The most dear thing to me through my Breck athletics journey was the investment and belief by the staff. Through my four years of playing football at Breck, I was constantly surrounded by staff within the school walls and coaches out on the field that believed in me and put time into my individual growth as a player and as a young man. It began with Coach B. believing in me as a freshman, to be able to start on varsity. This was followed up by Coach Martin who continuously challenged me to work harder and become a better leader. Throughout the entire process, Coach Harris taught me what it meant and how to be a dominant, elusive and productive wide receiver. There were endless people in my corner always. If I needed something football related or off the field related the athletic support staff was ready to ensure my betterment and well being.The wins and losses helped me grow during the season, but the coaches and support enabled me to become a better young man. The positions I was placed in challenged me to succeed. The adversity faced, helped me rise and it wouldn’t have been possible without Breck athletics and my family in my corner every step of the way.
