Other Academic Information
I just completed my Junior Year at Garner Magnet High School where I was enrolled in 4 different AP classes, 3 Honors classes, and one Academic class. For my Senior Year, I am registered for 3 AP, 3 IB and 2 Academic classes. My weighted GPA through the end of my Junior Year is 4.50 and unweighted is 3.75. I took my first ACT in February 2017 and got a 25 composite (27 Math, 24 Science, 22 English and 28 Reading) without preparing, so as a benchmark I'm pretty sure I can do better. I took the May 2017 SAT and scored a 1300 (out of 1600) and will take it one or two more times, as well.

Personal Highlights

I am attending Garner Magnet High School in Garner, NC where I participate on the high school swim team and hold a 4.45 weighted G.P.A. (3.8 unweighted, with 4 AP classes this year). I also participate in a couple of other clubs like SAALT and Beta Club. I play piano and I am still working toward Eagle Scout as of Spring 2017 (I just mapped out and planned my Eagle Scout project with an emergency rescue facility in Garner, NC in March). I really want 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 am also in a summer swim league and I swim year round for Marlins of Raleigh in Raleigh, North Carolina (switched from RSA Wahoos).

I've been swimming in summer league for 7 years, but I wanted to get a lot better and focus on swimming since I like it so much. So in 2015, I started swimming in a year round program at Triangle Aquatic Center after being evaluated by Coach Raz Cuparencu (with the TAC Titans S3's) in April 2015, then a friend from NC State convinced me at summer swim league to switch to RSA beginning August 2015. Since RSA was crowded at the top and I was only getting 1 hour of pool time per day, after a year there I decided to switch to Marlins of Raleigh where I can get 2-1/2 hours a day in the senior group with Coach Jonathan Watson. I swim there with my younger brother who is three years younger (we're in the same group).

I hope to get a LOT faster and stronger, especially once I start to learn how to use my core muscles better from taekwando and make use of my legs a lot more in all of my strokes (especially in breast stroke where I just learned this year I was kicking wrong all these years -- way too far out toward the lane lines). I really, really want to be a lot better and correct some mechanical flaws in some places (like my drag in butterfly and breast and on turns -- a lot of that showed up in videos when I got tutored at the local YMCA and at NC State's summer swim camp with Coach Braden Holloway).

My academic goals for this year are to maintain or raise my GPA a little and score in the top 5% on both the ACT and SAT in one of the sittings in 2017. My swimming goals for the end of 2017 are to qualify for eastern North Carolina regionals in every event I enter at high school and to make the North Carolina State high school championship meet in at least 3 events in February 2018, winning at least one of them.

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). In a few months, I'll be leading my Eagle Scout project.

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.
