    Explain what you enjoy most about your sport and athletics.
    Baseball has been a huge part of my life ever since I was four, I love it. From spring to the end of summer (sometimes even in the fall) I am playing baseball. I enjoy playing or watching baseball because it isn’t timed, you're out in the sun, and it’s a fun sport all around.
    What is your most memorable athletic moment?
    My most memorable moment had to be when I pitched a no-hitter against a team from Albany when I played travel baseball with the Pioneers.
    Tell us about someone who inspires you in sports and why
    My father inspires me the most. Since day one he has been there for me, whether it was coaching or just supporting me. It means a lot.
    What are your greatest challenges balancing academics and sports?
    There isn’t enough time in the day. I could use a couple more hours.
    Tell us about a time someone was a good teammate
    This year, my uncle passed away early in the season, and my teammates were there to support and encourage me.
    Tell us about a time you used a lesson from sports away from the playing field
    I would have to say I learned to respect more than anything, having respect on the field towards the umpires and other teams I carried that out of the playing field.
    What are your plans after graduating from high school?
    I plan to attend St. John Fisher, majoring in Biology and with a career goal in the medical field.
