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

I love the game of basketball. It is and would be very fulfilling to play on a college level and beyond. Therefore, my desire is to be recruited to play and to receive a college degree.

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

A few of my highlights off the field are: Palmetto Boys State Delegate June 2019
Honor Student - English I-III, Algebra I-II, French I & III, Digital Literacy. I also volunteered with the Special Olympics with a few of my teammates and I assist/mentor my younger brother's basketball team.

On Field:
2018-2019 - All Tournament at London Dribble Drive Challenge in Kentucky; The Most Improved Player Award; Earned 2nd Athletic Letter
2017-2018 - Ranked 30th in the Midlands, SC & Earned an Athletic Letter

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

I pursue "healthy athletic performance" by eating and drinking right, reducing the amount of fatty foods and unhealthy items. I also get my rest, work-out daily, and get regularly scheduled medical, dental, and eye check-ups.

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

Below describes how I was involved in my community. These efforts are important to me because I enjoy helping others and being a part of positive things. I also meet and interact with people.
