Q: How long have you played baseball?

A: “Since I was 4.”

Q: Why do you love baseball? Where does your love for the sport come from?

A: “I love it because a lot of what you learn in baseball translates to life lessons. My love for the sport probably comes from watching baseball with my parents, and my dad teaching me.”

Q: How many colleges reached out to you, and why did you choose George Mason instead?

A: “Three schools reached out to me. They were George Mason, Christopher Newport University, and Randolph Macon. I chose George Mason because they have really good academics, and it’s close to Washington D.C. and there are a lot of opportunities in D.C. Randolph-Macon and Christopher Newport didn’t have that.”

Q: Did you get nervous when playing in front of recruiters?

A: “When I was younger I’d get nervous, but as I got older I played the same in front of everyone and my nerves went away.”

Q: Do you regret your decision or do you think you will have reservations in the future?

A: “No, I do not regret my decision at all. I can’t wait for college!”

Q: How did your family and friends react when they found out?

A: “They were excited, but they knew I worked hard for it.”

Q: Did you always know that you would want to commit for baseball and how long do you plan on playing it for?

A: “Yes, playing college baseball is a dream I had all my life, and I want to pursue it further after college as well. My goal is to play professionally in the major leagues.”

Q: Is your senior year less stressful now that you have decided to go to George Mason?

A: “Yes! It takes a lot of pressure off my back.”
