Personal Highlights

Hockey is a big, important part of my life that I could never give up. I have practice at least 3 days a week, and I'm out of town many weekends usually for tournaments or showcases. I have been playing since I was 6 years old and have kept improving ever since then. I started out as a skater but became a permanent goal tender when I played my first year of tier 1 hockey. I was only 10 years old at the time and had played at a variety of different levels throughout my life until then. Currently, I play for the Chicago Mission U19 team, and I am the starting goalie. I love my team and the atmosphere of being at the rink and being on the ice, not worrying about anything else besides stopping the next shot. The rink is a place for me to forget about my day and focus on getting better.

School is also a very important part of my life. I am a senior at Marian Central Catholic High School and will graduate in 2016. I am enrolled in the highest classes that I can take and continue to get good grades. My education means a lot to me and I put a lot of time and effort into my work. My goal one day is to win a National Championship and attend a D1 college for a good education but also good hockey. I have not decided on a major yet, but I am considering optometry, physical therapy, and nutrition - some sort of career where I can help others improve their lives.

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.

Leadership can be shown on and off the ice. Since I'm a goalie, I don't let my team have any easy shots. They need to work to get one by me because otherwise I would be cheating my teammates and cheating myself which doesn't help anyone get better. Off the ice I encourage people and try to lead the team with warm ups and dry land training.

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

I pursue "healthy athletic performance" as a student-athlete. I put school first in my life because good grades and success in school is really important to me. For hockey, I follow a nutritional diet and work out off the ice. My focus is to stay positive and work to succeed.

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

I am involved in many community service activities. My school has a club called Key Club. This is a service club and they do all types of service projects to help people in our community. Some projects I have helped in so far are Peanut Day, which we help an organization collect money donations for the poor, and volunteering at the Helping Paws Animal Center where we helped clean animal cages and got to play with the dogs and cats there. Outside of school I also volunteer at the food pantry and help sort out the food donations that they get. For hockey I help coach young goalies at my old rink. These are all important to me because I like to help people and make their day. I love working with little kids because I want them to succeed and become better and hopefully remember me like I remember my first coach who taught me to be the goalie I am today.
