      June 10th, 2014

      Dear Coach Chiara:
      My name is (your name), and I will be a senior at Jupiter High School this fall.
      Since my freshman year, I’ve run track, pole vaulted, and also played football in
      the varsity team. My track & field coach – Mr. George Somebody – has been
      instrumental in helping me develop my potential and compete in the State
      Open.  I’m looking forward to substantial improvement in my performance
      throughout college.

      I’m well aware of the great academic and athletic reputation of Let’s Go 
      University, and although you are not actively recruiting me, I feel I that I have
      the skills and motivation to make a strong contribution to your team.

      Enclosed please find a brief resume outlining my academic and athletic
      achievements.  I would be grateful if you could provide me with information
      on your track & field program, and would also be interested in learning of
      athletic scholarship opportunities.
      Thank you very much.
