Hello to all coaches viewing this. My name is Ross Caswell, and I live in Randolph VT. I am 6'3" and weigh 195 lbs. My main position is catcher, although I can play almost anywhere on the ballfield. I've been catching since I started little league, and have improved every year. I do have long legs.... but i have to say, I'm not that fast! I look to improve my speed by doing leg excercises on the off season.
Where I live we don't have an amazing team. This being said, I did make varsity as a freshman, and this is one of my most prized accomplishments. As a little leaguer I would go down to the varsity games and was determined to be one of the best on the field. My first year on varsity I held the huge responsibility of being the starting catcher. There were many new things to learn including: signs, plays, and new players. My coach told me that the way I was coming along, and the way I was able to control the team, and still bring a good attitude to the team, that I could go a long way if I kept practicing, and was determined. I'm here to tell you that I'm determined to be the best player/catcher possible.
If i could go to any one place to play college it would be somewhere that I could play year round. i'd like to go to a school that is fairly large, where the competition level is high so I would be challenged, and work as hard as possible. My family is a big family with five kids, and two are under the age of 4. My parents make ends meet, financially, but when it comes to college tuition, it will be tough for them. A scholarship would help so much! and take a huge burden off my parents shoulders. Academically I haven't thought too much about what I want to study, but I am starting to. One of my goals for becoming a college athlete is playing at the most competetive level as possible. Becoming the best athlete possible is one of my goals. I always want my team(s) to succeed, and within the framework of the team for me to also succeed,
