Donovan's Story

My passion is football. I've been playing football since I was 6, and fell in love with it right from the start. Football is capable of taking my troubles away in life, because whenever I play, I forget about all my problems. My dad played football in high school, and has always encouraged and motivated me to play. I really want to live up to his expectations, as well as pursue a sport I love.

US Sports Contact Football Camp will help me get better and get me closer to my goal of getting a college scholarship. This is a really rare opportunity for me to get coached on a more personal level. I would receive better training because I'll get more one on one coaching. I really want to be given the chance to pursue my passion for football and reach my goals.

A Note from Ms. Stagis, Donovan's Teacher

Donovan is easily one of the most likable students I've ever met. He is friendly to everyone, funny, and outgoing. His coaches adore him-- describing him as extremely coachable and a valuable member of the locker room. I've never heard a student or adult utter a critical word about him. All of these qualities combine to make him an ideal candidate for the US Sports Contact Football Camp. I have the utmost confidence that he will be a favorite among the staff and players, work hard every single day, and return a changed player and leader. He is already a very talented football player, starting varsity at the end of this season, when our team reached the playoffs. I would love to see him develop on the field, and I'm already looking forward to watching him next season.
