I attend a small private school in Suffolk, Virginia. We have never had a sports team in school history to compete at a high level. Due to the fact that homeschoolers play on our teams, we are unable to compete for State Championships. Despite this, I have still dedicated myself to become the best player I can be for my team. We have a talented school team this year and we all are striving to compete at a level that we never have before. I have learned from my high school experience that it's not all about having the nicest facilities or the biggest school. It is more important to be a leader in my community no matter how small it is and be grateful for the resources that my school has provided. I have achieved leadership skills that I never thought I could attain and I have grown to be more mature as an individual. I am looking for a college where I can demonstrate those leadership qualities both on and off the baseball field. I not only believe that I have the ability to play baseball at the college level, but I also believe that my teamwork and leadership qualities will have a significant impact on your program.
