Baseball has been part of my life for as long as I can remember. From the beginning of little league to travel ball to high school ball, I’ve worked hard to build a solid foundation of skills and am continually seeking ways to improve my athleticism and understanding of the game. In addition to my time on the field, school is another top priority in my life. I strive to excel in the classroom by achieving excellent grades with the goal of pursuing a thriving career after college.
Baseball has challenged me in several ways, both physically and mentally. Similar to life, baseball is filled with ups and downs and always presents lessons to learn from. I’ve learned that keeping a clear head and focused mindset helps me persevere through tough times whether I am 0 for 3 hitting or brought in to pitch with runners on base and no outs. Concentrating on these difficult situations and not getting too down on myself causes me to be a better baseball player and a stronger person in general. I’ve also overcome physical obstacles, including a broken leg and a ruptured appendix, which caused significant setbacks on my health and in my game. These hurdles have taught me to train harder and strengthen my body further than I could imagine.
While humble, I am driven to be an outstanding baseball player beyond high school. As a reliable teammate, I like to surround myself with positive people and believe that maintaining a great attitude is key to success. I am one who leads by actions and has high expectations for myself both on and off the field.
