Personal Highlights

Baseball has taught me many important lessons including the meaning of commitment, the need to put the team before oneself, how to lead by example and the importance of giving everything you have in striving to achieve a goal. It has taught me to always seek self-improvement and learn new skills and information. It has also opened doors for me through the rare opportunity to be an ambassador of American baseball while traveling abroad with a select team to play in The Netherlands during the 2013 Summer season. My goal is to continue my baseball career in college as a left-handed pitcher for a school that fits both my scholastic and athletic ability.

Additional Questions:
Why do you want to be recruited to play sports in college?
-
Athletes are often leaders on and off the field. Please provide one example of how you have demonstrated leadership in both areas.

While striving to be a good student and athlete, I also aspire to be a good citizen who gives back to others. In particular, my community work as a volunteer Player Buddy with the Miracle League of Massachusetts enables me to help those with disabilities enjoy the fun and excitement of achieving success on the ball field. Nothing is more rewarding than seeing someone with physical challenges smile after they hit the ball and cross home plate with a crowd cheering them on. I also greatly enjoy mentoring young players as a patched umpire with the Massachusetts Baseball Umpires Association where I am in a position to both model and require sportsmanship and respect for the game and each other from players, parents and coaches.

Please explain how you pursue "healthy athletic performance" as a student-athlete.

I pursue healthy athletic performance through striving for personal excellence in my sport which includes a commitment to natural strength and conditioning development. I also maintain a life balance between athletics and academics because success in my studies is even more important for the long term.

Please describe how you are involved in service in your community and why these efforts are important to you.
