I am from a small rural town in WV. There aren’t many opportunities for female athletes in my area, but my parents have always sacrificed in order to get me to practices and tournaments, no matter how far away, so that I am able to continue to excel at the sports I play. As a three-sport athlete, I am constantly utilizing my skills as a competitor. I’ve learned what it takes to not only win, but more importantly, I have pushed myself to the absolute limits; all while being a good teammate, as well as, a leader. When I was only four years old, my dad put me on an all boys flag football team. According to my parents, it was at that moment that they knew I would be an athlete. I know that God has blessed me with the talent, so I am constantly working harder to build skills on top of my natural athleticism, so that I will be able to continually get better and showcase that talent. Out of the three sports I play, I can honestly say that basketball is the one that has my heart, and my father has played a huge role in the love that I have for the game. I’ve been on both winning teams and losing teams, traveled a great deal, played with good friends, and played with people I barely knew. I understand that I sometimes have to make those uncomfortable sacrifices in order to reach my goals. After every game, I’m better than I was before, because I learn from both my errors and my triumphs. My goal is to play college basketball while simultaneously earning a degree. I am looking for a program that will suit me academically, as well as athletically. I truly believe that I have the talent, grit, positive, coachable attitude, and tremendous work ethic that it will take in order to be a college level women’s basketball player.
