Personal Statement

Personally, I believe I have what every school needs. I am a versatile player that can play any position that may need me. This includes: P, 2B, 3B,SS, and OF. My coaches have taught me how to play nearly every position and how to do it well. I have been coached by some of the best in the Illinois area. I would love to help you and the team in any way possible, that would help the team win. I am a very competitive person and hate even the thought of losing or not competing. My grades are also very steady, I have maintained a high GPA throughout my whole life. I am a very coachable player who picks up on things very quickly. I love opportunities to learn the game more. My want to compete pushes my work ethic to the max. I would love the opportunity to play and compete at the next level with your help.
