Ever since I can remember, I have always wanted to play competitive baseball. When I was 6 and was too young to play with my friend in the older 7 year-olds, I tried to convince the little league coach to let me play with them. When my other friends were still playing 46/60 at age 11, I challenged myself and was already playing on a 60/90 field for a travel team. I've always been considered to be a leader of any team I've been on, and am one to always quell tensions in a dugout rather than start them. Academically, I have always been at the top of my class. At Xavier (my high-school) I am an Ignatian Scholar, take all-honors/AP classes. I plan to go to a very selective college to hopefully play college baseball. I have worked hard to be where I am both Academically and Athletically- and I hope to continue to work hard to achieve growth and success at college and for my college team.
