I am a team-first athlete who values the lessons learned from each game. Placing in the state tournament as a freshman was a great learning experience for me. However, losing in the second round of regions my sophomore year taught me more important lessons about humility, perseverance, and commitment to improving. These lessons compelled me to spend extra hours in the gym, weight room, and team building which expanded my confidence as a leader and player and resulted in an upset, 4-overtime, championship game win for our club's summer league title. I now feel well-positioned to lead my team through wins, losses (should they happen), and life lessons in my junior and senior seasons.
I am also a lead-by-example athlete who believes in setting a vision and working hard to reach goals both on the court and in the classroom. My goal as a student is to finish high school with a 4.0 GPA and to earn at least a semester of college credit prior to graduation. My goal as an athlete is not just a state title, but to create a legacy that outlives our team and tells others that we played with heart and had fun. To do my part, I lead with joy, encouragement, and a winning mentality. I am very coachable, have a high basketball IQ, am known for great passing and ball-handling ability, am a top defender, and bring energy and enthusiasm to the court every time. Playing basketball is a privilege that I don’t take for granted and I show up, every day, grateful for the chance to play again. I hope to bring this attitude and perspective into a collegiate experience in the future.
