My collegiate goals, as I think about them today, are to: understand life more and to gain the tools to be the positive change in this society. Graduation is a must, but not for the simple sake of having a diploma but having a life I can be proud of. Ideally, I aspire to excel in the field of science in some capacity. I also strongly desire to use College Baseball as a springboard into Professional Baseball. I feel God has given me a talent and work ethic to pursue that dream I have had since I was in diapers.
I humbly feel I’m a good candidate for your team because I think of the team before myself. I’ll put my body up for the well being of the team, to get the win or to score the extra run knowing I can’t control the results of the play but I do control my effort and hustle. I don’t blame actions or outcomes on my teammates. I consider myself a good leader because I boost my team’s confidence, try to model championship effort, always encourage my brothers and make sure the team always does what is right.
How I feel I stand out from other recruits is that I have a competitive edge and I don’t give up easily. When I start doing something, I won’t stop until it’s accomplished; that counts for baseball, training, academics, and in life. I can’t stand laziness and I always show up ready to play the game. I don’t take practices lightly and put all my effort into them. I want to work to make myself better to honor God, honor my family and for my team’s sake. I love learning and I’m not afraid to fail if in the end it makes me better. Thank you and I look forward to talking with you soon, God’s peace.
