What do you think are the keys to success on the football field?

  • I think the keys to success on the field revolve around trusting your training and playing completely free. Also, making sure everything off the field is in place and how it should be as far as recovery, sleep, film study and work in the weight room. It’s a lot easier to perform when you know that you are taking the right steps to move forward and improve off the field.

What would a team get in a player like you?
