Played infield my whole life until my sophomore year of college when I chose to pitch instead. Still work on defense all of the time. I bring energy and play the game the right way.
I bring a passion for the game and knowledge of the game. I strive to do the little things right and play the game hard. I try to let my passion and knowledge rub off on others.
To continue to play and seek the goal of reaching my maximum potential. I want to experience the game of baseball in another way to revitalize myself and those around me.
I have not competed since 2019 but I continuously throw and workout to keep my body strong and I work with kids and help them with their baseball careers so I am constantly learning each day.
