I am a male high school athlete applying for this scholarship because from freshman year to now (senior year) I have played on the football, basketball and lacrosse team while keeping my GPA above 3.0 (Currently 3.77). Sports has always been my first love but I also work hard academically. I work as hard as I possibly can to be the best for the sports that I play. I hate losing whether its in sports or video games or a simple card game, that's how high my level of competion is. I'm always putting my brother up whether they make a good play or mess up on one! I'm a BIG team player. I don't care of scoring all the time. If I can help my team win that's what matters most! I love sports and I don't know where I'd be without it.

I'm applying to this scholarship, because I believe that I could have a chance to get it.

Unfortunately I had to quit the mexican team in order to concentrate in school, but I still compite for my school team and I am pursuing to be recruit to a great university. I believe this scholarship will help me get to my goal, and that is why I am applying.

I am applying for this scholarship because I believe to have the talent for this sport of boxing. It is my passionate sport and i love it. I have been boxing for 3 years now and even doing small training's or workout by sparring with cousins and friends. I hate losing, I've been playing football and since it's a team-effort sport, i love my teammates, i still do but i hate it when someone gives up on a play while other people are giving all of their efforts and strength to play. This is why i hopped onto boxing, i control my own fate. I win, i win and if i lose, i give more next time.

Sara R  on 9/3/2020 8:03:02 AM

I am a female hockey player. I have been playing hockey since I was 5 years old and I am now a junior playing at a prep school. I would love to play hockey in college after I graduate. Hockey has been my motivation for everything throughout my life. It helps me manage my time, and teaches me so many life skills every single day. Women's hockey is starting to grow and I want to be a part of that change. I want to support the growth of women's hockey by playing at a collegial level. I have played varsity hockey all my life and it is a very big part of me!

Ashley S  on 8/5/2020 1:04:24 PM

I will apply as soon as the application is available. My primary goal in life is to pursue a career in veterinary medicine. Working toward my dream, I am currently enrolled in the Medical Science Academy at Valencia High School where I hold a 4.25 GPA. This program allows me to gain experience working alongside athletic trainers to administer first aid at sporting events. By the time that I graduate, I will have over four hundred hours of work-based learning and 300 community service hours. Another one of my extracurricular activities is playing softball, which I have enjoyed for over eleven years. My travel ball experience has given me exposure to many college campuses and meeting with countless softball coaches. My athletic performance is responsible for obtaining a verbal commitment at age 15 to Wilson College in Pennsylvania to pursue a career in Veterinary Science. Although I was born and raised in southern California, I look forward to discovering new places and the opportunity to make new friends. Thank you for your consideration, any financial help would be appreciated.

Yazmeen R.  on 8/2/2020 8:21:13 PM

Hello, my name is Yazmeen R and I'm entering my Senior year at Hillsdale High School! This scholarship is a great opportunity for me because Iv'e been playing basketball for around 8 years and would like to attend a 4 year college. My GPA has always been between a 3.5 - 3.8 due to my perseverance and habits of positivity. Iv'e played through school all my years so far on the Varsity team and women's club basketball through AAU and received many medals for those tournaments. My team and I even won second place in AAU Nationals and Iv'e received the coaches award during my Sophmore year of high school. Due to covid 19, my Senior basketball season got pushed to a Spring instead of Winter sport, but that's not stopping me from trying to become team captain. Iv'e taken a course online about leadership and have continued my faith into a life of confidence, bravery, and independence since that was something I struggled with ever than before. I really love to exercise and eat well so that my lifestyle is as healthy as can be. I would be so excited and full of great/positve emotions if I were to receive this scholarship. It would definitely give me a push going into college, knowing my hard work and talent has payed off. It's so awesome that people like Foot Locker are giving away free money to those he really do deserve it! If I didn't receive this award, it wouldn't mean the end to my life, rather a new start to new beginnings and continuing my hope and faith in God's hands. I belive everything happens for a reason and will continue to keep up the positive thinking into this scholarship. :)

Vincent Z  on 8/1/2020 11:56:35 AM

I am applying for this scholarship because I want to swim in college and hopefully make it far in swimming. I have been swimming since sixth grade all the way to my senior year. I always knew that it was the sport for me, It helped me when I was sad or stressed it because of school, I love the way it makes you feel before a competition and it also helped me become mature and become a better teammate. I have swam in Colombia for a national championship to represent the capital of Colombia so I hope I could keep getting better and hopefully one day make it far in that sport even if that’s to coach kids and teach them all the things I’ve learned from all the coach’s. Thank you for reading this and hopefully I have a chance a winning this because it would help out me and my family for paying college tuition.

