Division II Northeast Ohio - All District 1st Team
I’m in my freshman year at Cuyahoga Valley Christian Academy in Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio. I will graduate in the spring of 2023. I’m a multi - sport athlete that loves to compete at a high level in golf, basketball, soccer, and track. I consider myself a natural leader that strives to bring out the best in myself and my teammates. I possess a strong inner desire to succeed and be the best I can in the classroom and on the athletic field. Please keep me in mind for your recruiting class of 2023. I’m confident I possess the qualities your looking for in a student - athlete. I’d like the opportunity to discuss the possibility of becoming a member of your school and team in the future. If there is anything I can do to help you decide if I’m a good fit, please let me know.
-Multi-sport athlete (basketball, golf, track, soccer)
Only 7% of all high school athletes will get to experience the life changing experience of college athletics. The opportunity to play in college is a blessing not everyone will get. If given the opportunity to play in college I will take full advantage of it. Many high school athletes take playing sports for granted. It would be great to extend my playing career another 4-5 years while receiving a quality education.
Since a young age I have had the passion and drive to compete and play multiple sports ( golf, basketball, soccer, track) at a high level. I realize passion alone will not land me a college roster spot. Passion, with a relentless commitment to doing what it takes on and off the athletic field is what will get me recruited to play sports in college.
I realize that being a student athlete will be an experience full of sacrifices. Time will be consumed with studies, practices, games, conditioning/weightlifting, and study tables.
Being a college athlete will instill in me lifelong skills and lessons. Teamwork, time management, selflessness, and leadership skills will last a lifetime. All of these life lessons and skills will better prepare me for the world after college and the rest of my life.
I've always been a leader by example both on and off the athletic field. I'm continually evaluating how my coaches, teachers, classmates, and teammates view me and whether or not my actions and character directly line up with my words. I believe the more you focus on leading by example the more your teammates /classmates will follow in your footsteps
As a leader I attempt to outwork other people to the point of it being noticeable by those around me. It takes a lot of effort to earn leadership status on and off the playing field. I focus on leading by example and strive to be the best every class session, workout, practice, or game through my work ethic. I'm not the type pf player or student that everything come easy for and I accept that, it just means when I do reach my goals and I do outcompete my teammates and peers I'm confident in knowing that I genuinely earned it.
It's all about balance. You have to be balanced spiritually, physically, and mentally.
The ability to find a healthy balance between being a well-rounded student and athlete will help both in academic terms and the athletic side of things too.
Being in balance may mean something different to each individual. For me, having a balance in my life means creating time for the things I have to do, as well as the things I like to do.
Eating healthy and finding time to do physical exercise on a regular basis creates physical balance in our bodies. Adequate rest and sleep are also necessary for our bodies to rejuvenate and feel refreshed so we are able to take on daily activities.
In college passing tests, completing assignments, and succeeding in the classroom dictates overall progression so school should be the priority.
Time is one of the most valuable things you can give of yourself to another person or cause. It’s easy to get caught up in our own little world and focus all of our time and energy on what we need to get done in order to accomplish our personal goals. However, I believe caring leaders make time in their schedules to help with causes that may not directly benefit them in the long run.
My High School (CVCA) has a service expectation. We are encouraged to find appropriate service opportunities. During the summer and throughout basketball season our team volunteers time with special needs children. During this time we played basketball and various other games / sport with the children. Special needs kids often don’t play team (or even individual) sports at school, so they aren’t given the opportunity to get to know people of all abilities over the fun of playing a game.
This experience has taught me that anyone can meet another persons need for friendship, understanding, and compassion. The experience provides me an opportunity for self-growth and a unique insight into the obstacles those with special needs must overcome daily. Serving a population that many people don’t understand has enabled me to see the world through a different set of eyes. Now, I know firsthand that every family is walking a different journey and we all need to open ourselves and minds to people of all abilities
