PERSONAL STATEMENT
I am a hard worker and want to get better every day. I am very coachable, I take in information my coach gives me and work it into my practice and game. I am a student of the game, who is always working to make myself a better player and teammate. You can rely on me to work hard to help our entire team become better. This is how I became a complete utility player. When I was young, I was asked to play positions where the team needed me most to win. When I was asked to transition to another position, I would completely immerse myself into that position. I try to learn up as much information as I can by asking questions of my coaches and teammates. I also learned to play many positions in basketball and football by being a student of the game. I like to compete with my team, and others, to get better and to help my team get better. I am a leader and team player who will help keep my team in the green zone (Ken Revizza) and out of the red. I know that I can be an asset to any team and I am determined to help our team win.

PERSONAL INFORMATION
 
Describe Your Playing Style?: My playing style consists of many attributes. As a pitcher, I am always looking at things that can help me win the ballgame. If I have a great curveball that game and a OK change up, I will work that to my advantage to help me win. If I see a trend with a batter's swing I can take advantage of, I will attack it to give me the best chance of winning. If the umpire has a constant strike zone off the plate on a certain corner or height, I will attack that location. However, I will surprise the batter every now and then with the opposite corner pitch. On defense, I want the ball and I am a complete utility player. I can play any position on the field and I know where to back up and go in every situation. With my baseball knowledge, I am also smart and I’m a quick thinker when things go sideways. I can see the best choice in my head and execute it every time. On the hitting side, I have a great eye and I am able to execute to help my team out in any situation. On the mental side of things, I am a positive person and a competitor. I don’t let little things get in the way of the big picture.

Other activites and interests: Boy Scout (Life Scout with a goal of Eagle Scout by NOV 2020), Young Mans Service League, Working Out/Exercising, Music/Singing, Playing athletic games outside with my Friends (i.e. wiffle ball, kickball, basketball).
Who's been the biggest influence on my sports career and why?: The biggest influence on my sports career is my Dad, because he let me do any sport I wanted to play. He always encourages me to be the best at what I choose to do in life, and never stop improving in what I want to do. To be a “student” of the game and a “student” of life.
