Student Athlete Profile

Graham Robbins plays lacrosse for Berkeley Preparatory High School. He uses his leadership role to help better himself while also bettering those around him. As a captain on the Berkeley lacrosse team this year, I took a much bigger role in being a leader on the field. I had to overcome weakness in certain areas in order to be a good example for others on the team. I feel as though I bettered my teammates because I was always looking out for each one of them. I would always make sure no one got down on himself for an error. I believe that the only real error is not trying again because if someone messes up and never tries again, they have not learned anything from their mistake.”

Graham’s coach has seen his leadership impact his teammates positively to keep the fun in the game. “He is a motivated and hard working young man who has achieved well at school. His commitment and dedication were evident in his involvement in a number of extracurricular activities. As a valued member of the golf team his determination was well recognized and he was always prepared to put in the extra hours to ensure the success of the team. Graham was named Captain of the Golf Team for the upcoming 2015 Fall Season. In my personal interactions with Graham I have been impressed by his strong communication skills and his ability to establish a comfortable rapport with others. He comes across as confident and mature. His popularity among his peer group is testament to both his interpersonal skills and loyalty. Graham is comfortable in his own skin and a great teammate who uses his personality to bring the personality out of others.”
