Name: Dylan Skelley
How it all started: I started in kindergarten, so I’ve been playing for six years now.
Biggest role model: All my coaches on my team.
Greatest moment: Getting my first sack!
Ultimate goals: To have fun, be a leader, and help my team do their best.
Pre-game rituals: I watch football videos on YouTube. That helps me get pumped up when we’re in line ready to go on the field, and I concentrate on having fun, doing my job, and winning!
What’s next: Continuing to play football! When I do my job, I get pumped up during a game and feel that energy. I know this is my sport.
Favorite player: JJ Watt because he inspires me to do what I love. He never gives up and never quits, and that helps keep me pumped to never give up either!
Why do you enjoy football? I practice hard, I go out there and do what I’m supposed to do, and I have fun! We all have a job to do—I can’t do my job without my teammates, and they can’t do theirs without my help. We’re a team!
