Receiving Defensive MVP my freshman year was one of my greatest accomplishments as a high school athlete. I had received many accolades and awards in youth sports, winning on the high school level was a different feeling. I feel I grew the most as a student athlete during my Sophomore and Junior year. New coaching staff meant doing things a different way and for the first time I found myself playing middle linebacker, not starting, receiving less play time, and not being allowed to run the ball at all something I had done and done well for the last 5 years and it wore on me both mentally and emotionally. I could have given up playing football altogether, instead I used that as an opportunity. That situation helped me to grow within myself, I focused less on the position itself and more on my responsibility in that position.
During my high school career, I have been fortunate enough to make it to the first and second round of play offs with my team. I learned teamwork, the importance of putting in hard work, being dedicated to my craft and focusing on the right now while prepping for my future. Most importantly I learned the true meaning of leadership not only how to take direction from a person in a leadership position but how to be a better leader myself. I am looking for a program that will be a good fit for me both athletically and academically. I believe in myself, i believe that I am capable and talented enough to compete on the collegiate level, with my handwork, dedication and focus attitude and a heart for leadership I would make an immediate positive impact on your team. As a three-time captain during my high school career, offensive MVP during my freshman year and a leader on the field and off, I know I have what it takes to be a leader on your team!
