Additional Questions:
Why do you want to be recruited to play sports in college?

I have been wrestling since I was 5 years old. I played football and did competitive swimming as well throughout my childhood. But as time drew on I began the process of eliminating the other sports one by one to focus on my true passion which is wrestling. I knew by 8th grade that I wanted to wrestle in college and began to focus all my time and energy to that goal. I feel that my work ethic, drive, attention, and stamina are all attributes that are top notch and could be of great service to a college program.

Athletes are often leaders on and off the field. Please provide one example of how you have demonstrated leadership in both areas.

I was co-captain of the North Penn Wrestling team for the 2015/16 season (my junior year) and now for the 2016/17 season (my senior year). Having this title does instill a sense of leadership within you. To have others look to you for support, direction and input is a task that you must take on in this role.

Off the mat, I still carried the duties of a leader with me. I try to live up to the standards of the title and meet its expectations.

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

Refuel when depleted.
Hydrate.. hydrate... hydrate.
Listen to your body. Rest when you can and recuperate.
Injuries can be curtailed when you know you are pushing past the edge.

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

I volunteer my time and assist with the youth wrestling programs in my area. I appreciated the knowledge others gave to me coming up through the programs and found it to be a valuable resource. I know being there to connect with the kids and give the advice and instruction they want is something they really like.

I also am a member of the North Penn Key Club and do volunteer work within my community.
