Please describe your Future Games Experience
+ Future Games was a great experience because I was able to play and compete against some of the top players in the country as well as meeting new people and having a lot of fun. There was a ton of exposure that was a little intimidating at first but I got used to it. Overall, a great event.

Would you recommend to 2019 & 2020 grads to play in the Future Games? 
+ I would definitely recommend that 2019 and 2020 grads play in the Future Games because it is a great opportunity to showcase your talents in front of a lot of college coaches as well as seeing how your talents match up to other kids in your grade around the country.

What is your timeline for making a decision? 
+ I would like to make a decision on a college by this time next year.

What are you looking for in your college choice? 
+ I am looking for a large school anywhere in the country. I currently do not have a preference in the campus type. I'd like for the school to have the big game day experience for other sports as well, such as football and basketball. I want to study business, and I am looking for the best program possible for me.
 
What do you feel are your strengths as a player? 
+  I feel like my biggest strengths as a player are my in-game decisions paired with my athleticism which allow me to make plays. Pitching wise, I feel like my ability to mix speeds and pitches to out-smart the batters allows me to be successful on the mound, along with my ability to locate my fastball and my secondary pitches where I want.  

Are there any areas of your game you would like to improve?
 + I would like to improve my speed as well as my arm strength. I recently started jumping rope and working out my legs to increase speed and using bands and other shoulder arm exercises to increase my arm speed and strength.


What travel organization do you play for and/or what have you learned this summer? 
+ I play for Blue Chips Baseball Club and I have learned that I should have the ability to play very competitive collegiate baseball and the importance of working hard.
