When people lie and are shocked by the outcome down the road.

Overcoming adversity is what defines character, what was the hardest moment in your life to overcome?

My sophomore year in high school at the end of the season we were fighting to make the playoffs and I got my spot taken and didn’t see the field for the last 4 games including playoffs. I was upset and thought maybe football just wasn’t for me. I changed my mindset and worked like crazy the entire offseason to make sure it wouldn’t happen again. I followed that year up by starting every game the next season and earned all-district and was nominated for all-area.

  3. Bruce Matthews – I would love to hear advice on technique and just talk offensive line play with one of the best offensive linemen to play in the NFL.
