Guidance

“Playing sports is the guidance to my future. If it weren’t for sports, I don’t think I would be in the right direction in life. I have been playing football since I was six, basketball since I was four, and I have been running track since middle school. I began playing sports because my grandad wanted me to, but then I saw the better of it, so I kept playing.”

Competition

“I’m a super competitive person and being able to compete during sports is a major reason why I do them. I began playing golf at a very young age, and I started cheering in sixth grade. I love the competition in sports. I’m extremely competitive with both golf and cheer. Competitive cheer is a team sport, and everyone has to be competitive and want to win. Golf is more of an individual sport and players have to be self-motivated.”

Thrill

“All of the thrill involved in playing gives me something to look forward to. When you’re out there playing sports, you never know what’s going to happen. I wouldn’t have that thrill if I didn’t play sports. I have been playing basketball and softball since I was six years old. I have been playing travel softball since I was 12 years old and currently play for the Top Prospects team out of Muskegon.”

Brotherhood

“Playing football and hockey is about more than just playing the sports; it’s about brotherhood. I have been playing football since eighth grade and hockey since I was six or seven years old. I always know that when times get hard during a long football or hockey season, my brothers are there to support me and tell me to keep going. I always have my brothers to fall back on.”
