Jr. Seau has been an inspiration to me ever since I was a little kid. I grew up in La Jolla a few blocks away from Jrs house. I had the opportunities as a young kid to attend some football summer camps at Bishops High School in La Jolla with Jrs son. I grew remarkably close with Jrs son and developed a friend ship that lasted for that summer as I coached him in sports. I was one of the older kids in this camp and he was one of the youngest. I learned many things from Jrs son about life, team-ship and much more. Tt was an opportunity of a lifetime. I played in Jrs NFL Camp at a middle school in PB and it was their that I first played tackle football. I developed a love for sports and for the man. I have Jr. Seau autographs all over my room from, hats, pennants, too wall posters.
As a little boy I have been going to Jr. Seau’s restaurant down in Mission Valley for birthdays or just to watch the game. Most recently, my friends and I had visited Seau’s for the Aztecs NCAA Loss to North Carolina State. Jr. Seau has personally touched my life. Jr. instilled a love for football in my heart that has never faded away and now had grown stronger than It ever has been. I want everyone to know Jr. Seau’s legacy will continue in his nephew Micah Seau. A grey shirt freshman at San Diego State University and a Linebacker. His spirt will live on not only in his family but in the people who Jr. Seau has touched. Micah if you need anything you have the Aztec Nation behind you. Jr. you were one hell of a man, and will live in side my heart for ever. Each and every time I stepped on the football field I thought of you and will continue to think if you. This morning, the world lost one of the best men to have ever walked the face of the earth. I am glad that I was able to meet you.
