As long as I can remember I have played baseball. When I started growing out of “dad” ball and into high school level play I probably asked too many questions but I wanted to be a varsity starter my freshman year and I succeeded. Ever since I’ve tried to elevate my game by not hesitating to be put in any situation on the field. I still have a lot to learn and I’m still going to ask questions so be ready.
Like a lot of teens time management wasn’t my specialty but the game and practice has taught me to be a better self-manager. It has taught me how to be dedicated to the game but not overlook things like grades or family in the process. I want to continue to find ways to be a leader on the field but also off the field in school and other places as well.
I’m going to keep trying to get all A’s or at least keep my GPA as high as possible. I like school and I understand that at the next level being a STUDENT-athlete means being a great student who represents their school, sport and their town in the best way possible.
I have a love for numbers and investments and plan to spend time at college learning more about that. I want to always be around other players and compete in a high level program with other athletes who have the same goals on the field and in the classroom.
Sure, life has had ups and down for me but I’ve learned that there are people that I can lean on when tough things happen. People like my parents, good friends, teammates, coaches, God and my faith. I want to combine ALL of these things that I’ve talked about and use my gifts of being outgoing and social and not afraid to talk, intelligently, to anyone. I particularly enjoy trying to help someone else learn the game and love to learn from the best players how I can make my game better. I hope to spend my last two years of high school with other dedicated teammates who believe the same things and continue on to college baseball.
