I started my baseball in Utah with the Utah Bolt for my 8U and 9U years.  After that I went to play with the Utah Xtreme.  This is where my love for the game took off and I found some of my best life long friends.  I played one year with the NC Dirtbags in preparation for High school ball.  In the summer and fall I’m able to continue playing ball with all my friends on Team Utah.  Thank you to all my coaches that have helped me become the player I am.  When I was 12 years old I was given the opportunity to play with the Florida Stealth.  Traveling to florida gave me many opportunities that I am very grateful for.  I would love to play for the University of Arizona, Cal State Fullerton or Oregon State.  One of my favorite pastimes is working out.  Thanks to Dave and Carrie Stroshine at Stroformance for making me the athlete that I am.  I love school and hanging out with friends and have a passion for music.
