How I am involved in service in my community and why these efforts are important to me:

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.

Athletes are often leaders on and off the field. One example of how I have demonstrated leadership in both areas:

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.

How I pursue "healthy athletic performance" as a student-athlete:

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.
