|Primary Position||Shooting Guard|
Was a Captain for our basketball team my junior year and going into my senior year
I want to be recruited to play basketball in college because I love the sport. I have played basketball ever since I was little with my brothers and I have always loved it. I know that college is a lot different than high school but if I didn't play basketball I know I would miss it more than anything so I want to take playing basketball to a new level. I also want to make new friendships with my teammates with whatever college I go to. I want to have that new experience and see what it feels like.
I try to be a leader everywhere I go. When I am playing the sports I play I try to be as helpful as i can and make sure our team is in a good mood. As a team captain or not I still try to make a difference and help out everyone. Off the court or field I try to be a leader at school. For example, in class someone will be having a hard time in class and I notice I try to help them understand what is going on more and help with whatever they need and other people start helping others. Another example is I don't mess around in class and I'm always trying to set a good example for my fellow classmates.
I make sure that I go to bed at a good time every night and I eat healthier foods. A big thing for me is before every game I stretch. I have pulled muscles in different places like my lower back and my abdominal muscle and i had a bunch of micro tears in my left quad. Going through those experiences made me realize that stretching is way more important than anything before a game.
In my community I try to get involved with most things. For insistence, I ran a 5k for Will to Live and I help out at everything I can. Will to Live is a charity for people with cancer. They are important to me because I like to help and make a difference in the community.
