As an international student, when you say football does that mean soccer in the US or do you play US football?

Your GPA is blocked by an emoji but if I am presuming a 3.0, if not please do follow up. If you are looking for financial aid then you are most likely best of applying to colleges that are larger, smaller LAC do not really value sports in the same way the likes of Duke do.

Most colleges will be test optional this year to protect their yield, it does not mean that they won't decide to just admit students who have the data available to them. I would suggest to demonstrate your competence you sit the tests or start studying to sit them.

When you say 'good', do you mean that you play as a hobby are you signed/a school athlete?

I would look at state schools.
