Personal Statement

The whistle blows. I close my eyes and take a deep breath before starting my approach. The noise from other courts fades. It’s just me, my teammates, and the ball. The bigger the stage, the better. Whether we are playing a 5-1 or a 6-2, my job is to execute a perfect set from anywhere on the court so we can get the kill. In practice, I’m always learning, exploring, adjusting, and finding subtle, new skills to master. Whether it is perfecting the timing and placement of a set with each teammate, reading and exploiting defenses, or pegging the back corner on my topspin serve, I can’t wait to get to practice every day. I absolutely love it! On top of that, the friendships and teamwork I have developed through club and high school volleyball make me a better person. I will make a great addition to your volleyball team because I am a coachable, team player who puts in the work in the gym and in the classroom.  I am committed to being the guy who makes a team better both on and off the court.

Volleyball has been a part of my life for as long as I can remember, but as much as I love it, volleyball is not the most important thing in my life – family is. Both of my parents have PhDs and were athletes in college, so they have helped me learn how to balance academics and a busy schedule.  My life’s mission is to improve the health of my community, ideally as a physician.  I see college as an opportunity to give my best work in the classroom and on the court, and for me to continue to develop the relationships, knowledge, and skills I will need to make the world better.
