Give me an example of when you failed at something. How did you react and how did you overcome failure?
I have always started in football on every level I been at, but my first time not starting was last year my junior year it hit my hard not to be out there with my teammates trying to help us win. At the end of the season I wanted to transfer but I prayed about it and God told me if I was to run from this challenge that would be the biggest mistake I make in my life, so I worked hard everyday and was focus on the goal and that was winning the starting cornerback spot my senior year. When the season first started this year I wasn’t starting for the first four games and I talked to my head coach and I said” coach just give me a opportunity I know I can help this team win and if I mess up one time you don’t have to play me no more” coach jones gave me a opportunity and I balled out and was 4-2 as a starter this year. Moral of the story is I trusted God and never look back
