Welcome to my NCSA Recruitment Profile,
My name is Jaylen Smith and I am looking to continue my experience with basketball at the next level. I consider myself the hardest worker on the team; although I am often undersized for my position(s), I will never be outworked by the opposing player. I take pride in my defensive presence: this year I am a stopper, guarding the best scorers on the other teams.
Academically, I understand my role as a student-athlete. I have never put a sport in front of my academic success, and you'll be able to see this in my transcript. Just like on the court, working through adversity gives me unique experience that will become valuable later in life. I have taken the "Grand Concours" (a National French Competition) twice and been awarded for my efforts both times. I received a 4/5 on the Advanced Placement Statistics exam which could give me an extra credit in college.
Even with my sports endeavors and strenuous academic schedule, I am able to maintain a social life. I have joined several clubs this year including Investment Club, Endangered Species Club, and Feminist Coalition. The members of these school clubs would describe me as outgoing and interesting. I see the time spent in clubs as worth while and beneficial for all the members who truly appreciate the club's core values. I am working with my teammate, Anthony, to create a new club that would delve deeper into the meanings of influential Hip-Hop songs.
I hope this statement has given you chance further know me as a student, athlete, and friend.
Thank you for showing your interest,
