I want to be the BEST at whatever I do in life. My goal is to play basketball at an excellent university and obtain my degree in my chosen field of study. Most players want to be the BEST, but are not willing to put in the work to be the BEST. I have played on many teams throughout the years and that frustrates me at times. I am willing to make the sacrifice to be the BEST. I am a gym rat who has all the intangibles to be GREAT. I lift weights and do basketball workouts all year round to build my body and improve my game. My Dad is a coach and he taught me that the way to win basketball games is to play hard nosed defense, rebound, make clutch free throws, and take care of the ball. I ALWAYS want to guard and shut down the other teams best offensive player. My varsity coach allowed me to do that and I did not let him down. Most players do not box out. I DO and that allows me to be an excellent rebounder as a point guard. I shot 86% from the line my Senior year. I want the ball in my hands at the end of the game. I protect the ball and make the clutch free throws that win games. As the point guard, I strive to be the leader/coach on the floor for my coach. I communicate with my teammates so they know what we are running offensively and defensively. I was able to lead my team to State my Senior year.
If you recruit me to play basketball at your university, you will get a player who is an excellent shooter, has a HIGH basketball IQ, energy, enthusiasm, confidence, competitiveness, excellent grades, makes good choices, tremendous work ethic and the WILL to succeed. Please take a closer look, I think you will be impressed with the total package.
I played basketball for Loras College this year. They recruited me extremely hard and made a lot of promises. I had over 20 schools that recruited me. I committed early to play for Loras because they showed the most Love and said I would be their point guard for the next 4 years. When I showed up at school in the Fall of 2017, I found out that the Loras coaches made a lot of promises to many other players as well. There were 37 basketball players that showed up to compete. As practices started, it was evident that the coaches had predetermined who they wanted on the Varsity. I did not feel like I was given any chance to show the coaches what I could do or even have the opportunity to move up to the Varsity. I ended up on the Varsity Reserve team which is not what I expected based on the recruiting promises. I am not afraid of competition. However, I need a coach who values hard work, smarts, and heart, not just measureables. I need a chance to show you the entire package.
