Nicholas's Story

My passion is basketball.

As a child, I often found myself in positions where I was not the best candidate to play with the big kids. Even though my story sounds like a cliché, it is meaningful because not being able to play with my older cousin put a huge chip on my shoulder. It caused me to strive to be the best at everything that I do. Today, basketball is my passion because it allows me to fulfill my hunger for competition.

I will develop my passion for the sport of basketball by attending a Nike Basketball Camp because participating will help me become a better basketball player and a better individual. The Nike Camp offers a variety of skills, drills, and ways to build character through interacting with new people. All of these attributes are a necessity for succeeding in basketball and essentially life. I know that I have a lot to work on if I want to be the best, and I’m willing to take any opportunity offered.

A Note from Mr. Sullivan-Pires, Nicholas's Teacher

"Nicholas is passionate about basketball, and has often committed himself to staying late at practice to work on his skills.

Since 9th grade, Nicholas has spoken quite passionately about his goal of playing basketball in college and professionally. Attending the Nike Basketball Camp will allow Nicholas to determine if he has the ability to compete at the next level."
