As a young athlete, my coaches used to tell me they loved working with me because I was "coachable". I never really understood what that meant until I was in 7th grade. I was fortunate enough to attend an excellent school that provided great athletic instruction and also provided and opportunity for off the field strength and conditioning program. Additionally, this was the year I was first exposed to a higher level all star football program and a tournament lacrosse team that trained year long. As a young multi sport athlete, I acknowledged the opportunities that was offered to me. Regardless of which sport, I took advantage of every opportunity that crossed my path. I trained with intensity and soaked up all instruction thrown my way, whether it be from a head coach, position coach, or strength coach.
I recognized at a young age that one of my goals in life was to play football at a high collegiate level, while furthering my education to set me up to be successful in life. Everyone knows that takes hard work and dedication on the field, but I also acknowledge it also takes hard work and dedication to school work, improving myself as an athlete and person, and making smart decisions in my daily life. I have worked to develop leadership skills, diversity in my athletic ability to be able to adapt to different positions so my coaches and teammates can use my athletic ability to maximize my contribution to my team, an overall positive attitude so I can continue to be that "coachable athlete". I fell as though I am well rounded in athletics, academics, leadership, attitude, and determination to bring value to your football program.
