I went to my Uncle’s house and my Aunt said he and my cousins were out back playing football and that I should go join them. I didn’t care for football at all so I was like I won’t play but I’ll go watch them. When I got back there I saw how much fun my Uncle and cousins were having while playing football. That day my Uncle taught me football and ever since then I never looked back.”
