Personal Highlights

I am proud that I have greatly improved in the classroom; freshman and sophomore year I earned a 3.17 GPA, but my Junior year I earned a 3.77 GPA. I interviewed for and earned a spot as a 'Big Brother' at Saint Ignatius, where I have a 6th grade 'little brother' on campus with me all senior year. I have improved greatly in my track career throughout high school. I have become a much better brother and son to my immediate family.

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

I've been in love with running since I was born. Every recess and gym class since kindergarten, I organized races to compete with other kids. I want to continue to run in college because I love it and it can help me get into to schools that I've dreamed of going to since I was a little kid. It also seems like an easy way to make friends with people that share a passion for running in college.

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

I lead stretches during warmups before practice and I always introduce myself to new runners that seem nervous, confused, or lonely, because I've been in their position before. I do my best to be the leader that I wanted as a nervous, small freshman. I am comforting to my teammates at practice but I also push them to work hard and get the most out of every practice, even if they think it seems useless. Off the track, I lead by showing up to the weight room and staying late to clean up and help coaches. I say hello to track athletes that I see in the halls and try to make their day a little better.

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

I pursue a healthy athletic performance as a student athlete by being organized and taking time to make the right decisions for my health. I stay organized with the balance of school and sports so that I can focus 100% on each one. In my family, school comes first then we can focus on sports. For my personal health, I pray everyday and before every competition so that I can stay calm and never feel lonely.

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

Service is one of the most important things in my high school life. My favorite thing about Saint Ignatius High School is that there are so many different service opportunities. Everyone who knows me knows that I love doing service and being a man for others. I am not only very active with service in the community of Saint Ignatius but also in my youth group known as YOSA (Youth of Saint Angela). I am a leader of YOSA and I go to every event that they have that I can possibly attend. YOSA has meetings and service opportunities every week. We also have retreats and immersions every year. Growing up, my Dad volunteered me and my family to do service anywhere he saw the chance in Cleveland. We did most of our service through Saint Malachi, my small, Catholic parish in downtown Cleveland. Participating in service makes me feel like a good person because I love connecting with new people and putting smiles on their faces. Even during Covid-19 I was able to do a three day immersion service trip with my youth group, where we helped five different non-profit organizations.
