Some main events in my life that have made me who I am today are: becoming the player of the state in Alabama, going to church, building relationships through baseball, and having to work hard in school to maintain good grades. I began playing baseball when I was six, and from there my love of the game grew at an exponential rate. Through my years of playing baseball I have learned: how to be a hard worker both on and off the field, how to persevere through problems, and how to socialize with people that are both younger and older than me.
My academic goals for my high school and college career are to maintain my position at the top of my class. I plan to do this by taking both honors and AP classes through my whole high school career and then once in college I plan to be a straight A's student. The biggest obstacle that I've ever had to overcome to continue playing baseball is my hitting. I went through a very big slump in my eighth grade year of baseball and after that I realized that I wasn't good enough to play at the next level so I worked really hard on my hitting and I was able to improve it, and now I continue working hard every day to keep getting better as a catcher and as a hitter.
