2017 INLC 7-8th All-Star Game
Ever since I began playing the game I have been in love with the sport of lacrosse. I have worked hard and will continue in order to keep playing, and I feel like playing in college is something that I find inevitable. Attending a university is a major part of my plans for the future, and to be able to play at such a high level is an unmatched opportunity.
On the field, I try to be a role model for my team. If you can pick your team up, you have to hold them tight or you’ll drop them. I feel like I have held very tight to my teammates.
Off the field, I am always trying to be a positive influence while still working with things I am passoinate about. I recently finished a research project with two of my fellow peers. In this, we created a test that, theoretically, could diagnose Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy (CTE).
Health is a very important part of being an athlete, and I take it very seriously. I am constantly moving, working and competing to keep myself in shape and ready. I also eat an organic and gluten-free diet that consists of decreased sugar. I am always trying to keep my body in top gear.
Another critical part of health is “mental health”. I try to keep my mind sharp with challenges and problems that will help keep the balance between my mind and body. I am a very intelligent person, and I won’t stop sharpening the sword.
Everyone wants to make a difference, and I feel that I am doing just that. Along with service projects at local parkas and businesses, I look to make an impact across our national and global community. I hope to one day do lacrosse camps around the globe to help get young people involved in athletics, something that can change a persons life.
