Ginn Academy's Demerius Goodwin plays football and runs track.  He is well-known for his leadership skills.

"A good leader is a person your teammates can rely on," Goodwin explained.

Academically, Goodwin has received high honor roll every semester of high school.  Goodwin said he is motivated by his mother.

"She sacrificed so much for me. I feel like I owe her back," Goodwin said.

He is headed to Morgan State, where he received a full ride to play football.  Goodwin would like to pursue a masters degree in sports administration after he is done with his undergraduate degree. 

As he finishes his career at Ginn Academy, he hopes to leave behind some important lessons.

Goodwin said, "My advice for the kids coming in is to stay focused and receive every opportunity for success."
