I've never imagined going to college and not playing baseball. This has always been my dream since I was little. I have kept a notebook since I was in elementary school and listed all of my goals I wanted to achieve in baseball. My ultimate goal is to attend college and give it my all on the field. Baseball has taught me so many things. It has connected me with coaches who have served as mentors, it has allowed me to become a leader on the field, and a good teammate. It has taught me to fail and to pick myself back up and get better.
Over the last year, I have seen my confidence grow as a leader on the field. Missing my high school season due to the pandemic made me realize how much I loved baseball. When it was time for travel season, I felt so lucky to be on the field. That energy transferred to how I felt when I stepped onto the field and I felt lucky every single game to be doing what I love. I'm not sure what I will do once I can't play baseball anymore.
Being primarily a catcher, my ultimate goal for every game is to lead my team and to make my pitchers feel at ease and up to pitching their very best game. I work hard to learn all of their pitches, their tendencies and how to limit their mistakes. I want them to know they can trust me.
