As the head Girl’s Basketball Coach at Denton High School, I am pleased to write this letter of recommendation for Dalissa Gaines.
I have known Dalissa as a member of my basketball team at Denton High School since taking the position in June of 2006. During this time, I have come to appreciate her many fine qualities as I have watched her grow as a player and a person. Dalissa had a very strong junior year as she was named our District 4-5A “6th Person of The Year.” She averaged 6 pts and 4.5 rebounds per game while being a defensive force in the middle for a team that allowed only 29 points/game in District play.
Dalissa has spent the off-season working on her weaknesses. She has improved her footwork in the post area and finishes well. She worked hard getting stronger and has greatly improved her quickness. She has soft hands and nice touch from fifteen feet. She is comfortable posting up or facing the basket. I expect that she will be one of the premier post players in our area.
Dalissa is not only a fine player, but is also an outstanding individual. She excels in the classroom and is looked upon for her leadership. She understands the value of goal setting and the importance of team work. She has shown the ability to bounce back from adversity and is willing to put in extra time to improve on weaknesses. She realizes that success can only be obtained through hard work and approaching each task with a positive attitude. Please feel free to contact me if I can be of further assistance.
