WHY I GRIND
My name is Johnathan Porter and I am currently an 8th grader attending the Gateway STEM Academy at Summer Creek Middle school in Crowley, Texas. I currently have a 3.8 GPA and I am taking all AP courses with the hope of attending college and obtaining a degree in architecture.
I’ve played tackle football for 8 years beginning in Kindergarten because I have a strong passion for the game. During my 8 years of playing football, I have played all positions on the offensive line but my specialty is Left Tackle and Center. During the offseason I play tight end on a 7-on-7 team, participate on a YMCA swim team and train at 4th and Inches Sports Performance to ensure I remain in shape.
To prepare myself to play at the college level I have set a couple goals that will guide and motivate me to remain on track and achieve my goals which include:
- Commit to working as hard as I can in the classroom and be the best student I can be at all times.
- Commit to doing everything I can to improve my athletic performance through practice, training, attending camps, watching video and coaching/mentorship.
- Commit to representing myself, my family, my community and my school as an Athleader (Athlete/Leader).
I am a coachable young man and I return the favor by serving as a role model to young children in my community and I work toward helping them accomplish their dreams
