Personal Statement

I have always played football since the age of 7 I would watch any game I could, I would throw a ball at least an hour a day just so I would be ready for high school football. My second high school game ever while playing as a junior varsity quarter back I got a sacked and I laid out on the feild for around 15 seconds later I found out I had a concussion and it was awful I had gotten the concussion earlier in the game and I played all 4 qauters with it but the coaches never seemed to pull me off the feild. It took 3 months to heal from my injury and after that I decided I should focus on another sport more than this one. That is what started me at high jump, in middle school I had already broken the middle school high jump record with jumping 5'8 inches in 8th grade. Football was my main focus but after the concussion I really just wanted to focus on high jump. My first high school meet I jumped 5'10 for a freshman that's pretty good but I wanted more. I worked and worked for getting high and at the end of the season I had made it to sectionals and regionals jumping 6'2 that also wasn't enough for me. So sophomore year I had really taken high jump seriously working hard and studying Olympians on how to arc and good run up techniques. I am now a sophomore leading the northwest side of Indiana in high jump, jumping 6'6 inches as a sophomore and not stopping me there. I want more and 6'6 is not going to cut it I'm working very hard to get a 6'8 jump in before the end of my season and I want to keep pushing for higher heights as I continue to high jump. I never stop studying the sport and I want to continue with this in college. I feel like once I'm in college and high jumping for a college team my dream will be fulfilled I have wanted to go big places with my athletic abilities since I have figured out that I could high jump pretty well. My final goal before high school is up is to be able to jump 7 feet or above and I do not want to stop there. It's what I want and it is what I'm planning to do. I don't think I have been committed to anything more than high jump and it would be a dream come true to be able to jump with other elite jumpers in the Collegiate level.
