Sports is my life. I have been involved in sports in some sort of fashion every since I was 8 years young. I met Dr. Lashbrook when I attended the NFL combine and NBA summer league courses that SMWW has to offer, and each time I was there he asked me what I wanted to do in sports. At first I had no idea besides just being involved, but then I realized how much I loved being involved with players and personnel and scouting. I want to be the one to discover that unknown talent.  I know you have to start at the bottom and I do not mind at all because I am a hard worker.As of now, I am working for the military. Being a veteran has opened a lot of doors for me, and I am hoping that along with my veteran status and me having a Masters Degree in Sports Management will also help as well. Plus the networking I try to do every chance I get to meet someone involved in sports. I would love to be a scout, whether it is high school, collegiate or on the professional level. Also, I would not mind being an assistant coach with basketball or football as those are my two main passions. I have applied for numerous internships all over the U.S. and would not be opposed to going overseas and working as well. I just want to get my foot in the door and make my mark somewhere.
