Dear Prospective Coach:
What makes you a good candidate for your team?
Throughout my high school career, I have been blessed to start on both sides of the ball. Playing key roles, such as, running back and linebacker , since my freshman year of high school. I have the experience and I have always been a leader at every level. As a freshman other players, looked up to my hard work and work ethic on the practice and game field.
What makes you different from other recruits in athletics?
As you can see, I am a 5'11" 225 lb. football player. However, with my size comes great strength. My work ethic is great, I'm strong and semi-fast. And my desire to win is off the charts, as well as with my leadership. My class of seniors took an 0-10 football team to 7-0 (currently). I have played in a ton of big games, one being KMBC Game of the Week. I love to hit on the field and I also love the weight room. I may not always be the fastest, strongest, or biggest, but my heart will out-weigh it all and my film shows that. I am a person that is strong in my faith and I am of good moral character. I know that I will make a good addition to the right school's football and the overall community.
What makes you different from other recruits in character and academics?
It is important to be a leader and involved in my community. So, in addition to being a leader in football, I am a scholar athlete that also participates in basketball and track. Just recently, I received a 26 on the ACT, but I hold a GPA of 3.2. I do these things while staying involved in my community with Aware Sports Training group, I'm a former Boy Scout, enrolled in the A+ program at school, a member of my school leadership group, and Service Learning within my school. I plan on majoring in Psychology and minoring in business. I want to use my experiences from football and life to help others with my "talking therapy" business. You can believe that I have my head on right, know how to be humble, and the importance of being a leader in all that I do.
Last year, was a huge and disastrous year for me. In June, summer of 2019, I was in a bad lawn mower accident and almost cut off my big toe on my right foot. It was a terrible accident, which I realized how strong I really was. While I only was able to play in 4 games of my Junior season, I was the team captain, attended all practices, and cheered my team on every practice and game that I was out. When I was able to play, I still "broke off" and earned All-Conference honors from those 4 games that I played.
But it wasn't all over yet because the last and final game I tore my MCL in my right knee. I've never been hurt before or had to sit out all the major sports I do. But for the first time, I had to and it made me even hungrier to get back out there and have a breakout of a year. I planned on attending camps and get some interest from schools, but Covid-19 took that away from me. But despite all of the setbacks I've had. A "dog" is the type of player you're getting from me.
Even playing for a small school in a very large district, here are some of the accolades that I have earned are: honors and mentions for I have a film of all 4 years (Currently in senior year of HS) of all positions I've played, with RB, FB ILB, OLB, and SS. Also consisting of different weight and size. Freshman year: 185, Sophmore year: 190, Junior year: 205, Senior year: 225. I earned All-District (1x) as a Sophmore at ILB. And All-Conference Honors three times during High School, on both sides of the ball. I was honored with having made the All-Cass County All-Star team as a Sophmore. Awarded KMBC Player of the Week, for a career highlight game of 240 yrds, 5touchdowns (1 being a pick 6) 7tkl, and 2 sacks. And plenty of other accolades as well.
Thank you for your consideration.
