I started my athletic career on the soccer field. I spent two years, age 6 and 7, chasing around a ball and scoring a lot of goals but it didn't tickle my fancy so at age 8 I told my parents I wanted to play baseball
From the beginning baseball and I united. I loved the sport and so I spent a lot of time practicing, not because I wanted to get crazy good but because I loved playing. I performed well throughout my baseball career, I made the all-star teams every year and I played in all different kinds of tournaments. I played all through high school and was tempted to continue my career in college but things just didn't feel right so my playing career ended there
I started playing basketball when I was 10 and I stuck with it all the way through high school. I started at point guard but to be honest I was never nearly as good at basketball as I was at baseball. But basketball was always something to pull my group of friends together and it's a fun fast paced game so I enjoyed playing and still do enjoy it.
I never really competed in any other sports at an organized level. But that doesn't mean I don't love to play other sports. I've picked up tennis and really enjoy that, I like to bowl, golf, rock climb, play football, play raquetball, volleyball and I even learned to enjoy soccer while I was in Portugal for two years.
Overall being active and involved with sports is something I've always done and the plan is to make sure it's something that I continue to always do.
