Why football is his sport of choice: “I have been playing football since I was young. It’s something I have always been able to do. It takes my mind off of everything, and I can let everything out on the football field.”

Wade has started 15 straight games since the 2012 season. He leads the team in total tackles with 27 (21 solo, 6 assists). Before the season, Wade was named to the Preseason second-team All-Conference USA by Athlon Sports.
