West Valley High School
My name is Mario Herrera. I am a 6' 285 lb defensive tackle/offensive line in Yakima, Washington. I have played football since I was 8 years old and have always loved the game. I aspire to play at the collegiate level and I am working hard to earn that opportunity. I am currently working out twice a day to add mass, get faster, and get stronger as I prepare for my next season of football at West Valley High School. In May 2017, I attended FBU Camp in Sammamish, WA and received an invitation to Top Gun. In June 2017, I attended a camp at Boise State University with my high school team. In July 2017, I attended Top Gun in Rock Hill, SC and was named to All FBU Top Gun Team Offensive Lineman for my class of 2021. I am currently attending Trench Mob at Rise Football Academy in Seattle, Washington. I am a team leader and I am an extremely hard worker on and off the field. As an honor roll student, with a 3.5 GPA. I am very serious about my studies. I volunteer at Children’s Village as a mentor to children with special needs. I am also involved with Special Olympics at my high school. Special needs children hold a special place in my heart because I have an older brother with Autism. I have also gone on church youth mission trips to serve the homeless. It would be a dream come true to have the ability to play at the college level. I am open to all possibilities and all opportunities. I will be working hard to earn an opportunity to play for a great football program and to earn a great college education.
