Chiefs of Santaluces: Kevin Mendelsberg

Davidson Domond, Staff Writer

“I first started play playing football when I was four, and from the moment I put the football into my hands I knew this was what I wanted to do my whole life. I always thought football was a fun sport to play until I began to love it and it became a passion for me. Once I got the passion for the game it felt like I couldn’t live without it, [football] felt like second nature to me. And if it wasn’t for football I wouldn’t be the person I am today. I wouldn’t have met the friends that I’m still close to today, and I wouldn’t be able to be where I’m at now. My love for football just grew and it came to the point where I just felt like I couldn’t live without it, and I wouldn’t know what to do anymore if I couldn’t play it. Also I have a lot of people to prove wrong and that just motivates me to keep playing this game. Even when I was young, playing football on a higher level like college then hopefully into the NFL was always a dream of mine. I’ve always wanted to be one of those big time players that everyone enjoys and gets excited about when they see him playing on television.”
