Starting Varsity as a defensive midfielder for the biggest school in Washington with a broken hand was a huge accomplishment and challenge. I broke my hand the first day of tryouts, but I didn’t let it stop me. In total I missed one game that season, I did my best to give one hundred percent of my effort one hundred percent of the time. In addition, I also give one hundred percent of my effort towards school. I do not play Lacrosse for my school.
I have a long history of playing lacrosse. I started in third grade. I never was any good until my eighth-grade year. I was always picked last on scrimmage teams. I recall that once that my old 3/4 coach never once played me during our championship game. I don’t know why this happened; however, I use this as motivation every day to work out and play better. Things started to turn around for me in sixth grade when I played up with the 7/8 team. We ended up winning the league championship. I never was serious about lacrosse up until this point. Even then I was young and didn’t quite know what lacrosse all was about. Over the years, I’ve learned that Lacrosse and sports in general are all about a good teammate, player, and having good sportsmanship.
I currently attend Crosspoint Academy, where I am the sophomore class president. Crosspoint Academy does not have Lacrosse but have many other sports such as basketball, of which I play. I try to be a leader on and off the field. In the classroom, and outside the classroom. My teachers mention that I always lead by example, my coaches for various sport camps echo the same. I help at my local church, Harper church. I also have a part-time job reffing boys lacrosse.
