I am currently the starting Defensive End but have also played other positions in the past such as LB, S and WR. I ran a 40 in 4.47 and a 60 in 6.8. My vertical jump is a 33. I have 38 solo tackles this year with 18 of them for a loss. I am a leader and a team player and will play wherever I am needed to help support my team. While playing in a variety of positions in the past I believe I will be an asset to the team and I am ready to take my skills to the next level.
I believe that your actions and participation on the field determines one's leadership. While on the field, I put in my all for the game, my team and coaches. A strong leader will lead by example. Throughout every game regardless of the outcome, I give my coaches and teammates my all - everything I have to offer. I will not give up or give in and I will give it my all.
Off of the field, I enjoy volunteering and assiting with youth football. Teaching young players the fundementals of football and watching them develope as they learn the sport is rewarding.
Healthy athletic performance to me means giving 100% effort and heart into something you love. I pursue this on the field because this is my passion. I always make it my goal to work my hardest and leave all I've got on the field. This carries over into how I pursue a healthy athletic performance in school. Without working hard in school to get good grades, I would not be an athlete. I treat my grades like football; the harder I work, the better they get. This is how I pursue a healthy athletic performance as a student-athlete.
Throughout high school while actively participating in athletics both football and baseball; I have managed to volunteer over 200 hours outside of school. The majority of my time was spent at Austin's local Level 1 Trauma Center in the Emergency Department. While I feel that volunteering is very important to one's success, I have recently discovered that it helps mold you to become a stronger person and a community team leader.
Academics is my main priority. Outside of that both football and baseball take up the majority of my time during the school year. During the summer break I play select baseball. This past summer one of my tournament was held in Joplin, MO where the category 5 hurricane hit just a couple of months before our tournament began. While visiting Joplin my family and I drove through the communities that were destroyed by the hurricane. While visiting Joplin, I spent a few hours volunteering with along with the local residents to clear up some of the trash and debris that was scattered throughout the community by this category 5 hurricane.
Because of school and sports my time is limited to outside events but when available I try to make the best of it and spend it wisely.
