All my life I've wanted to compete and be the best at everything I do, whether it be through academics or athletics. Ever since I was little I've always had big dreams, and I was always told that my dreams had a one in a million chance of happening. Well, I want to be that one. That's why to this day, I try my hardest at everything I do, so someday I can look back and say I proved everyone wrong. I believe I can be a good candidate for any team, because of my work ethic, and my strive for greatness. I have faith that with my dedication to the classroom as well as the baseball diamond, I can achieve my dreams of someday becoming the person that I've always believed I can become. Also, I think that I can change the atmosphere of any baseball organization I am a part of with my leadership abilities, and my respect and dedication to the game and my teammates. Sports have always been a big part of my life, ever since I was tossing a baseball up and down when I was just 3 years old pretending to be Derek Jeter. I have always been persistent in making myself a better person, athlete and student, so my priorities will always be with the classroom and the baseball field only. I hope that someday in the future you can help me achieve my goals and dreams, and I aspire to become someone that you can one day say,"Yes he went to this school," with a smile on your face.
