Personal Statement

My name is Tobin SecuroBrown and I am a  senior at Fiorello H. LaGuardia High School of Music & Art and Performing Arts in New York City. You may know it as the school from the movie “Fame.” I am in the vocal department. As a junior, I was cast as the lead in the opera The Merry Widow. It was a great opportunity. Now as a senior I have again been cast as the baritone lead in La Belle Helene. Outside of school, I am a member of the Young Men’s Ensemble of The Brooklyn Youth Chorus. This past year we’ve had opportunities to perform with Barbra Streisand and the Kronos Quartet and we sang the National Anthem at the 9/11 Memorial ceremonies.

I am the starting catcher on my school baseball team and I bat 4th in the lineup. I have been named captain of this year's team. I am really proud of this, especially because our coach hasn't named a captain in over 4 years. Last year (as a junior) I was among the top offensive players City-wide and I led my division in RBIs, hits, average, slugging, doubles, OBP, and runs scored.  The school team had its best season ever, making it to the semi-final round of the PSAL Championships. I have played travel ball for years and have always been the starting catcher. Days we have double headers I will move to 1B for the second game. I have been named the captain of my club team this year.

I am proud of all the work I do in the off-season. The winter of my sophomore year I worked out with a pitcher from the Frontier League. He helped me improve my throws down to second on steal attempts. As a junior, I tried out for and made the roster for the inaugural season of the NYC Varsity League. This is a program organized by former MLB players. The coaches are former MLB players and current Minor Leaguers, and it ran for about 8 weeks in the fall. When this ended, I had indoor conditioning workouts run by Frank Rodriguez, a former MLB player. Frank introduced me to Ernesto Lopez, a catcher in the Diamondbacks farm system, and I worked out one-on-one with Ernesto to improve blocking and throwing. All that work paid off. Last year I caught 15 runners stealing out of 29 attempts. This year I again made the squad for the NYC Varsity League. I am also working with private hitting (Johnny Defendis) and catching (Frank Esposito) coaches, and I am excited to see how much better my game is this coming spring.

My academic goal is to study vocal performance in opera and classical music. Athletically, I am looking to be a part of a team where I can make contributions offensively and defensively. I can’t wait to play ball at the college level and see myself grow. Thank you.
