Personal Statement:

              Thank you for taking the time to read my personal statement. I will be a 2021 high school graduate. I am determined to earn at least a bachelor’s degree at a college, university, or military academy and to continue my football career.  First, I am a student who has the determination and motivation to be scholastically outstanding. I take pride and sincerely care about my education, my leadership roles, my service to my community, and my character. I work hard toward my college career by taking my education and my grades seriously. I ask questions, participate, and try to go above and beyond by going in early and staying late if needed. Second, I am a serious athlete. I train all year round by strength training, core training, agility training, and speed training. I have been recognized as a leader by my coaches and by my peers. Third, I serve in my church and in community organizations that I passionately support. I always try to be of service to those in need at school, on the field, or in the community. I also hold myself and those around me to a high standard of character and excellence inside and outside of the classroom. Once again, I sincerely thank you for showing interest and reading my personal statement.
