Su’a Cravens puts in work
Su’a Cravens, USC commit and Vista Murrieta (Murrieta, California) safety, recalls his initial experience playing football at age seven.
“I was heavier for my age, so I played with older boys…My mom was real nervous that I’d get hurt,” says Cravens.
The nation’s No. 1 safety and No. 5 overall recruit for the Class of 2013 has always dominated at football and truly has a knack for the game.
It was the California native that actually wound up doing damage against the nine and 10-year-olds he played against.
On his first day of hitting drills, while performing one-on-ones, Cravens states he laid out the best player on the team.
Cravens love of the game was born at that moment. As a sixth grader, he put aside hanging out with friends at the beach in place of performing 50 pushups.
To no ones surprise, Cravens hard work definitely paid off. He matured early and tells reporters, “If you want to be the best at what you do, master your craft,” says Craven.
Cravens working ethic definitely came from his parents.
“When I was younger, my friends would say, Su let’s go play, but my dad would tell me, ‘You’re not going anywhere until you do your pushups.’ I’d end up missing the beach. At first I’d get mad, but later I really appreciated it. It taught me discipline. You have to handle your business,” says Cravens.
It’s amazing how motivated and hard working Cravens is.
“My dad always told me if you get complacent, somebody’s going to get better than you,” says Cravens.
