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

Football is my passion.

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

Off the field, I was elected as senior class representative to student council by my classmates. I was voted 2018 Homecoming King. On the field, I was selected by Nevada High School Coaches as All-State 1st Team Running Back, Most Valuable Player for Nevada Southern Region, and Most Valuable Player for All-Sunrise Conference.

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

My head football coach said this about me to the newspaper: “Thorsten’s not only a player that we rely on offensively, but his work ethic and leadership really sets the tone for our program,” [Head Football Coach Chris] Morelli said. “Players see him out on the field by himself on Saturdays stretching and they want to go prepare with him. He’s a player that does everything the right way. We expect big things from him.”

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

I serve as senior class representative on student council to lead my classmates and give back to them the support they have given me on the football field.
