How hard are you willing to work to become the best you can be? Are you willing to do all that is possible to truly reach your full potential? Sometimes you come across an athlete who lives, eats, and breathes their craft. Please allow me to introduce you to Drenin Busch.
Busch must feel like he is on a rocket ship of sorts. He started playing football when he was nine for the Transcona Nationals. He went from the Nationals to playing for Murdoch MacKay, where in Grade 9 he became the starting running back and the team won the AA championship.
Then in Grade 10, Busch made the switch to quarterback, and there begins the rocket ship ride. He has since led the Murdoch MacKay Clansmen to great success, was the starting quarterback for the provincial under-18 team, and was the MVP at the Blue and Gold Classic.
Busch’s skill set as a football player is undeniable. He is smart, has tremendous football instinct, has a good arm, runs really well, and is a darn good placekicker and punter as well.
Most of all, Busch has a level of "want" in his heart that isn’t going to be matched by many. Of his many physical gifts, his level of want is what sets him apart. My friend showed me a video of Busch literally carrying and dragging four defensive players down the field at the Under-18 National Championship. I watched the play several times. The "want" on display during that play is the kind that defines a player for years to come.
Busch is a talent, and his talent is perfectly complemented by his "want" factor. Don’t be surprised if in a few years down the road you hear the name Drenin Busch on a Friday night on TSN.
