I have a strong desire to compete at the college level. I realize I need to grow taller and stronger. I am currently in the eighth grade and have committed myself to work towards achieving my goal. I understand it will require me to be focused on self discipline and academics; as well as, athletic ability. I am attentive to instruction, learn quickly and accept responsibility for my actions. My relationship with God is first in my life! If it is His will for me to become a college athlete, with His guidance, instruction from my coaches and encouragement from my family, it will happen .
