recruited the hardest."
You throw from which side? "I throw and
bat from the left side."
What are your strengths on the diamond? "I
am pretty dominate from the left side. I throw a real good fastball, and I am
also pretty good at pitching inside."
What does your fastball max
out? "89 Mph."
Average? "Probably 87 Mph, if I had to put
an average on it."
Which pitches are in your arsenal? "I throw
a change-up, curveball, and fastball."
Best pitch? "My change-up."
pitch you need to work on the most? "My curveball."
are you working on to get yourself ready for the next level? "I am trying
to get my fastball up in the 90's by the time I get to college. I also want to
work on my curveball. I need to have complete control on where it is going on
each pitch. I want to be able to put it where it needs to be."
us about Memorial's season last year? "We went to the Finals in Regional,
which is a pretty big deal in Texas. We did really good this year. It was our

.330 with 9 HR's and I had a bunch of RBI's, like 50 something. I am more of a
gap hitter than anything else though."
Did you receive any awards?
"Yes sir, I was named 1st Team All-Region and District as a pitcher."
schools are you hearing from the most? "The most. That is a good question.
There really are a lot of them. But, lets see, I would say Tulane, Ole Miss, TCU,
Arkansas, Kansas State, and Baylor are calling me the most."
offers? "Yea, but we are really not suppose to talk about that stuff."
colleges are now at the top of your list? "Well, my top school is Ole Miss.
They are my number one choice. I want to play in the SEC, and that has always

wanted to play in the World Series. But that is everybody's dream (laugh)."
did you become interested in Ole Miss? "I took an (unofficial) visit and
What stood out during your visit? "Stood out.
Well, the coaches are great. I really like their staff. I also liked their facilities.

girls, just everything."

in time? "TCU, Texas A&M, and Baylor."
