It means a lot, he said, because it was always my dream to become a professional athlete. A lot of people in my area look up to me. I feel like Im a big role model back where Im from. As long as Im doing well, everybody back home is doing well, and they have a positive mindset.
Well, all those family and friends living along the Gulf Coast of Florida are probably smiling, too.
