Tyrell's Story

My passion is contact football.

Growing up as a kid, my parents moved a lot, and I met a lot of new people. One day, I saw a group of kids at the park by my house who needed an extra player, so i said yes. I played and after feeling the rush of the game and the wind in my face, I knew that this was going to be my thing. It was going to be the thing that makes me be big and from that moment I knew that I loved this sport. Football has made me to go farther than I have ever gone before and I never look back. I'm passionate about football because it has always helped me to have a positive look on everything.

Nike Football Camp will help me to explore my passion. It will make me happy and give me hope. I will be able to get through camp with the help of the country's best coaches who will help me to become better. Football is all i want to do in life because this is what I love. Through the power of certain skills, I will be able to make it to the top through the help of my family, coaches, and friends who have pushed me all this time in many different ways.

A Note from Ms. Lum, Tyrell's Teacher

I have known Tyrell as both a teacher and advisor for almost two years. Our high school does not have a football team and his opportunities to be part of a league have been challenging as a result. Tyrell talks about football often. Although he may not have been able to play as much as he would like due to lack of access, he has kept his dream alive in conversations with his family, friends and teachers.

The Nike Football Camp would be the perfect program for Tyrell. He will benefit from the teaching and eventual scrimmage that this camp will provide for him. Tyrell works incredibly hard in school, consistently completing homework where others sometimes take the easy route. The camp would allow Tyrell to have access to a different world in which football is taken as seriously as his activities at school.
