Being someone coming from a small school the chip on my shoulder is real. One man can only be told so many times at all different levels that they aren’t good enough before it becomes an obsessive desire to become the best in the world. That is what I have developed from my time as a Pee wee football player to now as someone preparing for the 2022 NFL Draft. I want to not only prove doubters wrong but I am desperate to prove myself and anyone who has ever believed in me right.
