Dear Coach Thompson:
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.

(Sign your name)
