My collegiate goals and aspirations would be to gain admission into a college that would allow me the opportunity to play baseball while also graduating with a degree.
I believe that what makes me a good candidate for collegiate teams is my drive to constantly better myself in anyway I can. I think what makes me different from other athletes would be my genuine love and enthusiasm for baseball, my competitive drive, and athleticism. In the past I've had to overcome my size in baseball to still be able to compete and be competitive. Some unique characteristics and skills I bring to the team would be my athletic ability and speed, along with being able to be a utility player on the field and hit from both sides of the plate.
The same holds true academically. I truly love learning. I make a concerted effort to not only ask, but also answer questions in order to help better understand the content and improve my grades. I also pride myself on interjecting humor and wit into the learning process.
Throughout my life, I have been influenced by both family and friends. Growing up in a baseball home, I was introduced to the sport by my dad and older brothers. While I have learned many lessons from baseball, the most important has been that I can always challenge and better myself.
My goal for high school would be to first and foremost graduate--with the highest grade point average that I can. I then plan to continue expanding my knowledge by pursuing a college degree.
