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

I want to be recruited to play college sports because it has been my dream to play college baseball at the highest level possible. Getting exposure to as many colleges as I can is very important. I want to get recruited by a college that fits me athletically and academically.

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

Being A leader not only on the field but off the field as well is very important. On the field, I talk and communicate with my second basemen. As the shortstop, I am the field general so it is my duty to lead the other players. On the bench, I give people tips and do my best to help other players out. Off the field whether it's my teammates or not, I am always trying to help people out. Just doing what I am supposed to be doing is also how I show leadership. If I do the right thing other people or players will see that and follow. That is how I am a leader on and off the field.

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

I pursue a “healthy athletic performance” by maintaining healthy eating habits, lifting or working out consistently, and getting the right amount of sleep every night. Also drinking lots of fluids. Eating healthy and putting work in in the weight room is very important to me. As a student-athlete, I also have to work hard to get good grades in the classroom. Putting 100 % into everything, not just baseball, is very important in pursuing a “healthy athletic performance”. Without good grades, I could not play baseball.

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

I have done community service for many years. Every year around Thanksgiving, at my local church I hand out turkeys to people who are not fortunate enough to buy a turkey themselves. I also volunteered to babysit every week at my church while they held a small group. I did that for 14 weeks last year. When I don’t have sports on Saturday mornings, I make sandwiches for the homeless at Daniels Table in Framingham, MA.
I still have much more community service that I am in the process of doing for high school. It is very important to make these efforts because it is helping people around the community. It might be helping less fortunate people. It is also helping me develop skills and only good things happen from giving and being involved in service to the community.
