Volunteering has always been a big part of my life. My mother was a teacher’s aide and she would take me and my brothers to our elementary school to help the teachers. We would spend our days helping setup classrooms and cleaning erasers.


I saw firsthand the positive impact that volunteering had on those around me and the sense of community it created.  I knew that’s what I wanted to do with the rest of my life."

I saw the impact of community organizing at a very young age.

At 16, I volunteered at the Johnny Rodriquez Life Enrichment Center. One afternoon, I saw a few adults in their wheelchairs just sitting around and talking.  I had a football with me, so I tossed it to them and they started throwing it around.


I organized them into two sides and started playing parking lot football. From that day on, I organized them into a football team.


We started regular practices and would scrimmage. I spoke to community centers around south Texas with adults and youth confined to wheelchairs who were interested in playing football. They were able to organize teams and the Wheelchair Football League was born.
