I’m shelby and I have played fieldhockey for 5 years and I have fallen in love with the game. When people ask who was your first love my answer is always fieldhockey. I love being a student athlete because is gives me drive in the class room to be a better student. Playing sports is a privilege that not everybody gets to have and I love that I can play fieldhockey. Playing makes bad days good days. I balance school, fieldhockey, and work and everyday I end up talking about how much love I have for the sport.
I have grown to be a very mature person and I have to thank fieldhockey for that. It taught me leadership and working with other people. Fieldhockey taught me that academics is important and I have managed to keep a 3.5gpa since I have entered high school.
Fieldhockey has shaped me to be who I want to be. I’m no longer scared to speak my mind because I’m fieldhockey you do have to be able to talk about what your strengths and weakness are and you have to always be ready to help whoever wants to step on the field.
