Personal Statement

"My role as a player is to do whatever is necessary to help my team reach its full potential. Whether on or off the court, I promise to fulfill this duty. It could mean playing with 100% effort all of the time, keeping teammates out of trouble, executing what my coaches ask of me, or even sitting on the bench when a fellow squad member is needed on the court. I pledge that this, combined with my yearning to do well academically shall continue to be exhibited, making me a very recruitable college player."
