My Sophomore year I won our teams "Clutch" award on my JV high school team. This recognition meant a lot to me because I sat on the sidelines my whole freshman year due to an injury. I worked hard to get caught up with my teammates, and when I was given the green light to start baseball again I made the most of the opportunity. Through my injury I learned I am persistent and when you are persistent good things will happen. I want to get better everyday so a college with a very competitive atmosphere will be the best for me. I believe I have the tools that will make me a valuable member of your team. More importantly, however, I have experienced adversity and learned much about myself and what it takes to be successful in a highly competitive team environment. With my hard working and competitive nature, I believe I would be a great asset to your team!
