So in October I turn 26 and although its relatively young in comparison to an average person's lifespan, I feel like I've had more experiences than the average person that's 25 going on 26. I've lived in 7 states and had the chance to visit over 15 different countries and I think that's been HUGE in my development and maturation as a person.
Everyday is an opportunity to learn about yourself and others around you. If you disagree, then I strongly consider you give yourself a long look in the mirror. Now, playing football has enabled me the chance to be a part of many teams. Every group that I have been apart of has been unique with ranging personalities and skills of managers and players. I cherish the memories that I've been able to make and look forward to making more. Every single one my former teammates who have decided to move on from playing all say that nothing in the real world compares to camaraderie and bond that is created in a locker room.
Football like life isn't always sweet and "picture perfect". There's lots of peaks and valleys that need to be overcome to reach one's goals. As I've grown older, my personal goals have slightly changed, but I like to think that I have already reached my biggest goal- playing football professionally. There's always room for improvement and settling for "good enough" is simply just not good enough. Anyways, stay tuned for more!
P.S. Check out my gallery. Boris and Anna came to visit me a little over a week ago so there's some pictures of us!
