My name is Tanzania Sherrill and I love to play basketball. I am a senior at Hillcrest High School, and it is my objective to have my basketball talent discovered. I plan on being awarded a full scholarship, that I may receive a free education, along with the added benefit of playing basketball. I hope to major in criminal justice and pursue a career in law enforcement, possibly moving on to the FBI.
I am certain that I will be a good candidate for any college team because I am a team player and take direction and constructive criticism well. I am a shooting guard who is 5 feet and 9 inches tall, weighing 130 lbs, averaging 15 points per game. I have been starting on our varsity team since sophomore year. I was All State in 2013-14 school year, named 2013-14 South Suburban Conference Player of the Year, and was also named one of the top 50 girls basketball players in the Chicago area.
I would prefer to go to school in Illinois. However, I would be open to attending school in another state should I receive an offer. I have a 2.5 gpa, and received a 20 on my ACT.
