Personal Statement

April 2014 - RECEIVED OFFER FROM UNITED STATES NAVAL ACADEMY

February 2014 - RECEIVED OFFERS FROM UNITED STATES AIR FORCE ACADEMY, WESTERN MICHIGAN UNIVERSITY AND ILLINOIS STATE UNIVERSITY.

JUNE 2013 - RECEIVED OFFER FROM UNITED STATES MILITARY ACADEMY (WEST POINT).

This past season as a junior, I was a 2-way varsity starter, playing DE and OT.  I was named ALL-STATE HONORABLE MENTION (same as 2nd Team) OT for Division 5A.  I was also named 1ST TEAM ALL-CONFERENCE DE AND OT.  As a result of my All-Conference status and because of my current cumulative GPA, I was named to the 2013 Illinois High School Football Coaches Association Academic All-State Team for Division 5A.

This summer I was named the 2013 Defensive Lineman MVP at the Illinois Big Man Camp. I also received the Adidas All-In Invite to the 2014 US Army National Combine in San Antonio, TX, in connection with the US Army All-American Bowl week at the Alamodome.  This top award was based on my performance at the Football University camp in Chicago, IL, on June 14-16, 2013, which was attended by some 300 athletes.

Last year as a sophomore, I was a 2-way varsity starter, playing DE, OT and TE.  I was named 1ST TEAM ALL-CONFERENCE DE and 2ND TEAM ALL-CONFERENCE OT.  As a result of being named 1st Team All-Conference DE and because of my current cumulative GPA, I was named to the 2012 Illinois High School Football Coaches Association Academic All-State Team for Division 5A. I also received a 2012 Belleville News-Democrat Large School (5A-8A) All-Area Football Team Honorable Mention as both Defensive and Offensive Lineman.

As a freshman, I was a starting member of the varsity, JV and freshman football teams, starting both ways on the JV and freshman teams and earning my varsity letter. I was named a 2012 Eastbay Youth All-American. I have earned an invitation to Football University (FBU) Top Gun invitation-only camp 2010, 2011 and 2012.

I am a 2-time wrestling state qualifier, placing 1st in the 2013 IHSA Wrestling Regionals and 3rd in the 2013 IHSA Wrestling Sectionals in the 220 lbs. division.  I earned my varsity letter in wrestling as a freshman by being a state qualifier after placing 1st in the 2012 IHSA Wrestling Regionals and 4th in the 2012 IHSA Wrestling Sectionals in the 220 lbs. division, and in so doing, I was named "Athlete of the Week" by the St. Louis Post-Dispatch and earned an Honorable Mention on the Belleville News Democrat All-Area Wrestling Team. I placed 2nd in the State in the 215 lb. weight class at the IKWF State Tournament in March 2011 after placing 1st in Regionals and 1st in Sectionals.

I was inducted into the National Honor Society this year and was recently named to the Principal's Advisory Committee.  I play trumpet and serve as a bugler at military funerals, playing Taps. My high school athletic goals include: 1) being recruited to a college football program; 2) being named to the US Army All-American Bowl in 2015; and 3) winning the wrestling state championship. My academic goal is to maintain Honor Roll status while striving to achieve a minimum 5.0 cumulative GPA.
