I played high school football (played WR/FS) always knowing my goal in life was to eventually get into the NFL one day someway, somehow. I now have 13 years of management experience and have run my own retail store and replacement contracting company for 8 years. I've always had a passion for football. I started really learning the nuances of the game when I worked on the field for 2 years at Joe Robbie Stadium when I was a kid. I realized I had a great eye for talent when I've watched film on YouTube and watched the NFL combine on TV for years and have consistently picked the diamonds in rough. This is my passion in life and now I'm pursuing my goal in life, which is to work my way up through the personnel department to become a General Manager. I have now become a certified scout being trained in the following fields of responsibilities of a football general manager, football contracts and player negotiation, football players evaluation; body type, mental makeup, playing ability, physical tools learned how to identify players who will succeed in the NFL, college scouting and rating college talent as it pertains to the NFL draft, traditional football scouting vs. new high tech scouting, techniques to evaluating the college all star games, relationships between the NFL, UFL, AFL and CFL leagues, player contracts, player trades and acquisitions, football franchise and stadium operations, how to run the front office of a football franchise, NFL war room strategies, capology & team contract negotiations, landing quality players through free agency and trades, negotiations with agents and players, NFL Draft combine evaluation; Shuttle, Vertical Jump, L-Cone, Forty & Broad Jump, the making of a football scouting report, the language of football scouting, NFL Draft preparation, cap value of a player, in-depth analysis on team spending vs. player production, in-depth analysis on the draft and free agency trends, player contracts, player trades, and acquisitions, capology and team contract negotiations.

I would cherish an opportunity to work in this industry on a full time basis. I feel honored to work with Blitzalytics and I hope all enjoy my contributions to the team.
