College: Willamette University
I have played competitive baseball most of my life, the game has allowed me to develop many necessary and important skills on and off of the field. I am a leader, enjoy working in a teamwork-based environment, and I am a hard-working individual always putting in the work to better myself and to encourage others around me to do the same.
In high school I was the baseball team captain while taking honors and AP academics. I always set the next goal. So, I set the goal to play in college. I worked hard and diligently to develop my physical skills as well as my mental capabilities. I was invited to play in the Under Armour All-America Preseason Tournament in 2015. In my senior year, I earned Honorable Mention All-Hacienda League recognition. I had options for baseball in college and I am very proud of the college I played for.
As a College Freshman I started 9 games and I worked hard to become one of three starting pitchers over the next couple of years. My post season success and wins in the playoffs, helped lead us to the Northwest Conference Championship Title. Throughout my college career at Willamette University I currently rank 13th in starts, 21st in appearances, and 24th in innings pitched of all time. During my 4 years of Collegiate baseball, I had the privilege of playing high level summer baseball against players from all over the country with extremely high talent that included Division 1 athletes and draft prospects. This summer league simulated similarities to a minor league baseball experience that showed us how to live with host families, play in front of extremely large crowds, and what it takes to play baseball for a living.
In my most recent experience playing pro-ball in 2020, I was able to learn from professional coaches, ex-MLB players, current affiliate players, as well as compete against them. In the Battle of the Bourbon Trail playing for the Florence Yall’s, I was able to expand my knowledge for the game and I learned a lot of tools that I can use to improve my skillset as a pitcher moving forward in my career.
