Favorite Thing About High School Baseball: Walking onto the baseball field. The atmosphere of the field and the sport of baseball itself is one of the best feelings in the world. Sitting under the lights, watching the sun go down and seeing everyone in the stands, there's no words to explain it, it's just a feeling that is life changing, and the center of mine.
What Will You Miss The Most About HS Baseball: There are many things that I will miss from my high school athletic career: the spirit of competition, the excitement that builds on game day, and the satisfaction of knowing all the hard work has paid off, especially after a win. All of these have made my high school athletic career the best it could be. But, most importantly, it is my teammates who I will miss the most.

Favorite Part of Playing for On Deck O's: My favorite part about playing for On Deck O’s is the relationships that I’ve made along the way. I’ve grown through the relationships among my teammates as well as my very talented coaches. I will never forget the many spring and fall seasons working out and practicing with my teammates and the anticipation of travelling to games near and far.
Piece of advice for younger O’s players: Work hard and stick to the program. You are human and you will make mistakes so be kind to yourself. Always support your teammates and be a good sport.

What are your plans after high school: After graduation, I plan on spending as much time as I can with my family and friends before I head off to Brunswick to continue my baseball career.
Anything else you would like to share: I grew up in the On Deck O’s program and the program has taught me the importance of working hard and having great work ethics and how to compete at the highest level.
