Dear USJF,

This letter is in regards to the USJF National Male Youth Athlete of the Year,
which the USJF awarded me at the USJF Jr. Nationals Irvine, California. I
would like to thank you for this award. It is nice to be recognized for my
accomplishments. My goal is to work hard to improve, so I can represent the
award well. I really appreciate the USJF acknowledging their athlete’s
hard work and effort in the sport of Judo.

Sincerely,

Michael Eldred
