Football: A Servite player shows what hard work does

Through the years, I've run into lots of high school athletes who've given me inspiration just from talking with them, and one of those is Anaheim Servite cornerback Karlton Dennis.

For every athlete who showed up to high school thinking he was too small or not talented enough to play, Dennis is proof of what can happen when you keep working hard and believe in yourself.

Let him tell his story, and he does in this video.

ES if you want to see a kid that has overcomed adversity of height, then Michael Davison is your guy. He is a hard worker and proves himself to be a threat when he has the ball. He currently is enrolled at Crespi. The next time you go to a Crespi game make sure to look for him.

Terrific story ES. Listening to this young man speak was a breath of fresh air. So humble, thankful and articulate. What a great role model he is for his peers. Wish only the best for Servite and Karlton Dennis this season.

Karlton Dennis has been doing big things since his freshman year. Him and Jordan Jones are the best CB duo in SoCal right now. Good luck tomorrow night against Edison.


Have any of you seen the kid at Crespi who stands about 5 feet even. Talk about overcoming a size issue. 5'9 is about average for a HS kid...
