It has always been a dream of mine to play big time college football and also at a top academic institution. First and foremost I’d like to thank my parents, family, friends, and teammates for supporting me through everything, making me who I am today. I would also like to thank all the coaches and trainers that have coached me all the way up until now. Lastly, I would like to thank all the coaches and universities that have offered me scholarships. With that being said, I am committed to: The University of Virginia #GoHoos #Wahoowa #RIPDad
