Why did you choose Santa Clara?
I Choose Santa Clara, simply because it felt right. Walking on campus for the first time sank into my heart. Its odd, however it was a feeling in which i cannot describe. I believe I was put here for a reason, and I accept that.
What draws you to baseball? What is special about the college game?
I love to hit. Period. Hitting is something I can’t describe without being emotional about. Being able to violently swing a stick and hit a baseball as far as i can is addicting. What’s appealing to me, is not being able to master this game. Once you think you have it all figured out, it finds a way to humble you. The college game is so important because you learn how to juggle school with a serious load of baseball. This teaches you how to become a man, and most of all, a better person in life.
Who is your favorite guy on the team to compete with? To compete against? Why?
T.J Braff, simply because i learn things from him that i have not quite developed yet. He is positive, and puts a great amount of effort into everything that he does. Personally i don’t care how good you are, i care about the effort you put in, and T.J. does this everyday.

Playing Professional Baseball, and starting a family. Also I really want to help people with the gifts that God blessed me with.

Wake up and make an awesome breakfast, bike ride in the mountains while finding a lake to jump into, listen to music, while cooking a huge dinner for my whole entire family to come over.
