Additional Questions:
Why do you want to be recruited to play sports in college?

I love rowing, more specifically I love winning. Working hard to accomplish a goal with your team and then the rush of getting first place is a feeling like no other.

Athletes are often leaders on and off the field. Please provide one example of how you have demonstrated leadership in both areas.
Please explain how you pursue "healthy athletic performance" as a student-athlete.
Please describe how you are involved in service in your community and why these efforts are important to you.
