PERSONAL STATEMENT
Sport is one of the biggest parts of my life and has taught me what it is meant to be part of a team and to work together to do our best while developing as an individual. I have been evolved with sport since i was learning to walk, i had tried a variety of sports and have met some of my best friends through sport, and travelling overseas has given me amazing memories i am grateful to have experienced. The last 2 years i have really focused on playing baseball at the highest level possible for as long as i can. Once i am finished with baseball i hope to be a Doctor or surgeon and hopefully work to help people and athletes to prolong their careers.

PERSONAL INFORMATION
 
Describe Your Playing Style?: As a shortstop, in the field i know my roles and responsibilities to be mentally and physically strong and keep my team engaged and locked in whether we are faced with easy or challenging situations, top of the first or bottom of the ninth. I am calm, quick and efficient under pressure and always trying to accomplish tasks to benefit the team, i always play my hardest and respect my opponents. I'm committed to improve my game in anyway i can.

Who's been the biggest influence on my sports career and why?: Carlos Correa and my Mum and Dad
Carlos Correa
Because I'm a big fan I've followed him through the minors and watched videos and researched about his background and how he went about school and baseball and his career leading him to the rookie of the year and all-star games. He showed me that it's about the work you put in and making sacrifices and decisions that will hopefully benefit you such as taking 250 ground balls a day instead of playing video games or going out with friends, he showed me that you have to want it yourself not your team or your parents or friends it's you who has to get up early and work hard throughout the day in everything you do school, work, family time and sport. His biggest influence on me was the non stop drive to improve and get better and never rest once your goal was achieved because you have to maintain or get better because you don't go to be ok you go to be great. I've tried to implement as much of what Carlos has done into my own life. Such as get up early go running get extra ground balls and swings, sprint practice to get faster and gym work to get stronger so I can develop myself to be the best I can be and play at the highest level I can possibly control.
Mum
My mum has always been their to push me but when it's my given choice she has never forced me to do anything with sport I didn't want to do. So when I finally decided baseball in the United States it's was all on my terms for me to work hard myself, and mum was always there to help me eat right with good meals and always talk to me bout what we do and the approach to overseas school and baseball and just help and support she gave to me, never once she said go do this and this if that's where you want to be she knew it was down to me and she has just helped me in as many ways as possible to get to where I am now.
Dad
Being an Australian player when he was younger my dad has had a high expectation on my to excel in baseball from a young age and puts lots of pressure on me when training, which has helped me to improve significantly in my skills set along with putting in countless amount of hours to get me to trainings on almost all days of the week
About Me: I focus very hard on my education where i can excel in the classroom. i have had the opportunity to play a variety of sports at different levels. Basketball and baseball are my favourite sports. however, i have devoted my time to evolving into the best baseball player i can be and realise my dream, To live, attend school and play in the USA is vital to this. It will be difficult to leave my family and friends but its a sacrifice for an opportunity to live a dream I've had for years, further develop in my chosen sport and to develop myself as a person and gain experiences people including myself wish for.
