What makes me different from other recruits- With regards to my character, I consider myself to be self-motivated, one with a strong work ethic and coachable. As an athlete, my approach to the game is to value practice as much as an “actual” game, to balance praise and criticism, and to maintain a healthy love for the game. I am a student first, then an athlete. I have a joy of learning and exploring many different subjects. Academics and sports have always co-existed in my life, I plan to maintain that balance at the collegiate level.
