I got involved in football at the age of 5 playing flag on a local community team. At the time I was obviously new to the sport and it was a quick learning experience for me. I was also playing baseball and doing Tae Kwan Doe. I enjoyed football the most out of all the sports. I decided to continue on with football as my primary sport as I enjoyed it and it quickly helped to build my confidence. Now having played football for nine years I am finding it very rewarding. It has taught me to be part of a team working together to achieve a mutual goal. I have received quite a few rewards for my football accomplishments. I was named offence player of the year last year in the ninth grade. I have also played at the varsity level last year with kids that were 2 to 3 years older than me. I’m a very confident and aggressive style football player. I take coaching to heart and try to do my best to adjust to the different situations that I am asked to play . Earlier this year I was selected as one of the team captains of select team event called the ABC Border Bowl. I was also one of the team captains at the Canadian national flag tournament where our team went undefeated and won the national event. I was also recruited as a starting Tight End for the Canadian Western National Team. I have managed to maintain a 3.5 GPA since Junior High School. My goal is to attend a Div 1 school which will allow me to play my first passion of football and achieve a college degree in sports medicine. I believe I’m a very coachable and passionate athlete. Playing football has instilled confidence in my athleticism and academics and I think I could be a valuable asset to the football team that decides to make me a part of their school.
