BIO: Max competes for the pure love of sport and has been playing competitively in football, basketball and track since he was seven years old. He competed in several regional and National Track meets and on several youth AAU basketball teams, Nike EYB in seventh and eighth grade for the Rose City Rebels and Nike EYBL Freshman year. He traveled nationally to play basketball for many years. Max has been a three-sport Varsity letterman every year since entering Grant as a freshman and a starter in every sport, every year (except he did not start in freshman year Varsity football.) In football, he won several awards his senior year, including 2nd team All-State and Conference Defensive Player of the Year, First Team All-Conference tight end, 1st Team All-Conference defensive end and team MVP. He led his team in tackles, sacks and tackles for a loss. He was also the leading receiver and had nine touchdowns. On the basketball team, Max started every game since the first game of his freshman year, 105 starts in all and All-Conference honors each year. On the track and field team, Max was a varsity thrower in every meet since freshman year was the No. 1 thrower for shot put and discus since his freshman year for the Portland Interscholastic League. In his junior season, he was the No. 1 thrower in the PIL for shot put and discus and No. 2 for Javelin. He qualified and will be competing in the Nike Outdoor Nationals in June. Max has been involved in Camp Kesem, a camp sponsored by University of Oregon students for children who have a parent dealing with a cancer diagnosis. He has attended for four years as a camper. His father was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer when Max was seven years old and is looking forward to finally coming back as a counselor when he starts at Oregon. Max has felt lucky having his dad coach him in football and track and field all the way through his senior year while still dealing with his diagnosis. Max has also loved being a part of his teams brotherhood and has always enjoyed passing on his love of sport when volunteering to help in youth clinics for each sport.
