Please describe your Future Games Experience
+ The Future Game experience was amazing. It was one of the best events I have ever been to and really put me on the map recruiting wise. It was also really fun getting to know the players around my state and competing with them at a high level.

 Would you recommend to 2019 & 2020 grads to play in the Future Games? 
+ Absolutely. If you are looking to play at the next level this is the next step .

What is your timeline for making a decision? 
+  There is not really a timeline . Before my senior year.
What are you looking for in your college choice? 
+ I would not like to be right at home but not too far away . Mid Atlantic / Southern area but maybe nothing even beyond that . I would try to get on the best program as possible and have a great chance to play early .
 
What do you feel are your strengths as a player? 
+ I believe my best thing is my defense but my hitting has become very good as well.

Are there any areas of your game you would like to improve?
+ My speed though it is pretty good as it is.
What travel organization do you play for and/or what have you learned this summer?
+ I did a lot of showcases and guest played for a few teams.
