I give everything I got on and off the court. The best part of my game is my mental ability and my overall power in all shots. My serve is what makes or breaks me in most matches. Most of the time my serve is on and I am hard to break on serve because of the power and kick, but sometimes my serve will be off and I have a harder time winning matches. My return game is usually consistent but not really anything special. I am successful in a match when I find a way to get to the net. My defensive game is the dark horse of my game and can come out and be a really good weapon when I need it. What distinguishes me from most players is the ability to turn another players offense into my offense using a counter-defense attack.

Teams & Coach Information
I have always taken a natural leadership role on the tennis team and I am usually the motivator to help others become their best. My faith is what motivates me and I try to reflect that in everything I do so others can do the same. Off the courts I would consider myself a leader by example by simply doing my best in everything I do. I love to encourage other people and show them their full potential as an athlete or a student. I believe there is a calling for everyone in this world and I love helping people find their own calling to this world.
I definitely put academics before athletics. I try my best in both although athletics is more fun. I believe athletics can bring out the true character of every person and it is a healthy way of living. I want to be my absolute best in athletics, but I know that most won't make a living based on their athletic abilities so my future is mainly determined by academics and what I do in school. There is no laziness when it comes to pursuing a healthy student-athlete performance because it takes a lot of time to achieve greatness in both. After practice I go home and almost immediately start homework or study time to ensure I don't fall behind in school. I do believe that high school is a time that we all should enjoy so if I think I am pushing to hard I will ease down a little to enjoy the experience, but I have to remember why I am in school and that is get a good education for the future.
