Commentary:

Growing up in northeast Portland, Athletics were a way of life. I grew up in a very competitive environment. If you wanted a name for yourself you had to play against the best. It didn't matter if it was football, basketball or track, If you wanted to play you had to prove yourself. These things shaped me for the rest of my life.

I remember my Pop Warner coach Rodney use to tell me, "There are three types of people in the world, people that make it happen, people that watch it happen, and people that don't even know what's going on." He told me that my heart and will to win, for a guy my size, would get me to the top.

As I got older I couldn't believe all the things my mom sacrificed to get me to this point. She made everything look so effortless, so the only person I was trying to impress was my mom. She instilled so much discipline and confidence in me that it showed in my play. I wanted to make her proud, I wanted to accomplish all the things she set out for me to do. My mom is the reason I always played with a chip on my shoulder. I thank her for always being in my corner through the ups & downs.

I also want to thank my family, coaches, teammates and friends, with out you guys I wouldn't have made it. I love you all. Thanks!!
