My name is Aaron Steinfeldt. I am a 6’5” 215 pound sophomore from Bloomington Indiana. While playing baseball and basketball my whole childhood, I decided to play football for the first time my freshman year. In my first year, I improved to the point that I saw some playing time on the the varsity team, and worked hard to earn a starting position my sophomore year. During my sophomore campaign, I dealt with a broken collarbone in our rivalry game. This forced me to sit out for 5 games, however, this incident helped me learn to make every moment on the field count as well as to have purpose with every move I make. I returned ahead of schedule to help my team by playing in our final two games. Despite missing 5 games, I still managed to be the second leading receiver on my team as well as earn 2nd team All Area honors.
I’ve been blessed with athletic parents (Dad was a D1 football, baseball, and basketball player, and my mom did cheerleading all through high school). They’ve provided me with the opportunities to help me become a successful athlete, as well as a successful person in life. They’ve traveled all around Indiana for me to pursue my goal to one day to be an athlete in college. By vowing to be the hardest working person on the field, I have taken those genetic gifts and given them a multiplicative impact on my performance. As well as playing football at the varsity level, I also play varsity for baseball and basketball for the highest class in our state, and this competitive multisport experience makes me a better and more versatile football player who will be successful at the next level.I became a varsity starter in baseball my freshman year and I am currently the sixth man on the varsity basketball team in my sophomore year.
My goal is to play Division 1 football and I am excited to explore all opportunities. Specific regions I am most interested in exploring are universities in the Midwest (to be close to family), but I am also very interested in the Pacific Northwest. During my 6th grade year my family spent a year in Seattle for work and I enjoyed traveling around that region for baseball and basketball tournaments. I believe that I’ll make an impact to your program, and I will do whatever it takes to be the best football player and student for your university.
