Favorite sports memory:

Going to Florida for baseball. During this week we played games, had fun and bonded as a team. This was my first time starting for our varsity baseball team and it will be a memory I will never forget. The memories I made will last a life time and I was honored to spend it with a great group of guys. This was an opportunity of a lifetime and I cherished every moment of it.

Advice to an athlete:

When I became a senior in high school one regret I had was not trying my hardest in my sports. I wish I could have changed that about my career in athletics. My advice would be to not take anything for granted. Being in a sport is a privilege and you should not take that for granted. I recommend every athlete to practice to their full potential and show their respect to the game. Be a great representative to your sport on and off the field and strive to be the best you can be.

Your inspiration:

My main inspiration during my high school sports career were my father and mother. My parents had always taught me that hard work pays off. This is great inspiration for everyone in athletics. My parents had taught me to be grateful for all the positives in my life. I would not be the individual I am today and I thank them for it greatly. My parents are my inspiration for my athletics and I know I would not be in this position today if I did not have them.
