As a freshman, I was a backup point guard to a three year varsity senior. My role was to protecting the ball and get the seniors open shots.
My Sophomore year, I was the starting point guard again playing primarily with senior teammates. I adjusted my role to take on more leadership of the team. Although I was the youngest player on our team, I led the team in several key categories such as assists, blocked shots and fewest turnovers per minute of play. I was second in overall scoring but led in FG% and 3pt%. I was also second on the team in steals and rebounds. I was honored to be selected to the 2nd team All-Conference.
As a Junior, I found myself the only returning starter for our high school team. During this rebuilding season, I honed my leadership skills by helping the younger players gain confidence and knowledge of the game. Most games I was fighting with double teams and penetrating zone defenses. I was asked to guard the best player on every one of our opponents' teams no matter if they were Centers or Point Guards. I was selected 1st team All-Conference for my efforts and awarded Team MVP and Defensive Player of the Year by my teammates.
What makes me a good candidate for your team? My work ethic and leadership skills fit well with any team. I take instruction well and focus on the details of the game. I have passion to continue to improve my skills and never shy away from hard work. I am a driven person that attempts to excel at everything I do. I maintain good grades, have a strong ACT score and have received several awards in athletics, music and speech. In my free time, I enjoy playing the guitar and am interested in pursuing a career in Marketing Management.
Thank you for viewing my profile. I look forward to hearing from you.
