As a young boy growing up I was introduced to golf by my dad. He would bring me out to the course and let me play on a few holes during his round, making me more and more interested in the sport. Throughout the years I have learned how difficult golf can be at times and I've worked through them constantly making it to where I am today. I've learned many aspects of the game from my dad ever since I was 5 and I continue to strive to be the best player on the course that I can be. Another person in my life that greatly effected my work ethics was my Pawpaw. Growing up around him he taught me the values and commitment it takes to have great success in life. He raised cattle behind our house and I worked many days helping him out on the farm. In addition to my work ethics I have maintained 4.0 GPA for all High school and Jr. High years. I feel that athletics is very important in my life but academics is an even greater priority.
Winning the state championship last year as a sophomore was definitely a major highlight of my golf career and I learned many skills necessary to play at high levels in the sport. Bringing home a state championship to a school that had never received a mens title before meant everything to me. Throughout that journey last year I learned the value of teamwork, sacrifice, leadership and the most important commitment to the game. I believe I have not only the talent to compete for a college team, but also the work-ethic, and leadership skills to make an impact on your program.
