My name is Savannah Richardson. I am 14 years old and now a freshman in high school. I have loved the game of
basketball since I was 6 years old. I started playing Little Dribblers in first grade. I live in a small town north of
Beaumont, Texas. Evadale isn't really known for much except for sports. My high school coach tells me he has been
looking forward to me playing since I was in 4th grade. As a 5'11" post who can also ball handle, it's given him some
extra options in running our offense. I also play on a select team, that experience has allowed me to step out of my
comfort zone and play with a different group of girls other than those i grew up with. I currently play on three different
teams, an 8th grade team, a 9th and 10th grade elite team and a varsity team within that select team. These teams
have allowed me to grow as a player and improve on my weaknesses while still allowing me to showcase my talents.
Sports hasn't been my only focus, my grades are important as well. I just recently graduated from 8th grade as
Salutatorian with a grade point average of 95.5. I will continue studying hard in high school as it is my personal goal to
graduate as Salutatorian once again. I realize that basketball is important to my future but my grades are what will truly
take me where I want to go.
I am very active in our local Baptist Church. I enjoy attending our youth group meetings on Wednesday nights. Being
active in our church gives me the opportunity to volunteer in many different aspects. 1) In the summer, we go to the
Baptist Encampment to clean it up to get it ready for the upcoming summer camps. 2) During the holidays, we raise
money and solicit food donations for families who are in need. 3) In the Spring, we take turns volunteering at our booth
at the annual Catfish Festival to help raise money for our community.
I'm looking forward to next summer so that I can volunteer at the hospital where my mom works. I enjoy hearing about
all the wonderful things my mom gets to do for her patients and I can't wait to be a part of that.
