I am a 16 year old Junior, who loves baseball. But, that's the recurring theme here, I'd imagine. I'm also much more than that, and I hope these individual characteristics will be what propel me to the next level, in sports, in education, in life.
My twin brother Tanner and I were born early, very early, and the repercussions of that have been a major influence in my life. I caught up with the rest of the crowd, but Tanner has Cerebral Palsy, and lives his life from a wheelchair. Having this as a daily part of my life, has made me mature at a faster rate than others my age. I see obstacles in a different way, and am able to navigate problems in a straightforward manner. I think this benefits me both on and off the field.
I do want to have a great career in baseball, I do have high aspirations for my education, but mostly, I want to be a person who makes a positive impact on others. Learning and growing from each challenging situation is what makes life fun, interesting, and impactful.
