Desired Academics



I was a 2 year varsity player but was on the small side. When I was a freshman I hadn't even broken 100 pounds yet so everyone said I was too small. My sophomore year I grew a little bit, but not enough to get my name out there. My junior year, I finally got my name out there playing cornerback on the varsity team. I also played running back and slot receiver, but did not see a lot of touches. My senior year I played more corner, punt returner as well as slot receiver. I never had enough size to get any looks from college so I decided to graduate and join the marine corps.

In July of 2013 I headed off to boot camp in San Diego California and it was the most humbling experience of my life the way they break you down and bring you back up. When I graduated boot camp I headed off to ITB (infantry training battalion). While I was there when we finished our 3 weeks of basic infantry tactics I decided to go for a more challenging MOS so I took the 0331 course. Once I graduated i was given orders to Camp Lejeune, NC and joined 3rd battalion 6th marines.

While in 3/6 I was in L company wpns platoon and trained for about a year until we deployed on the 24th meu. When we got back from our deployment I was sent to advanced machine gunners course to build my skills as a leader. Once I graduated I came back and took control of the section and performed multiple ops with great success.

Throughout my time being in the marine corps I have gained 45 pounds and maintain my physical standards by always going to the gym and doing several explosive workouts with my platoon.

I decided to attend to the Athletes of Valor evaluation combine because it has always been my dream to play college football, and I thought it would be the best first step into achieving my goal. I posted these results at the combine on June 3rd, 2017:

Reach: 70"
40 Yard Dash: 4.63 seconds
Standing Vertical: 9'1" + 8"
Broad Jump: 9'35"

Bench Press: 15 reps of 225 lbs
