What motivates you to work hard?

• All the people who’ve doubted me in the past saying I was undersized or too small to play receiver, I took all that fuel and used it as motivation and trusted God’s plan for me and kept outworking everyone else. Just knowing that this is something that I really want to do with my life and actually make it to the next level. So I took it very seriously and took the time to focus on the little things that can make me better. I feel like if I do something every day that’ll make me a better player then that’s one step closer into making my dream come true
