This past Wednesday, Los Angeles Sanitation recognized my father for all the years of hard work and dedication he has given to his job. It was a proud moment for our entire family and especially for me.
My dad didn't have an easy upbringing at all, it's remarkable how far he's come and how hard he's worked. I'm glad it doesn't go unnoticed. Branton and I learned to understand priorities and family from an early age. You've got to do everything in your power to make sure your family is taken care of. Both my mother and father have done that for us.
He also had a dream to play in the NFL and do all these things, but it didn't end up working out because of various circumstances. But he's been able to live vicariously through his son. That makes me pretty happy too. You always want to make your dad proud.
