"From the first day I played I knew I was better than the other guys. As a kid, you sense you can run faster or catch a little better. You can sense it, but you don’t think about it. You recognize some things are coming easier to you. I used to ask myself 'Why?’ Now I just accept it. I’ve been blessed, but my father always told me not to forget that there was someone out there better. So I worked really hard. I didn’t take it for granted.”
