My goal is to continue to pursue my education while catching or playing right field and have been used as an effective closer as a pitcher.
As a catcher, I bring phenomenal arm strength and have the ability to aggressively defend wild pitches to calming down the pitcher and also knowing when to move fielders and call the plays and setup for pitches. I have been told I have what is unteachable as to pitching as a RHP and can make outs whether it be picking a runner on first to making sure they are caught stealing on second (during 2019 I made at least 2 outs average or more per game either picking off runners or caught stealing). I know the plays at all times and feel I excel in the knowledge of the game and am effective with my aggressive defense behind the plate along with motivating my team in spirit and coordinating defense plays. I have a consistent high on base percentage and never swing at a bad pitch. I was ranked in USA baseball on trigger to impact in Arizona and was named offensive player of the year during an undefeated high school season in 2018 all while maintaining honor roll grades. I continue to maintain a high OPS .597 for the 2019 season and was recently selected to play on one of only 3 national teams for Under Armour 16U due to my "effortless arm action on the field" coupled with my velocity and abilities as a pitcher as well as my aggressive blocking of wild pitches and knowing/calling the plays as well as being a positive team player. I recently made 22 put outs with 0 errors in the USA Baseball Tournament of the West during the first week of July 2019 and had an OPS of .899 and 2 assists and led my group in POP time and made key defensive tags at home preventing several runs and caught runners stealing. I am aggressive on the field and have a take charge mentality with defense while lifting up my teammates no matter what the circumstances are. I have always been seen as a team leader and am always rallying up team spirit. I recently made it to round two after passing rigorous athletic testing by the SoCal Mariners Scout Team to scrimmage beating out numerous top catchers in California.
I continue to work with Top Notch Training facility and workout 3-5 times per week at 5am on my own to keep in top athletic condition and train with a long toss coach as well.
