When I first started competing, I used to focus too much on how the other athletes were doing. This caused me to psych myself out and not do the best that I could. I learned to not worry about what others do. I cannot change what they are doing, I can only compete to the best of my ability. This way of thinking has reflected into the way I see life.
It was my turn to take charge as a leader for this team, but I letting everything just go bye. What is a leader, a leader is someone who has a vission and passion and should not be afraid of any problems, insted, he should know how to defeat it. I didnt know how to defeat it, no one did. We got lost, caught up in the hype, glory, and the relentless pressure to stay on top, insted of working for that championship ring, we were just waiting for someone to put on for us. The Trinity basketball program was founded on certain ideals, but those ideals were drounded.

I still wanted to be a setter so I worked everyday after school, getting lessons and practicing on my own time in order to improve my skill, though I was faced with a challenge.
