I am the student-athlete that you are looking for who is a leader both on and off the field. I possess the academic strength needed to succeed in college with a GPA of 3.9 (when my freshmen grades are included) with mostly honors and advanced placement courses. My goal is to major in business and hope to someday run my own company as both my father, uncle, and grandfathers have done. I intend to be the fourth generation of Berns men to graduate from college.
I am fortunate to attend a small, rural school where I have gotten a chance to have a lot of playing time in a variety of positions. My junior year, I was the second leading rusher in our conference even though my team did not have any post season play. Offensively, I played both quarterback and running back, sometimes even switching positions each down, and finished the season with an average of 5.8 yards a carry and almost 1000 yards. Defensively, I am a middle linebacker and am never hesitant to throw myself at my opponent. I have the football skills to be able play the positions that my team needs from me each minute of the game. I am interested in learning how and developing into the player that you need. I enjoy and work hard every second that I am on the playing field, as any of my football or baseball coaches can attest, and I can guarantee that I will do the same for any team that I play for in college.
