MESSAGE FROM ISANDRO

My name is Isandro Jimenez, and I attend Edgewood High School in Madison, Wisconsin. I am a 6-foot-0, 185-pound 2021 point guard. I have a 3.935 GPA (30 ACT) and would like to study business/entrepreneurship or athletic training/kinesiology in college. As a sophomore and junior, I was the starting point guard on the varsity team (15.8 ppg, 40% 3-pointers, 80% free throws). I led our team in 3-point shooting percentage and led our team in free-throw shooting percentage. I was named Honorable Mention Badger South All-Conference both years. 

Some things that make me special are I am the leader of my team. In the weight room, I can dead lift over 425 pounds, bench over 215 pounds, and I have a 32-inch vertical. In the off-season, I do strength, speed and agility training with a trainer with experience training collegiate athletes. The program is called Elite Strength, and I train in Elite Strength four days per week in the off-season. During season and off-season, I get in the gym every day for multiple hours, no matter if we have practice or not to work on my game. Last summer, I also worked as an Intern at Sports AdvantEdge in Verona, WI under former Wisconsin Badgers strength coach Brian Bott.  

I work hard in school, and I take school very seriously. I was recently honored for academic excellence for maintaining a 3.935 GPA. I am a member of the Edgewood High School Honor Society, National Honor Society and the National Society of High School Scholars. I carry a challenging academic schedule, having taken four advanced classes (Honors Chemistry, Accelerated Algebra 2, Honors Physics and Honors Pre-Calc), and I am taking AP Calculus and Honors Accounting as a senior. I have taken many science courses, including Human A&P and Advanced Athletic Training. I believe it’s equally important to have a strong work ethic in the classroom and on the basketball court. I’m starting to explore colleges to find a college where I can play ball and get a strong education.  

In addition to thriving in school, I do regular volunteer work for my community and have many volunteer hours. I have 120 volunteer hours as a high school student.  I volunteer for a challenger baseball league where I am a Big Buddy to a person with physical challenges. I was nominated by my coaches to serve on the Edgewood High School Leadership Council. This year, I helped remove sandbags from local homes as a result of severe flooding, and I volunteered for local fundraising events. As a member of the basketball team, I volunteered to work the scoreboard at various youth tournaments.  Finally, as an Edgewood High School student, I participated in Edgewood In The Community Day, which gives students the opportunity to serve the community in a variety of ways. Service is an important component of leadership, and I believe it’s important for young leaders to give back to the community, because the community does so much to support our schools and teams.
