Junior Isaiah Love has had a lot of attention from football
recently. He received his first offer from San Jose State University on Jan.
19. His second offer from San Diego State University just arrived on March 4.

He started off by just having fun as a kid, and ended up falling in love with the game. Now Love is one the best
prospects at West Covina High School. Love said that football has taught him lessons that will help him contribute to his future.

 

Not only has it taught him valuable life lessons, but also has changed his life in many positive ways.

 

“It’s made me grow as a person, showing me that not all things come easy and I have to work for them,” Love said. “Responsibility and time management have been my biggest and best attribute from football.”

 

Since football has done so much for Love already he says, “I will definitely allow my kids to play, I want them to learn all the lessons I already have.”

 

Because of the expectations for him playing in college, he now has to think about the future, as playing means the risk of a serious head injury.

 

“I try my hardest not to
think about it because if I do think about getting hurt, eventually it will
happen,” Love said. “All I can do is tackle in the correct and proper way that helps prevent injuries to me and the other player.”

 

Love said his uncle is the person he looks up as his idol. When his uncle was in sports he would wear No. 3. He would always tell Love, who wears the same number, “you could never rock my number better than me.” Love has worn that number to prove to his uncle he indeed can rock it better.

 

Love definitely sets himself apart from other high school football players. Where most say they hope they make it, Love is definitive: “I’m going to make it.”
