Luis Ramos showed up after Christmas break and told me he was going to play football for us. Luis was 6'2" 350lbs plus. Lets face it Luis needed to make some life choices, not just athletic choices. Since that time, Luis has been a mainstay in our training facility. The past 3 months, I have watched Luis go from barely running a mile on the eliptical machine to over 4 miles a day. He has shed probably 25-30 lbs, and added muscle. I don't know what kind of football player Luis will be, he has never played before. I do know that he is a pleasure to have in the weight room and he quietly inspires me daily with his drive to change his life. I don't know of a kid in the school that has shown more dedication to his goals. I am very proud of Luis Ramos, and its time we recognize him as Player of the Week. Keep working hard and congratulations.
