    Through the 10 years of me playing football I’ve had and met multiple coaches that I’ve liked of disliked, but at the end of the day you have to deal with them and play the sport you love. The first coach I ever had as soon as I started playing football was David Price and he was the best coach anyone could ask for. He was a tough coach meaning you had to work for your position but at the end of the day you could sit down and talk to him. Every year we played we had a winning season and never backed down from anyone. The practices would be awesome we would do drills to work our technique like: run drills, tackling drills, and in the end play a tackling game or play tug of war.…

    Although he was one of my favorite players I had no idea how much he actually went through to get where he is today. Cruz has missed the entire 2015 NFL season with injury but I have no doubt in my mind he will overcome his injury and come back to play like he has been throughout his career. Reading about Marsh-Williams’s shock of seeing Cruz in the preseason was definitely the highlight of this article, reading about how she dismissed Cruz and saw his hardships then to see him three years later performing on the stage he was. Pennington did a very good job of covering all of Cruz’s hardships through his life and mentioning his success he has had after overcoming his struggles. If anyone thinks of football players as someone who just won the genetic lottery and his putting his body on the line for some money should read this article.…
