From backyard Wiffle-ball games to T-ball, my earliest memories often involve playing some variation of our national pastime. While I can't recall my first hit, I can remember the thrill of being told that I'm the hardest thrower on the field while recording my first strikeouts as a little league pitcher. The mound is where I've grown most comfortable over the years as my development took me to playing increasingly more competitive travel ball in older age groups as a solid starting pitcher on a 16u showcase team. Working hard at a regular strength training regimen to ensure I'm among the hardest throwers in any game, I also tap my 3.7 GPA to help control the game and help my team come out on top. Now, that I'm heading into my Senior year, I seek opportunities to continue my quality education while playing at a competitive D1 level.
