Personal Statement

As soon as I walked on the football field, at age 11, I knew that is where I was suppose to be.  My coaches told me I had the biggest heart on the team.  My strength and confidence grew the more playing time I received both on the offensive and defensive line.  The coaches liked how coachable I was and that I was willing to try any position.  In seventh grade I joined wrestling, which I continue to do, as it helps with my football footwork, defensive hand positioning and staying in shape.  I enjoy staying physically active.  Being part of a team is everything to me.

I have been working hard since touching a football to reach my goals.  I want to play football at the highest collegiate level.  I’ve worked on my academics both in and out of school to raise my GPA.  I am on a healthy eating plan, taking speed and agility classes, plus working off season at other sports to keep in shape.  Last year our team went 8-1.  I started on defense and special teams, but also had many opportunities on offense. This year I am 5’ 9” 190 lbs.  I have started every game at defensive tackle and special teams.  I have also had some offensive playing time. The coaches have said I am motivated, hardworking and stronger than any of the varsity players were at this age. They have brought me up to play on our 11-0 Varsity Team during our playoff run. I am proud to say I went in the last two minutes of a playoff game and had 2 tackles.  The experience is something I will never forget.

I am hoping to find a college that is the right fit for me in every way.  A college that meets my academic needs and helps guide me toward my career goals.  A college that I find peers that enjoy many of the same things as I do.  I really would like to get the most out of college life.  I enjoy being involved.  I have volunteered at an animal sanctuary and I have been a camp counselor at a summer camp.  I am a part of Habitat for Humanity and I like going to extracurricular activities at school.  I’m looking for a college that offers those opportunities.  My family is very important to me.  I know it would make them proud to see me at a college with excellent academic standards and wearing a football jersey on a field surrounded by my teammates.
