He played football from ages 7-18, and has always been taught that knowledge in football is half the game.Standing at only 5 foot 9 (5 foot 10 if he’s lucky), he needed to know the game in order to be successful. through COACHING, hep gained ability to understand the game and think on hisfeet. Senior year his team transitioned to a pistol offense, to be able to pass much more, and that is where I felt the most comfortable. He threw for just under 2,000 yards, and rush for just under 1,000 yards, and finished the year with 29 total touchdowns. Hr was chosen as his league’s offensive most valuable player and was a divisional and league all star. having a father who has coached for 30 years, along with a very supportive family, and many other talented coaches who put him in the positions to succeed.
