Thank you for posting my submission on SpartanThunder.com.
I am extremely excited to be a part of the Spartan family!
Here's a little bit about myself.
As of right now, I am 6,1" 225 and have maintained a 4.58 40 yard time. I have not stopped training since our seasoned ended. Football is my life and something that I have a unconditional amount of passion for.
My training regiment consists of lifting six days out of the week and on Tuesdays, Thursdays, as well as Saturdays I work on speed and core strength.
I love to compete and one of my goals is to see the field as a true freshmen. As far as my high school career went, I am a 4 year letter winner which means I have been playing on the varsity team since my freshman year.
As a freshman, I was named the MVP of the team.
My sophomore year, I was named as one of the team's captains. I was also moved to the offensive side of the ball to played running back. That year I scored 12 touchdowns and was named to the all Sierra League team.
My junior year, I was back where I belonged -on defense- playing middle linebacker where again I was named to the all Sierra League team.
That year I broke the schools record for the most tackles in a game with 20 against Norco. My senior season, I was moved to outside linebacker because my coach said they needed my speed on the outside.
Again I was named to the all Sierra League team. I was also named to the all Inland Valley team and was named Defensive player of the year! The recruiting process was fun but I am glad it is over and that I have found a home at San Jose State.
I was being recruited by Oregon, Oregon State, USC , Arizona State, UCLA, Washington, Washington State, Boise state, Fresno state, Hawaii, Colorado, UTEP, BYU, and some other schools but these were the ones that I was considering.
I visited all of those schools unofficially. My last visit was to San Jose in October. Before I got on the plane to go back home, I knew that I wanted to play for Coach Tomey and the rest of his staff. I have so much respect for them. They were very honest and straight forward.
It also helps that I have a very close family friend in defensive end Justin Cole that already plays there. It was nice to hear about the program from a player. People often ask way I chose to play in the WAC over the PAC-10 or BIG-12?
The conference does not matter to me. I just want to play football and be some where that I will be comfortable and have fun doing it.
Plus, I Know San Jose can play with any team in the country!!
I cannot express my love for this game. If you have any questions please feel free to ask.
