PERSONAL MESSAGE FROM DREW
I had always been an athlete, and I always knew I was fast, but it wasn’t until I put my God-given talents up against others that I knew that this was the sport that chose me. Over the years I’ve had my doubts and there have been many times that I’ve wished I could have been gifted at something that did not require so much pain and sacrifice to be great, but we do not choose our blessings and I know my talent is just that.
Olympian Drew attended Abilene Christian University with the hopes of being one of the better competitors on my team and the gratitude of receiving a free education. Little did I realize that there were bigger things in store for me. It was after my season at A.C.U that season when I began to dream big and to see the potential that I possessed.
The road between college and now has been rocky at times and nothing like I imagined when I left from college and decided to become a professional athlete. You never realize how much you want something until you have been tested and pushed to the brink of despair, and yet you still find yourself trudging forward, more determined than ever. I didn’t plan for this journey, but I have learned to embrace it. This sport has molded me into the person I am today; a stronger, more determined, confident, independent, and humble man, grateful for every opportunity I’ve been blessed with. I am a firm believer that I have taken the path that I have for a reason and that God is directing my steps.
I am looking forward to continuing to grow both as an athlete and a person and want to remain in this sport as long as I feel I have a purpose to fulfill. I believe that my best years are still ahead of me and I am excited about what the future holds.
