Sports are an important part of my life. From a young age, I have enjoyed competition, participating in basketball, softball, running, and golf. In high school, I have earned my varsity letter in basketball, cross country, and golf. When competing, I commit to practicing and playing with precision, approaching each situation with spirit and energy. Acting with the courage to be accountable, I have gained the respect of my teammates, and have enhanced my team's ability to perform at our highest level.
Basketball has been a part of my life for as long as I can remember. My understanding of basketball strategy and my basketball IQ has been enhanced by watching my Dad, who is the Varsity boys basketball coach. Since the age of 7, I have always been the leader of all of my basketball teams. Perhaps my biggest accomplishment was being the starting point guard and leader of my varsity team as a Sophomore and as a Junior. This lead me to being named first team all conference as a Junior.
This dedication has expanded beyond the court, to my schooling and other sports and activities. Maintaining a GPA of 4.0 is very important to me. Applying myself to school and participating in clubs such as debate, key club, Magic Valley Arts Council, National Honors Society, and Business Professionals of America, allow me to excel in many ways. Also, I have had the pleasure of serving my class as the Junior class president. I do whatever is necessary to be the best version of myself.
Taking deliberate steps in the classroom or on the court, I have been able to excel by striving to be a good teammate and leader. I am willing to endure temporary inconvenience for permanent improvement. Basketball is a sport that I am very passionate about, and I would love the opportunity to continue to develop my basketball and academic career into college.
