Personal Statement

Currently, I am a sophomore at John A. Logan College , a D1 junior college, in Carterville, Illinois.

My goal is to play baseball at the highest level I am able to achieve.  I would love to play for a competitive program that’s coaching staff is passionate about the game of baseball, who cares deeply about helping the players they recruit reach their personal goals, all while building a competitive team.  I am hoping to attend a college that is as competitive in academics as it is baseball.   

I take pride in being the best athlete I can be.  I am a hard worker who strives to be the best on the field and in the classroom.
