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.

I coach every week for kids starting diving ages 6-13. This allows me to not only be emerged in the diving environment, but also develop leadership qualities through the experience. Outside of the pool, I help tutor younger students in my high school library where I can make connections for the future.

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

As a potential engineering major, schoolwork is very important in my list of priorities. Currently I am on "Honor Roll" and taking "Advanced Placement" classes. I plan to excel in the "student" aspect of being a student athlete, but I also expect to dedicate much of my time in the pool diving.

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

Volunteering is an important part of learning leadership traits that develop character. I believe that philanthropic actions help yourself more than they help others. I volunteer at local organizations including: Carpenters Place, Rockford Rescue Mission, and frequently at Pregnancy Care Center Of Rockford.

Recruiting Video

Just posted my official recruiting video on the "game film" tab. Some of my 3 meter dives like 205b and 305b aren't on there but every thing else is. Thanks for your time.
New dives.

After a week of 3 meter at Indianna Dive Camp, I leaned almost a full 2 1/2 list and front 3 1/2!
