Personal Highlights

I traded in my baseball cleats for diving as a Freshman and have gone to State for my High School every year. I competed at AAU Nationals this year with my club team and USA Zones as well. I am a very coachable, honest, hard working individual who really enjoys the sport of diving. I have learned so quickly and done well, but I know there is much more to learn. I really look forward to working with college coaches, and diving at the collegiate level.

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

I really enjoy diving and although I've only been diving for 3 years, I seem to have an affinity for it. I have gone to state for my high school every year and really look forward to learning more and competing at a higher level.

Athletes are often leaders on and off the field. Please provide one example of how you have demonstrated leadership in both areas.
-
Please explain how you pursue "healthy athletic performance" as a student-athlete.
-
Please describe how you are involved in service in your community and why these efforts are important to you.

I'm very involved in my community through my church. I volunteer at a soup kitchen for the homeless, spent weeks during the summer painting houses in the 3rd ward of Houston, done volunteer work for the public schools in our area and served the widows at our church. I served this last summer as an intern for the media department as Sagemont Church. I learned a great deal from some awesome video and audio technicians. I believe that to whom much is given much is expected and I'm very grateful for the good health, ability, and opportunity to serve that God has given me.
