and played in the first three games. I felt really sick one day in class, I almost passed out. The ambulance came and got me. I had a massive blood clot in my lung. I played through the chest pain and the shortness of breath, all of that for the love of the game. Now I’m back 100% and I have a lot of eyes to open so it’s time to work!!
