Personal Highlights

I'm looking for a university environment that can compliment my ability to excel both academically in STEM as well as athletically. I maintain a high standard for myself and work cohesively as a teammate. My father is a former Naval Carrier Aviator who has consistently taught me how to maintain a strong focus in my future, a concentration on teamwork and attention to detail in my work. My goal is to obtain a premier education from a top tier university and be a strong contributor to the baseball teams success on the baseball field. Long term, I'd like to obtain a commission in the Air Force, Navy or Marine Corp and become an aviator.

Additional Questions:
Why do you want to be recruited to play sports in college?

While scholarship funding is important, I want to attend a university that enhances my academic goals and allows me to continue to play the sport at the highest level I am capable of playing. I feel like I will be capable to receive academic scholarships to compliment my families contribution to my education.

Athletes are often leaders on and off the field. Please provide one example of how you have demonstrated leadership in both areas.

I try to demonstrate my leadership by maintaining a positive character when faced with any distractions or failures.

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

My parents are both avid athletes and have advanced degrees in exercise physiology. As a result, our family remains active in weight training, mountain biking and functional fitness. I prefer to start my day with a workout prior to my school work, to supplement any afternoon baseball practices and conditioning. I am enrolled in a Weight Training Class in High School to work on areas that I can't get in early in the morning or in afternoon practice. I work hard to have all my academics complete early in the day to ensure I can get quality rest at night.

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

I assist with the coaching of 10U-13U Recreation and Travel baseball teams in our area. As a volunteer project, I have assembled and delivered care packages to Navy and Marine Corp troops deployed to Iraq and Afghanistan for Operation Enduring Freedom. In addition, I volunteer at the Kanapaha Botanical Gardens to meet my service hour requirements for the Bright Futures Scholarship program.
