Xavier Smith

My name is Xavier Smith I met Rashawn at church. Well, he found out that I played football and he would just help me give me some advice; play hard, play every play like you're like it's your last down, just keep working, strive for excellence. Rashawn is a great influence. You knew, that he was going to go somewhere in life. The qualities that have inspired me from Rashwan; to work hard, perseverance, always keep working; never stop. I attended camp at Eastern Carolina University. When some parts in the camp got hard, I just remembered Rashawn always telling me to push, keep fighting and then a couple of days later I received a scholarship. I have taken some of the advice Rashawn has given me to my sister, my friends, even adults sometimes. I feel as though the advice he has given me, has made me the man that I am today.
