I am motivated to be a better teammate, player, and leader. So during the off season I go to an intensive training camp to work on my strength, coordination, balance, speed and agility. During one of my USA water polo summer seasons, my team struggled without a team leader so I lead the team in sprints, cheers, dry land workouts, tread sets and drills. I got voted best teammate that year by my teammates. I encourage the guys to give their best effort and support them if they make a mistake. I inspire guys to work hard in practice and to do the right thing by leading by example. In every sport I have played, I am the one leading the cheer, talking during breaks to lift guys up, screaming words of encouragement to help guys perform better. I want to out work everyone in the pool. I want to be the best I can be for the team. I am willing to do what it takes to improve myself, mind, body, and spirit if it helps our team win. In the future some of my goals are to be a team captain, win 2 state championships, graduate with honors and pursue college sports and academics. I want to compete at the highest level in the pool and the class room.
