Please describe your Future Games Experience
+Outstanding. It was well run, and did the most to show the strengths of every athlete. Great exposure.

Would you recommend to 2019 & 2020 grads to play in the Future Games? 

What is your timeline for making a decision? 
+ By the end of my Junior year. 

What are you looking for in your college choice? 
+I am seeking a school where I fit in as family, and am not just a number. Most importantly, a college with an excellent education, with other like-minded athletes, who have the drive to be successful.  
What do you feel are your strengths as a player? 
+My positive mentality. Baseball is a sport designed for failure, and every day you can prepare yourself and not preform how you wanted. Staying positive, despite failure is what separates baseball players from just any athlete.

Are there any areas of your game you would like to improve?
  +My knowledge for the game. There is always something new to learn.

What travel organization do you play for and/or what have you learned this summer? 
+I play for the EvoShield Canes North 16u, as well as the Lake County Stars 16u. I have learned a lot about the recruiting process.
