Personal Statement

My name is Alexander Yokubaitis, I am 17 years old, my height is 5'5 and I weigh 120lbs. I wrestle at Saint Louis Catholic High School under Coach Terry Gage. Ideally I would want to wrestle at a college close to home, but taking into consideration the fact that I live in Louisiana and wrestling is not very big around this region, I would settle for further colleges. Obviously Division 1 would be my main goal, but I am open to any form of collegiate wrestling. The most important factor in a college for me would be that they offer one of the majors that I am interested in, which are: Engineering, Sports medicine/ Physical Therapy, or Business Management.

I believe that I would be beneficial on any team due to the fact that I have a strong work ethic and leadership qualities. I work hard and do my best to lead by example for all those around me. I attempt to better myself each and every day on the wrestling mat as well as in the classroom. Most importantly though I have a love for the sport that keeps me growing and evolving in my wrestling.

I started wrestling in second grade, mostly because one of my friends was doing it. At the age of eight, I figured that since I liked watching WWE I would enjoy this as well. As I started, I quickly realized that it was quite a different sport. Contrary to what I had believed, wrestling is as much a sport of mental strength as it is of physical strength. Wrestling has taught me a lot about life, but the two most important things that I have learned are how to be a leader, since I was fortunate to help lead my wrestling team to a state championship victory. The other lesson that it has taught me is that hard work pays off. It has also shown me things about myself. For instance, I've learned that I perform best when I'm busy, and that when challenges arise, I can step up and perform to the best of my ability. I have not faced very many struggles in my wrestling career, but one that has made it a little difficult is where I live. My goals are to wrestle on a national level, and that is very difficult to do when you live in Louisiana. I have had to drive up to two hours sometimes to get to a wrestling practice.  Even though that remains a struggle, my love for wrestling still drives me to go where ever is needed to continue my wrestling career.
