Baseball

                      

   

What is your favorite part about being a baseball player?

My favorite part is being able to go out there everyday and glorify the Lord's name through playing the game with a passion.

 

What advice do you have for an aspiring baseball player?

Play as hard as you can for the love of the game.  The moment that you start playing for yourself is when it starts going downhill.  Play for the right reasons and work as hard as you can.

 

What is your favorite subject in school?

English.  I really like to write and read.  I like to do this in my free time.  I can really get lost in a story.

 

Who were your heroes growing up?

My eighth grade football coach.  He has been one of the most inspirational people in my life.  I had to watch him come to practice everyday after chemotherapy.  He has shown me a lot about life.  He has also been there for me every step of the way.  We still stay in touch and are very close.

 

What is your career highlight so far?

I guess playing in the AFLAC All-American game.  Being able to play on TV with some of the top players in the country.  I had a lot of fun with that.

 

What professional pitcher plays the most like you do?

If I had to pick one, I would say Clayton Kershaw from the LA Dodgers. We are both power lefthanded pitchers.  From what I have seen, he seems like a good person off the field.  He plays the game for the right reasons.  I look up to him a lot.

 

What is the toughest pitch to master?

Probably a curveball.  It is not the most important pitch (the fastball is).  You have to get the right grip, arm angle, and learn when to release it.

 

What is on your ipod?

I listen to Jack Johnson.  I am more of an acoustic guy.  I've liked him for as long as I can remember.
