What does it mean for you to represent your country at this level? It's a great honor and a privilege to Me to represent my country in the sport I love to play.
What are the keys to the success of the USA Softball Junior Men’s National Team entering the World Championships? Hard work, dedication, setting goals, and having a made up mind are key factors to our success. However, when it's time to perform, we need to come together as one, to play together as a team, and to play with pride in honoring our country, and bring home the gold.
What you do enjoy the most about fast pitch softball? Playing it with my Family/traveling all over (with family) to tournaments every weekend throughout the summer. I enjoy meeting people and when the season begins, its always good to see friends that you don't get to see all winter.
How did you get started in fast pitch? Family Tradition / my paternal grandparents played (both pitched); my mom and dad played (fast pitch) and now my sisters both play and my uncles on my mother's side of the family have their own fast pitch team.
Any other personal story you would like to share about you or your softball career? I started playing in Men's fast pitch tournaments at the age of 13, but the most important part of playing fast pitch softball at an early age is I get to play "with my dad", even to this day.
