My name is James Wert. I'm from Northern Ohio, and as the title says I'm attempting to get into the United States Naval Academy. I am currently a Junior in high school and look forward to going through the application process, and starting the process of getting my Representative's nomination in the Spring. If I make the Academy my goal is to earn one of the Marine option slots. I'm real big into sports, but I'm not one of those natural born freak-athletes. I've had to work for every bit of athleticism I have. I have an okay 1 1/2 mile time at 11:45, I can do over 100 sit ups in 2 minutes. I play football at Outside Linebacker, and I run the 100m and 200m sprints in track along with my best event the long jump. Please ask any questions you can think of.
