Lacrosse is something I have never gone without, as it has given me a passion, a never ending goal to work towards, and amazing teammates who have always lifted me up. The sport has provided me with endless opportunities to learn from some of the greatest players and most intelligent coaches out there.
Some strengths I have as a player that typically set me apart from others, include my ability to see ahead, my hustle and desire to be the first person back on defense, my ability to escape my defender on transitions to get the ball down the field, and my speed. I have never been a selfish player, and am always looking out for the best, most successful outlet or option on the field. Something that I have always valued and hope to bring across as I meet coaches and even different teammates, is my willingness to put everything into being flexible and cooperative. The importance of being coachable has been drilled into my head since I was young, especially having my father as a coach. I have learned that in order to be successful, with any mistake I may make, I must be willing to learn from it. Learning comes from listening to what a coach is suggesting, and watching your own teammates. After you have learned, you must work to improve and put in the extra effort to fix the bad habit.
Some athletic accomplishments I have include making the Upstate NY Brine Team, and getting the chance to travel to Virginia to play in the All American Classic. Also this past summer, I made first all tournament team as an attacker at the Maryland Girls Lacrosse Showcase.
Academically, I have always pushed myself to be the best I can be and will continue to do so. I have held onto a 4.0 GPA through out all of high school, and have challenged myself by taking multiple honors and college level courses.
I have made high honor roll every semester, as I have learned to become excellent with time management as a student athlete. I realize that whatever I bring to the table in terms lacrosse, doesn’t come without solid grades and commitment to school.
Moving forward, I hope to hold onto playing my game for as long as I can, bringing my speed and my unique ability to see the field with me. Thank you for reading!
