On November 22, 2019 my Bozeman Hawks Football team won the Montana AA State Football Championship!!!!!!!!!
In both 2018 & 2019 I was named to the Montana Class AA 1st Team All-State Selections List, as well as the 1st Team All-Conference List, and also earned Academic All-State honors in both football 2018 and 2019, and basketball 2019. I was named the MT AA Defensive Most Valuable Player for 2019 and All Conference Defensive MVP also. I also earned my Academic Letter in October 2018 and plan to earn a new pin each semester of high school for the Project Excel program at my high school for top grades.
In addition to football, I have also played both local and AAU travel basketball for seven seasons. I made the varsity basketball team as a sophomore and on Thursday, January 31st, 2019 I was the 2nd highest scorer and top rebounder on varsity for our game vs. Billings Senior. And then, on March 9, 2019, we won the Montana AA State Basketball Championship - amazing experience!!!!!! I am on Varsity again this winter - 2019 -2020 - as the only junior starting, jersey #32.
In addition to football and basketball, I played club lacrosse for six seasons and two summers with the Bozeman Lacrosse League. I play center mid fielder/face off. I made the varsity squad in 2018 as a freshman, and we won the State Championship on May 20, 2018!!! That was a great day!!
I can offer a team someone who tries to get the best out of everyone. I understand that without the other ten guys on the field, or four guys on the court, I would have no success at all. I play team sports and the chemistry among the entire team is the key to success. I always strive to be the best through hard work, maximum effort, a positive attitude, and focus. My father’s favorite quote is “Attitude and effort equal everything!”.
I don’t have any particular colleges I would like to attend at the moment, although I am interested in studying business, engineering, or marketing and I would like a school that has excellent programs in those fields of study, a successful football program. My main goal at this point is to play at the DI A, or AA, level at a school that has a medium to large student body, and a strong business or engineering program. I am comfortable attending whichever school will give me the best opportunities for success both academically and athletically, and will allow me to make a positive impact on their team.
