My name is Aidan Driggers. I am the second child of Dan and Darlene Driggers. I have one older brother and two younger sisters. My parents have always told us that our faith, determination, hard work, and knowledge that God provides would get us through. This is my attitude and desire when I participate in basketball. I give one-hundred and ten percent. Every person matters, and everyone must work to achieve the same goal. It is a team effort. No win is accomplished through one individual; it takes every man on the court, with positive attitudes, and determination. I recently received the honor of being awarded MVP for the Blount County Tournament. One of my younger sisters asked me if I was proud. I told her that I was proud of the team and their hard work. The award was nice, but it was not just won by my efforts alone. It took a team. Without the other players, I could not have to accomplish such a goal. That award was a reminder that we believed in each other and worked together to achieve a real victory.
Advancing my education is crucial to achieving my goals in life. I have spent my entire life working at the school or in a classroom. I understand that by furthering my education, I can make a positive difference in the world in which we live. I feel that basketball may be the key to help me achieve my educational goals without being a financial burden to my family. Although I have personal goals, I have and will continue to think of myself as a team player.
