What is your most memorable childhood experience?My most memorable childhood experience was when I scored a 92-yard fumble in 8th grade football. I told my team in the huddle I was going to do it, and to just watch. Then I yanked the football from the running back’s hands and spun around the FB that tried to tackle me, and I saw my teammates going crazy on the sideline. My coach head butted me while I was wearing a helmet, and everyone was celebrating when I got back on the sideline. I tied the game with that touchdown.
