Personal Highlights

Eagle Scout, earned 2020
2020/2021 Barrington High School Athletic Leadership Council

Additional Questions:
Why do you want to be recruited to play sports in college?
-
Athletes are often leaders on and off the field. Please provide one example of how you have demonstrated leadership in both areas.

Within our cross country and track team I provide leadership by being selected as the Distance Runners representative to Barrington High School's Athletics Leadership Council for the 2020/2021 school year. In this role I will provide updates to the council as well as bring to the squad information to ensure athletes at the high school have a consistent and fulfilling athletic experience.

Outside of athletics I provide leadership via the Boy Scouts. I recently earned the rank of Eagle Scout. As a member and leader within the troop, one of the leadership positions I held was Troop Guide for the Personal Fitness merit badge. In this role, I supported younger scouts in the merit badge requirements and organized multiple fitness sessions to accomplish the requirements of the merit badge.

Please explain how you pursue "healthy athletic performance" as a student-athlete.
-
Please describe how you are involved in service in your community and why these efforts are important to you.

I am active in giving back to my community by actively participating in the organizations who help me. I recently earned the rank of Eagle Scout within the Boy Scout organization. One of the key requirements is a service project. The project I planned and completed was for one of the preschools in our school district. https://www.dailyherald.com/news/20201001/one-barrington-family-two-eagle-scouts

In addition to local Boy Scout activities, I have volunteered as a camp counselor benefiting children in the community focusing on Safety in the community.
