Personal Statement

    I started playing baseball at age 9 which is later than most boys. But once I started playing, I could not get enough. During my 8th grade year, my coach recommended that I play catcher.  I am so thankful that he made this suggestion, because catching is my niche. I love throwing out the baserunners and enjoy being a leader of the game. 

    Following behind a starting catcher who is only a year ahead of me in high school has been challenging. Being the backup catcher has further developed my skills by forcing me to continue to work harder to become stronger and faster.  I am willing to give 150% to achieve my goals. I take private batting and catching lessons and am involved in a strength and agility program during and in the off season. I am determined to continue playing ball at the college level.  

    I work just as hard in the classroom as I do on the field. My study of interest is Marine Biology. Growing up in Louisiana, I have been surrounded by swamps, lakes, rivers and the gulf coast. I think that I am most interested in Conservation but will have more knowledge about the various careers paths once I begin my studies. 

    Baseball has given me confidence, but most of all, it has taught me to be humble and face adversity with determination and hard work. I know that I will be successful in attending college and obtaining a degree. I hope that someone allows me the opportunity to do so while playing the game that teaches me life lessons every day.
