The game of baseball has taught me so much in life. It has taught me how to win and lose with grace. It has taught me how to manage my time and keep my priorities straight and it has taught me that each at bat is a chance to start something great. I strive to apply all of these lessons in my life off the field as well. Life isn't always about winning but about what you can learn from an experience and how you deal with the victories and defeats that come your way.
I take being a student athlete very seriously. It has been impressed on me that the word student comes first for a reason. I work extremely hard both in the classroom and on the baseball field. I realize that playing baseball is a great privilege and I value that every time I take the field. My first job is as a student so I need to take care of that before I can be my best on the field.
My high school is Union Academy. It is a National School of Character. I am honored that my coaches selected me as the Cardinal Award recipient. The Cardinal Award signifies the best of the best with respect to academics, athletics and character. I have also been awarded team MVP.
It is my goal to take all I have learned and play baseball on the next level. I will continue to work hard, excel in the classroom and do everything I can to make that possible. With that in mind, I want to find the right college match to allow me to play baseball at the highest level possible while getting a top education.
