So I watch film thoroughly one more time so I’m comfortable and can go out on the field and play fast. I also go over the game plan to know what plays will be called in between the lines. Other than that, I’m visualizing what plays I’m gonna make until it’s to go out & actually get the job done.

•My motivation comes from my family. I go home & see how some of my people are living & how I could change their lives forever. Also, the needs/wants that I would like to have for myself pushes me to the best of my abilities.
