I have only been running for a few years. I originally started Track & Field to get in shape for football. Without realizing it, I fell in love with running. I am still learning and as my technique gets more refined, I keep dropping my times. An example of this is I would warm up with some stretches and do a little jogging prior to my race. Based off of this, my best time was a low 52 in the 400. My last race of the year, I jogged a mile prior to my race and decreased my time to a 50.145. I did not realize my muscles were not loose enough prior to my race. As I gain more knowledge, I expect to decrease my time. I can see myself running low 48’s in the 400 by the end of senior year and getting better when I go to college. I also high jump and currently I have cleared 6’0”. As soon as I realized my potential, I have aspired to run at the collegiate level.
I am now working with a personal trainer year round and he is correcting some of my technique. My block starts are getting better and I continue to improve. I am a team leader and strive to lead by example. I am a quick study and very coachable. My work out ethic is strong. You will find me to be one of the hardest working recruits. Additionally I like to lift weights. I can squat 350 lbs and bench 240 lbs.
In the classroom, I study hard and maintain a 3.8 overall GPA. I plan on going pre-med and eventually working in osteopathic medicine. I have volunteered at multiple running events and participated in a can/food drive for Veterans in need.
I want to attend a college where I can push myself in the classroom and on the track. I am open to all options and want to ultimately find the right college match at the highest level of competition possible. I hope to become a great role model to all my peers and make my parents proud.
