Six-year-old Roman Burgess is currently in his first year playing the game of football, proving to be something special with a bright future ahead of him. A key asset to the Lauderhill Broncos, playing both sides of the ball as a full back and linebacker where his presence is known every time he touches the field.


Even though he’s in his first season, it didn’t take long for Burgess to figure out how to exploit the weaknesses in an offense or defense where he can make them pay for every mistake. In his first year alone, he found the endzone six times, proving to be a consistent, reliable player to the Broncos. He loves when the ball is in his hands, as he likes playing running back more, to orchestrate the offense and prove to get histeam the desired win. Burgess loves to put his dead down and lower

his shoulder to get the extra yards, as his hard-nosed play at such a young age is truly special.


His favorite player is New Orleans Saints Running Back Alvin Kamara, as he’s proven to be a touchdown machine ever since he entered the NFL, something Burgess strives to do in the coming future. While he wants to make it tothe big stage, Burgess has his eyes set on Florida State University where he’d love to display his talent to theSeminoles fan base.


While most kids Roman’s age don’t even think about improving their game, his dedication to having the upper handcome gameday is what separates him from the playing field. His training consists of running up hills with his coach Tobias Doe, just like legendary Bears Running Back Walter Payton. Burgess also works out with his dad, where he does speed and footwork drills with cones to improve his agility. In his free time, he enjoys dancing and relaxing while playing video games.


Burgess has his eyes set for next season, where he’ll have a whole offseason of training as he’ll look forward to displaying his talent and hard work on the field. His father and uncle motivate him to do his best, as they want to see him succeed. With his hard work and determination, Burgess is someone who can make an immediate impact.
