I have to credit my bigger, stronger, faster older brother by 3yrs Jake, for the super competitive person I’ve become. Growing up, no matter the sport we were playing, he would always win, never letting up, which drove me to work harder and want it all the more year after year. It may sound cliché’, but that daily competition is like building a muscle. It taught me that if I desired to win, (which I do more than anything), that I needed to want it more than anybody else in the dugout, on the field or on the mat. That mentality carries over into life in general for me. I know that if I want to reach my personal goals, I need to put double the time, effort and mental focus into academics, strength and conditioning, diet and constantly learning how to play baseball to the best of my own my abilities.
Being a two sport athlete, (wrestling being secondary), I learned to never underestimate any opponent, on the field or on the mat. I play my heart out, give everything I’ve got and want to succeed in every play, and with every pitch, more than anyone else I know. Every day, I’m running, working out and in the backyard cage, hitting and putting in the work in order to get to the place I want to be as a player. I’m playing baseball a minimum of 5 days per week during the summer either traveling with my CCB team all over CA and AZ or picking up local games, when I’m home. It is in my blood, part of who I am and who I intend to be, while continuing my education throughout college.
I've held an average GPA of 3.75 throughout high school, scoring a 1030 on my PSAT, and plan to take the SAT in August and October. My plan for college is to major in Business with a focus in Sports Management.
