The path I’ve taken to realize my dream of playing college baseball has not been an easy one. I love playing and competing at almost anything. But I paid the price as a 3-sport athlete in high school. A late season football injury my sophomore year and a freak ankle injury in a varsity basketball game as a junior presented huge challenges during the most important period for baseball recruiting.
Baseball has always been my first love, and I’ve been fortunate to be a part of great teams. From the age of 8, I had to earn my way into the line-up. At every level, I’ve beaten out more talented players to earn starting roles on the team. I may not be the biggest showcase player, but I know how to play the game and I know my coaches would agree. My travel coaches taught me how to play the game the right way. My high school and college coaches have shown me what it takes on and off the field and in the weight room when no one’s around. My parents have taught me right from wrong. And I’ve learned about the dedication it takes in the class room during my junior college experience at Sinclair Community College.
I want the opportunity to be a student athlete and to play baseball for as long as I can. And I’d like my degree to open doors for the rest of my life; to come from a university with a great reputation. Although I tend to be a quiet, laid back, fun loving guy off the field, I'm very competitive inside and I believe I’m already proving I can compete at this level and that I can make an immediate impact on your program!
