Personal Statement

I am going into my Junior year in high school and am currently 5'9", 110-pounds.  I have been competing in golf tournaments since I was 7 years old.  I have won several Arkletex Junior Tour tournaments and championships.  I have also won many NTPGA East Area tournaments and championships throughout my years of playing.  I played varsity golf at New Diana my Freshman year and we won 1st in our District, 3rd in Regionals and 3rd in the Texas State 3A Championship.  My Sophomore year, I won 1st in our District, and our team won 1st place.  In Regionals our team won 3rd place and I was 4th individually.  In the Texas State 3A Championship our team finished in 6th place and I placed 12th in the state.

Other accomplishments I have in golf is I have been a member of The First Tee of the Piney Woods for 8 years.  I have worked my way up to Eagle and have been mentoring Pee Wee, Player, Par and Birdie students for the past 2 years.  As much as I love playing golf I have more fun as a mentor.  Helping those little kids learn how to hold a club, grip a putter and swing the club has been rewarding and more fun than I ever imagined.  I have been selected to attend the Joe Barris Leadership Academy in Boise, Idaho this July.

My ultimate goal is to play college golf and am not limiting myself to any particular area.  For financial reasons my preference is to be recruited by a Division 1, 2 ,junior college or NAIA college. 

During the school year I am also on the school forestry and shooting teams.  Outside of golf I enjoy deer and duck hunting.
