College: Piedmont International University
I started all four years of my college career. As a freshman I started at third base, hit fifth, earned freshman of the year honors and finished second in home runs. My sophomore season I hit third, led my team in home runs and RBI’s and was nominated athlete of the year. The summer of 2017 I played for the Outer Banks Daredevils, earned team MVP honors and was selected to play in the All-Star game. My junior season I played third again, batted fourth, and led my team in home runs and RBI’s. The summer of 2018 I played for the Hurricanes in the MACL and led the league in home runs.
My senior season I transferred to Piedmont International University to play with the coach I had played for the summer of 2018. While there I started every game at short-stop, hit third, and earned defensive player of the year honors. The summer of 2019 following my senior year I played in the Puerto Rico Collegiate League. While there I started at short-stop, hit lead off, pitched, and in one game threw a one-hitter.
I am a very hard working player, very athletic, energetic, determined to win, always looking to improve and can play any position on the diamond. While I only played in-field in college, I have the capability of moving to the outfield if needed. My pitching was not used while in college, but developed in the summer following my senior year and has become a strong asset of mine. My power at the plate, strong defensive skills, and unbreakable mental game, combined with my strong arm I believe I can be an immediate asset to a team.
Abilities summary: A strong arm from across the diamond, and can throw upper 80’s to low 90’s off the mound. I have a fastball, change-up, 2-seam, and a curve while pitching. I have great range at short-stop, and quick reaction time at third. I have plus power at the plate, and can hit for average. I run a 7.0 60, and have good footwork on the infield. This summer I led the Puerto Rican Collegiate League with a 0.50 ERA.
