Personal Statement

I am a high IQ close defender, scholar athlete, who is hardworking, athletic, aggressive, relentless and coachable.  I have advanced stick skills, and play with sound positioning, strong off-ball sense and am effective in the transition game.  I am a multi-sport (soccer, wrestling, football, basketball) and multiple Varsity Letter (2 in lacrosse and one in varsity wrestling in 8th grade) athlete.

I am ambidextrous (natural lefty) and will play LSM and take face offs. I have played Attack and scored and assisted when asked to give my team a "lefty" shooter.  I study game film and ask questions to improve my game IQ to be the smartest on the field.  I lock down my opponents and routinely gives up the fewest shots.  I am not erratic and will not leave my responsibilities to run down the field.  I excel in the transition game with my long and accurate passing.  I have been a Captain at every level. I am always willing to help my teammates and am consistent and responsible in practice and games.  I arrive early and leave late, and work extra on my game whenever I am able.  I work with my coaches outside of practice and talk with them to see where I can improve.  I am a positive person and make friends easily. 

I am a pool player for the JAMAICAN U-19 NATIONAL TEAM.

I am a dedicated student at Maclay College Preparatory School (highest academic school in Tallahassee/Leon County) who wants to go to graduate and professional school.  Academically I have maintained good grades and was part of the Duke TIP program for my academics from Lower School to Middle School (when the program ends).  I have taken all Honors classes since 9th Grade and am now in Advanced Honors Pre-Calculus and AP Music Theory.  I plan to take AP Physics and AP Calculus in 12th Grade.  I am interested in mechanical engineering and am looking for a school with good programs.  I took the SAT exam (without the essay) while in seventh grade.  I strive to be the best person I can by helping family and friends.  To relax, I play guitar and work on my car.  I am a certified technician and work on cars as a my job.  Over the summers I work at my school's camps for kids, and volunteer at the local Humane Society.

I started travel lacrosse for the Tallahassee Terror in 3rd grade and always "played up." At 12, I was starting over my older peers on the Terror HS team.  I have played through injuries, am relentless and commended by coaches for my highly developed lax IQ.
