Hello, My name is Cody Rossman. I am in the 12th grade and I attend Sapulpa High School in Oklahoma. My goal is to play baseball at the collegiate level and earn a degree in accounting and if given the opportunity play professionally. I am 6'3 and I weigh 205 pounds. I am a right handed hitter and I throw right handed. My primary position is Third base and First base my secondary position is pitcher but I am more than willing to play other positions. One thing I was raised to do and love to do is compete. I will compete against any team and anyone no matter the score or circumstances. Every time I face someone, whether it is in the batters box, on the mound, or in the field, I believe I am going to beat that person in front of me. The number one rule I have is respect. Respect the game, respect my coaches, and respect my teammates. Without great coaching throughout my whole life I would not be the player I am today. Something else I love about baseball is the relationships I am able to build with my teammates. My high school team has an amazing team chemistry that I hope to be a part of in college.
Like most kids, I started playing baseball at the age of four. This is when the love of baseball started for me. I played varsity baseball beginning my freshman year. Although I struggled early, the experience has made me a better ballplayer and given me great confidence. I will start at first base and will be one of the four pitching rotation starters.
I believe hard work should not just be put in on the field but also in the weight room, the batting cages, in the classroom, and before and after practice. I am a cage rat and love to get as many reps as I can. The hard work has paid off in the classroom where I have earn a 3.85 unweighted GPA and a 4.17 weighted GPA. My ACT score is 24 and I am currently taking, and have taken college courses at Tulsa Community College. .
In closing, I want to thank any coaches who have taken the time to read my personal statement. I look forward to hopefully talking to you in the future. I am more than willing to come to your school and work out for you. Good luck this spring.
