Sports have always been a huge part of my life. One of my many accomplishments is winning a highly competitive conference championship on my high school baseball team. We started off slow with two losses in our first three games but learned from our mistakes and only lost one other game the rest of the season. One of the best lessons I have learned from playing sports, especially baseball, is that failure is a part of everything. The real gains are made if you learn, or better yourself from those mistakes. This was a concept I struggled with when I was younger. After I finally learned to fail, I bettered myself as a leader and a player.
Along with a great team and coaching staff, something I am interested in is a great education. Education has always been one of my many values and it has always been a goal of mine to graduate with a degree. I consistently challenge myself in the classroom by taking honors and AP level classes.
Not only do I play baseball competitively, but one of my main goals is to be the starting quarterback on my high school varsity football team as a sophomore. Last year, as a freshman, I led the sophomore team as the quarterback to a 9-0 season. All year round I stay competitive by playing football and by lifting. I work hard in the weight room, trying to break personal records every weekday during the off-season.
