Student Athlete Profile

Charlotte Tuohy is a basketball and flag football player from Robinson High School. Charlotte learned from a young age that sports are not about winning, but rather about learning life lessons and becoming a better person overall. “Through sports, I have learned valuable lessons about competition and the strength of a team. Over the course of a single season there are many things I do in order to make myself the best athlete I can be. I run and I jump, train and condition, try and try again. But in the end, none of these things make me a better person, just a better player. A true athlete allows the game to transform them into the best version of themselves. Sports have allowed me to better myself. I have become unswervingly loyal to my team, my friends. I have learned to compromise and sacrifice for the good of the team. Sports have changed my worldview, allowing me to recognize that it is not winning that matters but how you win and who is beside you when you reach the ultimate goal.

Charlotte's teachers and coaches describe her as an 'intellectual player', 'committed', and 'excellent role model.' “Charlotte is always very polite, respectful and ready to learn. Learning comes very easy for her, she is quick to pick up new material, and take it to another level. Charlotte never settles for just ordinary, she strives for excellence at all levels. Charlotte is a leader both on and off the field. I have seen her take charge in any situation, to help others and to trouble shoot an idea or a problem. In sports, she also gives her all, never allowing anything to bring her or her teammates down. Charlotte is an outstanding young lady with high moral character, who follows through with her commitments, and is capable of completing any task or project with her utmost integrity and passion.”
