This is a great question, Steven. I played college football, and the best advice I can give is to be disciplined and work....work incredibly hard and be coachable. I did not play professionally, nor did I have the opportunity, but to make it to the next level you have to be fully committed - both on the field, in practice and in the classroom. Don't skip a workout, don't skip a film session and don't skip a class - if you really want to play at the next level, it's going to take a lot of commitment and willingness to sacrifice to build into a professional athlete. The best advice I ever received playing in college was to work as if someone is going to beat you for your job, every day.
