Additional Questions:
Why do you want to be recruited to play sports in college?
-
Athletes are often leaders on and off the field. Please provide one example of how you have demonstrated leadership in both areas.

On the field: I have been on the track team since my Freshman year. As a Junior I would lead warm-ups as well as guide the throwers through practice when Coach had to be at the Frosh/ Soph Meets.

Off the field: As stated above I am a leader in my temple youth group. I also am an assistant teacher for our Religious School. I started Tae Kwon Do when I was 4 years old. I earned my 2nd degree black belt when I was 15. I taught classes and ran birthday parties at the Tae Kwon Do Studio. I now work at a local bowling alley where I lead parties.

Please explain how you pursue "healthy athletic performance" as a student-athlete.

As a student-athlete balance is extremely important. When I am working out whether on the football field, practicing technique for throwing or in the weight-room I am extremely focused on my workout. Coaches as well as my Tae Kwon Do background have taught me to be extremely focused and efficient in my workouts. My Tae Kwon Do background taught me the meaning of dedication, desire and discipline.
This focus allows me to have balance so that when I am off the field I can pursue activities such as leadership for my youth group, hold down a job as well as have time for much needed relaxation and time with friends.

Please describe how you are involved in service in your community and why these efforts are important to you.

I have been involved in my temple youth group for the past 4 years. This year I am the President. We plan social action activities each month. We have raised money for causes such as the Invisible Children in Darfur as well as volunteered our time in our own food pantry.
