~~ Across the duration of my entire life, throughout all of the changes, whether they be intentional or uncontrollable, baseball has always been a constant. No matter my circumstances there has never been a question as to whether my desire for baseball would thrive and persevere through the conflicts of life and paramount over the trivial aspects. From a very early age I knew that I loved baseball, and because of this, even though I may be smaller than most premier athletes, I have worked every day to become the best that I can be. Though it may not always be painless or show instant results, working out when my friends are out having fun, or taking extra hours in the batting cage will be worth it. Moreover, giving my all to football and basketball my entire life has paid off athletically and mentally in many ways. Along with the necessity to give baseball my all athletically I am aware that in order to be the best I can be I must thrive academically as well. Throughout high school my schoolwork has been a top priority and is always of high importance. In order to fully achieve my goals a high quality school is of importance to me and I know that my academics are extremely important in achieving this goal. In these ways I feel that in any college environment these qualities and ideals will not only carry on but flourish with the right environment and school. Moreover, I feel as though no matter the difficultly, I am accustomed to challenges and have never had anything given to me, in this way I will not only succeed as a part of any school but also help lead any team to success.
