My whole life I've been taught that nothing will ever be handed to me. If I want something bad enough, I work with the right mindset and dedication to get there. Working harder than everyone else is what has gotten me to where I am right now. Continuing with my work ethic will push me in the right direction not only on the baseball field, but in life. The way I present myself on the field, in the classroom, and in public can be seen by others as a path to follow. Being a leader for myself along for my teammates is where the best success will come from.
