AUGUSTA, GA (WFXG) -

Both on and off the field, Nathaniel Foreman exemplifies the old adage it's not how you start, but how you finish'.

"My high school career started off bad, terrible," said Foreman.

Teachers said he was distracted and channeling his energy into the wrong places.

Kim Lovett, Foreman's math instructor said, "For two to three years, everyone has been in Nate's ear. This is you, you are above average."

Until one day, Nate said he unlocked the secret that pushed him to reach his full potential.

 "Combine something that you love with something that's a priority. I combined my athletics with school, that improved me, dramatically," said Foreman.

That dramatic improvement hasn't gone unnoticed.

"He finally bought into the fact that everybody's expectation of him were more than his expectations of himself. That's in the classroom and on the football field this year," said Lovett. 
 
"From 2:30 to 7:30, I'm at practice. From 8:00 to 9:30, I'm studying with my mom," said Foreman.

Seeing the fruits of his hard work and dedication is what Nate said motivates him to be an example for students all across Josey High School.

 

"His future is bright," said Lovett.
