Personal Statement

Since I started playing baseball I have always set goals for myself.  My first goal was to make varsity as a freshman in high school.  I put in countless hours in the cage, on the field, and on the mound and earned that opportunity.  From the first game my freshman year I was leadoff hitter for the Marshall Mavericks varsity and started at third base and played shortstop in several games.  My second goal was to help lead the Mavericks to the playoffs, but we fell a half game short of that goal as a team.  My third goal was to be Newcomer of The Year for District 16-5A, however, I took an inside pitch to my forearm a few games before district play began which broke my arm and had me off the field for several weeks.  I worked extra hard on my footwork which was all I was able to work on during that time and I came back for the last 3 series of district play and was able to earn honorable mention at 3rd base and pitcher.  I have several other individual goals regarding baseball but they all center around being the best teammate, the hardest worker, and the most consistent player I can be in order to help Marshall be the best team we can be during my time here.

My future aspirations revolve around college baseball.  Any work I can put in to prepare me for that future I am working on everyday.  Not a day goes by that I am not working on some aspect of my game to improve myself as a player and a teammate.  My parents have instilled in me a hard work ethic and have high expectations of me in the classroom as well as encouraging me on the ball field.  I love this game and have since I was about three years old when my parents noticed on an Easter Sunday that I was bored with hunting for eggs and instead picked them up and put them on a batting tee and was hitting them.  Anything I can do to get myself to the next level of baseball I am willing to work towards because it's my dream to play college baseball and get a quality education while doing so.
