We’ve got to start with my man J.R. from Jupiter, Florida.
First of all, I thank FroHawk27 for standing up for me. Appreciate it.
But anyway, something I expect in my position is to have to deal with things like this and respond to it and it’s not something I shy away from. Something my dad taught me about being a man is to take responsibility when you don’t do so well and be proud when you do do well. So I’ve always been willing to take responsibility and I can think of a plethora of plays in games throughout my life from the time I was playing in Pop Warner to now where I wish I had done things differently and I wish I had played better.
The one that comes to mind first is actually my sophomore year in high school. The last play of the game, we were playing against the best running back in the state. He was a really good running back and also a really good linebacker. I was a sophomore, he was a senior. We were really close to beating them. There was no time left, we were on like the 3-yard line.
I was our running back so they handed me the ball and it was just me and him in the hole to win the game. He probably weighed about 210-220 and I was about 135. My ego got the best of me and I decided to try and run him over and score the touchdown.
