Quarterbacks get the most attention…the running backs get to carry the load…wide receivers get the flash of attention…and the kicker gets the grief.

He is a large man with a history of performing well. He was a high school and college top star. However, he attended a small college and faced lesser talent.

Write your about his life in and out of football. Write about how he handles practices and being part of the scout defense. Write about how he made the team. Perhaps, put him in a dire game situation and decide if he succeeds or fails. Decide on the story, and write. Post it here, or share elsewhere, but write and enjoy…
