My goal is to continue to play lacrosse in college but be very successful in the classroom as well. I want to play lacrosse in college because I really enjoy the game; I love sports but playing lacrosse makes me happy. The game of lacrosse is very competitive and I enjoy this aspect of the game. I also love the fact that this sport is growing and I want to impact this sport further by possibly coaching and taking my love of the game and sharing it with younger players. I have begun doing this by helping out my coaches. I am teaching U12 and U14 lacrosse by helping the goalies prepare and train for their games, and in conjunction helping them to be successful leaders on and off the field. I want to give back to the community of lacrosse and help it flourish in the future.
I am a team player because I have good leadership qualities, and like to take control of my defense. I work towards communicating often to the defense and developing relationships with my teammates that allows us to play as a unit, not as individuals. Being a teammate means being able to cooperate, get along, and support them on and off the field.
I have an upbeat personality, and always like to make people laugh. I am a go getter and I want to be able to go to a school that is just right for me academically as well as athletically. I currently attend Brownell Talbot, a college-preparatory school located in Omaha, which is one of the best schools in Nebraska. It's academic standards and rigor are extremely high, which means I am driven to work hard and I know what it takes to become successful. My family has always had high expectations when it comes to academics, they push me to be the best I can be. Average is never good enough, and I am encouraged by this statement. I am looking forward to this journey and can't wait to see what my future holds. Whether it is Division I, II, or III; I will be ready to fully commit to a team.
