To date my greatest personal accomplishment in baseball was being named Newcomer of The Year in my district my Freshman year of High School. Not many baseball players are 4 year varsity starters in high school baseball and I had to work to earn it. My coach told me at beginning of practice that I would be on JV but given a look at varsity tournaments. By our first varsity game he had decided I was varsity level. I was put on the mound in the 5th inning of my first varsity game as a freshman with bases loaded. We went on to win that game 7-5 and from that point on I never left the field again. I was moved to starting first base and batted 6th in lineup racking up good enough stats to be best newcomer in our district. Although disappointed at the beginning of practice when I was told I would be JV I have always worked hard to earn everything I get. I never held my head down I just decided I would either change his mind or be the best JV player my town has ever seen. I faced a similar situation in football as I earned the starting QB position 3 games into my Sophomore year on Varsity. I played 10 seasons of travel baseball and have worked year round in lessons at Abilene Baseball Academy since I was 10 years old. I find baseball challenging, thrilling and there is nowhere better to be than the baseball diamond. I hope to rise to any challenge that rises as I pursue baseball at the Collegiate level.
