My name is Ashton Horchem from Limestone Community High School in Bartonville Illinois. I have been playing baseball from the age of 5 and at a competitive level for the majority of those years. I have been fortunate enough to play up 1 to 2 levels throughout many of those years including 3 IESA State title runs from my 6th grade to 8th grade year where I was a starting center fielder and lead-off hitter for those teams. Continuing into my Freshman year of High School, I was once again fortunate, and grateful, to be pulled up a level and perform as the starting center fielder and lead-off hitter. I have always prided myself on my speed and ability to turn a single into a double and triple on the base paths. My batting average, on-base, percentage, and steals have always led, or been at the top at the completion of a season, but I would have never been able to accomplish this without a great group of teammates, coaches, and strong support from my family and friends.
I am currently a 3-sport athlete, but baseball has always been my passion growing up. I have a daily set of goals that allow me to achieve my objectives through hard work and practice. I truly enjoy the tough situations in a baseball game and the excitement they bring. My dream for college would be to play on a very competitive team, surrounded by a great group of teammates and coaches, while getting my business degree and preparing for the next phase of life.
Thank you for taking the time to review my profile. It would be a privilege to have an opportunity to prove myself, both athletically and academically.
