My goal is to utilize the sport of basketball to further my education and personal growth in preparation for the game of life. Although I have not made a final decision with regards to my continued education, I’m certain that I will choose a field that will help people in the long run – perhaps sports medicine or therapy as an example. On the basketball court I plan to be a dynamic player who is both coachable and a team leader. I have begun a transformation from post player at the youth level to small forward/shooting guard in high school and look forward to continuing my growth with these roles on the basketball court as I develop both physically and mental throughout my remaining high school years and college basketball career. I will strive to continue my focus on being a team leader, being coachable and an asset to my team with regards to contributions made on the practice floor and games. In addition, I want to conduct myself on and off the court in an honorable and respectful fashion that reflects the values that I have been raised by.
