Athlete you try building your game around: I Try to build my game around Jerry Rice and Calvin Johnson. I like to build my game around Rice because he is quick and runs precise and smooth routes and he is an NFL hall of famer, one of the best to ever play wide receiver if not the best. And Calvin Johnson because he has speed, strength and the ability to leap up and get the ball over any corner and is a future hall of famer. And I like to leap up and get the ball too. I also want too be in the NFL and become the best wide receiver.
