Here is a short storyboard sequence the NFL asked me to do for their Football America: Our Stories documentary.  (Shout out to Jen Hager and Minkyu Lee for helping me out!)

I was able to finally see the documentary in its entirety this last Tuesday, and I am so overwhelmed and proud to be a part of it!  If you love football in any way, be sure to tune in.  It had me crying right from the beginning! I’m so happy my story could be a part of this celebration of America’s love of the game.  Football America: Our Stories will air on Super Bowl Sunday on FOX at 1pm ET.  Be sure and check it out! It will feature the final of this sequence, and a face time conversation I got to have with Tom Brady.

I got the thrill of my life yesterday when Robert Kraft, the owner of the New England Patriots, surprised me with a phone call to wish me luck in the NFL’s Together We Make Football contest!  This is the voicemail he left for me.  I got to speak to him on the phone shortly after.  I’m so glad I have this!  I’ll keep it forever!  It means so much to me!  I love him!  Thank you Mr. Kraft!  Thank you Patriots Nation!
