I am a defensive middie
One example of how I have been a leader on the field is always staying positive with my teammates. During the beginning of the year we lost 4 straight games. I was out with an injury to my ankle but I always stood on the sideline with the team pumping everybody up no matter what I score of the game was. An example of how I am a leader off the field is during my community service hours. I took it upon myself to help these kids out and show them ways to stay out of getting in trouble. At the Boys and Girls club we show the kids that sports are a way of staying out of trouble.
Ways that I pursue a healthy athletic performance is first before every game or practice I always get my schoolwork done. I do not wait until after practice and when I'm very tired. As soon as I get home I complete all of my schoolwork and then focus on practice. On the weekends during the season I will go to the gym and in the offseason I will workout five times a week. Also on the field I am as focused as can be. It does not matter if it is practice or a game I am always focused on making myself become a better lacrosse player.
I have had 34 hours of community service through 3 years of high school. My hours range from walking for cancer, to playing sports with kids at the Boys and Girls Club, to delivering turkey's on Thanksgiving. These hours are important to me because it shows me how lucky I am to have the support I have from my parents. These kids were dealt a troubled life and I feel that I should help out any way I can.
