Personal Statement

My passion for the game of baseball began when I was 4 years old, playing in a local T-ball league. Since then, I have continued to improve and develop my craft, but my underlying love has remained consistent. Over the years,  playing baseball has taught me so many lessons, including the importance of trust, teamwork, and failure on the path to success. These lessons culminated in a deep tournament run by my high school team during the 2017-2018 season, where I felt the true importance of the game on my life in so many different aspects. I believe that my mental and physical baseball skills have developed very well, and are now at a level suitable for collegiate competition. 

The basis of my success can be seen in my relentless competitiveness that I have acquired over the years. This fuels my drive both athletically and academically. I work extremely hard in the classroom as I am driven to perform to my personal standards and better than my classmates. In the off-season, I work extremely hard because I hate losing, and I want to lead my team in every way I can. My competitiveness also dictates what I am looking for in a potential college. I want to compete and be challenged, both academically and athletically.  I think that I possess qualities to compete on the collegiate stage, including leadership, work-ethic, and discipline. I am convinced that I can perform very well at the next level, and I can't wait to become an important piece of your team.
