My final pitch to any pro teams is turn on the tape. I’ve started 3 different positions in 5 years and I get progressively better every year and that doesn’t stop now. My drive to improve and work ethic to get better is what will keep me in the league long term, whatever team is willing to give me a chance will not regret it at all.
