I'm Christian Pfeiffer-Laguerre. My goal is to make it to the college level and to perform my best for my college program. I am an exceptionally hard worker who doesn't quit. I always give 100% effort when wrestling, and I always want to improve. Unlike some other athletes, I am proud to be a scholar athlete who takes many AP and Honors level academic courses and drives for good grades. I am always striving for greatness whether it be in the classroom or on the mat, and I'm a very adaptive person. I've always lived by a saying my dad told me when it comes to sports, "You can always say you tried your best, but if all you do is try your best, you'll never be a champion. To be a champion you must make your best better every time you perform because your best shouldn't have a limit. You should always look to improve and only then will you be a champion." All I want is to be a team player and to be the best I can be. I will endure through the hardships and go the extra mile to achieve my goals. Two of my seasons were cut short due to injuries. I continued to attend practice and encourage my teammates. I not only wrestle at Concord High School, but I wrestle preseason and postseason at Penn Wrestling Club. Concord High School does not have a wrestling club, so I travel to Penn High School to attend their club and attend competitions. This past June I went with Penn Wrestling Club to the Scholastic Duals at Disney World. Wrestling has provided me with some of the best moments in my life.
I have also played soccer for many years. Last year and this year I chose to play soccer at Concord High School, also. While wrestling is my main focus, I truly enjoy soccer. I played in a local recreational league and later began my soccer referee career there. I have been a certified USSF soccer referee since I was 13 years old.
I have had to balance academics, athletics, and employment. While I have received great support from my family, my mom and dad have also taught me that I am responsible for what I do. It is my responsibility to be sure that my academic achievements are not secondary to sports. If I manage my time well, I can be successful in both.
