Rated #4 goalie in California by MaxPreps.com: (http://www.maxpreps.com/leaders/lacrosse-spring-16/,save+percentage/california/stat-leaders.htm?classyear=all&position=g), and
I hope to be recruited to play lacrosse in college to compete at as high a level as possible and to better myself as a goalie. I have the drive to put in the extra effort to improve my skills and techniques further, as well as to help contribute towards my team's success. Mostly, however, I simply love lacrosse and playing goalie more than anything else in the world.
On the field, I am the voice of the defense, organizing and instructing players on match-ups, calling out ball positions, deciding formations, and leading clears to initiate offense possessions. I use the important leadership skills I learned from lacrosse in other aspects of my life as well, an example of this being my leadership role in Youth and Government. Y&G is a model legislature and court, and I participate as a bill chair leader as well as a head defense attorney within the program. Again, discipline, communication, and determination are key in my leadership roles, both on and off the field.
I believe in proper nutrition, hydration, exercise and sleep in order to keep performing and responding at peak levels and off-season training to maintain performance levels and lower risks of injury. A healthy body supports a healthy mind and time-management techniques together with extracurricular interests allow me to perform well academically as well as on the playing field.
I believe all persons should engage in giving back through community service. I have been involved in volunteering for the Westside Thanksgiving Dinner for the Homeless (2009-2016); Big Sunday Day of Service, Los Angeles (2009-2016); USPS Letters to Santa Program (2007-2016); Portland Whales Lacrosse Cancer Fundraiser (2014-2016); volunteer youth lacrosse coaching (2014-2016). I feel a strong sense of obligation to share my blessings and give back to those in need as well as growing the game of lacrosse.
