Growing up as a kid, I've always had people to push me in the right direction. I had reck ball coaches who pushed me to start pitching and a dad who made me try out for a travel team. Along with these influences I've made good decisions with the people I am friends with as well. They push me to do well on and off the field and to be a person with good character. I am fortunate to have such good people in my life that can guide me to my dream of playing college baseball with a team that I enjoy.
