I started playing football when I was 7

I started playing football when I was 7 years old. It took me 15 years to get to the Pro’s. I worked every single day to have a shot at my dream, of one day becoming an NFL ballplayer. Write down your goals, keep a journal of your daily successes, and want it so bad that you can taste the sweet victory.
