The AAU stats currently posted represent play as a 9th grader playing in 10th and 11th grade divisions.
I would like to be recruited to play in college because basketball is a passion of mine. I want to keep playing and take my skills to the next level. Playing in college is a dream of mine. I will work to get there. I understand that playing in college is a big time commitment and I am willing to balance the school work with the practice and game schedule.
I am a leader on the court and field in my communication with my teammates, doing my best to ensure that everybody is included, and an ability to take charge when nobody else is. Off the field I am a leader because I like to demonstrate good character for everybody to see, and show that nobody is different. Kindness and fairness is key, and these two thing will take you far in life.
I pursue a healthy athletic performance by managing my time well with school work. I try to plan ahead with my classes to see how much time I need to do my work, then work that into my schedule around everything else for that day. To also pursue a healthy athletic performance I eat right and get plenty of sleep. Eating right keeps the body healthy, giving you all of the key nutrients you need, and sleep is your recovery time, so you get rest before your activity for they next day.
I am big in supporting athletes. In addition to working the summer basketball camp at my high school, I volunteer at the swim finish at triathlons and have been doing this since I was five years old. I also enjoy volunteering outside of sports. I volunteer part of my Thanksgiving every year helping with the Bea Gaddy's Foundation. This organization gives free meals to the less fortunate/those who need it. Wednesday nights I volunteer to help sort the canned food for deliveries the next day, this usually takes us up to the time they need to close the family center for the night. Then on Thursday (Thanksgiving), we go down in the morning to help finish sorting the cans, deliver food to a church to hand out for meals, and we deliver an assortment of goods to shelters or homes who need the food. I have just recently started participating in another service project on Valentines Day making flower arrangements and delivering them to senior living centers, along with cards made by kids in the church. Doing this makes them feel good because a lot of them don't get any visitors, so getting a visit from a complete stranger and having a nice conversation makes their day. I love seeing it when someone who doesn't have much is happy from something that I did.
