Roberto's Story

The spark that started my passion for football was back in 3rd grade. I was part of the Meriden Mighty Mites football team, playing my last game in Hartford. We had been undefeated the whole season with a 8-0 record. I came ready to play with the determination to beat the other team. My family was on the side with their cameras recording and taking pictures. Once I put my helmet on to start the game, nothing else mattered. It was just me and my job, which was tackling anyone that crossed the line of scrimmage. As hard as I was fighting, 4 quarters went by and we were down 0-7 the whole game. Kids were crying and very sad that we did not complete that 9-0 record. I was upset but on the inside I was feeling something else. I thought that I have to get faster, stronger, and better.

The US Sports Contact Football Camps will provide an opportunity to not only mentally prepare for future seasons on the field but will also help me get better as a player. Football has always been a sport I put my heart, sweat, and tears in. This opportunity is what will help me reach what I desire most for my future. Every day I think what could make me better as a football player and this is the perfect answer. I feel this program will bring me farther than I never knew in life.

A Note from Mr. Laskowski, Roberto's Coach

Roberto is a fantastic candidate for the US Contact Football Camps because he is a student and player that will glean every ounce of potential from himself. He is very disciplined and possess a great work ethic. He is self motivated and very coachable. He asks questions that are appropriate to the subject and receives feedback in a positive way with a solid growth mindset.
