Personal Statement

Dear Coach,

   I am a 6”1” junior running back/receiver at Newport Harbor High School (CA) who is looking to continue my education and athletic success in college. I have been working very hard to achieve this dream since I was 2 years old, hearing stories of when my dad played in college at the University of Wyoming.


            On the football field, I have had lots of success, scoring four touchdowns and rushing for 973 yards in just six starts last season for my varsity team. I achieved All-Sunset League honors, and was named to the All Area Dream team. In the classroom, I am even more successful, boasting a 4.1 GPA, and earning the 4.0 or above honor roll, last year, while playing 3 sports (Volleyball and Basketball).





        However my true self worth is not defined only by my football and educational success; rather I am defined by my leadership skills, which do not always show up on the stat sheet. Last season, I was not only able to guide my team to the playoffs, which started 1-3 before I got the chance to start, but I also earned enough respect from the seniors to give the pregame playoff speech…no non-senior has ever given any pregame speech, let alone for a playoff game. I also have become a leader in my city, as I am part of the Youth City Council, and I am a frequent leader in my church, as I am 1 of 2 youths selected to represent my parish in a countywide leadership conference.


            I see myself playing football for an institution that prides itself on athletics and on education. I want to continue my career as a student-athlete and leader, and I want to keep on improving in these skills. I know that college football will provide this for me, after watching my brother play college football for the University of Wyoming.
