I am the youngest of 7 children in my family, an honest son, a loving brother, and a loyal friend. My academic standards and standing have always been high, and athletics have been an important facet of my life. I have participated in organized basketball since I could dribble a ball. It is through my participation in league play that I have learned to channel individual aggressiveness into the team concept. I understand the importance of weight training, goal setting, individual skill assessment and improvement, along with accepting correction from my coaches and using that to better my performance. Working one-on-one with my club coach has afforded me an opportunity to accelerate my on court fundamentals.
Character is the foundation that drives my commitment to basketball as well as other areas of my life, including community service. I have spent time in New York helping rebuild homes for people affected by Hurricane Sandy, and have logged over 100 community service hours in high school. As a part of my Confirmation, I was able to collect and distribute enough supplies to provide for two basketball teams of kids less fortunate than myself. Sharing my love of the sport and the lessons it has taught me is vital. In closing, the prospect of playing college basketball, and furthering my education, drive me to work hard and bring the best of who I am to my performance.
