The concept of family, team and school is very important as it speaks to the importance of forming meaningful connections and a sense of belonging. Growing up on an Indian reservation, in a family of nine, attending an all boys school and being part of sports teams, there has always been a strong sense of team work and community in my life. Our strengths seem to have always come from our unity. College must be my home for four years. Being part of a strong and diverse school community where together we will possess great strength to do great good, sounds wonderful to me.
Hockey is so awesome. It is a huge part of me, as is lacrosse. They are both my passion, essential to my life. Through my two complimentary sports; coaches, trainers, team mates and family have taught me so much about life.

When I step on the ice, everyone knows it. My team watch to see what I will do and the opponents stay aware of my positioning and keep alert with their heads up.
My checks are clean and complete and my play is always smart and consistent, you can always count on me. Clear the zone, shoot from the blue line stay in the opponents face or be it breaking into the offensive zone to score, i'm always on. My specialty is penalty kill, nobody gets in on me and even my power play is rock solid.
Before a game and in a scrum my cheers are the loudest to energize my team and when we are down, no one will battle harder than me until the final buzzer sounds. My teams love me for good reason, I am there for them.
We have just started this college recruiting process and already it has opened a new door to so many dreams of what could be in life, sports and in school, it is very exciting. The prospect of finding an amazing college, a new home to share my gifts and grow to my full potential sounds like a dream come true.