Tiffany L  on 7/25/2020 5:14:00 PM

I am applying for this scholarship because I want to go to Rice University and play soccer there. Playing soccer and going into this university to get in a program for my specific study will be accomplishing. They have a neuroscience program that I am interested in and I will get to strengthen my skills in soccer there as well. It will be challenging but worth it at the end.

Amir-Said Shermatov  on 7/21/2020 3:40:34 AM

Although, I’m already a student at Webster University, it will be extremely difficult to earn and save money for tuition payments while, at the same time, constantly training and improving my sports career. Receiving a scholarship or grant would allow me to focus and maintain high marks in my studies, while also allowing me the time I need to achieve my goal of becoming an Olympic wrestling champion. I ask that you please consider me for your scholarship program so that I may achieve full ability in my future sports and business careers.

Arianna T.  on 7/14/2020 1:33:41 PM

I'm applying for this scholarship because I would like to have achieved the idea that I could gain something beyond educational matters. When I play sports such as; tennis for school, badminton, soccer, and so many more. I feel as if I become a whole new person because I learn so much by playing different sports.I learn technical skills whether its for keeping score, or even if it's just watching the sport, I feel like if I got the scholarship then it would benefit mean a lot financially. Thank you for reading this!

Sara Rich  on 6/24/2020 1:00:54 PM

I will be applying for this scholarship because this would greatly help my family's financial situation in regard to sending me to college. I have been playing Volleyball since my 8th-grade year at my local high school and I will now be a rising senior. Every little bit of money would definitely help me in pursuing my dream to become either a Veterinarian or a Pediatrician.

Evelin M  on 6/23/2020 6:06:28 PM

I am a lacrosse player looking forward to playing in college, I am currently choosing between an instate college and a out of state college, I am hoping for the out of state college because it is beautiful and it is a really good college with a nice lacrosse team but it is expensive. My parents are divorced so I only live with my mom. I am the only member of the family in history that will be going into college with an athletic scholarship. I am looking forward to studying sports management and currently training for the lacrosse team. I want to work hard for college for my parents because they never had the chance to go to college or get a good career and all they’ve asked from me is to study and go for a future with no worries of not having enough money to pay for bills or necessities. Thank you for the opportunity.

lydia asamoah  on 5/19/2020 8:23:22 PM

I am applying for this scholarship because I am a freshman in post-university Waterbury CT. My name is Lydia Asamoah and I’m 19 years of age. I lost both of my parents at the age of 8 years. I didn’t get a chance to see my mom because she passed away when she gave birth to me. My dad passed away when I was 8 years and I was raised by my grandma who was 50 years of age. when growing up I was not happy because life without parents it’s hard, but I think God knows the reasons why he took them away. I have been playing soccer for 10 years and have a lot of experience, I have won so many awards. I did not get a better education when I was a kid but now that I am getting an education I want to learn hard and give it to the poor and the community. I am also facing a lot of financial challenges in my life because I don't have a family members and also don't have anyone to help me. Thank You!

Isabel L  on 5/19/2020 10:19:47 AM

Sports have been a part of my life for as long as I could remember. I have played softball, soccer, basketball, and I do cross-country and track now. I have been so grateful for all the opportunities that sports have given me. I am now understanding the mental side of the sports and how much that plays a roll in an athletes performance. I have changed my mindset from being fixed and fearing failure to a growth mindset and learning that one race or game does not define me. Sports have taught me that no matter how I do in my race or a game I am loved and my parents just want what is best for me, even if that takes them yelling at me when I do not do so well, I know they have a purpose for it. If I got this scholarship I would use it to go into athletic training, because helping people not just physically but also mentally sounds exciting and something that would make me happy in the future.

Lariana P  on 5/14/2020 6:22:29 PM

I will going into my senior year of high school at Leeds and to receive this scholarship would be a huge blessing for me and my family for many reasons. Through the years I have played basketball, volleyball, soccer, track and field .When I graduate I hope to continue playing basketball because it is something I truly enjoy and it makes me feel alive through all the hard times. I hope I am chosen because it would mean a great deal and would make all things more possible.

Trenton Williams  on 5/6/2020 1:28:26 PM

It would just be a wonderful blessing if I were to receive this much amount of money for college.

