Along the journey to get where I am today, people attempted to set limits on my potential. “Football recruits don’t meet with academic department heads to decide where to go to school.” “Starting quarterbacks seldom pick difficult majors.” “People with Alopecia tend to shy away from the spotlight.”
The opportunities that laid outside those limits were some of my life’s greatest blessings. I started at Quarterback for the University of Tennessee for four years and graduated with a degree in Aerospace Engineering. I have worked with leaders in the aviation and space industries with Pratt & Whitney and NASA. I hope to inspire young student-athletes while playing in the NFL. None of these accomplishments would have happened if I had listened to the people telling me who I was supposed to be: if I had paid attention to their “limits”.
I started ASTRO to inspire people like me. People working every day towards extraordinary feats that lie beyond what others think is possible.
They are out there. Let’s go show them.
"Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go."
