My name is Timmy Elam and I’m the punter and kicker for the Florence Falcons. My full name is Timothy Tyler Elam, but my family and friends call me Timmy or Tyler. I’m a senior at Florence High School and will graduate in the spring of 2013.
I live in Florence, Alabama, with my parents, Tim and Holly Elam, and my two younger brothers, Joshua and Andrew. We attend the Eastwood Church of Christ on Leland Drive in Florence. My Dad is a deacon, my Mom a Sunday school teacher, and I help operate the Audio/Visual equipment and anywhere I'm needed.
I spend a lot time practicing and training with my team and kicking coaches. My training program also requires me to practice various kicking drills in my free time. It’s a lot of hard work, but nothing worth having comes easy.
Good grades don’t come easy either. Last semester I set a goal to make all As and Bs and accomplished that goal. For my senior year the goal is to make all As and Bs the entire year. The first semester will be the most challenging since I’ll be playing football, but it wouldn’t be a challenge if it wasn’t easy.
