2006 Carlin Cup Player of the Game
. I believe myself to be a natural athlete, excelling in three sports: hockey, football and lacrosse.
I have played defense in hockey since the day I learned to skate. I also play forward when needed. I have a strong passion for playing hockey. This is my fourth year playing varsity hockey. In Peabody I have a great reputation for being extremely tough and setting the pace early. One thing I hold my head high for is that after playing in the Greater Boston League, Divisions 1 & 2 for three years, that I have only been knocked off my skates only three times.
I shoot right handed and I have a wrist and slap-shot to be envied. I was awarded “Player of the Game” for the 2006 Carlin Cup Game and was named “MVP” of the Haverhill Christmas Tournament 2007.
My freshman year in football, I played fullback and linebacker. My first three games I had 6 rushing touchdowns. I wasn’t able to finish the season due to an injury, which also kept me from playing my sophomore year. I returned to football in my senior year and was named a Captain. I played fullback, linebacker and also was the kicker. I broke my wrist half way through the season and was unable to continue to play. I continued to support the team, by attending every practice/meeting and game. I was awarded the “Most Dedicated” at the football banquet.
My junior year had been the first time ever touching a lacrosse stick. I picked up the sport right away and made the varsity team. I play a short-stick defensive midfielder. In all the three sports, I have made the varsity teams and continue to play at that level.
Other than sports, I do a lot of outside and off-season training. Throughout the sports seasons, I lift lightly to maintain myself and to stay in shape. During the off season I begin my arduous lifting schedule and continue with until football begins again. Also, during the summer I have the opportunity to train personally with a top track, Fernando Braz, and become faster and more agile. My average 40 yard dash speed is 4.9 seconds. My max bench is 240 and I can manage 185 for 10-12. I take extremely good care of my body and myself all year long. I eat next to perfect and have never and don’t plan on partaking in the use of drugs of any kind.
School has become one of my top priorities in life. During my first two years in high school I had no direction, guidance or the will do succeed. I didn’t think that I even had a future playing sports or going to college, but I quickly had a change of mind. My junior year I realized that school was important to me and that I needed badly to turn my life around. I have and continue to try harder to improve my GPA and class rank. I made the Honor Roll for the first time in my life. There is nothing I want more then to gain the opportunity to continue my hockey career in college and at the same time create a future in criminal justice for myself.
