My name is Avery. I am a 15 year old high school sophomore, currently living in Montana, but most of my upbringing was spent in Texas.
I believe I would be a strong team candidate because I am a strong academic achiever that makes school, softball, and community my priorities. I select challenging courses and strive for high GPA’s, but also make sure not to overwhelm myself with the schedule I keep.
I am a hard worker both on and off the field. I made the Varsity softball team as a freshman and in my coursework I carry AP and honors classes and currently have a 4.16 weighted GPA. Living in Texas gave me the opportunity to train, play year round and become a student of the game. This taught me to be committed to my training, helps me to be coachable in my personal play, and in-turn be a great team player. Now living in Montana, I continue to play travel ball in the summer, train year round by attending softball camps, weight lifting, agility training, and kickboxing.
I also believe in helping my community and have been always been part of a group that gives back. In elementary school I was in Student Council, middle school I was in NJHS and in high school I am in Key Club and working my way to NHS my senior year. Giving back gives me such a sense of pride by helping at food banks, donating food and clothing to shelters, cleaning up parks, being a liaison for a member of an underprivileged baseball team and mentoring young softball players.
In addition to travel ball, next summer I plan to work for the Billings Mustangs, they are the Pioneer League for the Cincinnati Reds. This will help me gain experience and knowledge of the industry and sports management degree I will be pursuing.
