I didn’t know back then I would come the tremendously frightening and honoring understanding of how much I could influence a young person’s life. In our town there is a youth football program we have come to know as “Cadiz Biddy Football.” They start in August and play four teams two times each, then go into playoffs to see who gets to compete in the “Superbowl”. Along with the football program is a cheerleading program.

I am currently a graduate student working toward my master’s degree in Sports Business at NYU. I have worked multiple internships over the last three years focusing on a variety aspects related to the sports industry. However, it was not until I worked for the SMU football team that I realized I wanted to be apart of the football side of the industry in the NFL. While working for the SMU team I was able to travel to all away games and got a chance to see and understand what it takes to run a Division I program. I parlayed my time with SMU into a training camp internship with the New York Jets working in their Football Operations department.
Fast forward to the Fall of 2014, and I am in my 3rd yr in football, and I was killing it. 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.
Sports, the events that unite most people in the world. Whether you are rooting for the home team of new York or the home team of Philadelphia. Many teams are new while others are old, and what captivates me about football is its never ending cycle that keeps moving players from team to team. This is why football is my favorite. Every year, newer players enter the league through the Draft and many of the rookies that are drafted don 't make the roster.

My life three years ago was pretty average. I had two parents and two siblings. I went to Notre Dame High School where I was interested in playing football as an offensive guard and working out. I even had a part time job on the weekends helping my dad renovate rental homes. Then one day at football practice my heart began to race during a simple blocking exercise.

When boys are running full speed into one another a severe head injury is just waiting to happen. A broken bone is just another likely injury to happen on the field during a highschool event. Although,
When football season finally arrived, I found myself on the varsity team. I thought it was going to be a repeat of my past two seasons of me just being another benched player. But I actually started for more than half the season as defensive linemen. Even on games where I didn’t start, I was getting a lot of playing time. That really pushed me to be even better for my senior season.
Although I have had many injuries growing up, there is one that particularly changed my life for the better. The injury occurred when I was playing eighth grade football. It was August and we were scrimmaging Westfield; a very good team that had a lot of big players. The coach called me onto the field to play fullback, which means that I was probably going to carry the football. As I was running onto the field my heart started to beat a little faster.
