I am from San Juan Capistrano, California. My house is about 5 minutes from the beach so during the summer that is where my friends and I spend most of our time. Not only is the beach extremely close to my house, but there are numerous ski resorts a mere hour and a half away. San Juan Capistrano is located in Orange County (the county in between Los Angeles and San Diego). I love where I live and I hope to return to California and live in Orange County after I graduate from college.
One of my greatest passions is football. I've been playing football since second grade. My parents didn't want me to play tackle until I was in middle school so it was all flag until then. I started at safety for my high school's varsity team during my junior and senior season. I definitely was not the biggest or fastest guy on the field, but I was the smartest...at least I like to think I was. I miss it a whole lot and would 100% do it all again if I was to go back in time.
My favorite team in the NFL is the Pittsburgh Steelers. Everyone always asks me how and why I am a Steelers fan since I am from California. My answer to that is because I simply have been since the first grade. I chose number 43 as my high school number because Troy Polamalu (the Steelers safety) was and still is my favorite player of all time. He would do things that would make everybody who watched him drop their jaws--even fans and players on the opposing team.
