I would like to obtain a college education, to better succeed in life as an adult.
I feel I'm a good candidate, and I differ from other players because I play both football & basketball. In my younger years playing football, (age 6-14), I was named to three state All-Star teams, and at age 14 was selected to the AYF National All Star Football team, where our team finished 2nd in the nation. I have the ability to play & excel in multiple positions in football, (center, guard, tackle, tight end on offense, end, tackle, linebacker on defense, long snapper on punt & field goal). I obtained my Varsity letter in my freshman year. Recorded 2 sacks, a forced fumble, & fumble recovery during my 1st Varsity start versus Raritan.
I also was selected & played in the Diamond Sports 9th Grade All American game, December 26, 2016 thru January 1, 2017 where we played 2 games & won both. I was selected for Tight End, Linebacker, & Long Snapper.
I have been selected as a Captain of many of the teams because of my will to compete, because I help my team & teammates, and I am a very respectful athlete to all of the coaches I've played for.
I've only started playing basketball in the past 2 years, but being 6'3" at age 14 has given me a great size advantage that has helped me to flourish.
I have also been an honor roll student many times. I enjoy school both the academic & social aspects, but really enjoy the athletic programs in school. I feel I'm a good student, & respectful of my teachers. In a rare move by Donovan Catholic High School, (Freshman rarely honored), I was elected "Unsung Student" for courteous, kind, thoughtful actions to classmates & faculty, or for having risen above & beyond the call of duty...
Outside of school, I enjoy fishing, hunting, and playing sports with my friends.
