I am a driven and committed student athlete, giving 110% in everything I do to achieve my personal goals, as well as the goals of my team. I learned early on that to be an effective team member you have to be willing to pick each other up and rise above adversity. Approaching every experience regardless of the outcome as an opportunity to learn, grow and develop as a person, a player and teammate serves me well both on and off the field. My college plans include pursuing a degree in architecture, or sports physiology/exercise science at an institution where I can also play baseball competitively.
Baseball captured my heart at a young age. My family supported my passion for baseball; always making time for one more pitch, one more hit, or another game of catch, cheering me on every step of the way. That foundation of support inspires me to give back to players younger than myself. I enjoy sharing my love for baseball by lending a hand whenever I am able: assisting with score keeping, field prep and umpiring youth games. Derek Jeter once wisely said, "There may be people who have more talent than you, but there's no excuse for anyone to work harder than you do." That quote applies equally to my work on the field and in the classroom. Inspiring me to do another rep and review my materials for class one more time; never stopping short of giving it my all to reach my full potential. I honor the time and commitment others have invested in me by continually working hard at all aspects of my game and studies so that I may continue this journey into college.
