Personal Statement

I began playing competitive baseball at around the age of 8, playing in a California little league before that but not really understanding the work ethic that came with the game.  I started when my family moved to Cedarburg, Wisconsin after a business opportunity was offered to my dad.  I had to get oriented with the school system, make new friends, and get involved with sports programs at the same time; luckily, we found a select baseball league as well as the Cedarburg Mercs - my first official club team - to play for.  Both leagues were great experiences, and prepared me for the competitive road ahead.  After some time, when the 8th grade season came along, I had heard about a supposedly even better program called Bigler Big Time from some friends in older grades that had gone from the Mercs to that team in their 8th grade years.  I was having a difficult time making the decision; I really wanted to stick with the Mercs and all my friends and the coaching staff that knew me, but I knew if I wanted to further my baseball career and challenge myself that I should take the advice and put my skills to the test at Big Time. 

After the tryout, I had doubts as to whether I'd make it.  The competition was even greater than that of the Mercs, and I knew I had signed up for a lot.  After the results came back, I had found out I made the team!  I was ecstatic.  Meeting people was surprisingly easy and getting to know the staff was exciting, learning so many new lessons and getting advice from even ex-MLB players who coached me.  There was no doubt in my mind that I'd get better through this club, but I knew I was accountable for putting in work outside the facility as well.

Besides just my club team, however, I made yet another big decision - to enroll at Marquette University High School.  I could have taken the easier route and gone to a school where I knew everyone, would've had an easier academic curriculum and would've had a solid chance to make the varsity baseball team as a freshman, but there was a greater challenge presented to me at Marquette.  Similar to when I moved to Wisconsin in the first place, I had to make new friends and especially adjust to the more rigorous academic and athletic programs.  Making the freshmen baseball team my first year was okay with me, because I knew that it would be a great experience to see just how good the competition was and get to know my own teammates and coaches well.  Now, as I continue my sophomore year, I'm trying my best to get a spot on varsity and I believe through continued practice and training that that could become a real possibility.

Today, my coaches see me as a leader, both for high school ball and on my club team.  I never back down from a challenge and I'm aware that the only way to get better is through hard, hard work.  I've always had that drive, especially in my academics.  I hope to continue my career in baseball as far as I can, playing for a school that I can make an impact at right away while also getting an outstanding education.  I aspire to exhibit my leadership and drive on your team as best as I'm able to.
