My name is Bruno Guberinich. I’ve been searching for my ‘why’ during my adolescence. My ‘why’ is Football. It’s not something I want, rather, something I need. My goals are big and I dream big. I want to play football in college and professionally. I am willing to make sacrifices, endure hardships, and take on all challenges for the betterment of my team, teammates, and personally. Football puts me in another place mentally and physically and allows me to forget my problems and leave it all on the field.
I have been playing football since 3rd grade and the game has developed me in many ways. Football has improved me as a person from my character, mental/physical toughness, academics and overall dedication. Football teaches many life lessons. It has humbled me and keeps me grounded. I appreciate the game and the challenges it represents, much like life; focus on the task at hand, one play at a time mentality.
Football has developed my character and prepared me for life. God has given me a gift of physical stature and athletic ability to play this game. My character and how I conduct myself is how I can give back to others less fortunate. I didn’t realize the importance of this, fully, until I volunteered for the Miracle League; which is a baseball league for handicapped kids, giving them the opportunity to play and experience the game as anyone else. This truly put what I’ve been given in perspective. This made me appreciate all that I have by putting an emphasis on character.
I am a leader on and off the field. I strive for success both academically and athletically making the honor roll every year since my freshman year and making the All-League team my junior year. My family, teachers, coaches, and teammates have given me the motivation to stay focused on reaching my goals. I will continue to be a leader, hard worker, and maintain great character.
