Navy Football: More Than Midshipmen (Military Appreciation Month)


I decided to go to the Naval Academy because of my family. I saw the opportunity, obviously, as great of a school it is, I also saw the opportunity to help my parents out financially. And then the opportunity after football, I really couldn’t turn it down. The experiences that I’ve been through and the hardships that I’ve felt have definitely crafted me into the man I am now, and I know my parents are very proud of what I am and what I’ve become. I never stop getting amazed by them. Because I think about myself at that age and I was not that responsible and not that accountable. And I see all the things that they deal with, from school to the military to the demands that we put on them from football, And I’m just impressed with them, who they are as young men. I’m always also impressed that we recruit all 50 states and they’re all kids from all walks of life. Ethnic groups, religious backgrounds, private (or) public schools, but we recruit similar kids that are just good kids that come from good families. But I’m just impressed who they are as people. And it makes you feel good about our country, that the future of our country is in good hands because we have amazing young men.
