Personal Statement

College baseball drives my physical, social/emotional, and academic development to earn my potential both on the field and off the field. Born with a ball in my hand and driven by my competitive nature, I played three sports (baseball, basketball, football) a year for 11 years.   

In Spring 2019,  I served as a starting pitcher and closer for my high school varsity program as a sophomore. Highlights from travel ball included throwing a no-hitter and a perfect game.  As a high school sophomore playing varsity, I was put in against arch-rival with bases loaded striking out the side and the next three batters in 15 pitches the following inning. Although COVID stripped away my junior year of high school ball, I've been working hard and now through a split-finger fastball in addition to a two-seam, four-seam, change-up, and cutter.

Summer 2020,  I'm 17 years old playing  18U travel ball for Diamonds 18U Prospects coached by Rob Hamly in Grand Rapids, Michigan. In 2019, I also played Basketball for the GR Storm  AAU team as a forward and earned All-Conference Honorable Mention for our high school team.  I'm tall, but also strong, fast, and coordinated and enjoyed slam-dunking a basketball a few times this year.

Since Kindergarten I've participated in the K-12 Spanish Immersion program taking all of my coursework in Spanish through sixth grade and continuing this rigorous pathway at the secondary level taking two high school courses yearly to grow closer to being bilingual in Spanish/English.  During my senior year, I've been selected to serve as a "GameChanger" with the Michael Sadler Foundation (former Michigan State University kicker from my high school) mentoring immersion elementary students on important pillars of Mike's character.
