I am a scholar and an athlete and I compete to win. Recently completed my junior year football season and now playing varisty basketball as a 3-year starter for Papillion-La Vista (NE) high school. I am taking on leadership roles and value taking the initiative, quiet excellence and daily work in improving my athleticism and game. I lead by example. Academically, I have a 3.75/4.1 GPA and will continue to take college preparatory courses including AP & Honors. I recently took the ACT receiving a 28 composite and will take it again in FEB and APR. I take the SAT twice in the Spring in MAY and JUN.
As a football player, I played Tight End/ Hybrid Back (H-back)/Defensive End with high ratings as a blocker, receiver and pass rusher. In 2020, I had 34 receptions for 444+ yards and 3 TDs. My highlights show my yards after the catch. Moving into my senior year, I am focusing on TE/H-back and Linebacker.
Goals: I desire to improve my strength, speed, and vertical. I dunked a basketball this year in practice. I will lower my 40 yd dash time to under 4.7. I will continue to gain strength and quickness in the offseason. I will continue to take honors /AP classes and excel academically taking the ACT in Spring 2021. I will be the student-athlete that your football program desires.
Offers & Interest: I have an offer from Columbia University (12/30/2020) and interest from Nebraska, Kansas State, Yale, Army West Point, Air Force Academy, North Dakota State, South Dakota State, Lehigh, UPenn, Cornell, Princeton, and Harvard.
I value team play, hard work and preparation as keys to success. Due to Summer (AAU) basketball, I have not participated in combines, camps, or clinics. During Spring 2021, I will be running track to work speed. I will attend clinics and combines this Spring culminating in May 2021. I will attend highly selective football camps in June 2021 and through July 2021.
I am open to playing anywhere in the country and undecided on a major, possibly economics or business.
Thank you for your time,
