My name is Jordan Keck. Baseball is my passion, but I am not just a baseball player. I am so much more. I am a successful student on and off of the field. Currently, I am a sophomore at DeKalb High School taking honors and AP courses. I am an active member of our school’s math team and Spanish club. I am a serious baseball player training year round and playing for my high school as well as a traveling team. This will be the fourth year of trying out and playing for traveling baseball teams. I have attended college baseball camps and showcases. I am also a starting football player for my high school team in the fall. I recently earned a black belt in Taekwondo. I enjoy being a team player and act as a role model and leader. I have learned that the key to a successful team is working together, striving to be your best while bringing out the best in others. I am the oldest of four children so my parents call me a “natural leader”. I try to be a leader in all areas of my life. By doing this, I am able to balance the academic, athletic, religious, and social areas of my life. My short-term goals are to earn the academic all-conference award this year in baseball. I would also like to letter in varsity as a sophomore. I want to get bigger, stronger, and faster. My long-term goals are to play college baseball while earning a degree in either engineering or agriculture. I hope to make a difference in the university and community where I attend college. I know that this is difficult but achievable through hard work and perseverance.
