I am a sophomore tri-sport high school athlete who is committed to continuing my playing career at the college level. Up to this point, I’ve been chosen as Team MVP as a freshman for the JV baseball team, the Hard-working award for JV basketball team. I broke my arm right before my freshman year football season and dedicated myself every day in working through this adversity and committing myself to physical therapy and rehab to make it back to the team the last three games of the season. I have been very lucky to have two committed parents who have encouraged me to find my passion both inside and outside the classroom – so for several years I’ve had the opportunity to play on select soccer and baseball teams, JV and varsity football teams, as well as club and high school varsity basketball teams. In all the sports I’ve played over these years, my true love is – and has always been – football. I have learned a lot from my coaches in each sport I’ve participated in, and I’m very proud to say that I recognize how challenging their job is to get the most out of each player on the team. I have been selected as captain on for several teams I have played on, and I take this leadership role very seriously. I respect and pride myself on my willingness to listen and learn from each coach I play for – because I realize they have the best interest of the TEAM in mind.
My goal is play football at a college that not only values my effort as a player on the field, but my performance and success off the field as well – that is, in the classroom, around campus and in the surrounding community. I currently have a 3.6 GPA and stride myself in the classroom to work harder every day. I have volunteered through my church, school and local St. Louis-based companies in many different capacities, including but not limited to cleaning up parks and highways, participating in Sunday Night Lights charity event for kids with cancer and working with special needs children coaching and teaching soccer skills. I want to take this charitable effort and experiences I have to the college that I attend after high school.
