Alex Mitchell #MyReasonWhy

My name is Alex and I am a sophomore student-athlete at Holland Christian High School. I play basketball along with running track and cross country. As a part of the sophomore athletic leadership winterim class, we have been assigned to write #MyReasonWhy, which is a short explanation of why I personally play sports.  This is a campaign through the National Federation of State High School Associations.

I play sports because I am able to. Simply put, I am an athlete because I was given the opportunity to. God blessed with me with my athletic ability and working hard to use it to the best of my ability brings glory to Him. I also play sports to establish relationships with my teammates. My teammates see me at my best and at my worst.  It is through these peaks and valleys that I established some of my best friends.
