My name is Kaitlyn Darrené Hopkins. I am a 6 foot 2 senior, weighing 185 pounds. I love the sport of basketball. I've been playing for ten consecutive years and consider my self to be a fairly good player. However, I have a lot to learn and am very willing! Being a "big girl" I was always playing the forward/center position. I practice my dribbling and shooting skills everyday, because I know that when I get to college, my days of being one of the biggest people on the team may just be over! So I want to be prepared for that, but at the same time I love my position! I am a team player! I like to encourage my team in even the worse situations, because teams win games; not the player her self. I also am a hard worker. If you tell me I need to work on something or improve in a certain area; I am all for it. I will do my best to meet your expectations and surpass pass them. This year, along with my freshman, sophomore, juniors years, I hold a starting position. I am the high scorer of our team (for 3 consecutive years) and hold highest rebound total. I just truly love the game! As do I my academics. Currently I have a 4.0 and am at the top of my class. My goal is to play college basketball, and use my skill to go to a school where I can further my intelligence to excel in life. I want to become a pediatrician, so a school with a medical or science related major is great. Furthermore, I'm open to any type of college. I want to go to a college that has a purpose for me. So I can grow and learn more about the game of basketball. I know playing as a freshman isn't always the case in some schools. But I'll continue to work hard no matter the playing time! I am a good team player and I can't wait to go to a college that's willing to let me show that.
