Here are the numbers that stick out to me that need to be worked on. 2/30ITM and no final tables. This means that you're going out of the tournaments way, way too early.

44VPIP means you're playing 44% of hands.. this is WAAAAAYYYYY too many. In a standard tournament, I'm looking to play about 20% of hands, but in a league, it's more like 12-15%. This says to me that you're playing way too many hands and need to fold at least half of the ones that you're playing, if not about 2/3 of the hands you're playing.

c-bet only 27 of 943 hands played says to me that you're not raising enough preflop. If I'm playing say 15% of hands, I need to be raising preflop with them 11-12% of the time. Also, whenever I'm the first to get into a pot, I need to either raise or fold, as I do not want to basically ever want to open-limp.

If I had to label a player with these stats, they're going to be marked a calling station, as they play way too many hands and are not raising anywhere near enough. The way to fix this.... fold much, much more often and be aggressive with standard raises in the hands that you decide to play.

Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.
