Ever since I can remember all I wanted to do was to play sports at a high level. So now after winning a state championship with my high school varsity lacrosse team, I realize the next step in my career is to fulfill my dream of playing a sport in college. This year made me realize how much I would hate to stop playing and competing while in school. I had to watch my teammates play, as I suffered my first injury my sophomore year. Healthy now, It helped me grow as a player, a teammate and as a person overall. On the football field, I had to switch positions from quarterback to tight end and receiver. On the lacrosse field I had to compete for a spot to start on Varsity over a senior. In both sports I had to find my role on the team since, for the first time, it wasn't on the field. I wanted to do anything I could to help my team win, so I played other positions, played on weeknights with the JV team, and supported my teammates in any and every way that I could. All I wanted to do was to help the team win no matter what that meant, and that's what I want to do in college. Play for a great group of guys who I would do anything for, to win and make the team the best it can be.
I also am a competitor in the classroom, taking all the offered honors classes and maintaining no lower then a 3.8 to this point. That is partially why I want to be a physical therapist or doctor - to continue to challenge myself in my education. I was inducted into national honor society this year and won one of the highest awards for overall achievement at our school. This award ties in academic success(must make honor roll all three quarters), athletic, extracurricular involvement, as well as completing all required service hours. I participated in HOSA which is for students interested in pursuing a career in medicine, and also tutored younger students at lunches with national honor society.
I hope to make a positive impact in any way I can at whatever school is interested in giving me the opportunity. Will always be the hardest worker and competitor on the field.
