Hi my name is Scott Hammel and I am a goalkeeper for the Albion Hurricanes soccer club. Personally I think one one of my biggest strengths is my hard work ethic. I know you guys are thinking that you have heard a million kids talk about their hard work ethic, but I think I can prove that I have a harder work ethic than most with a story of how I got on the Albion Hurricanes. When I was 13 years old I weighed 220 pounds and I was only five foot nine. That year I asked my parents if I could try out for the Albion soccer club and they said no because of how much I weighed. So over the next year I worked as hard as I could to lose weight. After that I got my weight down to tone hundred eighty pounds and in that time I also grew two inches. When i got my stature to five foot eleven one hundred eighty pounds I asked my parents if I could try out for Albion they said yes. I was very excited, over the off season I worked as hard as I could and I made it on the team. Another reason why you should recruit me is because I am very academically motivated. I will always try my best to get the highest grades possible, and I will work hard to keep those grades up after I get them. Lastly I would like to talk about my leadership skills. Over the past year I have worked my hardest to try to get through to my teammates, and try to motivate them to be their best. One problem I sometimes have with motivating my fellow teammates is my motivation can sometimes come across as aggressive. In the future I will work my hardest to try to be more positive when motivating my fellow teammates.
