I love playing the game of baseball, it keeps me busy, and I enjoy being around others with the same interests. In addition, I enjoy being a part of a team, the relationships built last a lifetime.
I'm involved in a football camp every summer for youth football. We teach proper tackling technique at the younger levels as well as provide motivation for young athletes. It's a great experience for both arties because the younger players see us varsity players as role models.
As a student-athlete, I always put my academics first, with that being said, I've missed a couple practices due to exams that fall on such days. For example, during my 9th grade summer, I participated in an online program and taught myself geometry in order to move up a level. The Regents Exam fell on a doubles practice, however, I still was involved for half the practice. In addition, some people don't realize the importance of mental health as opposed to physical, I train my mind through reading books that talk about "callousing" the mind per David Goggins.
I participate as an officer in the CORE group at St.Thomas the Apostle Church which includes all aspects of youth ministry activities. Also, this group represents the voices of the youth in our church community. We help out the community by doing food drives, making blankets, bingo at the Samaritan Home, fundraising to provide wells in Africa, etc. Furthermore, during the Covid19 pandemic, I made face shields for health professionals throughout the country and a few dozen for Italy at Next Advance in Troy, NY.
