Sports do not build character they reveal it. I started playing pee wee Football since I was seven, and as soon as I put on those pads, there was no going back. Football is more than a passion for me, it’s a way of life. Now as a senior and four-year varsity letterman looking to go to college, I want to pursue football on a collegiate level.
During my school years I have participated in other sports, including swimming, lacrosse, basketball and track. In track this year I broke our school record in the 100 meter, was the fastest junior in the State of Maine, and took 3rd place at Nationals running the 4th leg of the 400 meter relay in Philadelphia at Penn University.
Playing football and competing in sports has taught me to be a leader, to be humble, and to push my self further every time I step on the field. To me it is more than a game, it is an honor and a privilege.
Football has shaped my character over the years to be loyal, tenacious, strong, courageous, and above all grateful. These lessons I have carried into life with family, friends and academics. It has taught me not to give up. My goals throughout high school were to stay on the honor roll, play varsity football and track, and inspire younger players to do the same. I have been fortunate enough to accomplish these, as well as things I never expected.
I would be an asset to a college football team, athletically and academically. From practice to game day, I step onto that field to bring everything I have. I truly believe if you want something bad enough, you will achieve it through hard work, determination and passion.
Football is my passion, committed to giving everything I have as a valued player to my teammates, coaches and the honor of the school I represent. I would like to reveal what I can do for your team.
