My name is Antonio Salinas, but I prefer to be called Tony. I am just a kid that has big dreams to play basketball at the next level. I hope to utilize basketball to help me get my degree. I would like to work hard to make the Deans list and stay there throughout my time in college. I know this will be hard to do but I believe in working hard to accomplish the things you want. I feel I am a good candidate for any team because I am coachable, a good teammate and have a desire to improve everyday. I believe in having fun competing in this game I love.
I think what separates me from other recruits is I understand I have room for improvement and will work my tail off to get better. I have a fire inside of me that drives me to work hard. I don't think I have anything to prove to anybody but if you doubt my abilities I will prove you wrong. If you say I can't do something I will do it.
I will end on this statement: The game of basketball has been everything to me. My place of refuge, place I've always gone when I needed comfort and peace. It's been the site of intense pain and the most intense feeling of joy and satisfaction. It's a relationship that has evolved over time. It has given me the greatest respect and love for this game.
Thank you for taking the time to look at my profile.
