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

I am supposed to say it is all about continuing to develop my leadership potential. To some extent that's true. I also look forward to being an integral part of a team and making the lifelong friendships that come with the dedication to a goal. But college is expensive and a scholarship if it's possible is also important to me. I hope sports can be a way for me to have a place at the college that's the best possible academic fit.

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

I was asked to be the starting quarterback on my varsity football team. It was only my second season of playing football, ever. Physically I knew I would be fine. I'm large. But I knew I would need to lead my team in a way that I hadn't done before. That experience of learning to lead on the football field was an important one for me.

I attend an academically rigorous boarding school. This and traveling with my family has given me a lot of maturity. I try to be very involved in school, even though my athletic schedule can make it challenging. I've served in student government and during my senior year will be a prefect. The role of prefect in a boarding school is an important one. It will be my job to see that things go smoothly in the dorms. I will also be a mentor to younger students who may struggle to adjust to being away from home. I like this role and think I am a natural mentor.

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

I drink lots of spinach smoothies (1/2 lb of spinach, 1 banana, 1 apple, 1/3 lemon, 25 ounces of water).

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

I've travelled to a lot of places where there is a lot of poverty. It's shaped who I am as a person. Seeing that type of poverty: kids bathing in muddy stream water in Haiti, street children living under overpasses in the Philippines, and kids too poor to afford shoes in the Dominican Republic, has given me a passion to make the world a better place for everyone. In Manila I spent time volunteering at an orphanage for abandoned elderly people and children. This wasn't with any kind of organized group. Instead it was just my mom and I trying to make life a little bit better for people who have very little.
