My long term aspiration is to wrestle in college, earn a degree in accounting/engineering, and open my own wrestling/Jiu-Jitsu club. I have been doing Jiu-Jitsu since I was 8 and wrestling since I was 10. Many of my coaches have had a great impact on my life and they helped shape my desire to be a coach as well. I really want to do the same thing for the next generation of wrestlers. I want to attend a college that is, not only, competitive in wrestling but will also challenge me academically. My GPA is 3.55 and I am taking several Pre-AP classes this year.
I think my work ethic will be the first thing coaches notice about me. I am willing to put in the work to reach my goals. During the school year, I would participate in high school practice in the morning for 2 hours, go to class, and then attend my club team practice at night. My drive paid off my freshman year, when I made varsity and placed 4th at state. I was the 6A 120 lb state runner up my sophomore year. My junior year I made it to state but got injured during my second match and had to withdraw from the tournament. At the same time I also know I have a lot to learn. I understand that I must keep working, keep pushing myself in order to reach my goals (win state and wrestle in college). I also apply that same work ethic to my academics. I made A/B honor roll and I was nominated for two awards by my teachers: hardworking and positive attitude awards.
