National High School Team
I was born on January 11, 2002 raised by my Mother (Vanessa) with the help of my father (Clarence). At a young my parents realized I was given the gift of athleticism when I was running up and down the streets playing football, basketball, baseball, and even kickball with lifetime friends and family. I didn't start playing organized sports until I was 6 and my first sport was flag football. I was really good and it was only my first year playing a organized sport. A couple months past and a coach wanted me to play tackle football. I was scared but at the same time I was more ready then ever. I did well on that field and fell in love with football. After a few years of playing football an AAU coach wanted me to play basketball for his team. The coach spoke with my mom and unfortunately she couldn't afford it. So i played for the local YMCA team and we ended up playing the same AAU coach’s team and I played amazing. After that game, the coach offered to pay for everything because he felt as if he needed me on his team. That is the moment when I knew I can make my Mom and my family proud. I fell in love with basketball and was excited of the thought on where it can take me.
