My name is Max Hautala and I'm class of 2017 at Justin Siena HS in Napa, CA. I'm a multi-sport athlete with a great work ethic on and off the field. Justin Siena is a private Catholic high school with a rigorous curriculum. My current simple GPA is 3.7 but I have taken 2-3 AP courses per year so my weighted GPA is around 3.9. I took the SAT in early March and I will post the results when I receive them.
A couple of years ago I picked up a lacrosse stick and I couldn't seem to put it down. After three years of high school varsity lacrosse I'm drawn to the game for different reasons. Lacrosse requires a combination of strength, speed, agility and finesse. It's also a game that requires a great deal of thought. I receive regular praise from my coaches for being a team player who can think on my feet and make good decisions. Over the years I have played several sports at many levels from youth to HS Varsity and no moment is too big. Having played quarterback and linebacker for 10 years I understand the importance of being calm under pressure.
My immediate goals are to work hard in the weight room, to develop my off hand and to improve my game at both ends of the field. I'd like to get better with every game, every practice, every play and one day I hope to earn the privilege of playing college lacrosse.
Thank you for your consideration,
