The New Beginning

So its over, my college career as a football player for the Louisiana State Fighting Tigers is over...and its hard to put into words how I feel right now. I mean, it seems like just yesterday I was in highschool planning on going to LSU and proving everyone wrong, because there were so many people that said that I would never play here. And I've done just that because I've been starting here for 3years. I would be lying if I told you that im not gonna miss it. From hanging with my frat brothers, to almost being late to class, to listening to kid cudi with the rest of the o line, to just hangin out with my friends in my spare gonna miss it all. As this chapter of my life ends I can honestly say that id do it all again because all of the people I've met and the places I've been are what made me the man that i so proudly am. One of my close friends told me that im gonna miss it, and he is right because it just ended yesterday and im already feeling nestalgic. I still remember the tears in my mother's eyes when I told her that I decided to come to LSU. I remember being a scared little kid that graduated early to get a head start on my college career. I remember the dissapointment of having to start all over as a freshman again when I got to college and fighting my way into the 2 deep. I remember the challenge of switching from deffensive tackle to offensive tackle. I remember the challange of switching from right tackle to left tackle. I remember switching from the quiet guy to the vocal team captian. I guess you could say I've gone through my fare share of change...but it has all been leading up to this...

Im currently at the airport waiting to board the plane that's gonna open the next chapter that starts today, and that next chapter is my professional career. Im on my way to a training facility to begin training for the East vs. West shrine game and then the combine, and then my pro day. So im gonna be pretty busy for a while lol but it'll all be worth it to hear my name called on draft day...but that's a long way away from today and im gonna do all that I can to get better as I wait for those days to come...
