During this second year of high school lacrosse, I was able to learn further the value of teamwork, commitment and sacrifice. The highlight of my sophomore year was earning the role of captain for my varsity high school team after a rigorous interview process. Experiencing challenges early in my high school career has helped me grow as an athlete and leader on the field. This time provided me the opportunity to again prove my abilities to my coaches and teammates.
I like to take command of the defense with strong, direct communication regarding positioning. However, I communicate to my defense in a positive way and do my best to be an encouraging force on the field as much as possible. I believe that good defense is team defense and in order to work best with my defenders, I encourage them to give 100% on every play and lead by example. I believe it is best to evaluate what happened on the previous play, then move on to the next defensive series since that is the only play that can be effected at the moment.
I'm looking for an institution of higher learning that is academically challenging with a lacrosse program of equal status. My academic performance is very important to me and to my family. I am, without exception, on the Honor Roll and intend to continue this high standard throughout my time in any institution of higher education.
I am looking forward to the next few years of high school lacrosse to only further my growth while defending the goal. I intend to display my work ethic and character on and off the field throughout the recruiting process.
Thank you for taking your time in viewing my profile and considering me as a potential recruit for your program and university.
