I have been playing soccer since I was 5 years old, and I also did summer track to maintain my speed for soccer. Soccer has always been my passion. I always knew as a kid that I loved competition, so that is how I knew that soccer was going to be a great fit for me. Throughout all of my soccer teams, I have been captain and exemplified leadership skills when asked to from coaches or teammates. I played high school soccer, and I have been on Varsity for all four years. I was awarded District MVP and 1st Team All State last year as a junior playing center back. Then for my senior year, I was nominated Captain of the team, and I was also awarded 1st Team All State again for the second year in a row. Not only do I play school soccer, but I also play select soccer for the Dallas Texans.

My name is Sariyah I been playing basketball since I was five years old. I got hurt my freshman year and had to have two back to back surgery's. But basketball is a sport I always loved to play and still love to play but here it is my junior year and I haven't played ball in two years. So as of right now I will really appreciate it if I had the help to go to school in Sports management.

I want to apply for this scholarship because I am currently in high school and throughout my whole life i have loved playing soccer. I've learned to balance the two and hope to continue to play soccer in college while studying. I unfortunately do not have all of the money to do this and would be drowning in school loans if i could even get enough loans to go to that school.

Dayne L  on 3/3/2020 4:21:53 PM

I have been playing football and almost every sport since I can remember. I have played football through pop Warner and then into high school. I am also on my high school's powerlifting team. I am applying for this scholarship because I need any form of financial assistance to pursue a degree from the school of my dreams.

Darius Brishaun Hayes  on 3/3/2020 12:43:05 PM

Olivia P  on 4/25/2018 11:35:58 AM

Hello. My name is Olivia Perkins, and I attend Farmington Hills Harrison High School in Michigan. I would like to thank Footlocker for the opportunity to apply for the scholarship. Whether or not I am fortunate enough to receive an award, I know I will remain true to my commitment of reaching back, and supporting those less fortunate, or in need of guidance. I have been blessed by receiving varsity letters in 4 sports (Basketball, Volleyball, Soccer, Tennis). I also have an unweighted 3.9 GPA as an International Baccalaureate student, and earned a 33 on my ACT. Applying for the scholarship really helped me know and understand more about myself, and what I contribute to society. I will be playing basketball at either Cornell, or Case Western Reserve in the Fall. Thanks again!

Evereonna s  on 4/25/2018 10:32:14 AM

Austin M  on 4/19/2018 10:38:16 PM

I applied for this scholarship is because its a once in a lifetime opportunity it would be dumb to ignore.

Kylie M  on 2/5/2018 9:05:31 PM

Good afternoon, my name is Kylie Millner and I attend Sussex Technical High School. I have participated in a variety of sports for about 8 years now. For the past three years I've been apart of the cross country team at my school. My freshman year of high school was the first year that I experienced the sport cross country. Going out for the team, I would have never known that I would love this sport and would receive important lessons of life that helped me grow mentally, and physically. Sports is a way for individuals to push themselves and achieve the goals that we have in our lives. Being apart of a team is also important, because it helps you to realize that having a family that will encourage you and push you to the limits that you have as an individual is very beneficial in life. I feel as if sports influence you on the field but even off. Your mind becomes confident and stronger and you realize that you can do anything you put your mind too. This is why I have an interests for this scholarship. To everyone, I want to encourage you to keep on pushing and never give up because you can do it. Thank you for your time.

Davis B  on 2/1/2018 5:22:56 PM

My name isn’t Davis Barton, I’m a senior at Adel Desoto Minburn High School Iowa. I am interested in this scholarship because I’m passionate about sports. I love the thrills, the highs and the lows they bring. I love being part of a team and having teammates that I know have my back whilst I have theirs. Through high school I have dabbled in multiple sports and activities. Freshman year I participated in Football, basketball, and soccer. I was honored freshman year to play varsity soccer and to compete against older and stronger kids. When sophomore year arrived I decided to try cross county, I received a lot of grief from my football coaches, but nothing could change my mind. I ran in a couple varsity meets with my best time being 19:27. Junior year is when I realized I disliked running so much, and loved being in a team more so I rejoined football (I have no idea why I thought I’d run less) ended up as a starting corner for varsity. The knowledge I had gained from older teammates was priceless saying, “your’e not going to win every down... But we sure as heck will try.” This comment at the moment didn’t mean much to me I found it more funny than serious. I didn’t fully understand what those words meant until I became the leader. Finally I reached senior year, I became captain of the football and soccer team loved competeing each and every day with my teammates on and off the field. Currently I have a 3.4 gpa and have been on my schools honor roll since 6th grade. I’m applying for this scholarship just for the chance to help me pay for my college tuition, I am planning to become an Electrical or Civil Engineer. Like sports, I’m excited at the challenges these two degrees bring. It reminds me of why people compete, to prove the doubters wrong. Finally thank you for allowing me to the chance at this FootLocker scholarship. I appreciate how FootLocker is looking out for athletes across the United States and pushing them to keep competing at the next level.

Hi, My name is Payton Case and I am attending Shakopee High School in Minnesota and currently a junior. I am interested in this scholarship because it would help he with paying for college and also help with my family. I have been on the A or B honor since i was in seventh grade. My the semester I just finished I received and hold a 3.45 GPA. I have been playing sports for as long as I can remember. I play varsity Baseball and Football right now as a Junior. And I also played basketball but I quit my sophomore year because i wanted to focus on my training for baseball. i play club baseball for the Minnesota Starters and we travel to AZ and NV for tournaments and we won a tournament in Nevada. And there is not a day where i don't think about baseball. I love putting on that jersey and representing my town and community. I love playing in the nice weather and not worrying about anything but the sport i love. I play 3rd base and also shortstop. And Im also a running back and wide receiver for Shakopee as well for Football. I would like to attend a 4- year college and start to pursuing Business Management or Sports Medicine. Thanks again for the time and opportunity to have FootLocker Scholarship and allowing me to have this opportunity.

