Personal Statement

I have been playing tournament baseball since I was six and have played every year since on successful USSSA AA, AAA, and Major teams.  I have played on two World Series Champion teams, a State Champion, a State Runner-up, and a third-place State Champion team.  I am lucky to be able to attend a private school where I played football, baseball, and basketball from 3rd through 9th grade as a peewee and junior varsity athlete.  I am a four sport varsity athlete (football, basketball, golf, and baseball) and have excelled in different ways in each of these sports.  I am able to balance athletics (and all the practice, games, and travel that go with it) with my academic success.  I am currently the National Honor Society President competing for Salutatorian (4.33 GPA) of my class.  I am very active in church and my faith in God is very important in how I act towards others and helps regulate how I live on and off the field.

I am the starting QB for the football team after competing and earning that position during my junior year.  For the 2018-19 season, I was blessed to be Best Offense in basketball and MVP in both golf and baseball.  I was also named to the Vicksburg Post's All County team in basketball and baseball.  Although I've played extensively as a middle infielder, I have played well at 3rd and 1st base.  I was also in the starting pitcher rotation for the 2018-2019 season.  I hope to extend my athletic career in college in baseball or golf.
