I love the game of football and have no desire to stop playing. I am a hard-working athlete. I am a trustworthy individual. I will play what positions the coaching staff want or need me to play. I am not above playing practice squad and scout team. I know it is an important part of a successful football program at any level.
On the field, I will take charge of varsity halftime stretches and work to keep the sideline in the game, even if it appears all hope is lost. In Junior Varsity (JV) games I work and lead the offensive linemen through our warmups and groups before we warm us as a team. I work to keep our sideline positive even in games like the 2019 Columbus East High School vs Columbus North High School JV contest where we lost 28-0. I've been told by teammates I bring a positive energy to the team both in practices and in games.
Off the field, I have been a leader in my Boy Scout Troop. I have been elected to the positions of Senior Patrol Leader (SPL), Patrol Leader (PL), and I've been appointed as Assistant Senior Patrol Leader (ASPL), Quartermaster, Chaplains Aide, Assistance Patrol Leader (APL). The positions of SPL, PL, ASPL, and quartermaster serve on the Troops Patrol Leaders Council (PLC), which is the head of youth leadership in the troop. For further clarification, SPL and ASPL are the 2 highest youth positions, PL and APL are leaders of a group of 4-8 in the troop. Quartermaster is the individual responsible for all troop owned equipment and making sure that all gear is ready for troop events. Chaplains Aide is in charge of leading all religious activities, mainly Chapple on troop outings and the Scout Sunday service.
Further leadership experience outside of football include my sophomore season of unified track where I lead my teammates, worked them to push themselves harder and to improve in practices so we could perform for meets, as well as leading and developing a handful of speed development workouts during the season as part of my Eagle Scout project.
I pursue healthy athletic performance by eating foods that will not negatively affect my performance. I work in the weight room to improve my strength and mental toughness. Other work I do includes making sure I am ready for our opponent by studying film. In practice, I don't take "cheap shots" on my teammates and in games and practice, I play by the rules and work to play the sport as clean as possible.
I am a member of the Boy Scouts of America, Troop 559 from Asbury United Methodist Church in Columbus, and through the BSA I have had the opportunity to serve my community through the Salvation Army, Lions Club, and groups the BSA oversees like the Order of the Arrow. The Order of the arrow in the BSA's national honor society, and prides itself on developing leaders who lead not by giving orders but by example and doing. Other groups that benefit the community I am apart of include the CEHS branch of Key Club, of which upon graduation I will be a 3-year member of. I serve on the CEHS Student Government (what we call our student assembly) and participate in groups like the Unified Track team, which after graduation I will have been a member of all 4 years of high school.
