The person who made me start loving the sport of basketball was my Grandfather Larry. He won 4 state championships in high school and went on to play college basketball. I have played Varsity basketball since my freshman year just like him. I always give 110% on and off the court. I tend to be selfless when it comes to playing the game because my parents have taught me there is no “I” in team. Don’t get me wrong I can finish hard to the basket, but I am always aware of my surroundings so I can pop the ball out for that open three. I strive to be that player you don’t want to guard or be guarded by. I am a humble person that doesn't like to brag so this is a little difficult for me to write.
My academics are great. I have an 89% average for grades. I strive for A+'s in high school and plan to do that for college. I decided to challenge myself this year by taking two AP courses. I love a challenge it tends to make you stronger. I am that student who is willing to help my peers with their struggles and tend to become a natural leader on and off the court. Some people perceive me as being quiet but I’m actually observing everything and making a plan of action.
