Personal Highlights

I am attending Garner Magnet High School in Garner, NC where I participate on the high school swim team and hold a 4.50 weighted G.P.A. (3.67 unweighted, with 3 AP and 2 IB classes this year). I am involved in SAALT and Beta Club, and I also play piano regularly for my church. Also, just this month (November 2017), I completed my Eagle Scout project with Boy Scouts of America.

I would really like to swim in college for a strong team because my ultimate swimming dream is to be on the U.S. Olympic team in 2020 or 2024 (or both).

I had been swimming in summer league for 7 years, but I wanted to get a lot better and focus on competitive swimming as my sport of choice since I like it so much. I initially began club swimming with RSA here in Raleigh in August 2015, but I was only getting 1 hour of pool time per day, so I decided to switch to Marlins of Raleigh where I could get 2-1/2 hours a day in the senior group with Coach Jonathan Watson. I swam there with my younger brother for 14 months before recently transitioning to New Wave and Head Coach John Roy's Senior Group where I gain experience with different pool equipment and morning CrossFit 3X/week. We also swim outside which gives me a different perspective from being indoors.

I am a recruit with American College Connection with Coach Lori Payne. Thanks for reading my info.

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

There are two reasons, really. One is because I don't want to have only classes be my whole college life. I think that might be pretty boring. I know I'm going to need something else to take up some of my time and to be an outlet for my mind. Also, I hope to get swimming scholarship offers to help with paying for school, too. I think I should be able to get some academic scholarships, but all the financial help possible is definitely welcome, especially if I end up going out of state.

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

I have helped a couple of swimmers on our high school team that needed help when they weren't as strong at swimming as they wanted to be (I could tell they were embarrassed on the first day of high school practice so I tried to let them know there were a lot of people of different abilities and that's why it's a team sport, so we can help each other get better). I am also responsible for leading activities at church in youth group, once in a while, as well as leading some meetings and activities in Boy Scouts (as part of the Eagle Scout requirement). My Eagle Scout project involved erecting two flagpoles and landscaping an exhibit area for a local rescue team.

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

I try to eat well (most of the time) and supplement my food with protein drinks and get a lot of sleep, but one thing I started doing more in the past year is telling swimmers that beat me congratulations at the end of a race. I hate losing more than anything, but it makes me feel better when I tell the winner "good race, good job" instead of focusing on my losing. Each time I lose it pushes me to improve and get better, making me faster in the long run. I noticed I swim a lot faster when I'm surrounded by swimmers in all the lanes -- we push each other to go faster.

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

I've participated in or led many activities in our community through Boy Scouts of America like food pantry drives and church maintenance and rehabilitation, as well as home improvements for families in need during weekend or holiday mission trips. It makes me feel really good to give back to the community that supports me and to help people that might not be as lucky as me. I am very blessed and very lucky.
