  1. I was always a gifted athlete, but football was always an afterthought compared to baseball. It wasn’t until my sophomore year that I realized where my future truly lied. On the baseball field, I was always living in the shadow of my brother. I was never going to be more than that, more because of my own mentality than anything… Self-fulfilling prophecy is a real thing, and that’s all that I heard. After a moderately successful beginning to my HS baseball career, some friends convinced me to try out for the football team. The team needed a spark on offense – and I was a naturally-gifted athlete, albeit NOT a football player. It didn’t take long for me to find my spot as a RB and to fall in love with the game. There were no expectations… and if there were, I would have been driven to surpass them. Everything felt different on the football field. I quickly found my place among my new family in that locker room… and I quickly found my spot in the starting lineup. All of that said, at first I took for granted my ability to succeed without further understanding the game. I would stop short of calling it complacency, but I didn’t understand the importance of learning the game at first. I was the definition of a raw player. It took years to overcome the stigma I placed on myself of that… and I am still learning the intricacies of the game to this day. The details of running routes, my assignments in pass protection… My coaches did an excellent job putting players in a position to further their careers, though the team fell short all 3 years that I played. I had plenty of personal success. In a school with athletic talent focused on other activities, I became a centerpiece of the offensive attack. A true workhorse RB can be an incredible weapon in a HS offense, and my involvement was reflected statistically. All of that said… our high school squad was never good. Football was not the focus of the school, nor the community… but it became everything to me. Though I haven’t experienced the joys of winning often, personal success has propelled me along the track that discovering football has set me on. I am determined to continue along that path, and bring greater success to my team in college as well as beyond. I look forward to what the future holds, and continuing my career in this great game.
  2. Should have went WR... haha. Thanks for all the help, I’ll check in the morning and see if I have any luck.
  3. Got it - will AD messages come via the forum or EFLO?
  4. Sounds great - I will make sure to do a write up in the morning... by the way, how do I spend TPE?
  5. Thanks - I’ll go give it a shot! What is my next step after player creation?
  6. I’m thinking I’ll just start with 1 player until I get the hang of everything. Are there positions in higher demand/easier for somebody learning the ropes? Thanks!
  7. @Turner @TacticalHammer Thank you guys! Seems like a lot to process but I’m really looking forward to giving this a shot. Any guidance/advice is much appreciated!
