I am a junior long snapper at Davenport (IA) Assumption High School. I am a multi-sport athlete who just took up long snapping as a freshman. After getting brought up to the varsity team as a sophomore, and receiving encouragement from my coaches to get into camps and pursue this beyond high school, I got involved with Kohl’s Specialists Camps this past spring. Besides attending training camps and showcase events, I have received invitations to compete in Kohl's National Scholarship Camp in Tennessee in the summer of 2020 and their very elite National Underclassmen Challenge in Miami in January 2021, and finished in the top 15 in both events in my class. Kohl's currently rates me a 4.5 star recruit (out of 5) and ranks me the #25 long snapper in the country in my class.
In the classroom, I am a 4.0 student through six semesters, and scored a 24 on the ACT in April. In addition to athletics, I am involved in Fellowship of Christian Athletes. I am also a member of the National Honor Society, and was named Academic All-District.
As I mentioned above, I am a multi-sport athlete, playing football and baseball. On the football field, I am also a free safety and a wide receiver. After seeing my potential as a long snapper, I decided to not play basketball this winter, and instead spend that time committed to adding strength and size to my now 6’0”, 185 pound frame and continue to explore camp options with Kohl’s schedule. My punt snap times have dropped from upper .7s last summer to now .68, and continue to improve at every camp I attend. I finished a perfect 52/52 on short snaps and 16/16 on long snaps this fall, and my team had an 8-1 record, winning a district championship.
My goals, outside of sports, for the remainder of high school are as follows: continue to receive straight A’s, achieve the best ACT/SAT scores I can, start to realize my academic/career interests, and continue to grow in my faith and in my relationships with others.
I am wanting to continue playing the sport I love at the college level. I am confident, with my work ethic, ability to take coaching, attention to detail, and desire to be the best, that I will be an asset to your program. I believe that I could play at any level. Thank you for your consideration.
