PERSONAL STATEMENT
I love the sport in that it offers me a life lesson. Sport provides me with a solid base to tackle anything. Playing baseball and studying is my ultimate dream as I combine what I love with an opportunity to develop new skills that will provide a platform for me later in life. I enjoy team sport and the comradery it brings with my teammates as we strive for a common goal. There is no better feeling in working hard and achieving a result with other like-minded players. I honestly feel that living and breathing baseball in a college system whilst studying will provide me with the perfect balance. I coach younger players at home and gain a lot of satisfaction in teaching the fundamentals of our game so that they too can develop as a person and a as ballplayer. Baseball has taught me how to respect and work with others on and off the diamond. I am often introduced to younger players as someone who has played for his country and I do my best to ensure they are aware that anything is possible with hard work. I like to think of myself as a role model to younger players. I get along with everyone, I'm a team player and I love playing baseball at the highest level possible. Playing baseball in a college program in the U.S.A. is my Mount Everest and I am committed to doing whatever it takes to climb that mountain.

Recommendation: have had the pleasure of coaching Daniel over the past 3 – 4 years. He is a hard worker with great athletic ability. He continues to get stronger all the time. He shows good arm strength and great range in the field. He is a line drive gap to gap hitter from both sides of the plate. He has good speed on the base paths, always looking to take the extra base or steal a base. His baseball knowledge is above the normal. He is aggressive and always wants to get the most out of every game and training.

Recommendation: Daniel is an exceptional young man who is well liked and respected by his peers. He is an extremely smart baseball player who trains hard and is always willing to learn. His is very solid defensively at 2nd, 3rd and shortstop. He is a high average contact hitter who has just started switch hitting, and as he gets stronger I have no doubt his power will improve

Recommendation: I have had the pleasure of coaching Daniel over the last few years, in our off season High Performance programs, and in the NSW Representative team at last years' Nationals (Australia).
Daniel has an excellent work ethic, continually striving to become a better athlete in all areas. His friendly, likeable nature, shines whenever he is around his team mates, accompanied by a
great understanding of the game, which makes Daniel a natural leader. Daniel displays a great set of hands, and his versatility allows him to comfortably play all 3 positions of 2nd Base, Shortstop and 3rd Base.
Having a good understanding of the strike zone, Daniel lead our State team in average (.500) at last years' tournament, and was 6th overall in the championship. A true competitor, Daniel adds value to any team.

Recommendation: I have coached Daniel through Baseball for approx 3 years. Daniel has been apart of National tournament team with me as well as high performance programs. Daniel is a tough competitor that has excelled at every level of baseball he has competed at. Daniel provides an above average glove on the infield with a great sense of the game and the situations he is put under. Daniel has a great understanding of the strike zone with the ability to hit for high average to all parts of the field. He comes from a great pedigree where he is supported an allowed to be who is he on and off the field. A great asset to any team that is lucky to have him. The kid just works and works and works - he will never give up.

Recommendation: "Daniel is an outstanding athlete with a strong baseball IQ. He is a "gamer" in every respect, with speed, aggression and quick feet and hands. He is a natural lead-off hitter who is a prolific contact guy with incredible base running capability. As a middle infielder he has range, arm strength and good actions.
I have coached Daniel on and off in his time in Little League and Junior League and he is a natural leader.
