OTHER THAN YOUR PARENTS, WHO HAS HAD THE BIGGEST INFLUENCE ON YOUR LIFE? My grandparents because they’ve been there every step of the way. They’ve been to most every ballgame. They’re always there for me and everything
FAVORITE THING ABOUT BASEBALL: Pitching
WHAT’S YOUR APPROACH TO THE GAME AS A PITCHER AND AT THE PLATE? Always get ahead of the batter. You’ve got to have that mean mentality when you get up on the mound. Batting, I’m just trying to hit line drives.
WHAT DO YOU THINK OF THE SEASON SO FAR? It’s going pretty good. We’ve just got to keep up the intensity at practice, keep going and don’t take one day off.
WHAT’S BEEN THE HIGHLIGHT TO THE SEASON SO FAR? Winning the tournament in Florida.
WHAT’S IT GOING TO TAKE FOR THE TEAM TO BE SUCCESSFUL THE REST OF THE SEASON? Like I said, practice, keep it intense, always go hard every play, don’t give up.
INDIVIDUALLY, WHAT ABOUT YOUR GAME ARE YOU MOST CONFIDENT ABOUT? My pitching. WHAT DO YOU WORK HARDEST TO IMPROVE? Getting ahead in the count, throwing more strikes.
AFTER YOU’RE THROUGH PLAYING BASEBALL AT BHS, WHAT DO YOU THINK YOU’LL REMEMBER MOST FONDLY ABOUT IT? Probably how many hours we put into being here.
I enjoyed reading your profile. I like crab legs too, and every other kind of seafood come to think of it. You’ll have to drive that truck w/ your boat attached to school before graduating. Ha,ha.
I’m glad you were able to come back from your injury. Like I wrote to Blake though, Take it as slow as you need for a full recovery. Not doing so can be costly in more ways than one.
Hope you enjoy your vacation this summer.
