2017/2018 Varsity Letter
Because I have wrestled since I was 6. I can't imagine the day I every have to stop doing what I love. Since I was a young child I have loved collegiate wrestling and dreamed of being there someday myself. I believe that I have the work ethic and sport aptitude to be a wrestler at the collegiate level. School is an important part of my future plans and goals and I am very much excited to begin my college life.
I've learned that being a leader isn't the same as being the best. Being a leader means being a positive example and role model. In my high school wrestling room, summer practices are open to everyone. I am the only wrestler who, despite having a busy summer schedule, have been there every week. It was my goal to show others that you can be good at wrestling, or you can be great, but you can't be great if you don't work hard. I lead by example to others so hopefully they follow my example and start coming to practices too.
I am always trying to be faster, stronger, more technical and smarter about my athletic performance. The way for me to do that is to exercise, eat well, sleep right and just be conscience about my overall health and welfare both mentally and physically. By taking care of myself, I can improve my athletic performance.
When I have a chance, I volunteer time to help with youth wrestling in our youth wrestling program. It's incredibly important that I give back to the sport and help when I can. It's important to me because I remember many instances where older wrestlers made a big impact on me and i remember the influence it had on me and my view of the sport.
