This year the Super Bowl is happening in my backyard and I couldn’t be more excited.
I felt like I was making big sacrifices for a sport that I couldn’t see myself playing beyond high school. What’s all of this time and energy for?
They had us constantly working: testing us on the playbook, running hour long agility drills and even quintupling our protein powder intake.
My dad was a wide receiver in high school. My older brother was MVP. And when I joined the team my freshman year, my teammates and coaches had high expectations. But my play was not MVP material.
I have about four to five hours of homework a day, which generally leaves me five to six hours of sleep a night. It is nowhere close to enough.
