I would like to attend a college or university with very competitive academic standards. I currently balance a rigorous academic load (morning at Governors School for Sciences and Math and afternoons of AP courses at the HS) with participation on our high schools strong volleyball and basketball teams. I continue to play basketball through the spring and summer with an elite travel team.
On the basketball court, I am a leader and bring energy to our practices and games. I have been selected as a Captain for my HS team for my upcoming Junior season. I was also a Captain on my HS volleyball team as a Sophomore. I believe that my teammates on both teams regard me as a player that maintains a very positive attitude and approach through good times and adversity.
Although I am a point guard for my HS team, I prefer playing off the point, which is where I play in travel ball. I am an effective scorer, defensive contributor, rebounder and playmaker. I honestly get more joy from dishing out assists than scoring. I also get far more joy from my teams accomplishments than individual accolades and awards. Of all the input and feedback that I have received from my coaches, I am proudest that I have been told often that I am a player that makes my teammates better. I am very pleased to see my teammates succeed.
I love playing basketball and I am very excited about the prospect of continuing to play at the college level. I hope I am the kind of player that you will consider for your program!
