When I was in third grade, I weighed 130lbs! I was always a massive chubby guy! I was 275lbs when I was only in seventh grade! Obviously because of my size I was made fun of a lot when I was little, so I told my mom one day, and she told me that I should never change who I am, but instead be myself and find a passion that welcomes who God made me to be. Mom was the only one that believed in me. I joined the high school football team because my friends said that it might be good for me. At first it was just a hobby, then it became a passion. I was horrible for a while and it took some getting use to. Eventually my hard work got me a starting position on the varsity team my Sophomore and Junior year. I got multiple recognitions for 1st Team All Conference, 2nd Team All City, and I recently got recognition for the All State 2015 Arizona football team that leaves to play against Australia in June. My hard work is finally starting to get me somewhere! As great as this chance is, it will cost about $6000.00 for me to just make the trip not including any money a typical teenager might need on a trip such as this! I know this is a long story for fundraising for the Australia camp, but I have to raise $7,000 to go compete and maybe a college will notice and change my life. I have done, and will continue to do everything i can to better myself, but sometimes we could all use a little help. Thank you. This is a chance in a lifetime please help me make it possible! Thank you!!!
