From playing catch in the front yard with my dad as a young boy to making diving plays on the high school field with my buddies, I've loved baseball since I can remember. And the end goal has always been the same — to take my baseball game to the next level.
I'm never the biggest guy on the field, but throughout my playing years, my teammates and coaches have looked to me for leadership, character and consistency. Growing up playing shortstop, I was taught to be the vocal leader on the team — a trait that has stuck with me all through club ball and high school. Switching to second didn’t change that, and I'm ready to grow into a leader on a collegiate ball club.
I've maintained a GPA of 3.5 throughout high school while playing varsity since Freshman year — proving to my family and coaches that I have an equal dedication to academics as I do to playing baseball. Through baseball and other sports (including soccer and cross country), I have learned traits that will stay with me all my life — like teamwork, accountability, and leading by example. These traits have shaped me to not only be the top-tier ballplayer I am today, but to become a better person and to push myself to always reach my goals.
