Initially, I began learning the game of baseball at age five in my home town of Longmont, Colorado. My father provided me with the understanding of how to incorporate all five tools into my baseball tool belt from a young age. This aspect pushing me to become a developing leader throughout my youth teams by showcasing how to be humble in victor or in defeat. These early baseball experiences in my life helped me fall in love with the game moving forward. All of the prior lessons I learned on the baseball diamond lead me to play for the Longmont high school Trojans.
Over the course of my high school career, I played football, wrestling, and baseball from 2011-2014. Baseball has always been my main passion, but the other sports helped me to remain in shape for the upcoming baseball season. Leading my team in a positive manner that encouraged others to play for the brothers beside them, and not just as a group of individuals. I want to be remembered by my native community for playing my heart out for my teammates during practices/games. Presenting that specific mentality over the course of my high school career helped me to be able to break two batting records in 2014. *Record holder from 2015-2018 for the most Runs Batted In in a career (65) / Single season Doubles in a season (10)
Following this, I chose to go to college in Greeley, Colorado at the University of Northern Colorado. This opportunity helped me grow/develop as a productive member of society during my college experience. Building the competence and confidence to effectively communicate socially with a wide array of people during my college experiences. Moving forward I will be graduating from the University of Northern Colorado with a physical education teaching degree and a coaching minor on May 8th, 2020. Allowing for me to be able to mold the next generation of baseball players all across the United States of American, and hopefully one day around the world.
