Personal Statement

    My Obsession with basketball all started with the first time I ever saw the game played. I was at my Uncle’s house for a family dinner. It was June 15, 2004, I was only 3 years old. I didn’t really understand what was going on at the time but I was determined to find out. Years later, I realized I had been watching two of the best teams in the sport of basketball’s history. Legends of the game, such as Karl Malone, Kobe Bryant, Shaquille O'neal and Gary Payton, played one of the best teams and starting fives ever, the ‘04 Pistons. I’m a true historian of the game, I have often been praised by friends, family, and coaches about my knowledge of Basketball and its history. I was actually even led to found a Sports History Club at my school due to this fact. I truly love the game of basketball. At the age of 4, I would run up and down the hallway at my house and shoot a sock to the area between the top of my door frame and the ceiling. At the age of 8, I cut a whole in a easter egg basket and taped it to my wall with duct tape.

    My playing career also started at 3 years old. My dad wanted me to learn how to learn how to work with a team, my mom wanted me to do football, but me and my dad had other ideas, I had just watched the ‘04 finals, and I wanted to play basketball, so in the fall my parents signed me up. From that moment forward that’s all I ever wanted to do. I received a basketball goal at age 7 and self taught myself the game of basketball without any serious training until age 10. Over my basketball playing career I have been blessed with great coaches, many of which have played Division I basketball, and even professional. Among these coaches or likes of, Kevin Anglin (Vanderbilt), Ronnie Mcmahan(Vanderbilt, Chicago Bulls), Dontae Jones( Mississippi State, Boston Celtics) and Jeremiah Crutcher(Tennessee State). These great not only taught me how to play basketball the right way, but also how to think basketball the right way. They’ve even inspired me to want to become a college basketball coach once I graduate.

In addition, I have committed myself as a student by attending a school known for academic excellence and a daily rigor of educational discipline. I am in a school environment that emphasizes the balance, dedication, and time management skills that you need to be the best student-athlete possible. My goal is to continue my education while playing basketball at the college level and continue to challenge myself as a student-athlete. However, life is much more than basketball, even though I am in love with basketball, that does not mean I don’t make time to help my community that I love too. I believe to truly be a great basketball player you have to be a great person, a person that is a servant leader. My parents and coaches instilled in me a passion to serve my community and help people no matter what background or circumstances they come from. I spend time helping the community at various service outlets such as, Loaves and Fishes, Hands on Nashville, Preston Taylor School tutoring, Best Buddies, Second Harvest Food Bank and several church sponsored service projects that include CIA and FBI (Compassion in Action) (Fathers Brothers in Action). I have committed myself to the game of basketball and would love the opportunity to grow as a player and as a man, and continue my basketball story at the college level. If you have any questions for me please get in touch. I look forward to hearing from you!
