Personal Words of Wisdom: Always trust the process! My career in sports has not always been the easiest. From the times having to grow and mature physically and mentally, never lose sight of your small goals that will help you reach your larger ones! The opportunity to master your craft while grow as a human being is extremely important. It is an opportunity worth fulfilling but it comes with hard work and having a load of fun with it. If you put positive energy into it, it will find its way back! Trust the process!