Kevin L Jones  on 5/1/2020 9:12:03 AM

I'm applying because It's been my first time in five years to be in sports and I've surprisingly excelled. I have had mostly A's with a B I'm a male cheerleader and I have made it on to my high school as well as my All star team. I was also Awarded MVP award because of my hard work ethic and talent as a cheerleader. My track team High jump coach was very interested in my ability and believed I could do very well. Sadly due to the Global pandemic our season got canceled but I was able to jump 5'8 and i'm 5'7 which I know isn't saying much. But it was also going to be my first year I was also tied as the best jumper with their jumper who had been jumping for years. I honestly had a lot of fun and high hopes for track this year. What I really plan to do if i get this money is to pursue both a career in marine biology as well as a career in music and performance because I've had a great talent for music and dance. As well as great interest in the science of the ocean. Since I was a child I remember just being astonished by how little we know about the ocean. It's astonishing how much this world has that we don't know about. But I want to show my mystery and my story with my music and my story. Though I love bot. My passion is music and I want to impact the world with my music though if I don't find Trust worthy opportunity I'll have to Set up a foundation career before I focus on my dream. Though even if I do get that opportunity I will still go to college because my education is important. because anything could happen and just to learn more about something I actually do like is a great privilege and opportunity.

Areeza A  on 4/30/2020 3:49:32 PM

Anybody can say they absolutely love the game of basketball or whatever sport they may play but do they love the process. The process of getting there to fulfill their dreams. The hard work, dedication, sweat, tears, pain, stress, commitment to fulfill a dream, is what I love. I love the feeling of getting things done the burning sensation of your feet when you've been going at it for a whole day at a basketball camp or just even at practice, shooting like till your arms feel like it's about to fall off, pushing through those moments will make a better athlete. I strive to push and be the best I can possibly be, I give it my all being a student-athlete. Although we may achieve good grades and give the beautiful game of basketball all we got; we fall short. College is expensive and I may not be 6'5, gifted with a natural athletic built, but I give it my all to the best of my ability off and on the court. I may as well get into a division three school but all that hard work, the process of getting there will not be able to happen because of the lack of money my mother and I have. The financial assistance that I have the opportunity to obtain will be greatly appreciated.

kirstan b  on 4/27/2020 9:42:16 PM

I am applying for this scholarship because I will be attending Eastern University this fall. I'm trying to play college soccer. I've been playing soccer since I was 5 years old. I absolutely fell in love with it. On top of playing soccer throughout high school iv'e played basketball, softball and have done marching band. In top of all my sports iv'e had to overcome a lot of health issues with my kidney problems. I can also use the financial assistance thank you.

Carson Skinner  on 4/14/2020 6:55:03 PM

This would make a huge difference in my life, coming from a household with a single mom. She worked and went to school with two kids and now she serves as a cop for Pinellas county and breaks her neck to provide and keep us above water everyday. She goes above and beyond everyday for not only me but my brother and everybody she is around in her daily job. Providing for 2 kids and trying to get them off to college can be very hard but my brother went to college for football and was lucky enough to get a full ride. My route is a little different I have a opportunity to go to school on a basketball scholarship but I have to pay some of my tuition. This money would do not only me a favor but my mom and help her on school costs.I get my strength from my mom if she can raise us on her own then I can go out in the world and go out and get what I want for my life. This money would answer prayers and be a blessing to me for getting my college started and moving on. I value education very much because I need it for sports and also for my future, in order to keep myself up in this world. God works in mysterious ways and can bless me at any moment and I believe in him a whole lot. This is a very good opportunity to come across and I hope it pays off.

Kayla H  on 4/7/2020 9:38:42 AM

I've been playing softball since I was five years old and last summer was lucky enough to get recruited by two amazing coaches. This year I got to play my first-ever collegiate game at the University of North Florida. With that, I was able to get an athletic scholarship but now I'm stuck paying for the rest on my own, I'm applying for this scholarship because I want to continue my academic and athletic career without struggling to pay each year. After completing college, I want to help student-athletes in need and make sure they have no worries besides finishing classes.

Chandler W  on 3/12/2020 4:13:43 PM

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.

So as of right now I will really appreciate it if I had the help to go to school in Sports management.

gwyn b  on 3/6/2020 6:46:15 AM

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

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!

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.

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.

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.

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!

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.

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.

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
