“When I heard the passion behind E4A I just knew I had to be a part of it. I really do think people should ask themselves why they wouldn’t make the Especially for Athletes promise. Eyes Up, to me, means recognizing without God none of this would be possible.”
“I’ve been that person in the Sportlight. People think you’re cool because you can throw a football, it’s about more than that. It’s about being a good person, and being there for other who may need some help”
“At the end of the day, the most important thing for athletes is what they learn about life. You can do more than you think you can. Don’t be afraid to be really good. Especially for Athletes really helps athletes be cognizant of what they want to get out of athletics. Players, coaches, parents, everyone can get caught up in wins and losses. But they need to get ready for life and the more they are aware, the better chance they have.”
