Starting Pitcher for championship sectional game, as a freshman
I am a very driven and organized person. My current GPA is 4.1 and I am ranked 4 out of 144 in my class. I love baseball and train year round in order to get better. I am very team oriented but am also a leader on the field. My other interests include playing soccer, hunting, fishing, and playing the piano.
I love baseball and I want to play for as long as I can. To be recruited, is a goal of mine.
During my first varsity pitching appearance, we were down 5 runs. I was brought in with bases loaded and no outs, after the opposing team had just scored 3 runs. I struck the next three batters out and sparked the team to come back and win the game. When behind the plate, I work with the pitchers when they are struggling and help keep everyone positive and engaged in the game. Off the field, I try to be a good role model for my younger brother, and I help tutor friends with math, chemistry, and biology.
For me, baseball is a year round effort. I play school ball, summer travel ball, and play in a fall league. I am in a strength training class at school. I do band workouts and limited weight lifting during the season. In the off season, I do band, and medicine ball workouts, as well as lift weights on a more rigorous basis.
For the past two years I have helped make gifts and decorations for area nursing homes. While not big, I think doing things like this is important because it helps let those older than me know they are appreciated.
