Giving back is the main purpose of the creation of this site. As a child growing up my parents always taught me good values and that I need to learn how to give back in life. My vision is to share my football knowledge & expertise in conjunction with raising many dollars to assist many different charities over the next few years.
• Giving is the highest expression of potency. In the very act of giving, I experience my strength, my wealth, my power. This experience of heightened vitality and potency fills me with joy. I experience myself as overflowing, spending, alive, hence as joyous. Giving is more joyous than receiving, not because it is a deprivation, but because in the act of giving lies the expression of my aliveness.” ~ Erich Fromm
• “From what we get, we can make a living; what we give, however, makes a life.” ~ Arthur Ashe
