As a high school tri-athlete, I have had the opportunity to develop skills and build relationships with amazing coaches and teammates.  Basketball has proven to be my greatest athletic passion in which I aspire to compete at the college level.  I believe my competitive fire and drive to win and succeed is what sets me apart from most.  Whether I am in the classroom, running a race, or on the court, I strive to be the best student, leader, teammate, and player I can be.  Growing up with 5 athletic siblings has allowed me to experience and develop that competitive instinct, never accepting anything less than my best. As a member of the Wolverinas highly competitive AAU team, I believe our team’s relentless work ethic and commitment has contributed to our notable achievements. I take pride in the involvement I have within my high school community, as I am continually working to strengthen my leadership skills on and off the court.  I was honored to earn the role as captain of the varsity team as a sophomore and strive to be a positive, passionate leader for my teammates and coaches.  I undoubtedly will continue to work hard in the classroom and in my basketball training in hopes to reach my greatest potential as a student and college basketball player.
