Dear Coach of Villanova,

I have a strong interest in playing basketball for your program at University of Villanova in two years. In August, I will enter my junior year at Trinity Episcopal Day School in Natchez, MS. Here are some of the reasons I believe I can help your program succeed:

ü Varsity basketball my freshman and sophomore seasons

ü Became a starter as a sophomore

ü AAU/USSSA Basketball the past five summers

ü Shoot over 57% from three-point range

ü Fundamentally Sound

For years, I have been one of the top players in my age group. In fact, as a fifth teen year old I moved up this summer to play seventeen and under and 18 and under team. Basketball has been my favorite sport since I started playing competitively at six years old. I love to compete and work hard on my game all year-round. I am really looking forward to my junior year at Trinity because I feel our team has a legitimate chance to win a 1A state title again!

I believe I can compete at University of Villanova. I follow your program and I know I can contribute to your future success. I have a strong work ethic, a willingness to learn, and good study habits in the classroom. I look forward to hearing from you soon.
