This past year I have been fortunate enough to be a part of the George Fox Football Team; a community that many people want to be in but only the strong willed can make it on. I have played football my whole life and the way this team rallies and comes together is by far the best. Throughout, this year I have learned a multitude of life lessons, strengthen my ability to work in a team and to depend on my teammates while we all strive to achieve the same goal. The main uniqueness of my community, The George Fox Football Team, is the acronym that we stand for, T.A.P.E, through these four words I have learned many life lessons that has made me the man I am today. The football team lives and breathes by these four simple concepts of the acronym, without it, we would not be able to grow as a team.

2nd Grade It was Super Bowl Sunday and I invited all of my friends over for a “Super Bowl Party.” It was the first one that I had as a kid. We were all pretty wild. The kids that were there were Jacob Ennett, Travis Nelson, Evan Hassell, Luke Mattson, Mason Hemmila, Payton Marcotte, Preston Koski, and Davis Bagley. My parents had got us Little Caesar 's and pop so, after we are done eating we went outside to play football. Nine little kids fighting over a football wasn’t a pretty sight.
I was starting cornerback, andwe won a championship. And I just went to Tennessee for a football tournament with kids that were a grade above me. Everything was going so well for me, but the one thing I was missing was a touchdown.

From what I can remember, football has become a Sunday ritual in my family since I was a kid. Growing up in the Northeast, we lived a couple hours from Shea Stadium in Flushing Meadows-Corona Park, Queens, New York. Being the playing ground for the New York Jets 1964 to 1983, now the New York Jets play at MetLife Stadium, in East Rutherford, New Jersey. Living so close to the stadium and having family members like my Dad, Uncles, and Grandfather take the train or a boat over to watch Joe Namath play was an experience I wish I could have been a part of. Football has become so popular in America, that they have a day dedicated to watching your favorite team play their hardest versus one of the other thirty-one teams in the league.
