Sports became part of my life when I turned 3 years old and started playing tee ball. As much as I love the sport, I love being part of a team. I've experienced friendships and leadership skills that I might not have developed without the game and being part of a team. Being a leader on the field led me to run for various officer positions in school clubs. My teachers and coaches often comment on my ability to command respect among kids younger and older than myself, both on and off the field.
Being a three-sport athletic has pushed me to keep in shape all year and excel with different team dynamics. I have been fortunate enough to be part of amazing youth, travel and school teams. My travel team was runner up on the World Series. Being a left-handed pitcher has set me apart and I often go in during clutch moments. In football, I started on my varsity team as a freshman. I played both offense and defense and earn a spot on the All Region 1st Team. The only player on the team with more tackles was a senior who was MVP.
My ideal program will help me develop the academic path I will take after college while allowing me to be part of a strong team atmosphere. I believe that my athletic talent paired with a strong work ethic, leadership skills and academic goals would help me an immediate asset to your program.
