Personal

I am a well-rounded player who succeeds in every aspect of the game.  At the plate, I have competitive at-bats and tend to hit line drives to all parts of the field.  I play hard and often take extra bases on the basepaths.  Stealing bases is a big part of my game.  Defensively, I have good closing speed in the outfield with a strong and accurate arm.  I have experience as an infielder as well.  I have started for Eckerd in every year of my college career and helped lead Eckerd to its first Sunshine State Conference championship in over 30 years with clutch home runs throughout the season.  Current MLB players who played in this conference include J.D. Martinez, Yan Gomes, Mike Fiers, Matt Joyce, and Miles Mikolas.
