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.

As a pitcher, it's important to keep my teammates focused on the game with a positive mindset. When errors occur, I encourage them to forget about it and be ready for the next pitch. I do my best to keep the hitters positive when they are not performing to their best. I have played with kids who sometimes get down on themselves for making a mistake and as a pitcher, a fielding mistake does not mean much to me. What means a great deal to me is that I have teammates ready for the next pitch. I assist our high school coaches with a summer baseball camp that is sponsored by our booster club for middle school kids. Young players participate in the camp to refine their skills with the coaching staff that they hope to play for one day. I help the coaches demonstrate drills, activities and various camp functions. At the end of the camp, a scrimmage is held between the campers and each helper is assigned a team. I make it my goal to help my team stay positive and use the skills they have learned.

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

As a student athlete, I do my best to maintain a healthy diet as well as exercise daily whether it is working out, playing basketball with my friends or various other activities. The physical edge is only half of the equation to being a student athlete. My high school coaches have always stressed the importance of being an excellent student from the first day of my freshmen year. As a student, I had to quickly adapt to maintaining my grades as well as working to get better on the field. Time management is important and is something that I strive to improve on each day. I have gotten better at prioritizing my school work, while allotting sufficient time to get better on the field.

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

I take the initiative to help my community in a number of ways. During my middle school and early high school years, I assisted teachers at my former elementary school that sponsors an annual fund raiser (Hoops for Heart) for the National Heart Society. I recruited several friends as helpers and was assigned a group of elementary school students to teach, assist, and supervise while they performed physical activities at various stations. During high school, I have participated in various eye-opening experiences. I became a student coach for the Allied Soccer team at my high school where I assist in organizing games, practices, and assist kids who need some extra help on the field. Allied soccer is all about team work and having fun for kids who do not always have the opportunity to be included in a competitive atmosphere. I also assist the Special Olympics during bowling events. Surrounding counties come together for fun and competitive bowling tournaments. I organize, assist, and supervise events as well as mentor an assigned group of participants.