Conall P  on 12/14/2017 2:02:48 PM

My name is Conall Persechino and I am currently a senior at Shrewsbury High School in Shrewsbury, MA. I have consistently been on the honor roll in high school every quarter, since I was a freshman and I currently hold a GPA of 3.55. I have been playing hockey since I was 4 years old. I was lucky enough to have made the Varsity team as a freshman and have loved every minute I have spent playing for my school. I have played defense and forward. While I love to play forward and earned my position on the team trying out as a forward, my coaches needed me on defense for the good of the team in my junior year. Their strategy worked and my team won the D3 Massachusetts State Tournament last year and my team went undefeated the entire season. I was voted as a Central Massachusetts Allstar. I also played on Junior and Varsity soccer in my Freshman and Sophmore year but had to give it up to focus on school and hockey. I also work in a hockey pro shop and as a hockey instructor as a means to save for college but also because I enjoy passing along my love of hockey to younger kids. I will be attending college in the fall of 2018 and just received my first acceptance this week. I will be studying Chemical Engineering. Chemical engineers work out the processes to make all types of products like food, plastics, medicines, while also helping to manage the world's resources, protect the environment and ensure health and safety standards are met. So not only will I be working in a career which really interests me, but I will also be able to make a contribution somehow, someway that may benefit people and/or our environment. A scholarship from Foot Locker would be greatly appreciated since my savings to date do not even come close to the cost of a 4 year undergraduate degree. Thanks Foot Locker for helping 20 lucky students with your scholarship program!

My name is Serha Hervey. I have played Volleyball, Basketball, Softball, Ran track, and I am currently a cheerleader. I have been on varsity for the track team since my freshman year. I have been a point guard for my schools JV and varsity basketball team. My GPA is a 3.1 and I have received honor roll awards. I received a defensive player of the year award in basketball. If I were to go to college for a sport it would be for cheer because that's what I enjoy doing the most. I love cheering for my sports team and making the crowd cheer them on. Thank you for your time for allowing me to submit my comment for you to read.

12/8/2017 1:03:32 PM

I am a senior in high school and played Soccer. I played for Varsity soccer for 2 years. I plan on going to college to earn my degree in Criminal Justice after I get my degree I will apply to the State Trooper Academy to become a State Trooper.

I am Angel Mullen. I am a high school senior and I play volleyball. I have played on varsity for three years and I have been captain for two years. My GPA is a 3.4 and I have been awarded over all MVP. I want to be able to go to college and find volleyball leagues to play in. I have a huge passion for this sport and I get the best feeling running up and down the court passing and setting the ball. Thank you so much for taking your time to read my comment.

Ashton C  on 12/1/2017 11:56:08 AM

I'm a senior in high school and the co-captain of the soccer team. I plan to go to a 4-year university and major in pre-med. I have a 3.4 GPA and I have just received a different academic reward from the Urban League.

Samantha D  on 11/20/2017 7:46:25 AM

I am 17 years old and I am the captain of the cheerleading team at Camden County Technical School. I would love to go to Rutgers Camden and join their cheerleading team. I have been doing cheerleading for over 9 years now. I have to find a way to pay for college myself as my parents don't have the means to do so. I'm a hard worker, I had to work 2 jobs and kept my grades at least a B during that time. This scholarship would help because I wouldn't have to continue to work 2 jobs in hopes of getting into college, I could focus more on my academics and athletics. Thank you for taking time out of your day to read this.

Jose U  on 9/7/2017 2:01:58 AM

I am 16 years old from San Ysidro, California trying to strive and have a better future for my family. Currently I'm attending Chula Vista Learning Community Charter High School and will be starting my fourth year in Varsity Soccer. I've been playing since I was 4 for club and school and my goal is to become a professional but with a masters just in case I don't make it. My grades have always been above a 3.5 and I need the money so I can help my parents with all the college struggle that is about to come in the upcoming weeks and months. Thank you for reading and I hope you enjoyed a small description of a young Mexican American.

Kenneth A  on 8/23/2017 11:46:52 PM

I am a 16 year old from Compton California making the possibility to make it out of the hood to have a succeeding future. We are minorities from around the way, the lower class but I want to create change with my athletic abilities. By me showing that I am a scholar and athlete, this scholar ship will motivate me in many ways. In fact I attend Compton Early College High School which I will be the first graduating class of this program. This program is set for students that aspire goals and want to make it big or college. The school pressures us in so many ways, I could be attending a regular high school like Compton High and apply for a scholar ship but I believe this program will boost me up a bit more. This is the reason why Footlocker was my choice for applying. As an athlete, I love collecting sneakers so that is the a good reason. Who ever is reading this, I hope you enjoyed it and persuades you in which why I am applying.

Cobi R  on 12/12/2016 9:28:30 PM

I play soccer, I also played football. I just want to focus on soccer in college. I'm in clubs & also in the national honor society. I help volunteer with the soccer tournament my team raised. I also help volunteer with little kids, and also to have fun. Reading to kids is great. My education is in important to me, but I also want to go pro later on in the future. Thanks for giving me the opportunity to get scholarships.

Christina C  on 12/3/2016 10:06:13 PM

I like to be very active within in my school. I play basketball, soccer, and run track. I am involved in many clubs and activities. I would need this money to extend my education into a 4-year university and excel in the medical field. Thank you
