I told my homie Trent that a lot of people do not understand what hard work truly means. I told him to tell me what it took to get to Signing Day (February 5, 2014). I also asked him if he could tell me what he personally had to go through in order to make this day come true. Trent explains to me that..
"Prayer, faith, and hard work. I always knew that I had been blessed with talent on the field , it was just a matter of getting exposure. I was coming from a small school where there was basically no football tradition. Barely having enough people to play, little support, and losing seasons were the norm. Plus I was one of only a few who actually wanted to get better. In the weight room alone, running sprints and doing drills alone. Plus I had a dad that was a coach but our relationship was strained through out my childhood. Finally, my senior year I got to transfer to Port Arthur Memorial, a school known for producing athletes. It was hard getting adjusted to the new way of life. Everything revolved around football. Plus I had to perform extra tasks since I was a coaches son. 3 to 4 workouts a day in the summer.... It was also hard having to play a reduced role since I was always use to being the man. My faith was tested by a few tough games and relationship troubles with friends and family. But God always knew what he was doing. For me to able to overcome all those things and make it February 5, 2014 was so surreal."
