I am a grinder. I work hard. I am a good teammate. I am positive. I lead with enthusiasm. I love to win.
As a Freshman at All Saints Episcopal School in the Spring of 2021, I was determined to make Varsity. I worked hard in the off season and was very excited to see my name on the starting roster. In our first pre-district game in February, I was starting at catcher and felt a pain shoot down my leg. I knew it was bad. I reluctantly came out of the game and an MRI confirmed my fear. I had a L5 lower back stress fracture. I was out for the season. In hindsight, it turned out to be a blessing in disguise. First, I realized how much I love the game and want to continue playing. Second, I learned how to take care of my body better. By going to rehab regularly, I now know how to stretch and strengthen to be better as well as learned how nutrition and sleep play a role. And finally, I learned a lot sitting on the bench. I learned a lot of strategy, pitch calling, and mental aspects of the game, but most importantly how to encourage and be a leader in the dugout. I was able to work back and play in the last two games and then had an amazing summer with my club team. I led my team in most offensive categories including average, OPS, slugging, HRs, and RBIs. I played catcher, but also gained experience in the infield at first and third, and played outfield. Now I can't wait to play the rest of my high school career and at the next level.
