I've been watching college football ever since I was young and since then, it has always been a dream of mine to play at the college level. I've played since I was about ten years old and don't plan to stop anytime soon. Once high school came, I enjoyed the sport even more. Between my freshman and sophomore year, nearly the entire coaching staff was changed, this was a big adjustment in the play style of the whole team, which resulted in a rough year. Originally, it was difficult to adjust, but it made a much better player and person as it taught me to step up and be a leader when adversity hits. Each year I have had massive improvements, but my biggest gains were between my sophomore and junior year (so far). Not only did I have the opportunity to workout and train more with the new coach's program, but I also attended several leadership conferences that I was selected to go to by my coach. My dedication along with my work ethic has allowed me to become great athlete and leader.
Aside from football, I am in the top 5% of my class grades wise, I am a four sport athlete, and I am involved in much more. I've always worked very hard in school and it has shown as I have a 3.96/4.0 GPA and I am taking a majority of advanced classes. I take honors and AP courses as much as possible in order to challenge myself and prepare myself for college. I am also in a dual enrollment program through Scott Community College which allows me to take dual credit courses so I will graduate high school not only with my diploma, but also with my Associates Degree of Liberal Arts. Throughout my childhood I have tried nearly every sport, and in high school, I had to cut it down to a max of four. In the fall I play football, in the winter I bowl and swim, and in the spring I do track. I have competed at the varsity level for all four, and I have won many awards for each. Along with sports, I am very involved in my community and school. I am involved in student council, National Honors Society, National Society of High School Scholars, a student ambassador program, and I am also a member of a college honors society, Phi Theta Kappa.
All of my athletics, academics, and extra-curricular activities have taught me very valuable lessons and have help me to grow as a young man. I plan to work hard to achieve my dreams of studying and playing athletics at the college level.
