At age four, my dad began teaching me to play baseball and basketball (he played college football, baseball and ran track). Both sports have become my passion. Through sports, I learned the value of commitment, hard-work, goal setting, and visualizing success. Two years ago, these values were evidenced by my Middle School Basketball Coach which named me the "Most Valuable Player" on my 8th grade basketball team! Last year (2018/2019 season), as the starting point guard on my JV High School Basketball team we played in a Varsity tournament and I was selected to the "All Tournament Team" by the other five coaches (averaged 17 points/game). This is the highlight of my basketball career thus far! Currently (2019/2020 season), as a Sophomore, I am the starting "shooting guard" on the Varsity basketball team.
During the July 23-25, 2020 Texas Premier 16u State Championship Baseball Tournament I was selected to the "All-Tournament Team" (32 teams)! Spring 2018, my Travel Team Coach named me "Most Valuable Player" of our tournament in Waco, TX for my pitching performance over the weekend. As a Freshman (2018/2019 school year), I was the starting left fielder on the Cooper High School Varsity Baseball team. During the summer of 2019, I played on a select baseball team (West Texas Angels) and was clocked at pitching speed of 84 mph (at age 14) during 5-Tool tournament at Texas Christian University (TCU).
My parents, both of which went to college, have impressed upon me the importance of education. At this point, I am interested in pursuing a degree in Aerospace Engineering or Business.
This year I am a Sophomore at Cooper High School in Abilene, TX. I am VISUALIZING SUCCESS in my personal life, the classroom, on the diamond and on the court!
My ultimate goal is to obtain my college degree and play one or both sports in college.
