2017 Junior Varsity Team Captain
2017 Carthage College Volleyball Camp
I am a competitive player that truly enjoys playing the sport of volleyball. As an athlete I feel it helps keep my mind and body always in tune and performing at its best. I am goal oriented and succeed by putting all of my effort towards my wants. By playing the sport I love, to the best of my ability, and striving to earn the academic degree that I want to achieve, I feel being a student athlete goes hand in hand.
I feel I am a leader both on the field and off. I really try to rally the team and motivate us to work together. By remaining positive and enthusiastic the energy is contagious. Because of this I was elected as team Captain. Off the field I am very active in my community, as stated above, having earned the rank of Eagle Scout at the young age of 14. I continue to lead and give back to the community in various aspects. I currently help assist with a local Explorer program based out of Somers Fire Department and help in any capacity I can.
Healthy athletic performance is not just playing on the court. I have a personal trainer that works me daily on a physical fitness and nutritional program that is helping me to hit harder and jump higher. I also feel that my high academic level helps to challenge me mentally and create a healthy mind which assists all aspects of my life and achievements.
Being involved in the community is very important to me. I have attained the rank of Eagle Scout within the Boy Scouts of America, which is the highest rank attainable. I had to complete a large service project based in the community, as well as many other smaller projects along the way, in order to achieve this award. I continue to give back to younger Scouts in our area by being a youth leader. I am also a board-member of a local University outreach program that awards scholarship money to youth led projects within the community.
