Triple-Impact Competitor® Finalist, Class of 2018
Lake Wales Senior High School
Lake Wales, FL
Brooklyn’s coach tells us why Brooklyn embodies a Triple-Impact Competitor®: “Brooklyn Levine manifests the triple-impact competitor characteristics both on and off the tennis court. As Brooklyn’s tennis coach, and a teacher at his high school, I witness firsthand his commitment to his own game, his teammate’s game, and the sport of tennis. While Brooklyn embodies all three of these characteristics, his penchant for self-improvement is unrivaled. Brooklyn displays incredible conscientiousness in life evidenced by his praiseworthy balance of academics, work, and sport. Brooklyn maintains top academic accolades in the demanding IB Diploma program while holding down a restaurant service position during the school year. Brooklyn sets a goal for himself of improving each season, and for the three years I have coached him, I have seen marked improvement every time. His dedication to his game is evidenced by his long hours of extra hitting on weekends and after the practice has ended. This dedication has allowed Brooklyn to overcome a genetic disability that prevents normal range of motion with his arms and still compete at a state-level athletic ability in tennis: astounding! There is no debate; Brooklyn personifies self-improvement.”
