For the past 5 years, I have been a 3 sports athlete that includes football receiver/safety, track & field 4x4, 4x1,400m, and basketball H.S., G/F/C and AAU. My goal is to compete academically and athletically. My mother has always taught me that academics comes first before anything. My mother is very firm and always would say to me she will not allow me to go back and fourth when is comes to my school work/grades and sports. What I mean by that is one week your ineligible to play and sitting on the bench and then the next you good to go because you brought your grade up.
My mother wasn't having that, I did that one time and she said if it happens again she was taking me out for the season. It was one way with my mom and that was to keep great grades no matter what, and not just for sports. With that being said, I look to be at a university that help me succeed academically and to be able to learn in a very humble environment. I am very responsible, genuine, hardworking, and very coachable. I look to succeed and willing to learn more to help me perfect my craft/academics/athletic skills.
My intangibles are as follows: I give a million plus in my academics and athletically. I play with the highest energy and always pumped and ready to go to uplift my team mates. I play with a lot of passion, aggression, focused, positive and believe you can never stop learning. I am a leader and always represent well.
