My name is Harrison Unger and I’m in the class of 2021 at Davison High School, in Davison Michigan. In 2019, I made the varsity football team and started every game the entire season at defensive end. I have played football since I was six years-old and I have played many positions both offensively and defensively, however this was my first attempt at defensive end. On the field I pride myself on having good sportsmanship, giving 110% and “playing the game the way it’s supposed to be played”. My outlook for the 2020 season is to build my skills at defensive end and also enhance my abilities at tight end on the offensive side of the ball.
Outside of football I play on a 16U travel baseball team. My primary position is 3rd base, but I’ve played (started) at all infield positions and I also pitch. During the week I work out everyday in my football weight lifting class at school. On Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays I participate in an advanced athletic performance workout which brings in other non-lifting elements. The workout focuses on stamina, cardio, core strength, speed and agility.
I am also focused on my academics and success in the classroom. I take multiple honors classes and I’m working to improve upon my current GPA of 3.5. I work hard to be well-liked and respected by both my teachers and peers. Volunteering is a big part of who I am. During the winter I help referee at our local youth basketball league. I enjoy doing this because watching and helping the kids participate in sports is fun and I feel like I am giving back to my community.
My ultimate goal is to obtain a college education at a respectable Midwest college and participate in that schools football program. I believe that furthering both my education and football career will prepare me well and provide me with the tools to be successful in the future.
