My football “Career” started out in mighty might football. I honestly had no idea what was going on. I was always the kid that everyone called the “bench warmer.” I would never get any time on the field except for the last few minutes of the game. After the mighty might football years, we soon moved on to Jr high. Jr high football was a big thing for us.
All of our friends were playing football at the end of the end-zone. But Anthony and I were too busy watching the game and doing things for the team. This went on for a number of years until we were in the seventh grade. In seventh grade football really started. In Pinetop we did not have a pewee league for football.
At County High School, football was king. If you were a guy and not a member of the football team then you were already behind in the popularity polls. I was not so much interested in the popularity battle but I did love sports, especially football. Sports kept me busy throughout my high school life. I played basketball, baseball, and football every year.

The audience and fans can make or break a team in the National Football League, also known as the NFL, or in the National Collegiate Athletic Association, also known as NCAA. On average, the number of ticket sales a NFL team produces depends on how many games the team won that season. For example, in the 2012 season the Jacksonville Jaguars won two out of the sixteen regular season games, and by the middle of the season ticket prices and sales plummeted. On the other hand, collegiate football audiences do not follow this rule. The stadiums of the division one through three football teams are always filled with supportive college students, alumni, and family.
For as long as I can remember football has been a part of my life in some way, shape, or form. When I was first born my grandfather said that I was solid and built to play football. I used to throw the football with my mother when I was a toddler and she always told me that when I tried to tackle her I hit really hard. My first organized football experience was when I was five. I had just moved to Manassas, VA from Washington, D.C. in 1994.

I had heard of a local pigskin football league that allowed any teen my age to play.

The beginning of fall season, every Saturday, every fan looks forward to the biggest and widely watched sport in the United States, college football.
