Personal Statement

My name is Riley Erickson and I’m currently a senior at Desert Vista High School in Phoenix, AZ. I’m a 3 sport Varsity athlete, including football, soccer, and baseball. I’m strong physically and mentally, and my competitive nature pushes me to excel in all aspects of my life. I currently have a 4.27 weighted GPA and believe that my academic success is as important as my athletic efforts. I value team sports and I recognize that it teaches me how to communicate well with others. I’ve gained both leadership and time management skills from my involvement in sports. I learn quickly and respect my coaches and feel that I am an athlete that coaches will enjoy training. I have a strong work ethic, am very level headed, and will represent my team well. I am ready for the challenge of playing at the next level, and am looking for a university and football program where I can contribute, and that can help me reach my highest potential as both an athlete and student.
