Playing baseball in college and beyond has been a dream for as long as I can remember. My father taught us that people don't fail because they set their goals too high and can't reach them. They fail because they set them too low and do reach them. I know that most players my age have only five or less years to play baseball and then it's all over. I want to play for as long as I can! Playing for a good school would be a dream come true while earning a degree in an area I may have to fall back on if my baseball career ends after college.
On the field, I play center field and am responsible to take charge of the outfield and direct other players to areas based on the batter. Off the field, I am a member of Student Council and hold a leadership role within the school.
I see athletes looking for shortcuts or making bad decisions that put their future in jeopardy in both athletics and school and perhaps life. I spend time in the classroom, the gym and on the field working hard to make it the right way.
I am a member of the National Honor Society and was a member of the Beta Club prior to that. Both organizations require service hours but I don't consider it work. My father owns his own business and taught me that it is important to always give back.
