He was always a team player and motivating his teammates for greatness.

He had the biggest love for family and friends. He was always there for his friends if it meant bringing them to his Grandma Shirley house to eat or spending the night. He always helped his friends and put them before himself. He really was a good to friend to have because he considered you his brother.

His life was short but it was filled with love, loyalty and laughter.
