PERSONAL STATEMENT
I believe that sticking to my guns and remaining true to my beliefs, through thick and thin, brings out the best in me. I believe life is a journey. If I can observe and learn from other people's successes and failures, that will help me in my own life and my decision making. I often attempt to do unto others what I would have them do to me. I understand my actions have consequences so it is important to me to make good decisions.

PERSONAL INFORMATION
 
Describe Your Playing Style?: Run and Gun basketball is the way I love to play because it creates opportunities that a slow game cannot and usually gets the crowd involved. I also enjoy the drive and kick because it keeps everyone moving, allows for good open shots, and is simple to run.

Who's been the biggest influence on my sports career and why?:
Shaun Alexander and AC Green are men who upheld their values and continued to remain true to themselves and what they represented. They stayed humble and unchanged even when they became stars on the floor and celebrities in the world.

Jimmy Butler has also been a major influence on my sports carrier because his basketball ability was doubted by everyone but himself. He never gave up on where he thought his potential could reach and went from an unnoticed high school and college player to and NBA All Star.
About Me: I personally seek to find the best ways and techniques to successfully complete the task at hand, always believing that I can improve every day in all areas of my life, particularly in basketball.

Also I am looking forward to what I consider to be one of the most precious and valuable gifts; becoming the greatest father and husband I can be.I hope to adopt kids someday and have some of my own just like the family I am growing up in currently.
