Personal Statement

NCAA Eligibility ID: 1911736410

I am a hard-working, versatile Class of 2023 student athlete who can play Libero, Setter, and DS and am willing to play any position in a college program to help it be successful. Playing college volleyball is my goal and I am working hard year-round to accomplish that goal. I am very coachable, willing to learn new roles and positions, and I can effectively play all 3 back row defensive positions, play Setter, and attack from the back row or both pins. Academically, I have a 3.93 cumulative GPA, am a member of the National Honor Society and the ACHS Student Athlete Advisory Committee, was named to the Academic All-Conference First Team during my Junior and Senior seasons, and was also selected as the School Winner for the Heisman High School Scholarship process in November 2022. I am planning to major in Sports Management with a possible Coaching minor and may pursue a Master's Degree in Business Administration, Sports Management, or Organizational Leadership.

I finished my high school Senior season at Antioch Community HS. During my high school career, I started as the Libero on the JV Team during my Freshman year, as a DS on Varsity during my Soph year, as a Setter on Varsity during my Junior year, and as a 6-rotation Setter/Pin Hitter on Varsity during my Senior year.  My team voted me as “Most Improved” during my Junior year because I volunteered to switch from a defensive position to Setter and helped the team finish with a 20-12 record. During my Senior year, I was selected to the 1st Team All Conference (NLCC) team, and my teammates voted me as "Team Most Valuable Player" at the end of the season.

In 2023, I will be playing my 7th year of national-level club volleyball for Sky High Volleyball in Libertyville, IL. I will be playing on the Sky High Adidas 18-1 Junior Olympic national-level club team. So far during my club career, I have played 6-rotation OH, Libero/DS in both rotational and perimeter defensive systems, and have also played Setter in a 6-2 system. I am not sure what my primary position will be this year yet.

In 2022, I started every match and played all rotations across many positions for the Sky High Adidas 17-1 Junior Olympic national-level club team. I mainly started at L/DS, but I also played several matches as a 6-rotation Pin Hitter and several other matches at Setter. 

In 2021, I played L/DS on the Sky High Adidas 17-Sophs team (as a 16U player), so I played up in age all season, including qualifiers and nationals. I started all matches, played all sets, and served every rotation. 

In 2020 and 2022, I competed in club-run Summer beach volleyball doubles power leagues and really enjoyed it. I train some in the sand, have taken some beach lessons, and am open to playing beach volleyball in college as well as playing indoor.

During the offseason, I regularly compete in college camps, regional recruiting events such as Prep Dig and Junior Day Showcases, and any open gym I can find. During my career, I have been highlighted in several recruiting magazine articles:

Prep Dig “‘Bros I Can’t Wait to Watch Play at the IL Top 250 Expo” (Dec 2021):

Prep Dig “7 Stock Risers from the Top 250 Expo” (Nov 2021):
