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

I would like to be recruited to play collegiate level sports because the aid of a scholarship could help me get into a better school which I could not otherwise afford, and also lessen the burden of student loans post-graduation. In addition, my love for playing football drives me to play the game for as long as I can to the best of my abilities.

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

Off of the gridiron I work to maintain and improve Wayne Valley High School. I was elected Vice President of the freshman grade in my first and only year at Wayne Valley. In the classroom I am an academic leader, taking Honors English and History, and taking Enriched Geometry and Enriched Chemistry (Sophomore level classes) as a Freshman. Outside of the classroom I have been a Boy Scout for multiple years.

It was a few years ago, we, the Panthers, were tied against Totowa, and they had possession late in the fourth quarter, looking to score and win the game. Defensively, we needed to get a stop to give our offense a chance to drive down field and put up a touchdown. I was a seventh grader on an eighth grade team, and I held a leadership position. Our coach hand-signaled in the play from the sideline. I rallied a huddle and called the play. I was on a blitz, the fate of the game potentially rested on this play. At the snap of the ball I flew past the tackle and lined up one on one with the quarterback. Poised to make a throw the quarterback lifted his arm up to fling the ball downfield, causing me to jump up and attempt to swat the pass. The only issue being he never released the ball and just faked the pass, allowing him to scamper past for another 10 yards. Our defensive coordinator burned our final timeout and the defense circled around him. He told us, “Ok we need to play it safe here and just try to hold them out of the endzone we’re playing for the tie now.” Infuriated by my blown opportunity and with our chances of victory dwindling I yelled back, “No let me go!” He was tentative to send me on another blitz, as I ruined the last one. I asked, “Can you get there?” and of course with full confidence I said yes. He conceded and granted me another opportunity, and I relayed the play to the rest of the defense. With the focus on me, I crept toward the line of scrimmage, as the opposing quarterback called his cadence. At the snap of the ball i blew past the lineman and found myself alone with the quarterback again. This time he stepped up in the pocket, trying to out maneuver me, nonetheless I dropped him with a punishing hit. Totowa called their final timeout, and I popped up off the turf in tears, not tears of pain, or sadness, but of just pure emotion and joy. That sack ended up forcing them to punt, allowing our offense to drive down field and punch in the game winning touchdown. At this moment I came out of my shell, and instead of dealing with my failure, I refused to give up, and took control of my fate, and the fate of my team.

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

As a student athlete I pursue healthy athletic performance by exercising frequently with and without my football team. Three days a week I weight-train with my football team, and the two weekdays I don't I run and lift with my lacrosse team. Multiple days a week I work on my speed, strength, and agility with Parisi Speed School, as well as workout on my own.

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

I am involved in community service with my High School, as Vice President of the Freshman class, the student government often stays after school to set up school events. As a Freshman I haven't had much opportunity to serve my community but I understand the value of public service and plan to coach and referee youth sports this summer.
