Personal Statement

 I am a 6'3" combo guard that played my freshman season (2016-2017) at Wenatchee Valley College. This season (2017-2018) I am in the process of being granted a medical hardship. I am looking to transfer to a 4 year university to finish my collegiate career. I will graduate from Wenatchee Valley College this Spring with an associates in General Studies. 

I played both the 1 and 2 position at Wenatchee Valley College for Coach McGinnis. Coach McGinnis relied on me to create offense by attacking and collapsing defenses. Once we adjusted our offense to more of a pick and roll spreading the floor, I averaged 16 points per game over the final 9 games of the season. This experience has helped prepare me mentally and physically, allowing me to develop the skills that are needed to play at the next level. I'm a all purpose guard who can effectively attack the basket, distribute, dribble and knock down shots from the perimeter. My versatility extends to the defensive end with my ability to apply pressure man defense to positions 1-3. I was always assigned to the opponents best offensive player, which I took pride in and willingly accepted. I continue to work hard on and off the court and realize the important roll that academics play  in college. I will be an asset to your team and to your school. I am excited for the opportunities that lie ahead and would like to thank my parents, teachers, coaches and God for providing me the support system that is necessary to make my dream a reality.

Looking forward to hear from you!
