As a freshman, I put down my first dunk and was completely hooked on the idea that basketball could help me pay for my college, and perhaps become a career. I was actively involved in club basketball and junior high level basketball before this time, which helped me develop the prerequisite skills for high school basketball. During my freshman and sophomore years, I experienced a lot of growth and personal struggle, which helped me become stronger and push myself to the limits. This coming season, I have the opportunity to work with a more established basketball program at Campbell County High School, with Coach Bubba (Mike) Hladky. I was ecstatic when he invited me to take part in his club team over the summer of 2019. We were able to go to several tournaments, to include Big Foot Hoops in Las Vegas, NV. My commitment to basketball is not limited to games and practices. I enjoy getting up early and staying up late, adding extra practices and workouts to my schedule so that I can become the best player I am capable of being.
Throughout my junior high and high school experience, I pushed myself and was able to sustain a 3.89 gpa with all of my advanced classes. I excel in my college level classes and expect to continue to do well in college, despite the rigors of my athletic training. Though I have not committed to a program of study (in college), I am interested in medical and health sciences like athletic training and physical therapy. My interest in these areas became evident through my athletic training class during my sophomore year. I am also interested in math, science, and technology.
My commitment to the college that I attend is that I will be the best student athlete that I can be. I will work harder than you expect of me, and will continue to push myself to the limits.
