Freshman year - This was my second year playing lacrosse. I was named JV Captain by the coaches. As well as being selected as JV captain, I was the only freshman to play a game on Varsity, and to score a goal in that game with them.
My hopes for junior year are very high for myself, as well as my team.
I began playing lacrosse in 8th grade, and have loved it since. Although my high school, Crossroads College Preparatory School, does not have a lacrosse team, I have found a home at Clayton High School. I get along with all of the guys exceptionally, and try and be a leader on the team, as well as a threat on the field.
I am a Junior at Crossroads College Preparatory School, who does not have a lacrosse team. State rules allow me to play for Clayton High School, and I am currently a starting midfielder on varsity.
I believe that being a leader on and off the field will get you far in life. I have displayed this by being captain of my JV lacrosse team freshman year, and trying to be a big presence on the Varsity team now, at a school I don't go to. As for soccer, I have been a starter since freshman year and captain my junior and senior year. Off the field I have displayed this by running and being elected onto the student council at my school. I also strive to be a leader, and role model for younger kids. This is why I try to conduct myself well on and off the field, as well as coaching and teaching kids how to play the game the right way.
I pursue this by balancing my priorities properly, while also being the best I can at what I do. I take pride in maintaining excellent grades and working hard to try to become the best I can at what I do. Although this may mean I don't have a ton of free time, I am becoming the person I strive to be and hope to build a drive that will remain with me in life. Sports are a huge part of my life, but so is education, and I hope to continue to balance great education along with playing soccer competitively.
In saint louis, community is everything. We are a somewhat small town in which everyone knows each other. I have given back to the community a few different ways. I have done community service at many different organizations including: Operation Food Search, KidSmart, and South Side Day Care. This gives me great insight into many different communities and the struggles many people go through and what we should not take for granted. I also work at the public University City pool as a lifeguard over the summer. Then I began coaching the middle school soccer team at my school. As well as coaching a clinic in University City every Saturday for kids ranging from kindergarten to 3rd grade.
