Baseball All-Prep B - Second Team (2017 & 2018)
Focused, driven, competitive, honors student
I love being part of a team. It is the basis of my social network. There is nothing more thrilling to doing your best as a member of a team, win, lose, or draw. I can't imagine my life without sports in it. It is the great equalizer and they push me to be tougher, stronger, better, faster.
I have been a captain of my high school baseball team since sophomore year. This past season, I held captains practices and tried to show the younger athletes how important it is to be disciplined about their sport and play as a team. I also tried to show them the right way to play - listening to the coaches, respecting the umpires calls, and not letting experiences get stuck in your head. Every at bat, every play, is a new opportunity. I tried to remind everyone that baseball should be fun and we are privileged to have the opportunity to play the game together.
I work out with the trainers several times a week. I have eliminated sugary beverages (especially all sodas) from my diet. I eat greens and other vegetables and exercise every day. I do not drink, smoke, or consume drugs.
I am involved with my church's youth group. I have participated in mission work. This summer I am volunteering to help with their Vacation Bible School summer program. I think it is important for children to have a strong religious foundation and helping them receive this in a fun, casual environment is very effective. I'm proud to be a part of it.
