Personal Message

My name is Matthias Algarin, a class of 2020 Athlete from Pierz Healy High School in Pierz, Minnesota. If I were to best describe myself in a few simple words, I’d say I’m a fierce competitor. Ever since I was young I competed in everything I could, striving to be the very best. Whether it was on the field, on the track, or in the classroom I did everything I could to be the best. My desire was not just at the local or state level, but I wanted to be the very best in the country. In 8th grade I reached this elite level, ranking #1 in the country for the class of 2020 in both the Long and Triple Jump.

Shortly after achieving that status, my success was derailed by a serious femur fracture. The recovery was long and arduous, but 18 months later I was back to an elite level. Unfortunately, that recovery time left me a virtual unknown in recruiting circles. During that time I was unable to attend camps, combines or track meets, making no name for myself.

My first healthy season back I turned out a 4.47 in my 40, people at the competition seemed shocked. They wondered who I was and where I came from. Later that year, when I averaged 25 yds a reception and posted 250 yards in 2 playoff games on 6 total carries, people were shocked and wondered if I was some kind of “late bloomer”. This indoor track season when I jumped 23’-2” in my long jump, everyone said the same thing. The fact is I’ve always been here, clawing and fighting my way back to prominence.

Even though my injury took precious time away from me and I only have a few short months to make a lasting impression, my fierce competitive nature keeps me motivated toward the prize. So if your looking for a dedicated playmaker with grit and backbone, then I’m your man. I’m a 6-1, 170#, 4.4 running, 300# benching, out of the gym jumping beast from Minnesota who isn’t afraid to run over, around or through you in a blizzard. I’m at the top of my class with a 4.0 GPA. I’m the type of kid who leads by example, makes no excuses and brings out the best in others. I love my team, my family and my Lord. I want to be the man my Dad is and inspire my children to dream beyond themselves.

I hope you will take a closer look into my life and choose to recruit me. Thanks for your time.

Matthias Algarin
