My favorite part about being in middle school was being allowed to play sports for the school. Going from youth sports to school sports was an enormous change.

I have attended four different high schools in four years. I have always participated in sports throughout high school. Although after school activities have made a huge impact on my high school career, none have been more of an influence than football.
