Sophomore Year 2018-2019:
I would like to be recruited to play sports in college because I have always been apart of an athletic team in some form since I was five years old. Rowing is a sport really like no other, you can't just pass the ball to one player for the game winning shot; to cross that line in front of everyone else it takes all nine people in the boat doing everything that they can. That's why I enjoy crew so much because I know I can trust everyone in my boat is working hard and doing what they can to make the boat go fast. I believe that rowing positively effects almost everything in my life by taking my mind off certain things and giving me a place to go where I don't have to worry about a bunch of different things.
In the boat, I lead by example. When I am in the boat, I focus and make sure that every stroke I take contribute towards making the boat faster. Everyday after practice, our team does boat talks where we come together as a boat and talk about what went well and what needs to be worked on. During boat talks, I always try to encourage and inspire my teammates to push themselves to work harder, so we can be better as a whole.
I try to pursue "healthy athletic performance" by eating healthy, especially during the fall and spring season, keeping up with training during the winter and summer, and most importantly stretching. During the winter I condition six days a week by erging, lifting, and running. In the summer I primarily lift, so I can put on as much mass as I can before starting the long cardio-filled fall season.
The last two summers I have volunteered for a program my crew team puts on called "Learn to Row." There are two month long sessions, one in June and one in July. The goal of the program is to expose middle school athletes to the sport of rowing to encourage them to try it out. During the first few days of the sessions, I introduce the kids to the different parts of the boats. Also, I show the kids the Concept 2 rowing machines, demonstrating what a rowing stroke looks like, so they can get a feel for what it is like before they get out on the water. After the introduction days, I row with the kids on the water or ride in the launch, helping them get the technique down. This program is important to me because I did the Learn to Row program for three years before joining the crew team at my high school as a freshman. This program is also important to me because the sport of rowing isn't as popular as other sports, so I hope to expose more kids so they can enjoy it as much as I have.
