My name is Sean McDevitt, I am 6’ 01”, 175 pound senior student at St. Rita H.S. in Chicago Il class of 2020. I feel that I am a very good student who strives to accomplish a high G.P.A. and maximize my opportunities as a student. I play baseball for the Mustangs, and I am rostered on the varsity team . I play summer baseball with Top Tier in McCook, Il and have been apart of their organization since I was eight years old. I began weight, and speed training, with EFT, and St. Rita H.S. throughout the summer, and fall of 2017. Within that time frame, I gained 20 pounds, and grew several inches in height. This has helped me become more confident on the field, and has motivated me to work harder, and develop into a fundamentally sound competitor.
I'm a right handed batter. My primary position is shortstop, but I have also played second, and third base. I have been asked on occasion to play an outfield position and was surprised at how relaxed I was playing in that role. My strength comes through when I'm at the plate. I am maturing as a more patient hitter, and am trying to understand what a hitting approach really means to a hitters success.
As I have matured in life, and as a baseball player, I realized that being a great teammate is very important. Not only for my success, but for the success of the team. I am a believer that a positive attitude will create positive results. Each individual doing his part as a player, and supporting his teammates achieve their goals will help create a positive, and infectious winning attitude.
I have aspirations to play at the next level. Having played for competitive programs such as St. Rita H.S. and Top Tier baseball, I am looking for opportunities to continue along a winning path. I love the game of baseball! I feel that I am a great teammate, and competitor who understands that my coaches are the authority, and bring an intellect to the game that I have yet to experience. Knowing that there is more to the game motivates me to work hard, and have fun playing baseball.
Thank you coaches for taking the time to look at my profile, and read my personal statement.
