I am a three sport athlete and an honors student with a 3.70 GPA, and I understand the value of hard work on and off the court and field. I have started every high school game in each of my sports and I have never missed a game due to injury. I am a competitor and a team player, and my coaches tell me I am very coachable. I am 6'4" tall and 215 pounds as a freshman and I have a lot of growing to do.
I LOVE sports. I am competitive and like being a part of a team. I feel like I am my best self when I am physically active and many of my happiest memories have been with my teammates. I want to play at the next level and I want to work in a field that allows me to stay connected to sports. I studied sports medicine in high school and want to continue working in the medical field. I would also like to earn some scholarship money to help pay for my education and reduce the financial burden on my family.
I have been the team captain on a number of teams. I try to lead by example and balance hard work with relationship building and fun. I work to encourage younger players, help them with their skills, and focus on building their confidence. My academics are strong so I also tutor other players and help them be strong student athletes.
I work hard to take care of my body by eating right, getting enough sleep, hitting the gym, and getting in some extra practice time. I also work to have balance in my life between athletics, academics, friends, and family. I perform better on the court/field when I am taking care of all areas of my life. It allows me to stay physically strong, and mentally focused.
We volunteer as a team to feed the homeless in our community. It feels good to help others and also helps me keep perspective on my own problems.
