My name is Rodney Hays (I like to be called "Rod") and I'm a 2021 graduate of Puckett Attendance Center of Puckett, Ms. My collegiate goal is to attend a Division 1 school where I wish to major in Engineering and play for their baseball team. I've played baseball for almost 6 years now and absolutely love the sport. I am a great candidate for your team because I am very competitive, yet very coachable, ambitious, hard working and determined. What may make me stand out in character is I always ask my coaches questions on how I can improve on my weakness and strive to be an attribution to the team with my strengths. I have a lot of respect for my coaches because I know they are there to teach me. I also have great sportsmanship and try to pick up my teammates. As you can see on the athletic stats, I am an outfielder (which is my favorite position on the field) and I am very fast. I strive to make a play even if it takes going above and beyond what's expected of me. (more than just a routine play). I am also a RH pitcher. I've been pitching since I was 12 years old and absolutely love it. My Freshmen year I was a pitcher for the varsity team. My ultimate goal moving into my Sophomore year is to not only get stronger and faster on the field but also strive to excel academically to achieve the grades that's required of me to be accepted into a Division 1 school. I also plan on taking the ACT many times so that by my Senior year I can achieve the required score to be accepted as well. Thank you for taking the time to get to know a little more about me and my goals for college and baseball.
