Hi, I am Brady Welker from Scott City, KS. I am 16 years old and a sophomore at Scott Community High School. Baseball is my passion, but I also play football and wrestle. Being a 3-sport athlete helps me compete at a high level in all sports. It also holds me accountable in the classroom all year long. I am an honor roll student and feel my work ethic shows in the classroom as on the field. I also participate in Student Council and many other school activities. One of my goals is to receive an academic scholarship along with a sports scholarship for college.
Baseball, I can’t express how much I love the game. I have played ever since I was able to hold a ball and bat. The game of baseball has taught me several things about myself and life. I have learned to be a good leader, have good sportsmanship, play as a team, and sometimes things get rough, but you must push through. Until my freshman year of Highschool I usually played, starting pitcher, catcher, or 3rd base. I grew very comfortable at those 3 positions, but my high school team needed me to step up and be the center fielder. Outfield was a whole new experience, but I listened and learned from the coaches. By the end of the season, I was awarded All League outfielder. I was also the closing pitcher for our team. That was a new set of challenges as well, from keeping my composure to handling the pressure of keeping the lead of the game or ending up with the save. I settled into the role well and was awarded 2nd Team All State Closer. I can rise to the challenge and play wherever the coach needs.
