Hi Coach,

My name is Ellie Gess and I play basketball for Thomas Jefferson High School in Bloomington, Minnesota. I am a 5’7” guard and I weigh 140lbs. I will be graduating in the spring of 2017, with hopes of playing college beginning the following fall. I began playing Varsity basketball as an eighth-grader, where I worked very hard to be. I enjoy being a leader on and off the court and I lead by example with a great work ethic and a positive attitude. In the off-season I play AAU for the Minnesota Fury 2017 Elite team. This is my 4th year with the Fury and my 1st with the Elite team. We were the top team in Minnesota in 2015 and look to continue that in 2016. My strengths as a player include my ball handling, being a lights out defender, and a solid scorer from anywhere on the court. For example, my 3-point percentage in high school is 40%. I made 76 three’s this year, breaking the school’s single-season three-point record (previously held by me). As a sophomore and junior I was one of only five players named to the Metro West Conference All-Defensive Team. I also earned All-Conference and and MVP awards as a sophomore and junior. As a freshman I was named AllConference Honorable Mention. The past 2 seasons I was named to the all tournament team in the highly competitive Roseville holiday classic. My biggest honor is being named captain for my junior and senior seasons. I’ve been playing basketball since Kindergarten and have never stopped loving the game. Basketball is my getaway from everything, my true passion. I am much more relaxed playing and my mind is totally cleared when I play. School doesn’t come easy for me, but I work very hard at it. My GPA right now is about a 3.1, and I am making changes to continue to raise my GPA in my next couple of years. I am a very outgoing person, and when I grow up I want to work with kids as an elementary school teacher. I would love to play for your school. I have a lot to offer to your program, because I would bring lots of energy, passion and hard work to the team. Thank you for your time and I hope to speak with you soon.


Sincerely, Ellie Gess
