I grew up in a well known football family in Louisiana. My dad played wide receiver for LSU and I have three uncles that were all stand out quarterbacks, in which two of them played in the NFL. My grandfather is a legendary high school State Championship coach and has been a pastor for over 30 years. I guess you could say I’ve been raised with faith, family and football! I’ve been taught to serve others any chance I can and it is an important part of my faith.
Not too long after signing with the University of Oklahoma, I got the opportunity to meet the leadership at the Children’s Hospital in Oklahoma City. Recently, I had the privilege to visit there and spend some time with several of the amazing boys and girls, some that are battling for their lives, but very strong spirited and full of hope! I knew then that I wanted to play a part in helping these kids. That's when I created the organization, More Than Just a Name (MTJN), and decided to make donations from my site. My parents have always told me that I represent more than just myself with my name, and I can’t think of a better way to use what God has blessed me with by linking arms with these children and their families who are going through some of the most challenging times of their lives.
Thanks for your support!
