He had hence won a lot of MVPs in half. He also expressed that the football game has given him every quality of life he is thankful for. 

During off-seasons, he describes the time as contemplation. Because according to him, he had no intention of creating a drama in media after his season 16 break, but things turned out differently.

Moreover, he has been part of 17 seasons. He won MVP in one of his matches in season 17, but he was substituted.

He has seen a lot of conversations and situations. According to him, no one knows players, locker room, squad, or decision player make better than him.

Aaron gave up on football 

Aaron gave an interview on the Graham Bensinger podcast where he talked about him quitting football. 

The interviewer started the interview by asking Aaron about any D1 scholarship that he got in high school. 

Aaron said that he got zero football scholarships while he was in school and the reason behind it was him not being unknown about it. 

Aaron grew up in a very small place, and he and his parents did not have much exposure. Not many people knew his name, and because of that, he didn't have any scholarships in his high school days. 

He said that he worked hard as he didn't get any scholarships. 

He said that he tried to figure out what he wanted in his life in spring, and he mentioned that it was a big moment for him. 

He wanted to play baseball, and he was confused about what to do. At that time, coach Rigsby from Butte College reached out to him and then he started playing for Butte

While playing a game with All-Star, his confidence was boosted, and he played well in that game. He trained himself hard. 

Aaron then talked about giving up on football. As he was playing baseball, he was very focused on playing summer baseball with the Lyon team, and he was not sure what to do. 

He had three options: to play football, baseball, or be on the All-Star team. His first love is football, so he chose football over others. 

The interviewer then wanted to know about Purdue's rejection letter that he received. He said that it was his first rejection letter, and he took it as a slap on his face. 

And that was the time when he stopped playing football for some time, but he later came back to the track and started playing football again.
