I believe you have to work hard to achieve your goals. When I choose a college, I want to be able to enjoy my passion for football, but also get an excellent education. At the end of my college career, I want to have a degree in the medical field (possibly pre-chiropractic) and have a successful football experience. Another goal is to develop relationships and build lifelong connections with coaches, team-mates, other students and professors.
I am a good fit for a team due to my dedication and loyalty. I’m also coachable and honest in my interactions with coaches and everyone in my life. I believe in accountability and integrity and I have learned to expect the same from my team-mates. At a recent football camp where younger campers were present, I noticed they were throwing their helmets. I spoke to them about being respectful of their equipment, especially their helmets since it protects their head.
My size, strength and ability are also an asset. I am willing to work hard, learn, and improve. This has been true in my football career and for academics. I’ve had to work hard for the grades I’ve earned and I’m proud of my academic achievement. I am determined to be the best I can be.
I enjoy spending time with other players and getting to know them. I really enjoyed this during the camps I attended. I feel I have to be a positive influence in our community because I’ve made an impact on younger kids in the community. I am a lifeguard at the aquatic center and kids recognize me and come talk to me about football. It’s my responsibility to be a positive mentor. I learned this from my family and through volunteering with my football team for activities including three years at the Chad Greenway camp, assisting with younger player camps, helped the teams practice at the Special Olympics, and helping a local family move.
I am excited about my future and look forward to speaking with you. Thank you.
