Why did you choose Santa Clara?
I chose Santa Clara because a lot of my family went here and I wanted a school that was far enough from home, but not too far. It was also a school I was able to play baseball at and I love the field/facilities we have here.
What draws you to baseball? What is special about the college game?
I have played baseball my whole life and love it because of the many failures that come along with it. I have never played a sport as tough as baseball and there is always something you can get better at. It is appealing to me because I have found that much of what I have learned in baseball can also be applied to how you live life. The college game is special to me because of the high level of competitiveness and attention to detail that comes with it. I never knew about the many details of the game until I began playing college ball.
