Hi My name is Malik Barnes, as a kid I always dreamed about playing football before I even knew how to play. As a kid I use to watch the kids in the neighborhood play backyard football and never really had a chance to play because I was too young. While in high school due to bad decisions I was unable to got to the next level and play college football. In fact I was sent to a alternative school called Lincoln Challenge Acdamey. Shortly after I join the United States Army were I really learned the meaning of being a true team player and that everybody has obstacles in life but with discipline and dedication you can over come them all. If I had a chance to change anything in my past I wouldn't ,because going down the wrong road and seeing what can happen really changes the way I am today . It made me discipline and a determined individual that knows what it feels like to be at rock bottom.
