My name is Amani Scott, and I'm currently a Freshman at William Penn High School in New Castle, Delaware. I will be trying out next week to hopefully earn a spot on the Lady Colonial basketball team and maybe even spend some time on the varsity this upcoming season. In my spare time I like to draw, read and work on my game whenever possible with my father, as well as with Coach B's kids basketball program, where I was a member of the junior high level girl's AAU team this past season. I'm finding my first year of high school very challenging at the start, but I think that once I adjust to it I'll be just fine. I'm currently holding a B average in all of my major courses, but will be working to get my averages up to the A level. My favorite subject in school in English, and I'm currently in an Honor's English class.
On the basketball court I'm looking to improve my skills so that I can play not only shooting guard but also some point guard and small forward too. My strength on the court include my ball handling, rebounding and defense. I think my biggest weakness on the court is confidence, but I think that once my confidence level rises I think the sky's the limit. I also feel like I need work on my conditioning, as well as my outside/foul shooting, but I'm a hard worker, and will continue to work on every weakness to my game. My favorite NBA player right now is giannis antetokounmpo, and my favorite WNBA player is Sue Bird, I also admire Elena Delle Donne because of her versatility. I hope to one day be as reliable and versatile a player as Delle Donne, and I'm willing to put in the type of work necessary to reach those heights, I think my work ethic will be a way for me to separate myself from other recruits.
I hope to find a college program that I can grow with, not only as a basketball player but as a person too. I'm also looking for a college that can help me reach my career goals in the field of photography once I complete my college education. I think my skills, my dedication to the sport of basketball, and my work ethic will be a great addition to any college program, and as I continue to improve in these areas I will be able to help your program too.
