growing in... Why Football: I get less crap about my grades from my dad. No but really I love football. There is nothing like smashing helmets with dudes as big or bigger than you. Proudest Moment: I guess I would say my performance on defense this season. I am a brick wall. No one is getting through. What do I hear... number 52 from Mt. Healthy asking to go out because he can’t handle The Rock. Overcoming Challenges: Well I have never been good at listening. Sometimes coach would have to repeat the play to me. That never went over well. But I started to really pay attention to what he was saying. It helped me focus and helped me learn the plays better. Overall it helped the entire team that I started listening. Coach’s Impact: Coach always has smart things to say, at least when I am paying attention to hear them. Nah I always listen to coach, he is very smart. He once told us that we had the makings of greatness in us. That really stuck with me. Coach believes in us and that means something.

Cooperation

Value Confirmation: It was my birthday on the day of one of our games and the team had surprised me with a cake afterwards! Coach let me pie him in the face. Kyle snapped a pic and it blew up all over the internet. My “Do Over”: I would have listened to coach more at the beginning of the season. He was right about a lot of things that I could have learned earlier had I listened. At least in the end he got to me. Coach B always gets through. Teammate impact: After a tough game we all talked in the locker room about what to do better next game. Coach made us go around the room and say one thing each player did well that game and one thing they could improve upon. I was awkward but it helped us work harder towards an eventual win and bring us closer together.
