I have played basketball since elementary school, and I absolutely enjoy the sport. I initially became interested because a neurosurgeon suggested I play basketball or baseball because of my impeccable hand-eye coordination. And it didn’t hurt that my father was a pretty good basketball player himself.
Through this competitive sport, I have learned how to work well with others, different forms of communication, and how to strategize for a win. I believe I grew the most as a student-athlete my sophomore year when our team went undefeated. That experience helped me grow as a person and an athlete because it taught me sacrifice, diligence and determination. I learned the true importance of everything my coaches taught me: leadership, commitment and teamwork. As a result, I have become a solid point guard capable of playing at the college level.
I am seeking a college Engineering program that will be a good fit for me both on a college basketball team and academically. Not only am I equipped to compete on a college team, I am a diligent leader who has integrity, a competitive spirit and a willingness to sacrifice. I know that I will be an impactful member on your athletic team. What separates me from the rest is that I am a young man of distinction who desires to win as a result of my hard work, but I always make time to give back to my community. In the Spring of 2019, I led my AAU team to win the Adidas Circuit Zero Gravity Qualifying Championship and won a local STEM coding contest where I created a kids interactive storybook phone app.
