2017-18 SENIOR STUDENT-ATHLETE

RESUME

BOOK


Dear Prospective Employer: On behalf of Gonzaga Athletics, it is with great pride that I present the seventh annual Senior Student-Athlete Résumé Book. This publication is a showcase of the class of 2018 Zags and the incredibly unique experiences and qualifications compiled during their careers as Gonzaga student-athletes. As our seniors embark upon new journeys in the workforce, graduate or professional school, or even volunteer programs throughout the world, these portfolios make organizations aware that the potential contribution of a Gonzaga student-athlete is extraordinary. Members of the class of 2018 are no exception to prior student-athlete graduates. These outstanding student-athletes have achieved remarkable accolades during their Gonzaga careers - athletically, academically, and in the community. As with each graduating class, we are not only proud of their accomplishments, but also of what tremendous individuals they have developed into as members of the Zag family. Their drive, compassion, commitment, creativeness, and ambition sets them apart from other student-athletes across the nation, thanks in large part to the traditions and community embraced by Gonzaga. The University’s mission states, “Through engagement with knowledge, wisdom, and questions informed by classical and contemporary perspectives, Gonzaga cultivates in its students the capacities and dispositions for reflective and critical thought, lifelong learning, spiritual growth, ethical discernment, creativity, and innovation.” As such, this publication not only offers a glimpse into the portfolios of our remarkable senior student-athletes, their careers as Zags, and the talents they offer, but also previews their aspirations for sharing their gifts and continuing their passion for success following graduation. These seniors will be leaving Gonzaga upon this spring’s commencement both with exceptional experiences and as life-long members of the Zag family. With the success they have attained and the relationships they have built at Gonzaga, we have the utmost confidence that they will have a lasting impact on any organization and community they have the opportunity to join. Thank you for your continued support of Gonzaga University and our student-athletes. Sincerely,

Mike Roth Director of Athletics


Dear Alumni & Employers, We are pleased to share with you the resumes of Gonzaga University student athletes. These young men and women have excelled in the classroom, in the community and in their individual athletic endeavors and are anxious to bring their skills to the workplace.
