I simply would like to continue my academic and athletic careers at the next level where I can continue to grow as a person, professionally and as an athlete. I believe that I would be a good candidate for a team due to the fact that I work extremely hard at the sport simply because I am passionate about it. While I play other sports recreationally, baseball has been the only sport that I have ever played in teams since I was 5 years old. Being the son of a coach and a former Marine, I have learned things beyond the basics that allows me to be a good player and teammate. The discipline, focus and dedication necessary to succeed have been taught to me and I display those in the field by leading by example.
