Personal Statement

Football changed me in a way I can’t quite describe. In middle school, I was unfocused and undisciplined, but that changed once I made the team. In five years, I’ve played offensive line, tight end, wide receiver, outside linebacker and, now, safety.


As an outside linebacker, I understand both sides of the ball and can anticipate what each side might do. There’s a certain level of trust on the field that’s amazing--knowing we have each other’s backs no matter what. I take pride in helping my teammates both on the field and in the classroom. In fact, the discipline from football pushes me to do my best academically in high school; I’m taking honors classes and earning a 4.200.


There are a few things that I’ve learned that differentiate me from other recruits. I have a good work ethic. It drives me crazy when someone is naturally talented, but they don’t work to get better. Pushing each other to improve is part of the game. I also do my best to be humble about my abilities; cocky players are difficult to coach and hurt the whole team.


At Friendship High School, we know each other well and compete against each other in practice. At game time, we’re ready to play, aware of both the strengths and weaknesses we bring to the field.


That idea of working together and helping others fuels me. I recently finished a 20-hour Community Emergency Response Team program geared toward preparing regular citizens to act in crises situations. We learned about search and rescue, disaster preparedness and what not to do.


With what I’ve learned about myself these past few years, I’d like to pursue a career in a health-related field where I can help people. If I’m able to help, it’s my responsibility to help. It’s the right thing to do. For my teammates--and for the people in the community.
