I wake up every morning understanding how lucky I am for getting far in my life because of my father, Ali. He is a father who teaches his two sons all of the right things to help them both become a better man. I was thankful for that as a young boy, yet still learn from him today.
One thing that has brought my father and I close is the game of football and the Kansas City Chiefs.
When my family and I, prior to my brother’s birth, moved to the United States, I was only three years old. My dad heard about the game of football at one point in his life, but it never appealed to him. He grew up watching soccer and boxing because of his dad.
