Growing up in the Richmond, Virginia area baseball has made a major impact on who I am today. I have been lucky enough to be a student of the game since a very young age, and I have been able to play with several showcase organizations. For the last seven years, I have played with the Mid-Atlantic Orioles showcase team, traveling around the state, and country to compete at events such as Perfect Game, and PBR. With the Orioles, I recently converted to a pitcher, and my passion is continuing to grow by developing and learning all I can about one of the most complex motions in all of sports.
I’m currently a senior at Patrick Henry High School in Ashland, Virginia where I have taken three years of tv-production courses, and one year as our sports editor for the Patrick Henry newspaper. I have played Varsity baseball for Patrick Henry since my Sophomore year, giving me the chance to learn from many upperclassmen. Having been given the opportunity to train with one of Students of The Game’s partners, Andrew Lysy, I have grown extremely interested in looking at training from a more complex standpoint. I was first approached with the chance to be a part of SOTG by Jonathan de Marte, and this internship has allowed me to pursue my passions by combining my interests of journalism, baseball, and diving deeper into the world of training.
Through all of these opportunities and experiences, I have been fortunate enough to sign to play baseball at Shenandoah University, a member of the ODAC Conference. At Shenandoah, I plan to study media and communications, in hopes of becoming a sports journalist. Writing and editing has always been my academic passion, which is why I’m extremely grateful to have this opportunity to continue to do so with Students of The Game.
