My name is Allen McGougan, I am 5'7 and weigh 190 pounds. I've played baseball since I was four, and I have nothing but passion for the game. I am now currently a Senior at Douglas Byrd High School. By playing baseball I have learned that the game is more mental than physical. With every play you have to know what to do in any situation. My goals are to graduate high school and go to college and I hope to play college baseball. What makes me an hardworking candidate is that I push my myself to 110% in every game and practice. I am a team leader and I try to lead by example and encouraging my teammates. I leave the field with my head held high knowing that I did everything I could to help my team win. Thank you for the taking your time to read my personal statement.
