1) Why do you collect cards and who/what influenced you to start?- The reason why I collect cards is becasue it gives me something to do when I'm bored and it gives me a hunt for cards that I'm working hard to get.

My mom influenced me to collect sports cards. I remember when she gave me a green binder full of commons and insert cards that she was saving for me when I got old enough. She gave it to me when I was about 8 years old and she got me into collecting at the age of 5. (15 years old now).



2) Who is your biggest role model?- My biggest role model is my mom and here's why. She was married to someone that didn't have a care in the world for her and she cared about me enough to leave with nothing except the clothes on her back along with me. She has had to raise me by her self from the second that I was born. She also took a big step by going to college (University Of Arkansas) so she could provide a better life, house, clothes, etc for me and to better herself and carrer.


3) What is the most recent "nice thing" or "good deed" you have done for someone?- The most recent thing "nice thing" and "good deed" that I've done is give a homeless guy the rest of the money out of my wallett. I had my mom turn around so I could give it to him. It's the same guys that sells newspaper for $1. He's there every day so I really wanted to give him money. I've done it the last few times I've seen him out there.


4) Who was the "someone" from question 3?- It was a homeless guy.

5) What is your favorite subject in school and why?- My favorite subject in school is math. My teacher has really inspired me to like math and possibly be a math teacher one day. (It used to be my least favorite subject). The reason why it's my favorit subject is becasue it's something that I used to suck at and now I've proven that I can do it.

6) What grades do you get in school?- A-Day. Phy Science- 70.
Algebra I- 100.
Spanish- 50. (Trying to get a tutor, but no luck so far.)
AVID- 100.

B-Day- JROTC- 100.
Algebra I- 100.
Geography- 85.
English/Language- 93

7) Are you on the honor role? No. Working hard to get there.

8) Do you volunteer for any committees or organizations?- I signed up to volunteer for Hands On Nashville. Need to call them so I can volunteer next weekend.

9) Do you play sports?- Not at the moment, but I am going to play baseball (pitcher) this year for my high school. Try outs are Wendsday.

10) What NFL team do you collect?- New England Patriots.

11) What would you like to be when finished with school?- I would like to do one of the two. Own my own sports card shop. Join the Army. I am most likely going to the Army and when I get old enough settle down and open up a card shop.

12) How old are you?- I'm 15 years old.

Thank you so much for the contest.

1) Why do you collect cards and who/what influenced you to start?
When I was younger my brother was into collecting and thats sort of how I got into it. I always followed what he would do and it stuck.

2) Who is your biggest role model?
My biggest role model? Thats a tough one, if it were to be someone I knew personally I'd have to say my brother, if it wasn't personal I'd say Bruce Lee.

3) What is the most recent "nice thing" or "good deed" you have done for someone?
Most recent nice thing, or good deed, I've done would have to be bailing a good friend out of jail, even though I couldn't afford it.

4) Who was the "someone" from question 3?
It was a close friend from junior high.

5) What is your favorite subject in school and why?
My favorite subject in school is definitely computer graphics, probably because I excel at it and I make money off of what I learn.

6) What grades do you get in school?
I recently did my first semester in college, and I finished with a 3.87, which was all A's except 1 B+.

7) Are you on the honor role?
I should be on Dean's list.

8) Do you volunteer for any committees or organizations?
I might join Honor Society this semester.

9) Do you play sports?
I don't play any sports in school, but I enjoy playing almost all sports recreationally.

10) What NFL team do you collect?
Definitely the New York Giants, their actually the reason I started to collect again.

11) What would you like to be when finished with school?
When I finish school I'd like to work a career I'm happy in and make enough money to support my family and live comfortable without having to sacrifice ridiculous amounts of time away from them.

12) How old are you?
Just turned 23 recently.

(edited) didn't realize by young ones it was meant as teenagers, I assumed it was new-b's on the site lol, my fault.
