My name is David Boisvert and I am a 6’6” RHP/3rd baseman from Charlotte, North Carolina. I turned 17 in April 2020 and have been throwing 88 to 92 mph in June, 2020. Being an athlete runs in my family with my father having played college basketball at Georgia Tech ( he is 6’8-which is what I am also projected to be). On my mother’s side, my grandfather played both college basketball and college golf.
For me, baseball has always been my passion. I am from Florida and started playing baseball at 3 years old and played year-round in Florida before moving to NC 5 years ago. This spring season, I was team captain of our varsity team before our 7-1 season was cut short. I have started on the varsity baseball team since I was a freshman. I play travel ball for the On Deck Academy.
I have a 3.75 unweighted GPA at a college prep high school. For the balance of 2020, my goal is to get even stronger to achieve my goal of throwing 95+ in 2020. I am focused on maximizing my fitness while the current season is essentially on hold. My mom is the single biggest influence on me. She is a single mom and works harder than anyone I know. She has taught me that my character means everything and that hard work and perseverance are game-changers. To that end, I look at every at-bat, and every pitch, as a new opportunity and have a positive attitude, always. While I am driven to win, I am known as a respectful player to my coaches, to umpires, to opponents and to my teammates.
It is my dream to play baseball at the collegiate level where I can contribute significantly on the field and to my teammates. I would like a baseball program where I can have an immediate impact. I will be the first to practice, and the last to leave and no one will outwork me. I have been attending a challenging college prep high school so I know what it takes to excel in the classroom. Academically, I am interested in earning an undergraduate degree in history or in business. I am not tied to any one geographic location and am totally flexible in the size of the school. After I graduate, I want to compete in professional baseball.
