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

When I was six years old I was diagnosed with a brain tumor and Baseball is one of the things that kept me going. Although my tumor is still present and I still undergo some setbacks because of it including my weight, I want to show people all over the world that no matter what your going through and no matter how many curveballs life throws at you it's still very important to chase your dreams. My dream is to show people all over the world that cancer, or any illness/setback shouldn't keep you from achieving your dreams.

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

On the field I love learning from other players and not only their mistakes but mistakes of my own. Each and every day I want to become better and I also want my teammates to achieve the same thing. Therefore, anytime I'm on the field I'm constantly communicating with my teammates and coaches to find ways for me to get better. Off the field I love to visit hospitals and talk with children who are undergoing chemotherapy, radiation or any illness for that matter. Growing up with cancer made me mature really fast and in my eyes it's very important to show these young boys and girls that just because God has thrown you something you don't have to live your life according to cancer. That they can still take contro, and live their lives how they want to, not how their disease wants them to

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

The location of my tumor dramatically affects my weight and growth and it actually makes me slightly obese. Everyday I workout to stay healthy and just to feel good. I constantly rotate my workouts to make sure I never over stress a specific muscle. So many people workout with heavy weights and run miles, however I workout doing the thing I love to do and that is to play baseball. I go to the cages and hit for hours at a time mixing in hitting basketballs for power. I throw weighted balls to gain muscle strentgh and hip explosiveness. I run sprints with ankle weights to help on the base paths. When the day is over I study fundamentals and professional players and their swings to workout my mind as well. Basically everything I do as far as working out and staying healthy relates to baseball. Now please don't ask me about my diet..... I'm still searching for that to kick in

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

Every year I collect pop tops and donate them to Shriner's hospital in Shreveport and San Antonio. These pop tops are sold for money so that they can house more children and their families while they are getting treatment and recovering. This is very important to my family and I because we have been in the same exact scenario as these families and we know that it can be hard being away from your home and family for long periods of time. Therefore, this money provides Shriners hospital to bring in and make these children along with their families feel more at home than ever before.
