Personal Highlights

For the past four years at South Plantation I have been class officer and SGA officer, I have over 900 service hours, I started on the O-Line and D Line, and long snap as a Freshman. I was a team Captain this past season,I have been selected for the Broward County Senior All Star game, I am I am the 3 time defensive captain for lacrosse, Iron man award recipient,and homecoming court nominee, I was voted Knight's King in 2017.
For the class of 2019 I am the only athlete to start and play in every football game in 4 years!

As you can tell by my video, I play with an attitude. I don't make excuses and I show up for workouts, practice, film, and what ever else my team asks of me. I am all in.

Additional Questions:
Why do you want to be recruited to play sports in college?

I want an excellent education! I enjoy being part of something bigger than myself. I would love to be part of an amazing college tradition and experience.

Athletes are often leaders on and off the field. Please provide one example of how you have demonstrated leadership in both areas.

Leading comes natural to me.On the field I am the largest person on the field and naturally draw attention. I lead by keeping a positive attitude with my teammates and coaches. I never give up or give in. Being a big guy I'm not always leading in front of running drills, but I never ask to come out, I never offer excuses when I make mistakes, and I never blame others when things go wrong. I refuse disrespectful behavior towards my coaches even if it comes from the all-stars! Off the field I expect the same thing from my friends and peers.
My best example comes from when a star player lost his cool and was letting his emotions get the better of him. Despite the coaches warning the player to stop he continued. I was able to intervene and redirect his anger before it got worse.

Please explain how you pursue "healthy athletic performance" as a student-athlete.

Being a large bodied athlete I have to make sure my body and mind are right. South Florida is very humid and hot and one could easily overwork themselves. I follow the coaches work outs and our trainers recommendations to remain flexible and hydrated. In the off season I wrestle and play lacrosse, and when I am not doing those things I use a personal trainer. On the academics side I use a daily planner to help keep track of deadlines and obligations. I love math and enjoy school so keeping up with studies isn't too difficult for me.

Please describe how you are involved in service in your community and why these efforts are important to you.

I am in involved in the community in multiple ways. I volunteer as an assistant coach for the local youth lacrosse program. I have been officer with the Key Club of South Plantation for 3 years and we are involved in everything form raising money, to clothing donations, to books, and reading glasses. I have personally chaired several of these events. I am also the a class officer at SPHS. I am involved in raising money for the class as well as over seeing membership, compliance of school policies, and prom and Grad Bash. I am an SGA officer as well. I am responsible for school spirit and activities as well as charitable events like Honor Flight and Virtual Honor Flight which I chaired, Trunk or Treat, and other various events. My pride and joy is being involved with Honor Flight as my grandfather is a Marine.
