Since attending my older brother’s baseball games at 3 years old and wearing a uniform to watch them play, I have known that baseball was a true love for me. I started playing baseball at age 4 and I only worked harder to be the best I could be. I was not the player that complained about practice and had to be pushed to want to attend. It has always been a desire that I have. I know that playing baseball at the next level is privilege and an honor, one that requires hard work and dedication.
I am a team leader and try to lead by example on and off the field. My strong Christian background and drive to be my best has given me many opportunities which include starting 98% of the games that I have played both in school and on travel teams throughout the years.
I listen to what advise my coaches give me and strive to do the best for the team on and off the field. Coaches in the past have told me, “Having me on the field is like having a coach on the field”. This is true testimony of my coachable qualities and willingness to continue to grow and improve.
As a two-sport student athlete through middle school and now high school, I study and apply myself to the best of my ability. I have always been a student that misses very few days in class, on the diamond or on the basketball court. Many times, I finish the year with near perfect attendance along with a high GPA.
I enjoy volunteering my extra time to local Veteran’s and those in other states that have been effected by a natural disaster. Most of my volunteer time is with High Socks for Hope. I have been fortunate that one of the directors of High Socks for Hope is from my hometown which allows a lot of the work to begin here. It gives me the opportunity to assist an organization that I believe is doing great things.
In order to get an early start on my college career, I enrolled in The University of Alabama Early College in October 2018. I am taking an online course each semester while finishing high school. I want to attend a college where I can succeed academically as well be part of a team to continue the game that I love. I am open to options as I look for the right college to attend to meet these goals. I feel like I can add value to any program out there looking for a talented student athlete.
