TARBORO — To the Editor:

“Develop an attitude of gratitude, and give thanks for everything that happens to you, knowing that every step forward is a step toward achieving something bigger and better than your current situation. “ — Brian Tracy


As I transition to the next phase of my life, I would like to take the opportunity to express gratitude towards all those who supported me on this journey and not only believed in my athleticism but in me, as a young man. I give thanks unto the Lord for blessing me with this gift, to the community, to Tarboro High School, my coaches and teammates and to everyone who has shared in this moment with me. Words can’t express the appreciation I have for my mom and brothers, for all of their love and support.

Thank you for all of the cheers, prayers, thoughts, support and words of encouragement. I will always hold dear to me memories of playing football at THS and the love shown to me by this community.
