HORU February 29, 2016


(1/3) "It all started when I was 4 years old. I was living right here on this lot, and I had my neighbor behind me, a friend across the street and one down the block. Two were my age and the other one was 5 years older than us. We played kill the man with the ball on the side of my house and the older kid, he used to throw us around. There were a few times when I was able to juke him out and get past him, and since I was 5 years younger, I remember getting that adrenaline rush at the age of 4 when scoring that touchdown. That was when my friend Doug's mom said she was gonna sign him up to play for the Port Reading Saints. She said I should talk to my mom about it too. And my family has that background anyways, everyone played sports. So she really wanted to get me into it, and I really wanted it too. From then on, in that September of '95, I started playing football."
