I have always focused on education, both inside and outside the classroom. The first priority is academics followed closely by extracurriculars. I don’t believe there is a better classroom than sports, particularly wrestling. Wrestling teaches toughness, perseverance, and how to work hard to achieve a goal. As captain of my wrestling team, as a sophomore, I tried to lead by example and encouragement. I maintain a 3.95 GPA while taking advanced level classes and have the same high expectation on the mat. I plan to take this winning approach toward academics and sports to the next level at college. I hope to find a great college fit so that my hard work and enthusiasm can add to a wrestling programs success.
