In September I will be playing Linebacker for the U of C Dinos. 
         I trained with CFA as part of their summer program.  It is a very technical academy, the focus is form and efficiency, two critical components to football.  Working on my running form every day allowed me to become a much better sprinter.  The most beneficial piece was the position specific training.  As a linebacker, the training taught me how to shed blocks effectively, read plays quickly, and play fast.  This training over the summer not only kept me in shape, but it increased my confidence on the field, and taught me how to play fast and efficiently. 

          In addition to the physical training, CFA taught me a number of life lessons as a person and a player.  The guest speaker every week always offered valuable advice and insight that can't be found anywhere else.

           I believe learning these skills and lessons has allowed me to progress as a person and a player, and is a key reason as to why I will be playing at the University level next year.
