My biggest influences in my life have been my coaches and my parents because they always push me to do better. They always say never to get complacent with where I am and what I've done. The idea of never becoming complacent has helped to push me on and off the baseball field. It has made me an incredibly hard worker in the classroom, on the baseball field, while training, and in everyday life.
This idea of never settling is what makes me want to play baseball at the highest level I can while achieving my academic goals of going to a very good school. I want to continue furthering my with academics while playing the sport I love.
