COMMITMENT: KENYON COLLEGE

 

PBR MD:  List any awards / accolades you received in high school.

  • Dean's List, Honor Roll, Cum Laude Society

PBR MD:  Why did you choose Kenyon College?

  • Excellent academics and had the opportunities I was looking for on the field.

PBR MD:  What do you plan to major in at Kenyon College?

  • Economics and Political Science

PBR MD:  What are some of your goals you would like to achieve at Kenyon College?

  • High grades and a low ERA and WHIP, Conference All-Academic team

PBR MD:  What are your plans this summer to get ready for school?

  • Workouts four days a week, occasional yoga and other stretching and movement classes. I am pitching in the Maryland Collegiate Baseball League for the Putty Hill Panthers in a relief role so that I can become more comfortable for that role if needed to do so at Kenyon. 

PBR MD:  Are you playing summer baseball? If yes, who are you planning to play for?

  • Yes, Putty Hill Panthers

PBR MD:  What other schools recruited you?

  • Oberlin, St. Mary's College of Maryland, Union College, HCC, Wilson College

PBR MD:  What was your favorite part about the recruiting process?

  • Honestly, meeting with coaches and talking to them about baseball was awesome. When you're out at showcases and the coaches are there for a singular purpose, that can stink, but meeting with them in their office, or out on the field watching a fall practice, when they're comfortable and they want you to go to their school, that's a great feeling. You can connect with the coaches on a more personal level and pick up insights you wouldn't otherwise get.
