Favorite Athletic Memory At WPHS: Beating Oviedo in a nail biter in the district tournament

 

Advice for future WPHS Athletes: Put in hard work and passion into anything you do and you will eventually see success. Take pride in what you do no matter the task, you never know who is watching. Absolutely don’t take anything for granted. Always know there is someone out there working harder than you.

 

I would like to thank all of my coaches who have influenced myself as not only an athlete but as a person as I go into life. One the most influential people in my life is my dad. Not only did he help me put in extra hours all of the time at Ward Park, he also groomed habits of grit and appreciation for the game of baseball. In addition I would like to thank my mom who modeled a kind and social person for me to follow not only in baseball but my future as a hard worker.
