    Explain what you enjoy most about your sport and athletics.
    I love the feeling of competition and being able to have fun every time out playing a sport.
    What is your most memorable athletic moment?
    So far I would have to say hitting a home run in my second at-bat of my college career.
    Tell us about someone who inspires you in sports and why.
    Really my brother inspired me to play, because when I was younger, he was always playing and that made me want to play.
    What are your greatest challenges balancing academics and sports?
    Mostly handling all the work that I have to take home to do. Sometimes it's hard to make sure to do  your work and play sports, especially away trips.
    What has been your most difficult adjustment athletically from high school to college?
    I’d have to say the doubleheaders for every game. People probably don’t think that it's too hard to play both games but when your playing eight games a week it takes a toll on you.
    How much of a role did sports play in your decision where to continue your education after high school?
    It played a very big role because I knew after high school that I wanted to play baseball, and Herkimer has a great program and it was a great fit for me.
