Hi, I am Shawn Izadi and I am ecstatic to answer your questions! I didn't expect this to explode like it did but here is the link to the original post: http://us.reddit.com/r/pics/comments/1utm8n/people_told_me_i_couldnt_do_both_football_and/
Some background on myself: I am in my final semester at UT and will be finishing up my major in biochemistry this May. In august, I hope to be attending medical school with aspirations of becoming a surgeon. My love for football and band started in middle school but quickly grew through high school. After my sophomore year of high school, I gave up football to be the drum major of the band for the following two years. After I made it to UT, made the band, and 3 walk on tryouts later, I was able to follow my dream of being in both organizations and it has truly been an amazing experience!
