Tell me something about your school and why it is so special to you?
* UConn was special to me because it was my home state school. I wanted to go there and become that hometown hero and show the youth from my community that anything is possible with dedication and persistence.

The leadership skills these two individuals possessed is a inspiration to me as a black man. Lastly, it would have to be my Grandmother who passed away when I first started playing football. I just want to hug her and tell her how much harder life has been without her while sharing all I have accomplished thus far.
