Being told I was not good enough to play QB at every level. My freshman year in high school I was 5’11” 130 pounds, and no one thought I would even become the our high schools starting QB.

Just like to say a quick prayer before every game.

Sophomore year hail mary versus LIU Post to win the game with no time left.
