Personal Highlights

My love for baseball started when I was very young, spending most of my Summer and Fall seasons on the ballfields in my hometown. There is something special about being out on the field with a team; the smell of the grass, the warm sun, the sound of a hit ball whizzing toward me, the feel of the stitches of the ball in my hand, the pop of the catchers glove when I throw a fast ball, the crowd, but most of all I love the challenge baseball brings me. I'm a fierce competitor and I crave the competition of the game. I will always remember those trips with the family to watch my favorite team, the Cincinnati Reds play. I couldn't help to think that could be me out there one day. Baseball has been a huge part of my life and a forever dream of mine to play at the collegiate level and beyond.

Over the years I've played both rec and travel ball, sometimes at the same time. I'm now playing at the High School level and enjoying every minute of it. I've been really blessed with the opportunity to learn so much from many awesome coaches throughout my life, such as team, hitting, and pitching coaches. I consider myself a team player, always looking to encourage my teammates to be their best. I feel it’s the best way to give back. I've had the opportunity to be in a team captain role and learned I enjoy leading by example. I work really hard on and off the diamond, spending many hours off the field working on the small stuff, fine tuning my abilities. A coach once told me that the smalls stuff matters.

I'm very committed in the classroom because I know how important it is to my future. I enjoy my science classes the most, focusing on getting myself ready for those college courses. I have plans to study something in the medical field in college.

Outside of school and baseball, I enjoy time with my friends in my church youth group, catching a ballgame with the family, fishing, playing ice hockey, and being a gym rat.

My ambition is to attend a college that will challenge me both in the classroom and on the field. I continue to make my family proud. I look forward to the day to also make my future coach and college proud.

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

To both get a great education and play at the next level.

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

I consider myself a team player, always looking to encourage my teammates to be their best. I feel it’s the best way to give back on the diamond. I've had the opportunity to be in a team captain role and learned I enjoy leading by example. I'm active with my church youth group and have the opportunity to lead by example in that capacity as well.

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

I work really hard on and off the diamond, spending many hours off the field working on the small stuff, fine tuning my abilities. A coach once told me that the smalls stuff matters. I make it a point to eat a clean diet and workout as much as baseball practices allows. Outside of baseball, I enjoy exercise boxing (for upper body speed) and club ice hockey (for strong and powerful legs)

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

My church youth group is involved in service to the community and its congregation, allowing me the opportunity to give back in many ways. It is important to me to give back because its more rewarding "to give than to receive"
