Q: What is your final pitch or sell to NFL and other pro league scouts?

My final pitch to any pro team that takes a chance on me is that I have dreamed about playing on the pro level all of my life. Now that I may have an opportunity to make that dream come true, I am determined to put in all the work necessary to show that I belong on the next level. Also, I believe that if you take a chance on me, that you won’t regret it because I will show up to work every day and you will see that intensity and passion for the game out of me. You will never see my energy drop because all I want to do is ball out every chance I get!
