Being a student athlete has always been important to me and to be able to continue to be a student athlete at the next level has been a goal of mine since I started playing football my sophomore year. I played baseball and soccer for thirteen years before starting my football career, so I know what it means to be a versatile athlete and dedicate myself to a team. One of my strengths is my ability to put the team before myself.
I aspire to pursue a degree in Sports Medicine, as this would allow me to surround myself with sports for the rest of my life. With my 3.564 GPA in high school, my academic eligibility has never been a problem for my coaches to worry about. This has also allowed me to help my teammates with their work because they know they can come to me for help to stay on top of their classes. Having attended a rigorous college prep high school, I know what it means to manage my time efficiently to be a role model on the football field as well as in the classroom. I am also very open minded based on where I grew up and went to school. With the majority of students being minorities, I have learned about the many different perspectives and lives the people around me have. This has allowed me to continue the conversation about racial injustice and other issues present in society.
