College: Gardner-Webb University
I was privileged to play the highest level of college baseball at Gardner-Webb University. My first two years at Gardner-Webb I accepted the role of pinch-runner and defensive replacement, contributing to the team as best I could and working to get better. My junior and senior year I was fortunate enough to start in center field and step into a leadership position. While at Gardner-Webb I earned All Big South Conference honors my junior year hitting .322 with 20 stolen bases and 8 home-runs. My senior year I received the coaches award for best teammate and team leader. During my time at Gardner-Webb I was apart of teams that posted big wins against ACC and SEC opponents including Wake Forest, Clemson, North Carolina, and South Carolina. I was also apart of the 2016 team that broke the school record for wins (37). During the 2017 summer I was voted to the all star team of the Summer Collegiate Baseball League and in high school I was named MVP of the North/South All star games.
I believe the above statistics and accolades are important to mention in order to prove myself, but what I bring to the table that I am most proud of happen off the field and can’t be seen in the stat column. Baseball has taught me about standards and being a part of a team. I have learned to love consistency, discipline, and self-accountability in terms of the weight room, practice habits, school work, and how I treat those around me. I believe that how you do anything is how you do everything, so I strive to be the best and hold myself and those around me to the highest standards.
Lastly, I am a competitor. I believe playing baseball overseas is the next opportunity to challenge myself and to continue developing as a player and a person. I am really looking forward to this opportunity! Thank you!
Abilities summary: Speed (6.22 best 60 yard dash time). Solid play defensively with a strong accurate arm. Plate discipline. Ability to hit for average and power. Will lay down a bunt for a hit to either side or as a sacrifice. Good teammate.
