The bar for me has always been high whether it's at the top of the podium at state track, as the center on the varsity basketball team, as a quarterback, in academics, or just a good role model. Growing up as the oldest of three brother, I have always felt the need to pave the way for them in all aspects. This is the same thing I have experienced in high school athletics. As a freshman in high school, my team reached the semi-finals of the state football playoffs. The following year, I split time with the senior quarterback; we came just short in state championship, losing by a failed two point conversion attempt. As a young quarterback, two years on varsity under my belt has given me a unique opportunity and responsibility. Now I have my eyes set on a different responsibility to my team. My new ambition is to be a leader of a stronger football culture at Roosevelt High School.
Off the field, with my two active siblings, I have also developed a strong work ethic and ability to budget my time. This has allowed me to succeed academically despite being a three-sport varsity athlete. Aside from a strong football program, I would like to be part of a program that values academics with the same level of importance. In the months to come, I hope that my leadership can help lead the team all the way to a state title and and to a culture that can continue long after I'm done with my high school career. Someday, I also hope that I can become a part of the culture of your program.
