     I played on the West Brunswick High School varsity football team for two seasons.

    I was listed on the roster of the West Brunswick High School varsity football team for two seasons.

    I played soccer growing up, so I continued to play soccer into high school. During my junior season, I asked if I could kick for the football team and it worked out.

    I only kicked extra points, but that allowed me to have at least one claim to fame in my high school career.
