Personal Statement

It has been a dream of mine to play basketball at the college level since I was in the fourth grade. As I transitioned to playing high school basketball, I became aware my dream was going to have to be more than a series of thoughts and images in my mind if I wanted to attain my goal of playing collegiate basketball. As I have gotten older, I have come to understand that I am responsible for transforming my dream into a reality. I have to make it happen through hard work and dedication. I have never worked harder than I am now to achieve my goal of winning a State title with my high school team and playing at the next level.

Two of the greatest compliments I have ever received are that I have a high level of emotional intelligence and that I am very coachable. From a young age I have always cared about others and how they feel. I believe that building each other up, work ethic, integrity, and good sportsmanship are fundamental to both sports and life. When my coach told me that I would be a starter during my freshman year, he also told me that I was the only freshman to start Varsity in the last twelve years in our basketball program. This was a great opportunity and it pushed me to step up and develop key leadership skills. Basketball has taught me to be humble on and off the court and to be accountable. I respect my coaches, teammates, and officials. I will always give my best to my team, my coaches, my education, my family, and my community. I will be the person who shows up when someone is in need and I will be the player that not only shows up but will give everything I’ve got.
