    Explain what you enjoy most about your sport and athletics.
    What I enjoy most about baseball is having the opportunity to play a game that I love with my best friends. My teammates and coaches are what really make the game fun. Being able to play baseball with a great group of teammates and coaches has been a real honor.
    What is your most memorable athletic moment?
    Being a part of the 2011 Section II Class C Championship baseball team my sophomore year.
    Tell us about someone who inspires you in sports and why.
    My parents for always making it possible for me to play sports and encouraging me to work to the best of my ability, and Coach (Craig) Phillips for always encouraging me to play to my full potential.
    What are your greatest challenges balancing academics and sports?
    Time is the biggest challenge.
    What are your plans after graduating from high school?
    I am looking to play either soccer or baseball at the college level. I am currently exploring many options, but haven’t made any decisions yet. I really enjoyed the atmosphere and coaches at Mohawk Valley Community College, so that is a real possibility.
