I was 12 years old and was the ball boy for my brother’s (NFL quarterback Carson Palmer) varsity football. I had played a few years prior but it was this particular season when I fell in love.
MOST FOND MEMORY WITH WILSON IN HAND:
In high school I played with a Wilson 1001. I loved it. We went to the state championship and a different brand was sponsoring the game, but my coach ended up sanding off the Wilson logo so we could use it. We won the game.
YOUR HARDEST BATTLE:
I always battled the shadow of my brother. He never put any pressure on me, but it was ever present and palpable. It started in middle school, and I felt it through my entire career.
FAVORITE TIP TO GIVE YOUNG PLAYERS:
Fall in love with getting better. The game is fun, but the work is not necessarily fun. When kids fall in love with getting better, their ceilings rise.
FINISH THIS SENTENCE: NEXT FALL I AM GOING TO:
Watch several of the kids I work with achieve their goals.
YOUR FOOTBALL HERO/MENTOR:
My brother, Carson Palmer. He always treated everyone with respect and left it all on the field.
