Triple-Impact Competitor® Finalist, Class of 2017
Berkeley Preparatory School
Spencer Myers is a baseball and football player from Berkeley Preparatory School. Not only does he focus on his personal growth, but uses those skills to be a leader and develop younger players. “Making your teammates better and serving as a role model is the biggest occupation that a leader possesses. As a leader of my team, I have worked tirelessly to make sure I am someone that the rest of my teammates can look up to and follow. I hope to serve as someone that younger players can learn from to make themselves better. This is only possible through ultimate dedication toward perfecting my craft and showing up to practice and games every day with intent to become a better athlete. In this way, teammates can follow in my footsteps and become better players themselves. Because I embody the qualities of a leader and a successful athlete, I serve as a role model for my teammates to look up to, thus making themselves better players.”
Spencer's coach uses the words 'champion' and 'self-motivated' when describing him. “Spencer does not try to cut corners or do the bare minimum; rather he embraces his leadership role and goes above and beyond. He is a man of integrity and character. He puts his heart into everything he does. This is most evident in how he successfully and admirably juggles the rigors of a Berkeley education with playing baseball, being a member of the honor roll, starting a community service project for our baseball program and participating in various other extracurricular activities. These attributes are what comprise Spencer; also, they are what separate him from most young men. He is a remarkable, special, and unique young man. Spencer is a leader; he is a champion in every facet of life.”
