I have many interests and hobbies that I enjoy.
There are two specific hobbies which I love most: basketball and
ultimate frisbee. I put a great amount of effort, passion, and time
into these two sports.

Since 5th grade,
I have been competitively playing in basketball in several leagues and
organizations. I first played in my town league during 5th and
6th grade, which supplied a lot of fun. I then took a step
further into Catholic Youth League for my church, Our Lady of Victory.
In high school, I played for the 7th grade, 8th grade, Junior
Varsity (2 years), and Varsity (2 years) basketball teams. In
10th grade on Junior Varsity, I was elected captain and awarded the
Most Valuable Player playing as a center. While on the Varsity
Team, I was elected captain, named one of the Top 50 Players in Nassau
County for 2009 and 2010, and awarded All Conference honors and a
Scholar Athlete while playing as a shooting guard.
Frisbee took over my life at the start of freshman year here at
Hartford. I am part of the Hartford Lighthouse Ultimate team, a
non-affiliated club of the University of Hartford. We have spent
many weekends at tournaments competing with other schools in the New
England area. Our biggest event of the year was our spring break
tournament down in Georgia, where we spent a week playing teams from
across the nation. I am the team's main receiver, typically found
dashing down the field and jumping sky high to catch discs for scores.
I don't fool around.
