I have been involved in organized sports, such as football, baseball, soccer, swimming, and many others since I was five years old. I began wrestling when I was eleven and was quickly drawn to the sport. Over the years, I narrowed down my sports to football and wrestling, however, just one year ago, I chose to dedicate myself to wrestling. Wrestling throughout high school has been an outlet for me to escape my rigorous course load, as I am a 4.0 student enrolled in both honors and advanced placement classes. I am a person who is self-driven and believes in setting and achieving goals. This has benefitted me both in the classroom as well as on the mat. Looking into the near future, I am searching for a school that will provide me with an opportunity to achieve my personal academic goals, while also allowing me to continue wrestling because I am not ready to stop competing.
