Personal Highlights

I am half African American and half Puerto Rican. I've grown up around baseball my whole life. I am the starting shortstop at my high school and have been since my sophomore year. Unfortunately due to covid-19, that season was cancelled. In the off-season, I am throwing daily, working out daily, and in general, trying to get better every day. I will work hard for any school I attend, on the field, in the classroom, and I will represent myself and school well by keeping out of trouble and surrounding myself with people who will be able to help me and who I will be able to help. In the classroom, my early years of high school (along with 8th grade) started below average. However, every year I improve more and will continue to improve throughout the rest of my education.

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

I want to be recruited to play baseball in college because the love and passion I have for it is too much to not go on. As cliche as it sounds, the game has been there for me during my lowest points. I want to be able to learn from new coaches and better my play in any way I can.

I also think that as a college athlete, others will look up to me, and hopefully I better the community and help create change for the better.

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

During my freshman year of high school, I raised over 1,000 dollars for hurricane relief in Puerto Rico after the two devastating ones that happened in 2017. I plan on creating one again as the people there are still struggling from the aftermath. On the field, I try to hold my teammates accountable and encourage them to do the same for me. I try to hold myself accountable for mistakes I make. I try to have a short memory so when I make a mistake, in the moment I get upset but shake it off before the next play because there is nothing worse than the look of someone who pouts about one play, then lets it effect them and does the same thing the next play.

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

I am part of the center for learning excellence at my school which is a more focused and engaged study hall. It allowed a time to focus on work and my advisor in that class will do a run down with me every class about assignments. As a student athlete, this is very useful especially before road trips. In less words, I try to get as much to all my work done before games and practices so I am able to come home and not stay up late doing homework. It allows me to get some sleep and treat sore muscles from practice.

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

During my junior year, and more specifically when the pandemic hit, it seemed like a large uprising in racial violence came about. Although I have always been informed and aware about race and race issues in the U.S., the pandemic allowed me to be more engaged with events such as the George Floyd incident as well as many others that occurred during 2020 and 2021. I was one of the founding members of the Black Student Union at my high school and we have been able to reach out to our school community as well as the general public and we hope to be able to do more once restrictions are lifted.

I have always loved business and fitness. Over the pandemic, I created a company called RepFactory Fitness & Health. Although we are brand new, I have been able to get some merchandise sales. Creating the business has allowed me to understand the value of perseverance.
